I'm still slaying with my 2007 Switchback LD but I have recently thought about getting something newer and moving the LD to a backup.

I tried to order that old school camo for my limbs, but they quit using it in 2021.

I shoot only traditional for years now. If I hadnít switched to that I donít think I would have bought another compound. My Z7 extreme was by far the best compound I ever had and would have kept it as long as it held together.

Iím rolling with an Elite Kure this year. I absolutely love the thing what little time Iíve actually had to spend with it. Waiting on some new threads from GAS that I ordered 2 months ago so I can start playing with it a little more in depth and decide on my hunting arrow for the year.

I killed a bunch of animals one season with my Z7E. Buddy offered me more than I paid for it and I sold it. Another mistake.

Have been shooting a switchback since 2005. Loved that bow. Until I fell on it and bent the riser. Had to buy a new bow last year. Now Iím shooting the Mathews VXR 28.

I am shooting a Matthews Vertix currently but I will shoot anything these days. Even the mid level bows are waaaaay better than what we were shooting in the late 80s and 90s..........it is all about the Indian!
My shooting training starts next week for Zambia.......looking forward to getting back in the groove!
