Default What bow is everyone shooting

Never have been in love with my Mathews vxr and started shooting my 2013 elite answer this summer. That lead me to go to the bow shop Monday and shoot the elite envision. Now I have one on order and should be here when I get back from ag teacher conference next Friday. Ordered black lefty 60lb with limbdriver pro vx rest and using a black gold 3 pin sight

Recently picked up an Obsession Sniper SS. I just got it set up and need to finish tuning it. Love the way it shoots. Much faster than the SBXT that I've shot for years.

Elite Envision, 60-70#. Didn't think I'd be able to pull over 60 due to shoulder issues, but this bow proved me wrong. First time to buy a new bow since my PSE Strato Flight in the late 80's!

I am a compound finger shooter, and they don't make those any more except for Archery Republic's 44 inch axle Alliance target bow. I shoot my 2012 Hoyt Vantage LTD, and for a back up, another Vantage LTD I bought off Ebay, with 50-60 pound new limbs Hoyt made for me this year.
