what are you shooting

My compound setup is like this
Bowtech VFT Samson , 104lb draw at 30.5"
300 series Beman MAX-4 arrows at 29" , HIT incerts fletched with 4" FlexFletch vanes at right helical and eze-crest wraps.
Broad heads are 4 blade Rocket Hammerhead with the tips replaced with the bone buster from the stricknine's (121grs)
for bigger critters or where fixed blades are required I use Magnus 3 blade snuffer 125gr but will likly switch to Razorcaps this year
HHA optimizer 5019 site
Trap Door drop away rest
Custom made silicone ballist stabilizer with a Doinker added at the tip for extra weight
Custom made wrist sling

Sounds kinda kinky huh , I got one free with a set of pink fuzzy handcuffs [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img]

No realy its a company that makes stabilizers that work realy well , its a rubber chunk with a male thread that screws into your bow and a small weight on the other end , it moves 360 degs and absorbs shock realy well

104 lbs......my shoulder is aching after just reading that. I will be shooting a Mathews Drenaline 64lbs, and Bowtech Allegience...64 lbs. That is, if I can keep the drenaline in tune.

Re: what are you shooting

the 104lb compound is the easy one , its the 119lb long bow is the one that will get ya !!! Powerlifting and body building are my #1 hobby and I ain't the smallest fella around at 6'3" and 300 ish pounds and able to see a most of my abs in the off season , I figure that I should shoot the heaviest bow that I can draw in a hunting situation , this allows me a little bit wider ranges of angles to shoot at because of the increased KE I get alot better penitration and the arrows do a little better in the wind.
the only down fall to a realy high draw weight bow is that it kinda kills any chance of resale !!!

Re: what are you shooting

I'm shooting 106 lbs...if I draw twice and you add the two [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img].

Seriously, Hoyt Ultratec with spirals, 53#, 30" draw. 29" carbon fury arrows with Blazer vanes, 100 gr 3 blade Muzzy. NAP drop away rest. Arrow weight 460 gr, 249 fps. I was shooting 66 lbs and shooting 266 fps. Got the lighter limbs due to shoulder surgeries and only lost 17 fps for 13# lighter draw. Good trade. Copper John 4 pin sight with green .029" fiberoptic pins, Sims S Coil stabilizer, Alphashox. Very quiet and smokes right through a rib cage.

I also have a 52# Black Widow MAIII recurve. I hadn't been able to shoot it much over the last couple of years due to the shoulders but been playing with it again. Have shot small game with it but no deer yet, hope to remedy that this year.
