I'll play...

I shoot a Browning Striker that is 9 years old now. Currently equipped with whisker rest and I got a new set of sights this year, but can't remember who makes it. Also use a ~1970 model fiberglass recurve. Using G5 montec broadheads with both.

just getting a feel for what people prefer to shoot. i have noticed on some of the other forums i'm on, it seems to be a regional thing, on preferences of bow hunting equipt. not trying to be to nosy.

pse x-force. biscuit and hot dot sight (primary set up) set at 64lbs. or a pse vengeance with biscuit and cobra 5 pin sight i think set at 64lbs. my arrow is a carbon force pro 200 cut to 29 inches and pushing a 85gr montec G5 and 2" blazers vanes. out of the x-force my hunting arrow is going 326fps out of the vengeance 284fps. i'm on the long side so i get a boost in ft per sec.

that x-force is SMOKIN. how does the biscuit work in the cold wet, weather?

yea its fast. breaks arrows pretty easy. no problems with the biscuit although i am thinking about a fall away type. the hot dot is a bit of a problem. got to carry a battery and screw driver with you. it goes through batteries pretty quick. for me about 3 per season. and rain on the film can distort the view. on the plus side its no problem seeing the "pin" during low light.

i used a biscuit for awhile. was doing alot of 3-d shoots. and would wear out the biscuits. being left -handed, nobody around here would stock, replacement biscuits. i went with limb driver, drop away. enjoy it very much. i do notice my shooting did improve after changing. that and re-tuning my bow after the change.

I don't have one yet, but just shot a bow for the first time today at Bass Pro Shops. I was killing time waiting for the local mall to open up. I think that was a mistake shooting that bow because now I'm trying to figure out how to get the funds together to buy one. That was fun and I can see how it can become addicting!!

now imagine a getting yourself in position to have a deer at 20 yards, be able to draw, and deal with all the factors to place that arrow in the crease. got to love bow hunting. plus the season is a long one.
