Hi fellow OK archers,
I thought I'd share my experience so far with my new aquisition...
I bought this bow used from Mark N. (he's a OK Archery authorized dealer here in Calgary). I had been intrigued by these bows for quite some time. He let me shoot it in his config. (draw lenght was quite a bit shorter than I need it; heavy stabilizers). Even dispite that, I liked it very much and told him if he ever wanted to get rid of it, I'd buy it; so that's what I did about 2-3 weeks ago.
He set it up for my draw lenght by swapping modules - 29 3/4" AMO. I took it home and checked everything. I made sure the timing was dead-on for both cams with no lean. Set the center shot in the geometric center of the riser and the nockpoint square. I added the sight (it's a Swiss made AGF) and the stabs (also AGF). I like to keep the total weight light, so I did not add any extra weights. Both the long and short rod come with built-in vibration dampers at the ends.
I then built some new Victory VAP V1s with 120 gr points and Beiter nocks (I was running out of ProTours - a few snapped in the crosswind, a few are bent; only 4 good ones left from a dz.). Did some research on the VAPs and got to try a friend's VAP V3s - was impressed, so I switched. The price is right as well....
So I went outside to shoot. The picture is of a round at 50m on a 40cm target. Yes, I had a couple of oops... But I am sure impressed with this bow. It took forever to setup my Hoyts to do the same - if at all. The OK bow is way smoother and quieter than the VE and UE; really not even fair to compare the two manufacturers, IMHO.
