Hello all readers/potential responders, I have finally purchased a bow after three months of reading every article and review I could find! I appreciate all the responses to my previous questions; pretty much everyone agreed that it is up to the individual...they were right! It's funny, but I ended up buying the one bow I had initially decided to stay away from (the "Switchback XT Challenge" really does work). Most guys I know (regardless of what bow they shoot) agreed that I would probably opt for it in the long run. The XT was the very last bow I shot but it was the most memorable. I really liked the Ross series and even the Illusion, but the XT won me over in a dead heat.

All that being said, here is my current set up (29", 70 lbs):

Switchback XT
Trophy Ridge Dropzone Rest (Right Hand)
Doinker A-Bomb 10" Multi-Rod Stabilizer
Scott Little Goose Release
Winner's Choice String

Now my big question is whether or not I can confidently order arrows online or should I pay extra for a pro shop? I have been trying to learn as much about weight/spine/fletching options as I can, but I was wondering if anyone can give solid advice. I am a hunter first and foremost but I would eventually like to get into some form of competition (when the budget is rebuilt). I am hunting in thick brush in LA and I rarely attempt shots over 30 yards.

Thanks for any help anyone could send my way.

Keith

Down load the Easton shaft selector programe and while you are there down load the tuning guide as well . That would be a reasonable starting point.

I have purchased many arrows online and have had no problem with them as long as you know the company and their terminology, some want you to give them a measurement including the whole knock, some to the knock groove and some ask for measurement without the knock. With my last dozen arrows I thought that I should be supporting the local guy, so I went down to my shop and had them set me up. The main thing is to figure exactly what you want (which can be a bigger deal than choosing the bow) On Target Software helps tremendously.
