    Default High Country Bows

    Ok; since you guys answered my last question so well I'll try another. I'm currently shooting a High Country Safari that my wife bought for me some 14 or 15 years ago. I love this bow but recently have been yerning for a new outfit. Should I stick with what I've got or look for something new?

    If you have the funds for a new bow then I'd suggest you go out and shoot several different bows and see if they are to your liking. I shot the same bow for about 10 years and loved it very much but when I shot the SB XT I could not believe how much bows had changed over the years. I shot Mathews,Bowtech,Hoyt,PSE,Parker,Martin before choosing the XT. You will love the technology changes of the new bows. Good Luck and do not take others word for it shoot all possible bows only you know what is right for you.

    does that mean I can sit at the big kids table now uncle HS?

    50 - 70 pound limbs are still pretty unusual but its a great idea!

    My dad was in the same boat a few years ago, he was shooting an OLD white tail pro hunter. he upgraded and hasn't picked up the pro-hunter since then. My uncle did the same thing.

    There is just no comparison between the older bows and the bows of today.

    Cool High Country Bows

    Thanks guys for the input. $$$ is the major problem right now; to close after Christmas. I have shot a Mathews Switch back and a Bowtech last year at a local outdoors show. I liked the mathews but it kept slapping my forearm the Bowtech really shot better for me. The draw length was to long on both but the later fit me better. Lately I've been looking at Parker but I don't know alot about them.
