BUNNYMAN will become famous soon enoughBUNNYMAN will become famous soon enough
Default Mission archery

well i got a chance to shoot the $339 X3.....just for feel of the shot not for grouping at this point it was 19degrees and dark when I got there.....


the set up, stock X3 out of the box....tiger tuff TM rest, single nock point, s-coil......thats it.....arrow edge 250 (not sure of the weight)

my thoughts......

feel in the hands.....very good

grip.....good

weight.....very good for a hunting bow....( a little light if one was thinking using for 3-d)

overall fit and finish....o.k.

Draw cycle.....good

Wall almost rock solid.....very good

Hand shock and recoil.....exellent for a $339 bow

vibration on the shot.....very good.....sts and it would be non-exsistent....

overall i give it a A-

just so everyone can gauge my grading I gave the drenalin a B-.....

and the Gander Mountain Tec Hunter Extreme a A+

Thanks for the review buddy. I'll have to check with the shops around and see if they are going to get some Mission bows in.

I sure hope we get some in around here. I have several friends that would love to buy one if they perform well. I think they look very nice.

Heck we can't even keep a shop around here that sells the Mathews brand. Two have shut down recently, and you would have to drive about 40 miles. Oh well, no great loss I guess.
