    Info on Ross Archery

    After shooting them at the recent bow show, I am interested in them. But not having dealera with in 100+ miles of me, so I have some more questions on them. I know I should asked the erosion, but was to eager to shoot other bows haha and forget to. What kind of cam system does it have, I know its a two cam but that is all I know. How do they tune, how is the your draw lentgh, does it run long, and how is the draw length and changed .Also, I see they come with vapor trails strings and cables, haven't shot a bow with them on it, how do they hold up, any stretch, any peep rotatin, etc. Thanks ahead for the information and let know if I have posted this in the right place.

    Call and talk to Richard at Ross Archery (877-504-7677) he can answer all of your questions. I am not for sure which bow you are talking about but all the Ross bows have been very smooth and easy to tune

    I just bought an XD off of here and am thrilled with it. When it came it was way out of tune, ata almost 1/2" short, bh 1/4" short, but now that it's in spec, it's a delight to shoot. Don't know the speed yet.

    I emailed Ross for the XD manual and they responded with a pdf version in about 10 minutes. Terrific customer service!

    My one gripe though is with the dealers and distribution. I called two dealers to buy a new XD and neither stocked them and neither were willing to bring one in for me to shoot. Both wanted non-refundable deposits. Screw you, you're selling the product and I don't care if you're a mom and pop shop, I'm not buying something brand new without trying it. You're either in or you're out.

    So my advice to Ross, who I think makes terrific bows, is to be willing to stock their dealers with shootable bows so we can try them out. I didn't want to buy used but chose to in this case because I figured I'd rather be out 300 and some dollars than 500 and some if I didn't like it.

    Okay, thanks I thought it was that but didn't know for sure. Another question is how accurate is the draw length?

    My draw is always dead on at 28. No matter where the weight is at. I'm shooting the HIT and love it. My speeds are consistent with the advertised IBO speeds of 332. I am pulling 56 lbs at 28 in. Shooting gold tip ultralights. At around 282.

    I shoot for Ross on there shooting staff I shot their hit model and love it I have a short draw length at 27.5 but I get great speed with the gold tip x cutters at 350 grains and at 60lb draw weight the bow is fast and forgiving the cams are smooth and easy to adjust with the draw stops I have no complaints at all they have good customer service and support
