bow question

Recommended Posts

I'm just getting into the archery thing and I was hoping to get some opinions on these bows. Reflex, Bowtech, and Bear. I'm getting a free bow and I have to choose one of these models. Any helpful info would be greatly appreciated. Any smart remarks would be understandable. smile.gif

Ive heard great things about bowtech, I know they are super fast. But once again, its all a matter of what you like, I think everyone on this forum would agree that you should shoot them until you feel that you like one more. Thats what I did when I bought mine. Good Luck.

Koonie:

I would suggest shooting them all and go with the one you like best...no matter what anyone on this forum tells ya....you are going to be able to tell which one works best for ya. With that being said, I have never shot a Reflex or Bear BUT I have had the chance to shoot a few Bowtechs. They are smooth and SMOKING fast. I really like them...think they are worth a look.

Good luck in your search.

All the above stated bows are very good bows. I would suggest you go into the proshop and shoot them and see what feels best for you. That is why there are so many different bows... each person thinks one feels better to them than the other, and everybody is right!

I would put them in order like this.. Bowtech, Reflex, Bear... in that order. But again.. shoot them, and take notes right after you shoot them. So that you can look at your notes to see what you liked and didn't like about each bow. Too many people try and do it with just memory.

Ditto. I'd agree with all said above. I've been happy with my bowtechs.

Shoot them all is the best idea. It's best to go with what fits you best since pretty much all the stuff now days is so good. Isn't reflex a chuck adams endorsed hoyt? Sure can't beat the price you got!

Bowtech is a very good brand. My buddy has 2 and I'm always scheeming to shoot one of his bows when we go shooting. He has an 04 LIberty and an 05 Tomkat. The Tomkat is better for beginners.

Reflex is kinda like the generic line of Hoyt. Bowtech has DIamond bows, HOyt has Reflex. They are also very nice bows. I've never shot one but I would consider them when I look into a new bow.

Bear, the only thing I know about Bear is that they are no longer "Fred Bear" bows. They were bought out by a different company and they kept the name because of its heritage and recognition. IMO I've heard their quality isn't what it used to be.

Koonie, like they said try shooting them all. I would look for the one that has minimal bow shock, draws smoothest, and most quiet. The speed of an arrow doesn't impress me much.... Quietness, deers won't know what's coming if they can't hear it.

      Odd, because on another thread subject you said this? 😏   What Kind Of Bird Is This??? Clavilux replied to Dan85's topic in MN Pheasant Hunting-Grouse-Dove-Partridge Tough to figure out what exactly it is. Looking forward to see the opinions of others.

      I am not so familiar with looking forward to see the opinions of others.

      Does scented make a difference? How about some different ones for walleyes?

      @popriveter  Thanks man,  Glad I could get you pumped for the season. It was exciting to get out that early this year. Really sucks this warm weather came in and going set us back though. We were on track for a really nice ice season too. I was out in the Metro on 4-5" for few days last week before it got warm. Ice is still there just looks nasty now. Really bummed. You may have to drive north for some decent ice. Either way fingers crossed for cold snap soon. Be safe and goodluck this season!

      @Bucketcastle lol...Thanks Man. There was a lot of ice checking before this video was made too. Pretty much 4-5" everywhere I drilled.

      Some plastics will last thru many crappies. Some maybe one. 😁 Slug bugs. Mayflies. Wishbones. Wedgees

      Please show some pics of good crappie plastics. Good thing is one scoop of minnows will stay alive forever in the winter.

      Looks to be super unpredictable still, I heard a few brave souls walking out of Warrod but Arnesens just posted online that they had ice but now gone with the wind. I would imagine it's a few weeks out as it's a huge body of water
