Default Bowtech in velvet is just a cover up

I have been looking at my 2009 bowtech captain alot and i have decided that the in velvet is just a cover up for crappy machining on the riser. I would like to hear from bowtech on this issue it may work for what they say but that is not the only reason they use it. It covers up the machining marks alot better then paint does but if you look inside the cut outs on the riser there are lots of machine marks in there. I do wana say that its an awsome bow and iam a bowtech man all the way but would like to here what bowtech has to say about this. If you compare it to other $800 bows i dont think it has the machine quality but in the end it shoots great.

I havent looked at any of the target bows but the camo in velvet bows i have noticed it on the one i have looked at but havent looked at many of them. On the inside of the cut out is the most noticeable place.

I noticed it but decided my bow didn't have to look purty as long as it shoots great....

I have an '06 Allegiance and an '08 82nd.
My '06 Allegiance does not have in-velvet but it has no maching marks on any part of the riser. The only marks it has it from me hunting with it and dragging the bow through thorny bushes on occaision.

You might be onto something but I don't see any issues at all with my Allegiance. 82nd has in-velvet and I cannot see any issues except for the fact that the coating attracts dust and dirt like a magnet. Mine is in testarossa colors (black painted/powder coated riser) so any machining cosmetic issues might be masked compared to a camo dipped bow.

it is top quality if you have to look that hard to find the problems im pretty sure if you take a brand new car off the showroom and look hard enough you will find something wrong with that too

Yeah, i can definately understand that. I would probably expect more on a custom target bow but if the aesthetics on my hunting bow got too nice i'd never want to pack it into the woods. My main concern has been the reports that the finish starts to come off at the grip and shelf....but I haven't had any such problem yet. If i did though, I would consider that a quality problem and not aesthetics.
