Yes, Mountaineer/CSS made some great stuff! I shot a Mountaineer for years and loved it until I shot Chuck's CSS Contender!! Chucks New stuff is pretty great as well, He shoots awsome with his short ATA Horton Vertical bow (Just don't tell him I said so....).I still have one I bought new. It has the hatchet cams is smooth and still pretty fast. The draw force curve in Bowhunting World's Norb Mullaney test showed just how smooth that cam was designed to draw. Chuck Nease did a great job designing bows. 80% let-off was a great breakthrough, replaceable limb rockers, spit yoke cables. Lots of innovation from that company. I really doubt those bows give up much compared to todays bows, especially at known distance shooting. I shoot such low poundage that vibration and noise isn't much different.
Chuck shooting a short ata bow?? He must be getting old. I thought Chuck would be shooting the System OS3 with that 41" ata.:mg: Great guy great bows nevertheless!![/QUOTE
you know that he has plenty of them laying around, and I think he is still playing around with a few ideas for the shorter and longer stuff.
have to wait and see how it pans out.
