    I got my new Bowtech today and man oh man, is this thing sweet. Silent, shock-free, smooth to cycle.. just love it. Thanks for all your advice!

    I know you have seen gillions of pics of these and many of you shoot them, but I am too proud of this thing not to share a pic!

    Well.. the sight and the rest wasnt what I was looking for.

    I did want a fall-away rest but the one I chose from what they had in stock was the trophy taker.

    And the sight is the Cobra sidewinder... wanted a viper or spot hogg but I can easily enough change that later if need be.

    Real nice young man named Nathan at Dunns in Pevely MO seter up for me. This thing shoots like a dream.. :dancin::dancin:

    Guess I'll have my previous bow for sale now! I'll post it a bit later when I decide on a price.

    Sweet rat! That Sidewinder is a decent sight for the money, and the Trophy taker is a good rest too. You done good. This'll give ya time to decide which sight for sure you want. :cheers:

    Well.. thanks for the advice on this thing DSG.. I was shooting aluminums, an older bow, ect so I decided to upgrade after shooting in a couple of leagues last summer and seeing what is possible with these newer bows. Unreal, the difference.

    Now you'll have to put up with my ornery :ass: at some of these shoots you all attend!!

    Super piece of equipment Rat:cheers:, I also use the Trophy Taker rest and just love it. If you get the chance to get your Viper sight, jump on it. I can kick myself for not getting mine sooner. Best thing I have done for my bow in some time.

    Have ya informed the other have, that something else has become your favorite sweetheart for awhile:hysterical::dancin:

    Yea... I broke it to her last night. I'm in for a bunch of honey-do's for a while, needless to say!

    I have a theory here though... whenever she wants a new toy (she is WAY into custom embroidery) I just say "sure, honey"... hehe

    She's way ahead of me on toys!
