    Well... I've been listening to the push podcast and had to give stringwalking a try. All I can say is wow! Being able to sight down the arrow. Substantially improved my shooting at 20 yards. I'm very happy with it and will probably continue. Don't like how loud the bow is, but it's just for...

    Some of my club members and fellow archers initial impressions on the draw feel of the Hex 8H. I've started to record the first time people draw back (if they are within recommended draw length spec of course ;) ) the bow just because its funny seeing peoples reactions when they hit the back end...

    I'll be testing this out tomorrow. The new WFX from CD archery. First impressions are very well constructed, quality paint and design. Shot reaction much improved over the original WF I had, balance on the shot is very good. Set tiller and center shot. Shot it a bit in my shop, tomorrow...

    My Hex-7H Medium in 30# from a fellow member just arrived this week. Given that it's not often low poundage Hex limbs turn up on the secondary market, I jumped at the chance. I wanted to share my experiences as a first time Hex user and also someone who's are "interested amateur" at best in...

    Well I finally convinced Dewayne and Calvin that my shooting one of their risers would not negatively effect the sales due to the lower scores I shoot, and I received this beauty today. Some of you might have seen the chrome one Dewayne posted on FB recently, well it is at its new home. Have...

    Well, I had a lesson with my coach today so for about 90 minutes I was using my "old" rig: Best Zenit BB, Border Hex6 W @ 30# with 1915s and 70 grain tips - 8.5" bh, Beiter plunger and ZT rest. Afterwards, I had 30 minutes during which I slapped the exact same setup (minus the ZT rest) onto...

    Got home today to find a W&W box sitting at my doorstep. I was impressed with how light the box was, knowing there was a complete bow inside. Opening the box, I found a nice black/camo zippered case, much like that of the Hoyt Buffalo case except it had W&W logo on it. The white thing at the...

    Just got my 19" Morrison Phoenix ILF riser on Friday. Haven't had too much time to play with it over the weekend, and since the hurricane is rolling in tonight it looks like it'll be a little while longer before I can really have fun with it. Anyway, pics: First impressions...

    I had the chance to shoot a pinnacle 2 last night. I wasn't that impressed with the look of the riser. However, as soon as I picked it up my initial feelings changed. I really liked the grip. It fit my hand well and seemed to be very repeatable. The bow I tried pulled at 34#. I would have liked...

    I Have tonight shot the Greenhorn Sirius for the first time. I set it up with the same brace of 8.5 inches that I used with the Nilo and the Hex4 mediums, same negative tiller (1/4") and my usual centre shot... First few arrows showed left hits, adjusted centreshot after seeing that it was a...

    Dalaa arrived today, very late as UPS often runs late here. I checked everything out, tiller, etc., seems right (after putting my string on). Tied a nock on at 3/8's and managed to shoot a few before dark. Of course, the string is stretching in, etc., but I was pleased. Seems the center shot...

    Well did not really give the factory limbs a chance! I took them off and stuck on a pair of Sab flute carbons (meds) which seem to draw around around 47-48 at my draw length. Quiet!!!!!!! was my forst impression. Course this Bow came from a friend along with the limbs from another friend. The...

    I got my DAS Master bow yesterday and just got back from some initial setup and shooting. It's too cold for any extended shooting but I shot enough to get first impressions and report on them. Fit and Finish. In this, the DAS is as good as it comes. The lines are great and the finish work is...
