Now I normally favour traditional bows when it comes to archery, but increasingly I have been wanting to get a new compound bow.
The compound bow I am looking at purchasing is a Diamond Infinite Edge bow, which has the following specs.
Adjustable 5 to 70 lbs.
Brace Height (in):
Effective Let Off
Mossy Oak Break-Up Infinty
Arrow Speed (fps) + Kinetic Energy):
310 feet per second with 74.7 foot-pounds of kinetic energy)
So what you have here basically is a bow that anyone can adjust its draw length / draw weight, which makes it easier to fine tune it to the user since you don't need a bow press. It also is a great bow for beginners because it allows a great range of flexibility / adjustability.
The only downside is that the let off is 75% instead of 80% or better. But oh well. Not too big of a deal.
When browsing the customer reviews on the Bass Pro website it has a rating of 4.8 out of 5 stars - which is to say, really nice reviews. Out of 23 reviews the lowest review was 4 out of 5 stars.
So I am thinking sometime around March or April I will plunk down $500 for this bow, a case and a dozen arrows.
I still have all my other bows - traditional recurve, recurve, pyramid bow, longbow, shortbow and more... and I will continue to be shooting with those. But when it comes to bowfishing and/or bowhunting I intend to use the compound.
Earlier today I was outside doing some winter archery and found some rabbit tracks so for fun took some photos.
No rabbits were hurt in the making of these photos.
I have to go back and take more winter archery photos again sometime because a bunch got deleted by accident. :(
