Man I’m not going to lie to you I really don’t know. Most of the reds are deluxe models and electric. I’ve run electric in my old bow shop. But just doing things at home now and just wanted simple. Love the press, but did like the holding bow in both hands and pushing foot pedal.

Final broadhead tuning and zero before go-time!

The Magnus are killing it as usual and the OzCuts are flying good too.

With that said I highly do NOT recommend buying from OzCut their business practices leave a lot to be desired. Let's just say I got these BHs free through a 3 months long paypal claim for nonshipment.

Nice rig. Are you running feathers in lieu of vanes? I'm going with feathers this year for the first time and was going to see how you liked them, if in fact those are feathers.

Was wondering same? I switched from fluff to plastic on my traditional set up because of noise and stabilization. What your secret with the bird wings

I dont have a trad rig, so I cannot speak on that.

On feathers, I've read they are the best thing to steer big broadheads, and with the lighter weight, it's a increase foc %.. i like the nostalgia of them. I'm going with a right helical 3" gateway barred feather.. thinking 2 white and cock feather to be hot pink.

4” feathers work better and are lighter that 3” babes but they suck if you get caught in the rain

Those are the Day Six vanes, some of the arrows decided to take a trip through the targets so they got a little wonky. I need to try to straighten them out

Decided to roll with a brand new ritual 30 that I put together this week. She shoots really great. I dropped to a 60 pound bow this year, and the VAP TKO 400’s match up really well. So far so good, just ready to put it to work.
