That's hard to say. Keep in mind there's a distinct difference between which bow is perceived as the best and which is the most popular. There are however, characteristics that make some bows better for finger shooters than other bows. Shooting different bows and seeing which is the best for YOU, is going to be the tell-all end-all test. I could tell you all day long that the best bow is SlamJam 3D Supreme with the Supersoft Square Cams, but if you go and shoot it, you might think I'm nuts. See where I'm going? The best thing about finding a new bow is getting to shoot a bunch of them to find the best one for you Good luck in your search
i used hoyt protec....command cams...46" axle to axle i believe.
it is very forgiving and smooth. i was not the best finger shooter but my scores went up 5 points after getting this bow. (293 avg.)
i since went to release as i injured my hand and then bought an ultratec to shoot with bacl tension release. my protec draw length was purchased to shoot with fingers. never thought that i would switch to release.
Mine is alittle shorter than the Caribou, I wish I woulda got the LX Pro limbs. Still get aliitle pinch with my 30" draw. I shoot an 02 Pro-Tec with command+ cams and xt3000 limbs. I went with the cams beacause I do like a hard wall with fingers. Most I know however prefer a softer cam. The bow is the most accurate I have ever shot. Close second would be a septor elite with Furys. IMO The Caribou's are exellent also. ATA, Brace, Cam style all have their good and bad points. As a generall rule, For all the speed you gain you will lose some forgiveness and vice-versa. Shoot em' all and get the one that fits YOU the best.
Aussiarcher, that reminded me. No one has mentioned let off in this thred yet. I would not go above 65% let off with fingers, IMO. I tried with 75% and could not be consistant, beacause I could not feel the release.
Depends on your draw length.......short draw.......26-28 you can get buy with a 37-40 inch bow.........over 28" draw go longer. I shoot a Mcpherson 38 Special and a Martin Cougar 3 w/ straight limbs and they both are good shoting bows.....also a Fred Bear Custom T/D recurve.......man does that shoot!!!!!!!
i shoot an oneida black eagle and a pse mach 8 and i love both of them, both of the bows are smooth and well my oneida is very forgiving while the mach 8 isnt. my mach 8 is 39" a2a, and my oneida is 44" t2t
