Hoyt Ultratec with XT2000 limbs, Trophy Ridge Dropzone arrow rest and Impact Archery Adjustable Scope.

The scope has a massive fiber optic coil in it which lights up like a spotlight - awesome!!

This is the first drop-away rest I've used and man do I love it. Any chance of arrow contact is completely eliminated. Arrows fly like darts.

To heck with the 10 ring, center12 is where it's at :)

I used a Barner inertia rest in the early 90's(one of the first dropaways) and put a Muzzy Zero Effect on the bow when they first came out. If you can't get good arrow flight with a drop away and the new "mini" broadheads(SlickTricks are awesome) you got serious problems. The mini's group right with my fieldpoints and don't come with the baggage of expandables. May have to start a new thread on that subject.

Thanks anyway Brian, but already have 3 laying around here. They got pulled off the bows when I blew a couple 300's(indoors) because they didn't drop :mad: . I'm not even sure they would work reliably on these solo-cam bows, just not a whole lot of recoil. Thanks anyway.

I use an Oneida Aero Force with Fiber optic sight (2 pins) and a 4 arrow Quiver and a TM rest with 2312 XX78's with 100 grain Thunderheads. I do shoot with a release. I have two Ben Pearson recurves one at 45# and 52# I use for Bowfishing. Which have Retrievers on both along with fiberglass arrows using the safety slide system on them with a Muzzy fish points. I use no glove on the strings.

I have been shooting a Hoyt for years. Before that I always shot Bear Bows with Bear Razorheads. Charlie, after Fred Bear had died and his company changed and moved to Florida I tried hard to find a Kodiak Super Magnum. I think that is the best recurve ever made.I was unable to find one at that time because they no longer made them. That's when I switched over to a compound. I think the only recurves Bear makes nowdays are the takedowns. I may be wrong, but that's the last I heard. Do you still hunt with your's?

I've been shooting an old Jenning's single cam bow for about four years now. I was thinking of getting a new bow but instead opted to go finally to carbon arrows. I've been very surprised how much more speed I've gained. I was shooting in the backyard trying to reset my pins and kept over shooting my target. The wife wasn't too happy with the arrows the missed the target and hit the gararge. :rolleyes:

Calvin, Bear stepped back up to the traditional plate and started producing some really nice bows(for production bows). This will be the first year for this bow as I just traded for it. All the hunting I've done in the past 6 years was with a Palmer recurve but ended up getting rid of it as my shoulder just couldn't take it anymore. The bow I have now is only a 45 lber but I know a heavy arrow with a cut on contact broadhead will get the job done on a whitetail. I love stillhunting and stumpshooting with a recurve, something wonderful about the light weight and the magic of an instinctive shot!!
