Well After Ordering on Friday, last week, My Encore Finally came today, thursday.(very fast I think) I got it through the CSS co-op program because there was no dealers in my area. The people at CSS were a pleasure to deal with, no complaints.
After looking it over it seems to be in great shape. Everything seems top-notch and was excactly as I ordered. Tomorrow I will take it to the pro-shop and have them set it up.

After pulling it back for a bit, it feels like a million bucks. Its 10X better than my old dual circle cam pearson with a non existing wall. The wall on my Enore feels good, but I think it can be tuned a little more to make it harder.

I will deffinitely be a returning customer if things keep on going like they have. Would like a challenger If I get more serious into 3-d.

stock bow
-35" Encore
-29" DL
-60#
-os3 cams
-vapor trail strings
-tunerz
-2 piece grip
-obsession camo


things I'm getting for it
-TT shakey hunter
-hogg-it[got it, need to put it on]
-Tru-ball S&S[waiting for me at the shop]
-Carbon Express arrows(all shop carries)
-soft loc quiver
-fletcher peep

future stuff
-Some kind of stabilizer
-maybe STS

CONS so far....
-wish the bow was shipped in a better box
-wish a better manual came along(have online manual)
-wish a free hat came along with it :slice:


Can someone please tell me What size Hogg-it I have? I ordered the large 2 3/8 guard, but the inside diameter is 2" and the outside diameter is 2.35"

Congrats. nice looking bow. Why did you lay it down in the grass like that tho? Just joshing.
Heh. I was deciding where to lay it and I thought the grass was a good spot. Seen much worse in a couple hunting photos. They had the bow propped up in the mud leaning against the deer :mg:


Thanks bowdoctor 1, If anything pops up I might take you up on your offer.


If anyone knows anything about the spot-hoggs let me know if I got the large or small guard.

thanks

you need to put on some limb tunerz on it. you can call Peggy and get some. we run 1 set on the out side and 1 set on the inside. even put 1 set in the riser. these work on every bow out there and come 2 sets per pack and are cheeper than all others.

The bow came with a free pack of limb and string tunerz. If I decide I need more I may put 2 on the riser

finally got a chance to shoot it for a bit today. I'm very happy with the results so far. I've done nothing to it so far except move my top pin a bit. havent dialed in 2nd or 3rd axis on the hogg-it yet, and I havent adjusted the rest.

I took a pic of a quick 23 yard group I shot. Not anything special, but I think its great for not doing anything to the bow, and the whole thing is different from what I'm used to.
I found my chronograph and I was getting around 270-275 FPS. I'm shooting 29" draw length, but I dont know the exact weight of bow or arrow weight. I'll get back to you on that when my scale comes in.

Just in case anyone thought that was a bad group for 23 yards, I was the limiting factor. I would love to see how good it could shoot with a pro.
