Anyone out there still shooting a Mountaineer Bow? I still break out my old 3D sometimes for indoor spots. Not the fastest on the range, but hard to beat the smoothness of a 80% let-off wheel bow.

I shot one for a while. Nice old bow. Draw length was too long for me. Shot smooth though.

I don't shoot mine anymore but I still have it hanging in my collection of old bows. I think it was a Ranger if I'm not mistaken...It was my first compound:)

Yep

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.

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....).

the Bow that Chuck has been shooting this year i believe is the Vista. for a 34" ATA bow he has been putting up great scores compared to what guys normally shoot for ATA length.

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.

I have 90% of a Mountain Man if anyone needs parts. The riser limbs and cams are in GREAT shape. Mine was FAST! I just needed a string and cable!
