Man, am I 'old school' or what?

I'm still shooting a two prong Infinity rest, aluminums, and 4" AAE vanes. I say if it's not broke, don't mess with it.

In the last couple of days I've noticed a few 'show your bow' threads, and it seems damn near everybody is shooting Axis arrows, a drop away or bisquit, and Blazers. Actually I've known this for awhile, but now I'm curious.

How many 'old schoolers' are left out there? :confused:

Axis arrows, TT drop away rest, and Blazer vanes. Out of the 3, the only one that really improved my shooting was the drop away rest lol. Yeah, I did jump on the bandwagon with the arrows and vanes, I gotta have the "new and best" stuff that everybody talks about! I really like the Blazer's though, they do a nice job for broadhead flight, but so did the regular prefletched vanes that came on my Axis's. Oh well, if I don't kill one with my setup this year, at least I'll know I definately have what it takes to do with! :darkbeer:

no axis for me, but the TT rest and blazers on my GTs work great for me. I am old school at heart but have to admit the nature of the technollogy made me do it:eek:

Already had the blazers and MZE, just went and bought some AXIS arrows this weekend. These are the first arrows I bought to use out of this bow. Had been using hand me downs from my first bow. Current bow is 2"shorter on the draw length, and luckily my old arrows worked just that they are too long.

I'm with ya. Goldenkey Prong style rest, 2213 aluminum's with 3-4" feathers, this combo has taken a bunch of game for me and will continue to do it. When your grouping broadheads with your field tips out to 40 yards what's to change?????

Heck you are only 30, your too young to be old school. (I'm 29 BTW)

Nothing wrong with what you are using. There is a lot of great equipment out there today. Variety is the spice of life!

I consider myself oldschool at 30, but only because I've been in and around archery my whole life.

I'm shooting the TT drop away, and ACC's with 4" FlexFletch vanes.

I shoot Axis through a biscuit and GT/CT through a dropaway. I've never used blazers in my life. I've never shot a wrapped arrow in my life either. I have Blazer wraps that the guys from A-Way Hunting products sent me but no Blazer vanes....:sad:

I got the drop and the axis, but no blazers for me. Why shoot a drop away and blazers ? The drop away TT was so I could get my big 4'' vanes with all the twist my blitz puts on em to the target without any contact. Oh you also forgot a triple sts, a windstalker, slicktricks, and maybe some red charm loop too.:wink:

P.S. what is crackerised ?

Good351, you are definitely NOT old school, just experienced. :)
I have been hunting and shooting since I was 12 also. To me, "old school" is synonymous with the "I stopped learning years ago" attitude. That is very different than someone who understands what new equipment is out there, knows how to use it to its full potential, but who sticks with their current setup because of personal preference, etc.

I saw a 40-50 year old guy at a 3D shoot this weekend shooting a late 80's Pearson Spoiler. Steel cables and Dacron . . . THATS old school. :wink:

Golden Key Futura Rest - Easton Stalker Arrows

I Love my Shoot through rest... I don't like Bisquits cause they mess up the vanes. And I don't have the patience to tune a drop away.
