i did'nt mean it that way i'm sorry if you took offence. i had read an artacle in feild and stream awhile back about how women are takeing up hunting and i for one think it's great. the more people we can get doing it the better. as far as the bow gose it is a used one i would get it check out by an expert.

I really wish that I could be of help. My bow is a PSE Fire Flite Express, about 10-12 years old. It's an antique by today's standards. I use 125 gr. Thunderheads and they do a good job...as I recall. I haven't shot it in way too long.

I have friends who are really up-to-date on the latest and greatest bows and I hear a lot about them. I have been impressed by the "Rage" expandable broadheads.

Good luck in your search. I'm sure there are folks on here who can be of help.

Thanks,
Clark

Hey there GearJammer. I would like to help you with your question BUT I would suggest before I answer "if this is a good one"..... you should first tell us or show a picture of the bow you are talking about.

I'm just saying ; )

OK guys...I really appreciate all the feedback on helping me pick out a new bow. Now all I have to do is pick out a quiver and I'm set to go! So is this a good quiver? Thanx. [:D]

that looks like an OK quiver from this view,but most people use one that is attached to the bow like a QUIKIE QUIVER

Sorry, GearJammer, I can't help you out much with your bow problems.  Unfortunately, I have not kept abreast of the latest developments in archery tackle.  Judging from the pictures you posted though, I think I need to start feeling around to see if I can help you out.
