Archery innovations
« on: October 19, 2012, 09:32:07 AM »
  There have been so many wonderful new products produced for bowhunters in recent years.  I was wondering what your favorite new accessory is.  A new broadhead?  A new bow?   Fletchings?  Silencers?  Sights?  Rests?   Arrows?  You get the picture.
  My favorite is the Peep Eliminator!   I've never used a peep sight, but having that second reference point that brings you to the exact same anchor point every time, helps in preventing bow torque, and when you can't keep that perfect "T" form, like when shooting under or around something, it's a Godsend.   What's your favorite new "gadget" for archery?

Not a new product, but is new to me this year is a Dream Season scent blocker boots, pants, and coat.

I never bought any scent blocker clothing because I always thought it was a waste of money.

I have had deer straight down wind of me almost every day out this year while wearing the scent blocker and I have yet had a deer know I was even around. Or at least they kept feeding as normal and showed no sign of caring about me.

I really love it and very happy with it.

For me, it is the Keller Pendulum Sight. I had problems judging distances when climbing, the pendulum got me on target.

I like the innovation of the IQ sight system, but the price range is the killer for me. I also used the Keller Pendulum and really liked it. Problem I had was the one I used developed a rattle that was quite noticable. So I stopped using it. Your right, it does take a lot of guess work out of the ranging when it is properly zeroed and adjusted.

Haven't bought anything new as of late but the last thing I got were 3 dozen Victory Arrow Shafts. Best purchase I have ever made. Doug my son who shot the small doe last week said that when he recovered his arrow it had hit a rock and the trocar tip was bent some but the shaft had now ill sign of damage.

Oh nice! Not too badly priced on their site. May have to look into one. Haven't seen them much locally. Sounds like everyone who has one loves it.

I switched to the Gateway Feather Rayzr feathers. I was tired of having issures with Blazer vanes falling off my arrows. The Rayzr's are very similar in size and shape as the Blazers but are quieter, faster, and more forgiving than vanes.

"What's your favorite new "gadget" for archery?"

NONE! That's the beauty of shooting a recurve and the reason why I went back to them after 23 years of buying new gadgets for my compound!   ;D
