    I have been looking around at the site for a few hours and like what I see. This looks like a good place to hang out:cool: I just registered and thought I would take a minute to say hello.

    I noticed that while looking around. That is the biggest reason I signed up, because I can't stand the fanboy crap, other than the normal joking around about it, I just can't stand the "Brand X is the only bow to shoot" kind of thing.

    Oh, by the way, I have very thick skin, so don't hold anything back just because I am new.

    At the moment, it is a Hoyt Vectrix XL... I know, I know, it's not a Martin, but what the heck, I haven't shot myself with it yet, so it can't be too bad:biggrin1:

    Sure thing! Do you want Blazers that won't stick on arrows that are under spinned and points that won't stay in? I think this is all that is available these days (according to FACTS that I have read else where)

    Maybe I should start a new thread to find out what the best arrow/vein/and points are:peace:

    You forgot to tell me what the best glue is, the best nock, and don't forget which fletching jig to use.

    Linejammers huh... why do you need such a fat shaft... do we hang around the edge a little too much?:laugh:

    Sorry man, I had to do it. I see too many of your post busting other peoples cajones... Oh yeah, and I am a little bit of a smart a$$ too.

    So far so good. I am having a blast. It would be even more fun, if there were not so many bad shops around me. I have purchase a crap load of, well, crap. I have received more bad advice than good. I can't understand how a "pro shop" can do the things they are doing and stay in business. The bad part is, I have been going against my better judgement and listening to them. No more! I will check here the next time my gut says something is wrong.

    Thanks niteshade. I will be around for a long time. I like it here. I have only been a member for a few hours and already close to my post count from another archery site, where I have been a member for months.
