    On that subject, I need to discuss an option with you that I think you'll really appreciate.
    I also do R&D on new rests.....

    The Mathews bows are definitely nice but out of my price range for now! At 5'3" and 110 the razor edge is perfect for me as well. And at 40 pounds to draw back I'm pretty confident I'll have no problem taking a deer down. Can't wait for bow season. And azwantapaint see everyone with the negative feedback really make me want to switch to a drop away rest.. I'll have to do some more research because I would like to be confident in all my equipment!

    Friends don't let friends shoot Mathews bows.
    With all the great bows on the market, many that are way more comfortable to shoot than a Mathews, and for less money, you can easily do better.
    Legally in most states 35 pounds is enough to hunt with. Check your state regulations.
    I have my pins set from 20 to 80 yards (7 pin sight), and an pulling 72 pounds.
    It matters more that you can place an arrow well than how much you can pull.
    It just means that you need to select broadheads that will work with you're set up.
    A well placed shot from a35 pound bow is still better than a Texas heart shot from a70# bow.
    How well your now is tuned also plays into the equation in a big way.
    A well tuned bow is more fun to shoot, more accurate, and less prone to wear, since everything in working optimally.
    Get the book I recommended, and you'll be able to tune your own bow perfectly for your style and form.
    Then, you'll shoot more, and get better and better and better!
    For what its worth, my girlfriend shoots aPSE bow madness xs, dialed down to40#.
    Great bow, very smooth, and extremely accurate for her.
    My next bow will be aPSE freak...

    Okay gang, that little secret i've had to hold in is not a secret anymore.
    Well, sort of.
    On Monday, we will be formally announcing the launch of a new arrow rest, named the Hawkeye.
    I just got the parts in for assembly, and the official sales launch date is August 1st.
    Its a budget limb driver that should retail in the $50 range, that has many of the features of our high end rests, but at a budget price.
    There isn't anything on the market that can touch this thing on price, accuracy, or features, and I expect it will be a barnstormer!
    I still have a couple tweaks to make on it prior to full production, but come launch day, it will be locked, cocked, and ready to rock!
