Default Wow I think I saw the Black Mamba yesterday

Wow!

Now I will say Iím a die hard fan for my Mathews equipment and this will probably be for life Ė my choice.

But yesterday while at a 3D event, I seen what to my eyes represented the Black Mamba

Black in color
So very sleek and deadly
With the attitude to take out whatever may be in its path
Lightening fast for such a small feller I would say
And deadly in accuracy when it strikes
From a skunk to baboon to the might razor back there was no fear
For in the control of my great friends hands, the accuracy and determination was clear

That was one Awesome day of shooting with the Black Alpha Max 32 nipping at my heels as the day went on.

Congrats my friend for an awesome day of shooting with a cool looking bow, you and your deadly black bow will do well



Untill we meet again

I have shot the Alpha Max and it is one hell of a sweet shooting bow and I am not a fan of Hoyts at all. Don't get me wrong they shoot great but I just don't like their feel. Anyways, I am very was very disappointed in the Alpha Max and Hoyt for how the bow felt. When I picked it up it felt more like plastic and toyish as compared to everything else. I know they did it to be lighter for hunting and I am sure for other reasons as well but to me it just felt like a toy in my hands as compare to their other bows. It was a nice shooting bow however and if I could ever get used to the riser system that Hoyt has going on I might own one someday.

Sorry for hijacking.

I know he's confused, Black Mamba's are Green........ That bow is black...... Only the inside of the mouth is black..... do bow's have a mouth???

Just kidding... nice bow, I shoot Hoyt also... love em...

Is that a QAD rest, I can't see if it has the thumb trigger... I use one also, the AM has more room inside the riser than the Super Hawk, plenty of room to adjust, tweek and tune on the AM. Crap, now I want one.
