Re: #1 RULE OF CROSSBOW SAFETY with pics

Never say that it can't happen more than once to someone. I was in the emergency room a couple of years ago as my son had broken his collar bone playing football.. There was a guy in there who had done this 3 times being that time in emergency was the third... Ouch!!!!!

Re: Favorite broadheads?

Rocket Ultimate Steel 125gr fixed blade.. I bought a boatload of them from a guy on ebay who was the original designer and owner of Rocket.. He sold them for $1.25 a piece and I bought 42 of them and enough blades to make twice that many up... For the first couple of years I gave a lot of them away ...

Re: What's a shooter to you?

First good sized doe gets an arrow. Usually out of venison by the opener so hunt for the freezer first then I get selective... Have yet to go out on a sit and not have a shot opportunity.. So many deer this year and have hunted just half a dozen times and could have killed a pile if wanted... Just l...

Re: Won a new crossbow...

I would put new strings and cables on it. Those bows were known for popping the stings and cables as they are crap from the factory. I would order a set from 60X and have them put on and then I would feel safe enough to shoot it. Just what I have seen on other forums...

Re: How important is it to index broadheads?

It's not important, far less of an issue than true spinning heads and spine alignment of your arrows.

Re: Aligning Broadheads with Fletchings

Never soak carbon shafts in acetone it can greatly weaken the shafts as it can affect the glue that holds the carbon fibers together. Secondly, it has been proven over and over that alignment of the broadhead has no impact on broadhead performance. So don't sweat it. The bigger issues are if the spi...

How much money are you sending downrange?

I am sort of a cheapskate but also expect high performance from my equipment. I am shooting Rocket brand broadheads (American made not knock-offs) that I bought off e-bay for around $1.50 per head on GT Laser II shafts that I bought on clearance and put together myself for less than $5 per arrow. Pl...

Re: Cub ready to go.

I love my Cub it is a great bow for the $ and I killed a couple deer last year without issue. Even shot through the shoulder of one doe on the entrance side of the shot and still put the arrow in the dirt on the far side of her.. You can't hardly ask for more than that.
