Bowtech new stuff for '08

12 posts in this topic

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.

      pretty neat that the train went over.

      Was out opening weekend walleye fishing. Caught walleyes in 10 -12 ft slow trolling minnows. Looked like the spawn was over and this coming weekend should be much better. Water was 55 degrees in the area I was in and didn't  get any other species.

      Good evening hooked up as a non resident you are allowed one walleye between the sizes mentioned per day no matter what license you posses. As others have stated, the smallness should be off their beds and the walleyes will be transitioning to the deep water reefs. Wind blown points or current are always good places to start.

      I'm not a big bass chaser, but last year I started tossing senkos rigged wacky around rock piles and docks and did pretty well on Smallies.  Green Pumpkin color seemed to work the best.    Stay away from white bouys, they mark hazards..... Unless you are creeping up on them with your trolling motor to pitch senkos on top of the rock pile.  I'll be on Trout Lake June 7-10 so if you want to text me when you get up to Vermilion I can give you a report on how it went for us.   Lots of resorts on Vermilion rent 25 HP fishing boats.     matt 612-868-1282

      Boat traffic isn't all that bad, there's a million places to escape it on that lake anyway. Bugs are usually pretty bad that time of year, and we've had a pretty wet spring so far also. But they're not an issue out on the water. You can launch at a different access each day, and it'll be like being on a completely different lake.

      Thats a great view

      This time of year inside weedlines with sand have been good historically.  Find some cabbage and you should be golden.   Those walleyes could show up here and there on cranks in that 10 foot range too.

      I do not fish bass very often but have had good luck using straight braided line for bass and walleye. Very few bugs out on the water! Shore bugs usually only out in the late evenings. Very few jet skis and water skiers on most of Vermilion most of the time. Weekend Holidays can see a lot of traffic. Some one else will surely answer your bass bait questions ! Tons of rusty crayfish in the East end that the bass love! Cliff

      Hey guys. My wife and I are coming up June 10th for a week of bass and pike fishing. Staying in Niles Bay area. Had a few more questions, hoping for some insight from some locals/regulars.  I was wondering ab ou how bad the bugs usually are in mid June, mosquitos,  biting flies and no see ums. Hoping when are are out in the boat fishing they will pretty much leave us alone.         I mentioned going to Vermilion on a thread on our local Ohio fishing forum. A few guys commented that it was a very busy lake with lots of jet ski and tubers. I was thinking if I wanted a more remote feel for a day maybe renting a boat and taking the portage to Trout Lake. I know our 40 hp is too big. I was also thinking of trying the river below the dam launching on 8 mile creek. Saw that on an episode of Ultimate Fishing Adventures. I was wondering if that area is limited to 25 hp motors. What would be the pros and cons of each spot?     I know V is tannic stained. We use pretty much braid on all our poles. Do you braid users feel you need a flouro leader when  bass fishing. Here in Ohio our water is rarely clear enough to worry about that.   One last thing what are the go to colors for tubes and senkos for bass?        Thanks for any help info you can give.                    Mr. Basskisser

      Cathedral     brown with black specks senko style has been really good.
