Joined the Darkside.......Sorta
If you consider Mission "the darkside"
After deciding to switch to shooting left handed due to eye dominance, I wanted to look for a cheaper hunting bow for this season, and then see what 2008 brings for a 3D bow next year. I love short, light, handy bows for treestands and ground blinds and Mission seems to fit the bill.
I got the X3 because who needs to spend an extra $100 for full camo when the matte black powdercoat looks so good.
I was amazed at how easy the 70# demo I shot today pulled. It didn't even feel like 60#.
Another thing I decided on which I hope I don't regret is 50# limbs. As smooth as this thing draws it'll probably feel like 35.
Sorry, no pics yet. The shop had a lefty 70# X4 in stock, but had to order mine. I'll post some when my bow comes in about a week and a half.
For $339 plus tax out the door, I think I'll be very happy with it.

I shot a 60# X3 a couple weeks ago and it felt great...should be an awesome bow in the woods...I'd get one but I don't like Koolaid...

If it's the Darkside wouldn't Vader be shooting it?
I doubt Yoda uses a cable guard.

Congrats on the new bow. I still have'nt shot them but when I get a chance I will. The shop nearest me that sells Mathews is not open on Sundays. Can't wait to see pics of that beauty.

I guess Vader could have decreed that all storm troopers had to carry Drenalins. At least they would be safer from flying carbon fiber in their armor.....Pathfinder Arrow Wraps
