Bowtech new stuff for '08

Recommended Posts

Meat-Run

Hey archers of all nature. I was out at the 2008 Shot Show these past few days in Las Vegas and Bowtech had a booth present. Stopped in and looked around and said hi. If your a Bowtech owner and/or future owner you'll be even more impressed with there new magnet quiver and accesories for there bows. Pretty need ideas and very ahead in there engineering from what I have seen. Also looked at there Diamond and Marque(sp) bows that were set up really nice to hold and look at. You'll have to check them out there new stuff when it gets to the stores this summer.

Also there was some pretty cool Law Enforcement gear and guns that would even make a terrorist drool.

I just shot an '08 Commander today. Wow! It's awesome! I have an '07 Commander that I love, but the '08 is a slight, but noticable improvement. They have the new paint- InVelvet, which is really cool. It's sort of like there's an extremely thin layer of felt over the bow, with a hint of "rubberiness" to it. Also, my brother's arrows were going 301 out of my '07 model, but were movin' at 315 out of the '08 bow (same poundage, draw length, etc.). The slightly more aggressive cams are definitely faster.

Anyway... yes, the '08 Bowtechs look AWESOME!

My hunting buddy has a Liberty and Tomkat. He is gonna be very jealous if I come home with a new Guardian! I haven't made up my mind yet, but they are very sweet.

I got to shoot a guardian last night.. granted it was right handed... but, I did not like the draw cycle at all, Once you shoot the bow I like it.. very little hand shock, I liked the grip, and it was very quiet... but I cant find myself liking the draw anytime soon..

DD,

What didn't you like about the draw cycle? I have a Commander, which is really just a longer Guardian, and the draw cycle is A-OK by me. Also, could the fact that you were drawing it off-handed be part of the trouble?

there is a major wall right before it lets off. I understand that this is just that second cam turning over, but to it is a bear to get through at 70#'s. I bought the marquis a couple days ago which is still really fast but 10 times as smooth. I would have bought the gardian if it was smoother on the draw and that huge wall wasnt there.

      OK, I may not be the most nimble guy in the outdoor world but for the life of me i can't apply those little yellow plastic bobber stops I bought at the Sports Show this past weekend. I ruined a dozen of them just practicing. Anybody else have the same problem? I know you have to be gently and not crush the little buggers. What am I doing wrong?

      As you know I have the 6 inch K Drill after loosing 3 of the biggest pike iv'e seen this weekend not being able to get them up the hole. I need a bigger auger for pike. I have a 7 inch mora hand auger and ordered a plate. Will this work OK or should I get the 8 inch K-drill the width is 7 1/2 inches. I'm willing to spend the $230 for the 8 inch if recommended. My wrists just can't take the 8 inch K drill or Mora drill only was able to use someone else's for a short bit. Worried the Mora will ruin the drill long term. Thanks

      I've always just used electrical tape.  It stretches and forms to the reel foot and rod handle.  Usually stays secure and sheds water.  I don't switch teelsnoften so taking the tape off is not a big issue for me.

      Agreed a buddy of mine uses the little green bands from bait shops for minnow bags very stiff but hold reels on very secure. Personally I don’t like rods that have to have reels taped on just because I like trying new reels with rods and I’m always switching things around.

      You can get around anywhere on Ottertail. I have been out there the past couple weekends and we currently have 20"+ of ice. It is a little rough and some deeper snow drifts but you shouldn't have a problem. A lot of houses and traffic on the lake.

      Ditto this. ^^^^.  Plus they eventually crack and break.

      Mike, the clam bar is going to be your best bet. But I run the troo shine strip lights in my one man flip. There great super bright and have sticky tape on them to connect to a pole. The clam light bar is about same in price maybe a bit more but extremely bright and can be mounted in your poles. I also have the clam sled lights on mine to not as bright but helps light up the ice in front for fishing or the sled or both. Hope that helps 
    • MikeG3Boat
      I am looking for a LED Rope lights to hang in my clam ice house for fishing at night.  I know you can purchase a light bar from clam, but I am thinking there must be a cheaper way.  I am looking for suggestions.  Please provide the brand.  Thanks, Mike

      The white hockey tape, then black electric tape over.  The hockey tape by itself gets too wet for me. The black electric tape sheds water better than the hockey tape.  After a few yrs of use the black will leave a gunky residue on the rod if used by itself Have also tried the reel bands, not a big fan of them when fighting a big fish.
    • AlwaysFishing23
      Masking tape on rod handle then electrical tape reel to rod. Works good!
