  1. First Spot Hogg - $ well spent

    General Archery Discussion
    I've been into archery now for about 13 months. I'm on my third bow and my 6th sight (first 5 were in the $75-$150 range). The Spot Hogg Grinder 5-Pin Micro is by far the biggest component upgrade I've made. I was hesitant on spending $240 on a new sight, but after reading all of the positive...

    Hoyt Archery Discussion
    Hi, I just bought a Podium X with Spiral Pros. Is it possible to upgrade from Spiral Pro cams to SVX cams? They seem similar and compatible cams at first sight? SVX seems faster and seem to have a smoother pull and valley? Anybody has done it here? What was the effect on poundage (if any)...

    Bowhunting and Bowhunter Showcases
    Hello I've been using my GoPro camera to occasionally film my hunts. I like it since it's waterproof and shockproof but the lens only comes in a fisheye!
