    All new setup for me this year, finally replaced my Hoyt Vertex from 10 years ago. Picked up the Hoyt Carbon RX-1, threw on a HHA Tetra sight, QAD drop away rest, beestinger stabilizer, and a tightspot 5 arrow quiver. Can’t wait to draw some blood with this thing.

    Still my 2002 Matthew's Legacy with the original string on it!
    Can't find a reason to replace it, especially with the price of the new ones!

    Nothing wrong with that bow Matt, but I would get the strings and cables upgraded. They can look good but be crap underneath. All it takes is that string to break and your limbs could crack and bend cams. It's a cheap peace of mind.

    I agree with stickbow shooter as well. Not only is it peace of mind, but you’ll regain some FPS you’ve surely lost over time.

    Before I bought my new bow, we checked the draw weight on my old and it was 5-6lbs less than what it was the last time I had it checked, which was many years prior.

    Actually broke out the bow for awhile to shoot with my oldest son. Happy that it was still bulls-eyes at 40 yards with both field tips and broadheads. Not to happy when my son sent one of his carbons inside my aluminum from 40 though. It was such a perfect Robin Hood that it buried the nock inside my arrow as well.

  15. Fun thread, love seeing what everyone is shooting.

    Purchased a new bow at Christmas replacing my bow of 8 years. Hated the new bow so much (turbo cam/shorter ATA length was not for me) I sold it and bought another. So this is the 2nd bow I have tuned and got shooting right in the past 3 months. It's been a headache but I love the new RX-1 Ultra. Flinging Easton FMJ Injextions at 268fps with a total weight of 492 grains. Ready for New Mexico Elk...

    Here it is, Hoyt RX-1 Ultra, Hamskea Micro-tune, Spot Hogg Hogg Father, Shadow Stabilizer, and not shown Tight Spot 5.

    The old man below still likes to stand directly in front of me while I shoot no matter how many times I try to get him to my side.
