    Intresting... their STS looks like trash, I like the skeleton looking riser, would probably make it very light.

    Good speeds out of it. ehh maybe Gander has a winner... assuming they can find someone at the store to set a bow up correctly.

    That's no joke either...

    I just wonder how you would get mods and such a couple years down the road if you were to sell it or if you were to buy a used one ?

    It looks intresting...

    But one has to wonder, How many more models of Bows can be out there? It seems that there are so many different types of bows out there, how much of the market share is left between all the manufactures?

    some of us just have to have more than one bow, not because we need them but because we are addicted

    True... As I had 3 and now down to 2. But how much of that market share is out there and will it be enough to make a profit for Gander? Between having so many other private label bows (Bass Pro, Cabelas) and minor-label bows (Reflex, Mission, Bear) - is there enough of the pie left that someone can make justifiable revenue? As this doesn't impact the manufactures as it will impact the PL companies.

    Do we know who actually manufactures it?

    I wouldn't... Gander isn't known for keeping stuff around for a long time. This bow is priced way out of their target audiances price range and if it doesn't sell they will drop it without looking twice, especially for a high ticket item like a bow when they have a whole bunch more 400 - 500.00 bows hanging right there

    My issue was more of parts availability and customer support, etc...
    But, yes your right, high dollar bows probbaly don't merchandise well against the mid-priced bows especially when they are on the same rack in a place like GM.

    I have been trying to get in touch with her. I think she is ignoring me or something. I do not know why I understand ignoring some people but not me.
