Re: Hoyt FastFlite Compound Bow
yeah its in superb shape for its age. I think this ones from around 89 or 90 so its going on 20. Pull weight is adjustable from 65 to 80 lbs. and the string as best I can tell is in decent shape. cams are in good shape and the limbs are clean. i spent a good hour scoping it out before taking it home, cost me 70 bucks out the door. Im gonna take it over to smithfield archery in ft. worth tomorrow or the next day to have them give it a good tune up. The draw length is about as far as I can reach so ill have to have it shortened up a bit. I shot a practice arrow with it after checking limb tension and my arrow split when it hit the ground. This is a powerful bow, the most powerful I have ever shot, but thats not sayin much since its my first compound. Im gonna use it mostly for pigs, deer and fishing.
One more question... I know from past experiences with long bows and recurves that you have to twist the bowstring for a uniform string. Does the same apply to compounds? I used to twist my recurve 1.2 times per inch of string.
It takes 43 muscles to frown, 17 to smile, and 3 for proper trigger squeeze.
The latest caliber or gear is no substitute for experience and skill. Rifles and cartridges don't make hits -- shooters do.
