well, my daughters anyway...wheels would be a waste of time...especially bowfishin!!!!hehehe...stir, stir...lol. The aluminum quick-detach dovetail piece is sold by Muzzy, as is the arrow...we also use the plastic slides on the arrows, instead of the old cable kits....the cables still work, but the new deals are even better....The quick detach piece lets you take your reel and arrow off your bow, and leave it and the mud in the back of the truck, as well as being able to go shoot regular arrows without a screwdriver. The AMS retriever reel is zero drag....no need to push a button before the shot. After the shot, squeeze the trigger, and reel in...makes for a quick second shot if you miss!!! I have mine loaded with 400# fast flight string, it's alot more limber than the stock line they provide....pics to follow!!!

Another hint for bowfishin....pay attention to where your arrow is shooting in relation to your 20 yd, or closest set sight pin....Back when I used a compound with sights, I started out bowfishing, looking down the arrow...might have hit 1 out of 20+ fish...then I said to meself..I said "self", use the pins...My 20 yd pin was dead on for killin fish...hit 5 out of the next 5 shots!!!! Polarized glasses are a must too!!! At least for daytime shootin....lol

Nice rig fireman, been wanting to get into bowfishing myself. I have an old bear compound I figured would work great. Hopefully someday I will get it all setup and ready to go fishing.
