It's a little Browning. Maxes out at 25lbs.

Think he's pulling around 15 or so.

That little bow hits pretty hard. It will blow right through a full water bottle at 10yds.

I'll be keeping that in mind Kevin! He told me yesterday he wants me to crank it up a bit. This is the 2nd time I've turned it up for him in a month. His muscles are getting acclimated to shooting now.

I just went through the office and found a dozen old xx78's, xx75's, and some Easton infinity arrows my Dad shot out of his old Hoyt Heat back in the 90's. They're set up and ready to go. Lane is going to have a nice surprise when I get home.

You need to make Etter come out and help him cut them to the proper length for maximum stability and penetration. The shelf and poundage of the bow won't be normal for such short arms and low poundage. Sean could get it though.

This is 3rd year in a row my bow has been dialed in right out of the case. It's nice not having to move pins or rest etc. to get in tuned. I was slinging them pretty good at 50 today. 2 inch groups . I'm happy with that

Hope mine is still dialed in. I looked for it a few days ago and it wasnt in my bow case or in the basement. Finally checked over at my Dad's house and it was in his building where I left it in late December.

Glad it turned up

No practice until I can get my bow to the shop on Friday. Cody was shooting it and pulled the string off the cams. I thought he dry fired it but was happy to find out he didn't

I am trying out some new broadheads this year, the DRTs. I'll see how they shoot compared to my Slick Tricks.

I didn't care too much for the DRTs. Tried some Strickland Helix and kudupoints last season. Both flew extremely well and did major damage and quick kills. Going to stay with the kudupoints this year.
