This is my Limbsaver Speedzone bow. The limb design is not the most attractive, but it is the fastest bow I have ever owned and I love it. I'm shooting a QAD Pro HD rest, Lumenok arrows (getting ready to switch to Easton Full Metal Jackets), Sword Twilight hunter sights, Tree Limb quiver (got a new Cat Quiver pack that I will be trying this fall) and Scott Little Bitty Goose release.

All right!, this is another illness I got. These are my two traditional bows:

- 56" Recurve bow 62#@27" made for me by Neil Jaconson of Bear's Paw Bows in Montana
- 64" Loongbow 55#@26.5" made for me by Tim Mullins of Acadian Woods in Louisiana





Great bows both of them, amazing craftworks, great shooters.

Cheers

Thank you, Gurn, they are nice but I'm not very strong. I started coming up from 40#, moved to 50# and stayed there for quite a while. Now I feel very comfortable with the 55# longbow and feel the 62# is only a tad below my upper limit, but after a few warming up shots I do really well. I'm not planning to continue the climbing, though. I think the secret is to develop a good technique, more than pure muscle ;).

Cheers

Yep you got that part right. It's nice to have good form with ah 62# bow but I could never do that. Your lucky.

I’m new to archery and recently bought this Bowtech – Diamond – Razor Edge to get started and learn.



The next step was to buy 3 bales of hay, a target and set up a range in the back yard.



And this is my 20 yards range



This was my first attempt at sighting the bow



I was amazed at how deep the missed arrow (with a field tip) went into the wood fence.



I’m now capable of shooting at 40 yards within a 4-6 inch circle which I think is good enough for hunting a deer, although I plan to only shoot a deer if it is within 30-35 yards max. I’m looking forward to my first bow hunt this year.

Thanks guys ....... I got my 100 grains 3 blade muzzy broadheads (6 of them) all set ...... shot a few of the muzzy practice broadheads, and didn't notice any difference in POA or POI from the field tips and I'm still hitting within a couple of inches the bullseye at 20 yards ......... now I'm really ready to meet Mr. Buck and Ms. Doe ;D
