Just a Hoyt Elan. I don't see the point in having more than 2 bows. But then again I know jack about compound. There seems to be a bow for everything with compound ...

Gareth, are you getting Masters limbs with the Masters riser?

25th February 2003, 10:29 PM
1999/2000 Hoyt Intensity (Mine)
1998 High Country Max Force (Mike's - formerly Noel Ferris')
1989/90 Pearson Tourney (Mike's bow from spoilt little brat days)

[until recently - 1992 PSE MagnaFlite (formerly Mike's - now MAC residing)]
Haven't gone through enough bows to envisage ever parting with a bow. Every other piece of archery paraphernalia I'd be totally pragmatic about (except perhaps that special release-aid), but a bow I'd get sentimental about (I'd lend an unused one out for an extended period, but perhaps never actually sell it).

- Martin Scepter II, XRG, FuryX, for target and field
- Another Martin Scepter II, XRG, FuryX, as identical as I can make it
- Martin Fury XRG, FuryX, for 3D
- Some sort of PSE thing, F1 riser, with Martin Fury cams on it, for making people say "what the hell is THAT?"
- Chek Mate Sabre TD wood-riser 50# recurve, for traditional and stump-shooting
- An old target 1 piece wood 35# recurve, handmade by someone, for hanging on the wall and looking nice. No logos or writing of any sort. I suspect it was a personal bow of a bowyer for a local company from the 60s. Can't remember where I got it.

My nearest archery shop is in Canberra. There was a very small shop about an hour away, but it closed down.

Our local camping shop sells a little bit of archery gear(a very, very small bit). I went to buy a nocking point, didn't have any in stock.

So I would like to be able to travel 45 mins to a decent shop! :D

10th March 2003, 09:04 AM
Well, there you go.

That kinda puts things into perspective huh?

Only have the one:

PSE ThunderFlite Express ('94) (oldie but a goodie)

Would like to upgrade (though I'm eyeing the PSE Thunderbolt) but have to buy a new sight, scope (maybe stabiliser) and textbooks on respiratory medicine and cardiovascular medicine.

Actually scrap that ... have to buy textbooks only ... cannot afford anything else after that. :( (plus odd contact hours and constantly changing timetable = no job = no money)
