  • What's your set up?

    Me I have a 2000 Martin Cougar, set @ 70lbs, with a Montana Trap Door Drop away rest with Archer's Choice Pin site, a rubber hosed peep site, & a nice vibrating dampener that has carbon poles & rubber(don't know what brand)...

    My other bow is a mathews outback & I have yet to set it up...

    I'm shooting an 05 Parker Extreme Hunter Mag with a Cobra Diamondback dropaway rest, Cobra Sidewinder LX 5 pin sight, a peep (no rubber cord) and a Sims S-Coil stabilizer. I've recently swapped out the stock synprene grip for a walnut one and added the LS vibration mods to the riser. Also have an Alpine 7 arrow detachable quiver. Everything in Mossy oak new break-up camo pattern. Good looking and great shooting bow. Absolutely no complaints. And all this for less than the price of a bone dry Matthews switchback. (Although I do hope to own a swithcback one day)

          My Set Up

          Ross CR334 70 lb
          Carbon Express Maxima 350's
          Muzzy 100 grain 3-blades
          Spot Hogg Hogg-it or Copper John Dead Nutz (depends on the application)
          Golden Key Tranquilizer Stab or Doinker 11.5 Field (Depends on Application)
          Golden Key TKO or Mirage Rest

          If Im hiking in for bear (over 9 miles 1 way) I lighten the bow up with the tranquilizer stab/copper john sight/TKO Rest.
          If Im hunting the haul road or chasing moose I make it a little heavier. The bow tunes so easy that it only takes moments to set up.

          Im looking at the Sword Accusites. These look real nice and Im really considering getting one.

            still in the dark ages I guess

            I have no clue what most of the archery gear is in previous posts. Reads like techno-babble to me <grin>.

            Old Bear takedown recurve that pulls @52 lbs, homemade beaver-hide back (or belt) quiver, assortment of old arrows, mostly cedar, and old broadheads and blunts and some judo points.

            Soon to be proud owner of a stickbow made by a good friend that should pull at 55lbs, and more if I want to try breaking her. Along with some homemade arrers.

              Maybe this is more your style. For fun and small game I shoot my original PEARSON TAKEDOWN RECURVE. At 55 lbs it shoots pretty sweet. This bow was given to my grandfather from ben pearson back when it first came out. It has a bolt thru the riser where the bow seperates. Its a pretty darn cool bow. I just dont think I shoot it well enough for big game, but it is a FUN bow to shoot. You are a true BOWMEN, Im just a pagwan learner....hahaha! Have fun shoot well.

                  I have a 2005 Mathews LX set up at 70 lbs.
                  #Tru glo sights
                  #Mathews drop away rest
                  #Doinker 9 inch stabilizer
                  #Quiki Quiver
                  #Shooting 55/75 Goldtip with Montec G5 BH's
                  # Hurricane release

                  I can not complain one bit about this bow. It shoots quietly and accurately. Been searching for some time for a bow that just feels right in your hand. I hope to do well with it this year when we come to Alaska for Bou.

                    55# Palmer recurve shooting PO cedar shafting that I doll up myself, also have some tappered maple shafts, but I'm saving what I have left as I can't find them anywhere. Hip or back quiver depending on what kinda shooting or hunting I'm doing.

                    My back-ups are selfbows I've made.......well I got one left, It's a 60# Osage flatbow thats a bit snakey.......Really fun to shoot and hunt with! Same arrows as above, but with differnt spine!


                    • #11

                      an old PSE Laserflight shooting around 75#s which produces a whopping 210 fps!! ) Just went to a release and carbon arrows last year. I have to say it makes much more impressive groups now. Don't use a peep, simply have one fiber optic pin set for 20 yds., more or less instinctive beyond that.

                      The porcupine is a peaceful animal yet God still thought it necessary to give him quills....
