    i sold an elite i34 and used that money to buy a used prime rival. waited about 2.5 weeks for the sell to do a cams swap & retune it.

    today i got the bow. 62# @ 29" dl
    1. that draw cycle is awesome with 75% or 85% feels like 45#
    2. best dam long range groups.
    3. the ghost grip is way better then elite v-grip.
    4.the finish is flawless
    5. super quiet at the shot

    heck my son can even draw it all the back and he never could pull a 60# bow.

    the rival is a joy to shot & fun

    I concur.

    I sold all my Mathews and Hoyt Spyder and now own two Prime Rivals.

    I hear they have something cool coming out next year as well.

    The bows are just rock solid and easy to tune right out of the box.

    I wouldn't wait till next year to get what's ever coming new but I believe they change their bows every couple of years so it may be the next generation of the Rival.
    Another reason I like the Rival is the 35" ATA for my 30" DL.

    I'm considering putting down a deposit on whatever it is because I'm sure it'll be great.

    Congrats on the bow, whatever bow you can shoot well and you are comfortable with is a great bow. Wish you great success with it.

    I totally agree with ya, I just sold my energy 35 and got a Prime Rival, all I an say is wow. I loved my energy, but this Rival is lights out. After setting it all up it was paper tuned in 2 shots. My favorite bow I have owned in a while! Good luck this season!

    I had a similar experience between an E35 and the Synergy that I ended up buying.

    I would have loved to try out a Prime but it's not a brand that the shop I use carries.

    I like in your video that the cat is just there licking itself the shot goes of and he takes a quick look and then just goes back to licking away. I liked the Prime bow as well...just never pulled the trigger on one. I wanted an ION for a while, shot the Rival, the Rize and the Alloy. I like the grip a lot and the draw cycle, but the ones at the shop there was a lot of buzz in em. I also wasn't convinced I'd be able to tune one and I like the idea of tuning my own bow so I held off...I am interested to see what comes out 2017 though. I'd love to buy from a Michigan company.

    Lol. No can do. Lovin' the Synergy too much.

    I really do like the riser designs of both Prime and Elite. They are the most aesthetically pleasing and very classy looking. That's just my opinion of course.

    Congratulations on the new toy, by the way, enjoy.

    Prime Rize is by far best bow I have ever shot. They in my opinion are top notch in quality
