Hey Bull, hope all is well with you.
In regards to choosing the Apex over the C4...there are 3 things. 2 being more important to me than the 3rd.
1) Apex is 1.5" longer A2A than the C4...I already own a A7, so do get a bow that is only 3" bigger...seems silly...the bigger the better is what I've gathered after shooting target for a year now...
2) Weight - Although I think it is my crutch right now, I like the heavier bows. The apex 7 feels so comfortable to me, I can't imagine changing the weight. The Apex is only .1 pound more, so it would be almost identical. I could get the C4 and just add more weight, but why when the Apex is already designed that way.
3) Rollerguard - I have a Hoyt Vectrix also, besides my A7, and the slide on the Hoyt rips my string apart...so I have to replace the string each season...no matter whether I wax it a ton or not. Maybe it is because I use big fat Fuse strings too...but that is another issue. But, I have owned the Apex 7 for...I don't even know...maybe 10 months now...and I have shot 1,000's of shots with it...10X more than the Hoyt..and the original Barracuda string that came with it still looks brand new because of the roller...there is no friction. So, the C4 has the slide, and I'm afraid my strings will get torn up like the Hoyt if I go to a C4.
Those are my three reasons for choosing the Apex over the C4...if I'm off base on a few of these, I'm open to constructive feedback.
Thanks for all your input so far everyone...I really appreciate it.
