I learned how to hold my bow right!!!! yeah!!! well I've always actually held it right, just didn't always have the same palm placement. I would always hold my bow different after each round of shooting and didn't figure that out until a couple of months ago. I've been trying to hold it the same way each time ever since then, but couldn't. Finally figured away I could without ordering a special grip. From now on..... All in the X baby!

Who cares about typing errors? Bunnyman would have threatened to take my man card if I would have said that....

You'd have to have arms like a gorilla to shoot a 28" draw....I shoot a 29" and a 28.5"......

I just never thought about paying that much for a bow. Then I went out and bought 2 this year but one was last years model and the other was a couple years old. I don't have a Mathews dealer around here close either....
