Like many before me, I'm 'not as good as I once was', so I sold off my traditional archery gear I could no longer shoot due to a shoulder injury. I've continued to hunt over the years but the archery bug is still with me strong as ever. I recently bought a new Hoyt from Full Curl Archery and while I enjoy shooting it, I miss the feel and challenge of traditional archery gear.
After reading this thread I felt compelled to learn more about ACS archery and their bow's. Does anyone have an ACS bow or recently shot one? How do they shoot? Is the hype reality?
I'd like some personal reviews - if possible, because I find ACS's website is an interesting yet uncanny read. They state, for example, an archer shooting a straight-limb longbow drawing 60# @ 28" can have the same performance by shooting their ACS hybrid longbow set at 41 lbs. In another example an archer shooting a top-of-the-line recurve at 60# could match their performance by shooting a 51# ACS longbow!
I hate to say it, but ACS's numbers sound to good to be true, but if they are, they just went on my 'wish list' for 2011. Hopefully someone can provide more information on this bow line.
