Guidant? Are you talking about the gaurdian?

If so I can't wait until our demo comes in. They make some of the best bows out there. IMO.

Get ready for a surprise. It's a strange looking beast. The limbs look wild when the bow is drawn. It supposedly shoot pretty nice. Our demo is supposed to be in any day so hopefully I'll do some "product testing" this week. smile.gif

I'm thinking about hanging my Switchback XT on the shelf with a for sale sign and using a Bowtech Tribute or Gaurdian this year. I really like the Tribute.

I've got two buddies who have Guardians and another who has a Commander (same bow as the Guardian but a little longer ATA). THESE ARE THE SWEETEST SHOOTING BOWS I'VE EVER SHOT, BAR NONE. I've always been a fan of longer ATA bows, so I'm pretty sure I'll be owning a Commander in the very near future.

I bought the Mathews Drenalin but the Bowtech Gaurdian made it a very tough choice. I'd defnately say that it is a very nice top end bow and worth the money, if you can afford it. Most bow companies these days make very nice shooting bows otherwise they wouldn't be in business.

Its smoother than your Hoyt? I have heard good things about the new Bowtechs...just have not been able to get my hands on one yet.

Cliffy,

I like my Hoyt- I think it's a pretty smooth bow. It's relatively fast and very quiet. That being said, I shot the new Hoyt Vectrix and I think it's a LOT smoother with very, very little hand shock. After I shot the Vectrix I couldn't imagine a smoother, quieter, less hand shock bow. Then I shot the Guardian... Unbelievable.

Scheels has a Guardian that you can go up and shoot. They also have the Vectrix and the Drenalin to compare against. IMO the Vectrix is a lot better shooting than the Drenalin (keep in mind I've liked some Mathews products, but never really fallen in love with them like many others have and like I did when I shot Hoyt and Bowtech), but the Guardian is nicer shooting than the Vectrix. I realize this is only my opinion and I'm not trying to state it as fact. Sportsman's Wharehouse has a Commander (same bow as the Guardian but longer) in, but I really don't think they have it tuned up very well. I've shot a Commander at the bowclub and it's unbelievable- maybe even a little nicer feeling than the Guardian (but I like long bows).

That's my take on the whole deal. You gotta go shoot the Guardian...

FYI- I was there over lunch today and they've got both the Commander and the Guardian in. If you prefer a longer bow, be sure to shoot the Commander as well as the Guardian. Also, the Guardian I've shot at the bowclub was tuned a little bit better than the one at Scheels and therefore shot nicer. The one at Scheels still shoots pretty darn sweet though.

One thing I also did was have a Scheels fella shoot a couple arrows through the Vectrix, Guardian, and Drenalin to listen to them (I can't tell how loud a bow is very well when I actually shoot it). The Guardian was considerably quieter than the other two.

Dang wives! Sometimes they just don't see the importance of time spent in hunting/fishing departments!!! I'm curious to hear what you think about it, so be sure to post your report once you've shot it.

I am running the Guardian right now and simply love it. I tagged on a Spot Hogg Hoggit 7 Pin, custom vapor trail strings and then the Vapor Trail Limb driver as a rest. Had the bow three weeks now and averaging 394/400 for leagues with it. Pretty dang happy. Got kinda lucky, originally I wasnt going to shoot the bow at all till after league was over, so its sat at Gander in the corner since january, not ever doing a thing to it. Finally I did the math on the league and realized there is no team that could end up beating my partner and I so I started to shoot, shes dialed in and ready to knock a couple turkeys heads off this spring.

      I’m wishing you luck my friend. It’s hard to get away and it can be very deflating when the weather doesn’t cooperate.

      Hit Green for a couple hours this afternoon, almost zero traffic and the sunnies were active. It’s nice to see this lake is back!

      still frozen in?

      Was out for a while on the Partridge River this afternoon, didn't have any minnows, managed one 13" crappie on Gulp waxes.  But, the old Strikemaster almost bottomed out-close to 30" of ice.

      I don't know what your Helix 7 requires in the manual, but a quick look would figure out if that 3amp is too small. Definitely wire your sonar to the motor battery using the correct gauge wire and fuse. If you connect it to another battery, it should be a stand-alone. Connecting to the trolling motor battery will generate interference.

      I've done cheeks quite a few times and they are always good. They take only a few seconds to carve out. I like to get the most out of the things I kill to eat, so I'm not afraid to pull them out of smaller ones. I'm glad to see that so many people picked up a new tip. That's the point of congregating on these forums. I wonder how many non-registered folks will read this and learn something new.

      I've been doing them for many years.  Like Cliff, a friend who was a guide on LOW brought some out prior to the main course-been doing it since.

      With the snow cover completely gone and lots of standing water, 60s in the forecast, with plenty of sunny days next week, and a good chance of rain mid-week; this may be my last weekend on the ice, South of Hwy 210 anyway . Fish have really been on the chew

      hey guys..i installed the helix 7. took it out the other day. it keeps  randomly shutting down, with the motor off it will stay on no problem. Heres where i think i f'd up. i used the same 3 amp fuse harness from the old sonar that came with the boat, the old hb depth only kind. its wired right to the ignition wire. i used the correct gauge wire where i needed it. im guessing its not getting enough juice? also if i wired it direct to a separate battery, how do i go about hooking up and on board charger? or would i be ok just wiring direct to the battery that runs the motor? thanks for any advice. those musky lures look so bad ass! nice work !!
