    Hows the fred bear lights out?

    I am thinking about selling my parker and getting a fred bear lights out. Anyone have one of them? How do you like it? Are they quiet? Thanks Matt

    i have the fred bear instinct, same bow but last years model and compared to the lights out i actually think its better. I was looking at a lights out but my instinct is the same all around. Just as smooth and forgiving.

    I have a suggestion. Go to a Sportsman's warehouse and shoot the Bowtech Nitrous. $529!!

    I'm not one of those Bowtech only guys, I'm a hunter. I recently switched from a Parker myself. But for the money the Nitrous is an awesome bow.

    i'm a bowtech owner but the lights out is $200 cheaper than the nitrous. i think i would go bear on this one.

    They are a great shooting bow for the money bear has came a long way from where they once were

    two thumbs up!

    Great shooting little bow. Not a speed demon, but it has a huge brace height, so it should be very forgiving.

    Awesome hunting bow in my opinion!

    Yeah I like it alot after buying it though not much money left and i need to get other arrows Im shooting 70 pounds and have radial weave 200's to shoot. Also I need a stabalizer. Do you think I really need one of those do they make a big difference? Thanks Matt

    A good stabilizer makes a huge difference. Be sure the arrows aren't too light for your new setup. Good luck with the new bow.John

    yeah the arrows I have are too light for my new setup but i used to shoot 50 pounds and I cant afford new arrows after just buying this new bow. Ill have to try to get a stabilizer after I can get arrows maybe. Thanks alot Matt

    I'm looking at this bow, along with a few others, for a friend. Seems like a good bow, and a good deal, but for the money it seems to me the Martin Bengal and Cheetah are a better deal. I guess it comes down to whatever feels better when you shoot it, but I would seriously recommend you shoot the Martins, if you have access to them, before you decide. They are very smooth,accuratte and quite, and service is top notch.

    I have had my lights out for about two months and love it. I shot the truth2, game over, and lights out. The lights out felt just as good to me for half the money. I also shot the Parker bows. Buy the lights out, you will not regret it.

    Thanks, Jeremy

    I just got my buddy into shooting today and he bought a lights out. I was amazed at how quiet and how little shock there was... I would definately buy one!
