Bow Upgrade

Recommended Posts

Jump the gun a bit. Picked up a new bow before getting rid of some. Primary hunting bow had been thru a lot and killed deer on both public and private land. Still its 8 yrs old and time for an upgrade. Plus no need to shoot a 70lb speed bow. First impressions and draw even on performance setting of this blacked out 60lb Bowtech Realm X is good. We'll see.

Trad bows were pulling me in but I'm back to the dark side for now.a341af8416b97b870c555d146860e9a2.jpge355356ec92aad0d6544975dcf191340.jpg5df291531bb9ba69f4153ad6d8444930.jpg

If you told me, "I'll give you $20 to tell me if your bow has camo lims or camo riser" I couldn't answer that question with out going down the basement.   100% black would be just peachy with me..............

I think I remember Elite had some bows with black risers and camo limbs and others with camo risers and black limbs??

i've got a couple at my disposal. pondering what to put on it. shamefully it might be a Axcel Armortech 4 pin similar to what @The_Real_TCIII has in the classified section only it's hideous Mathews Lost camo.  I'd like to go 3 pin slider but they get real expensive. also have an HHA single pin dial but kind of like it on my Elite 3D bow. last i could be vain and off load the Mathews sight and buy TC's sight. lol

I have a Black Gold 3 pin slider and I absolutely love it. Keep at at 20,30,40 for hunting and use the slider for 3D .

exactly. you can't gap pins as precise as dialing yardage but having used one for hunting i've realized i don't always have that extra second to spin the dial on the HHA. this bow likely has a hunting only future though. Elite Victory will remain my 3D bow for now. if i needed it to do double duty 3 or 4 pin slider would be ideal.

I have a single pin on my Prime but it’s a CBE and I think the pin size is to small for me

Did you get it set up and shoot it yet ? If so what’s your thoughts on it ?

I like the .01 sights better as well . I also like a dark pin ,the less light burst the better.

Get a screw in verifier for your peep.....clears the pins right up and eliminates the star burst on the pins.

We shot with my friend that has one last Sunday and it’s a disaster in bad weather. I use the housing as my regular peep but took the verifier out for that reason

Why didn't he just pull the verifier...or I know guys that make a homemade cover to clamp around the peep when not shooting.

I personally don't use one outdoors....but the lights indoor don't mix with my contacts so it seems to help in situations like that.
