    Default Got a new toy Bowtech Sentinel FLX

    I just got a 2010 Bowtech Sentinel FLX in Blue Flame. I shot the Sentinel last year for 3D and it was a good shooter. The only flaw I found was it tuned inside of center. Not really a big deal but it was there.

    So the 2010 arrives. I put a trophy taker spring steel on it. Set the center shot right down the middle and set the nocking point level and tied my loop.

    Walked out to the paper tuning rack with Goldtip Series 22 Pro and shot a perfect bullet hole, first arrow.

    The bow is set from the factory at 29" (didn't measure yet) and 61.1 # (confirmed on my scale).

    I have not chrono'd the bow yet but the birth cert says 321 at 29". It looks like I'll be able to get another pound or two out of it which will be great for those 333gr Goldtips.

    No Pics??

    The FLX Guard will undoubtedly allow Bows to be tuned easily straight down the middle for most archers.

    Well, I've been trying to set up my 09 Sentinel and have about given up. I can't get it to group. I've gone from way inside center to out and nothing seems to help. Tried different tip weights in my 250 LJ's ranging from 90 up to 140. Changed poundage from 61 to 70...very frustrating. About ready to go back to my ole Rival Pro!

    Sorry to hear that I shot an 09 BowTech Sentinel last year and I honestly believe it was one of the easiest bows to group with out to 60 yards I ever shot. I think it took less than 30 minutes to tune and it tuned right down the middle.

    I killed my 1st Rio Turkey with it last Spring!

    I agree with MeanV... I didn't have any trouble getting this bow to group at all. The 2010 should be even better.

    I had a 09 as well could not get it to tune for spit, sold it and got the 10 tuned right down the middle took all of two shots for a perfect tear. love the way this bow shoots and groups and now that it tunes i know that any bad shot is on me.

    I am going to order a 2010 Sentinel FLX in a couple of weeks. I have always shot a 70 lb bow but I am thinking of dropping back to a 60lb rig. I only hunt deer and turkey so I don't really need all that poundage and it would be nice to be able to hold back a bit longer on those turkeys. can I ask what kind of speed you are getting with your set up?
    Thanks
