    Default New Bowtechs

    Both of my sons just got their new Tomkats in. I was very surprised at how well those bows shoot. They are pretty fast and quiet. It only took them a couple of days to start peeling the fletchings off their arrows. That is when I had to tell them that is why they put more than one black circle on the target. One thing that I found odd was that the Tomkats were noticably more quiet than my Tribute. All in all we are very pleased with the new bows. I am waiting on my chrono to see what we are shooting. Deer season is just around the corner for us.

    Those Tomkats are great starter hunting bows. I shot one before I bought my XT and it is a fantastic bow. Of course the Tribute is a good one too. Glad to hear your sons are having fun and costing you more money in vanes. Tell them I want some pics of them shooting and some closesups of their bows.

    You cant go wrong with a Bowtech of anykind. I shoot a Mathews Drenalin but the Bowtech Guardian, to me draws smoother. There are so many good bows out there its hard to go wrong. It's all about what you feel comfortbale shooting. Congrats with getting your kids involved. I hope they get a get a big one. This year is my sons first year with a gun next year a bow.

    I will get some pics to post of them. I have been out of bowhunting for alomost 14 years and I am now just getting back in. I shot the Tomkats and the next day went and picked up a Tirbute. I shot an XT, but the Tribute just felt better to me. I will keep you posted.

    TomKat is a great bow for the money!! As far as noise compared to the Tribute 90+% of noise can be traced back to setup and accesssories. I'd be checking everything out. The Tribute I shot last year was very quiet

    That weener dog loves to have his picture taken. To say the least, I would be kicked out before the weenie dogs go.

    I talked to my youngest son the other day and he gave me the report of a 2 inch 4 arrow group @ 30 yds. That is pretty go considering he has only shot a bow for 3 weeks. October 1 is slow to get here and we can't wait.

    I just noticed that my son changed out my sights. I bought the bow with Trophy Ridge vertical pins. I found some Tru Glo sights with the LED light for a good price but did not have them on the bow when I left for work. I guess that he changed them for me.

    I could not decide on what rest to get with the bow, so I just put a WB on it for now. Any ideas on a good hunting rest? The top rest when I quit bow hunting years ago was a TM hunter on a 4" overdraw. Things have changed since then.

    The QAD is a very popular rest. Personally I think there is not a better dropaway rest on the market than the Limb Driver

    The only rest that I have shot latley is the WB. I was looking at the QAD as one of my first choices. I do want to get the rest that I will shot for a while before I tune the bow for max performance.

    Thanks for the input.

    I'm really liking my Limb Driver.
    Coupled with the rubber arrow holder on the shelf it's pretty much the same as any containment style rest.

    I have used, sold, and setup several Dropaway rests and to me the Limb Driver is the clear choice
