    So during my days off I bought me a new bow. I ended up buying the bear effect. I shot both that one and the method. To me they both shot great. But the grip of the effect felt better to me. Both were set up RTH packages. I left the trophy ridge quiver on but ended up putting on the rip cord code red rest, i got the new IQ with the retina dot thing (ordering in the trophy ridge react sight). An a 10" bee stinger stabilizer. I'm also gonna look into getting an off set quick disconnect with an 8" stinger. next is broad heads,new arrows, an new targets.
    Well let me know what y'all think. Thanks for taking time to look.

    Sweet looking setup. No I have another favor to ask. Please take the time to post a pic of the first thing you whack with it. :tu: If you don't hunt just post up some pics of how you are shooting. But most importantly just have fun!!

    Thanks y'all. I was only able to shoot it a couple days before I had to go to work for 2 weeks. BTW my living schedule sucks. So I'm shooting eastons arrows 400 but I'm wondering if I need to go to 340 its right around 60 lbs an I got a 28" draw. I'm sure soon enough I'll max out in poundage. So I think that that the 340 would be perfect. O an does anybody have that new IQ sight with the retna dot thing. An if so do you like it.
    Thanks

    Nice looking bow.
    You should be fine with the 400 at 28 and 60. If you got above 65 you might want to think about the 340.

    this may sound like a stupid question but what exactly does poundage/draw length have to do with weight of your arrows I shoot a 400g axis 60# at 27.5 am I ok was kinda planning on going up in poundage at some point....

    Super nice bow!!

    Watch out for that Bee Stinger stabilizer though... Mine broke within a year...Weak spot where it screws to the bow

    It doesn't really have that much to do with the weight of your arrows (although at least 5 grains of arrow weight per pound of draw weight is recommended). The arrow spine is what is affected by draw weight and length. The more weight you draw, or the longer your arrow, you will likely need a stiffer arrow spine.
