    Talking 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.

    If it's the Darkside wouldn't Vader be shooting it?

    I doubt Yoda uses a cable guard.

    There are only 2 Sith at any one time.. Mathews would definitley not like those sales numbers....


    Besides Vader can kill stuff by just pointing at it...

    And no.......... A Cable Guard Yoda Does Not Need......

    there are only 2 Sith at a time. The master and the Apprentice. There can be a lot of dark jedi. You need to play more video games :P

    btw - yeah Mission is one heck of a bow. I love how the "low end" and "High end" are seperated by riser cutouts...
    No I'm not dead

    Video games are made up for revenue. Movies are the real deal... Besides, my 7 yr old won't give up the controller......

    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.....
