Thanks fellas! Just had to set the bow down for a while.

I can't wait to get back in the run of things and start some 3d shoots and pig hunting

Welcome back bro, I had to put the bow down for a month due to a bad shoulder and lack of time due to a new job, I'm almost back to 100%, just going to wait another couple weeks to fully heal it

I sure hope everything heals 100%.

Yeah I had a rotater cuff injury 10 years ago, I was shooting my bow everyday and eventually it started to flare up so bad i could barely pull my bow back without my neck feeling like it was broken, I believe that injury is coming back because I really never got it 100% healed

I now shoot for form and practice with a 35# Tamerlane, and have a 45# Grizzly and Kodiak Hunter for hunting, but can limit the number of shots daily with those bows. I like to shoot for over an hour in the summer and every night with heavier bows gave me tendonitis, numb fingertips and rotator cuff issues. With my glass Ben Pearson or Tamerlane I can shoot as long as I want, as often as I want.
The one that put the hurt on me is a 55# Sage. Too much for daily practice.
The older we get, the more we have to pay attention to this kind of stuff...

I'm going to buy a new bow soon, not sure what though, was thinking a Hoyt buffalo or a bob lee signature, that's when I'll starting to shoot the stick again, I've shot my compound a few times but it gets so damn boring quick

Iv owned 2 buffalos at the same time brother way back when they came out.

Now owning my DAS with carbon Dryad LB limbs, the buffalo preforms nothing like this bow I currently shoot

The 40lb 60" was a dream to 3d shoot all day long. You just didn't have much option with shaft choices being cut 1/8.

I would kill to get a bob lee some day

Yeah I'm leaning towards the bob lee or a ilf set up, I'm a huge fan of their compounds, only reason why I considered it but I wasn't going to buy new, there is a shop that has used buffalos for 300$, but still leaning towards a Bob lee because they are made 15 mins down the road from where I work, so I can go there and shoot one and order a custom one face to face with Bob Lee himself
