So been out of the serious archery game for about 10 years. But what do you know, getting out of LA ignited the fire again. I can finally set up a small range in my backyard and good archery shops are closer than 1.5hrs away. Drove around to 3 different shops and shot all the new bows I could last week -- Prime, Bowtech, Hoyt, Matthews, Elite. First off, I think I would have been happy walking out with any of them... all fine bows. But decided on the Hoyt Helix, even shot their new Carbon RX-3's and preferred the Helix -- allot cheaper too. Didn't have the color I wanted (Storm) so placed the order and now the waiting game begins! Said it might be 4 weeks. Might be enough time to plan an archery trip so I don't have to "only" shoot 90lb South Florida deer this year. Wanted to do Kansas Whitetails, but forgot to apply for tags! So maybe I'll explore Oklahoma nearby... Anyone else get new gear this year?
