    I decided this year I was going to buy a new toy. Shot a few different bows Mathews, Hoyt, and Prime. I didn't like the Hoyt this year at all, and I have always been a Hoyt nut. Shot the Mathews Halon 6 and thought it shot well. Then I shot the Prime Rize and it blew me away. It has no hand shock, fits prefect in my hand and is definitely the right bow for me. I went with the Elevated II pattern, set @ 28.5" draw, 71.8 lbs. Here it is...

    Wow. Wanted one of these to back up my Elite but I have a feeling they would have to take turns being backup! Nice!

    Same here. I like the Prime Rival so much I bought two and sold both my Mathews.

    60lb for target and 65lb for hunting.

    Primes have always intrigued me. Have not shot one yet though. Nice looking rig!

    I like to think I am a decent shot with my bow, but ever since I bought this Prime I pick new spots to shoot on the target for every arrow because I am breaking arrows. Awesome shooting, no hand shock, solid back wall, the grip is perfect. I shoot it every day

    Sweet bow, I've always wanted to shoot a prime and an obsession. Heard nothing but good things about both!
