Thread: DTM SS355-Krptek All Camo Version

  1. #1

    DTM SS355-Kryptek All Camo Version

    I just could not get a good pic today, I will try again. I really like this camo and it almost seems to "adapt" to the lighting. I ordered this bow with everything dipped in the Kryptek Highlander, including the barrel, scope mount and stirrup. The camo looks very different in my shop compared to outside. Derrick is wanting input, what do you guys think?

    And here is one from the shop...looks very different.

    Rick- he has some stocks that were dipped in the typhoon at the same time that these were dipped in the highlander. I think the plan is to use typhoon limbs and stock and black barrel. I'm like you, can't wait to see it.

    It kinda reminds me of a rattlesnake. The highlander.

    I am trying to get a handle on how functional this camo will be. I looked at the bow against a group of small oaks that still have a few leaves and it seemed to blend, in an evergreen environment you notice that there is some green to this camo, in a mesquite it looks great, and it puzzles me that it looks very different in the sun and shade. I think it will work nicely, I will ask a few of my deer friends!

    No matter the finish.....I am a huge fan of an entire camoed look. Barrel, stock, limbs, scope rail, cams (if applicable), scope.

    Looks great!!

    Very nice. I'm curious as to how the paint will hold up on the barrel.

    We are also wondering about the wear on the barrel. The "dipper" thinks the clearcoat will be tough, but time will tell. The "safety net" is we could remove the film from the top of the barrel and go with the black underneath.....if the string doesn't do that for us! I will let you know how it holds up.

    The outside pic looks more brown or tan , like desert storm camo , but the inside pic looks more green, like it reacts to the different light ... Hmmm... It's chameleon !!!! ... starting to grow on me I think ! nice looking B!

    I thought the same thing when I first saw it,, Desert Storm.

    Might look even better with some burn marks down the runway

    I have three Middleton 330 bows coming my way soon. I hope they look this good. Seems like Derrick is paying a lot of attention to detail with your bow! Thanks for the pictures and good work Derrick.

    Looks good. But it makes me ask. How much more is it to get one all camoed over the prices he has listed?

    Hope to upgrade someday.

    Randy-"chameleon", lol, this pattern is strange. My analytical brain says it can't be changing at all, but it looks different in different environments.

    RH- I said the same thing on the "burn marks"! Kind of like "notches" in the old westerns.

    Wheelie- I don't think he is offering them this way yet until he sees some reaction to it (or demand for it) and until he sees how/if the barrel wears. The dipper (no disrespect meant for the hydrographic engineer!) did say that it would be easy to tape off the top of the barrel and leave it black, that might be the best approach. I will post an "after" pic after I have shot it a good bit. I had the Leupold scope and rings dipped locally before the bow arrived.
