· "Shock n Awe"
For hunting I don't think that there's a better option. I'm considering switching over during the off season
I consider the same. As much as some people hate them, they workI was going to take the compound hunting so I shot I shot about 8 shots and everything went fine, I shot number nine and thought I broke a nock and the arrow went low. I checked the arrow and it was fine, I took another shot and the same thing. What had happen was my timing was off, apparently I had a little stretch in my cable. It’s not the fault of the drop a way but shows how things can happen. I had that happen a couple of years ago also so I decided to go back to the WB for reliability.
Again, it wasn’t the fault of the drop away, I should have stayed on it better, but shooting traditional I just haven’t shot the compound much.
They sure do, I was shocked at how well I shot just bolting it on. Everything was set from taking it off years ago plus I had the riser marked out for placement. I just had to do a little side adjustment and it was good.I consider the same. As much as some people hate them, they work
I'd make that move now. 😝I revisited the WB on a secondary bow I set up this past summer. Shooting at 20-30-40 yards, I saw no appreciable difference in my group sizes. If I don’t like the QAD I’m going to on my RX7, after years of Hamskea’s, I’ll get a biscuit. It’ll be the opposite of a tuxedo on a pig.
I saw the same thing. Hamskea on my last bow. Upgraded to a new bow and put a WB on the old bow just to have something and did not notice a difference in grouping.I revisited the WB on a secondary bow I set up this past summer.

Years ago when I had them I shot a whole lot of arrows almost every day, I would replace the biscuit every three years with little wear. Wear can increase depending on arrow size and mostly finish. I imagine anodized aluminum would last for ever. It’s obvious with the WB, you can see worn bristles if it’s wearing out, it’s not so obvious when cables stretch.I shot a WB for about 18 months when I first shifted back to compounds in 2010. After a while I started shooting lower and lower......the bristles were wearing out. So the WB guys say, "Well what did you expect, they make replacements for a reason. Got to check such things." So now I shoot Hamskea limb driven rests and say the same thing about stretched activation cords, "Well what did you expect, they are made to easily adjust for a reason. Got to check such things." I have a brand new WB in my archery tackle box that a friend sent me a decade ago. It has never been out in the open air......probably never will. To each their own.....but there is nothing "fool-proof"......it all has to be check and maintained.
