    If you consider Mission "the darkside" :D

    After deciding to switch to shooting left handed due to eye dominance, I wanted to look for a cheaper hunting bow for this season, and then see what 2008 brings for a 3D bow next year. I love short, light, handy bows for treestands and ground blinds and Mission seems to fit the bill.

    I got the X3 because who needs to spend an extra $100 for full camo when the matte black powdercoat looks so good. :thumb:

    I was amazed at how easy the 70# demo I shot today pulled. It didn't even feel like 60#.

    Another thing I decided on which I hope I don't regret is 50# limbs. As smooth as this thing draws it'll probably feel like 35.

    Sorry, no pics yet. The shop had a lefty 70# X4 in stock, but had to order mine. I'll post some when my bow comes in about a week and a half.

    For $339 plus tax out the door, I think I'll be very happy with it. :rockon:

    If it's the Darkside wouldn't Vader be shooting it? :noidea:

    I doubt Yoda uses a cable guard. :p

    There are only 2 Sith at any one time.. Mathews would definitley not like those sales numbers....


    Besides Vader can kill stuff by just pointing at it...:biggrin1:

    there are only 2 Sith at a time. The master and the Apprentice. There can be a lot of dark jedi. You need to play more video games :p

    btw - yeah Mission is one heck of a bow. I love how the "low end" and "High end" are seperated by riser cutouts... :doh:

    Video games are made up for revenue. Movies are the real deal... Besides, my 7 yr old won't give up the controller......:noidea:

    I guess Vader could have decreed that all storm troopers had to carry Drenalins. At least they would be safer from flying carbon fiber in their armor.....:tape:
