Nothing wrong with that, that's $37.50 more than you had when you got there. Plus, more importantly, you got the bragging rights!!! O0

Congrats Travo!!!  I thought you were a Martin man?

naw, sold the razor x. i like the alpine much better. nothing wrong with the old martin, just a little outdated and worn. had to replace the limbs once already, the string twice.

i doubt that, tech. dont think id wanna shoot against bighoytman. i think ol bloodtrail would be a tough match, too. im good up here, but there aint that many people up here.

well great job on winning the shoot.Put the money towards something you want or need for the bow.Maybe a nice wrist strap of your favorite colors kinda personalize the new bow, just a thought.Im glad you like the new bow,I shot the silverado  awhile back it was a nice bow,pretty quick and quite.

287/300, 24 X's!!!

How does that translate to pie plates ? :twisted:

The center part of the  small dessert plates.Then draw your circles for points on that.lol

the x's are about the size of a golf ball, the bull is about the size of a softball, anything outside of that, you drop points.
