    Default Camo or Target finish

    Do most 3D competitors in open class shoot target finish bows or camo patterns?

    depends on the class, hunter class has lots of camo bows, the higher classes are definately more weighted twards target colors

    Camo bows are cheaper than colored bows for the most part... Alot of guys hunt with there 3D bows hence they buy what there going to use. If you don't plan to use your target bow to hunt with you can get a pretty bow but it's going to cost you a little more in the long run. Pretty bows are nice to have but It has to have a shooter behind it to make it perform....

    yah anywhere from $50-$200 is what i have seen, you can always get a camo bow and have it dipped or powdercoated

    If you take your new camo bow and get it painted or powder coated you warranty will be null and void. Also when you show up with a fancy target rig to a shoot you better be able to shoot it well or your buddys with camo bows will bust your chops.

    If you try to save money by buying a camo bow and then having it painted or powdercoated, you might as well have bought a target bow in the first place. You probably will spend the same amount and you will still have a warranty.

    Of course if you buy used that is a different story altogether.
