Where are you located? Are you looking for a specific brand?

Atlantic Archery Center near Fredericton
TECC Archery in Sussex
Northeast Camo in Salisbury
Spencers Archery near Coalbranch on the 126

These shops have knowledgeable staff, there's a few other shops around but my mother taught me that if you don't have something nice to say, then say nothing, sadly I forget it by times.

Many many good bows out there now. Join Archery talk, but beware for everyone talking up a particular brand/model, 10 more are talking trash about it.

Might be able to get some good deals on 2009 or 2010 leftover models which offers the advantage of getting real opinions on specific models.

Beware, some brands warranty only apply to the original owner, Mathews are like that.

Some brands require a cam change to change drawlength, others require a high-end bow press to release the limb tension(parallel and beyond limbs), again, Mathews are like that.

Try them out before to decide if you can.

I bought a new Mathews DR2 this spring, a major upgrade from my '92 PSE Thunderflite. Absolutely love it but I don't think I'll wait 118 years to upgrade again, can't even use that old bugger as a backup just too different after shooting almost every day from May til October with the Mathews.

Buddy of mine showed up at archery practice in Sussex last night with a new APA, think it is the King Cobra, 5" brace height, 70 Lbs(and shooting it at max), man. that was blazingly fast. They have some neat features, claw on the upper portion of the riser to hook it on a peg, built in broadhead wrench and sharpener. Pins clipped to the riser that when inserted through the cams rest against the limbs and allow the string to be changed in the field when the limb bolts are backed out a bit.

Holy *&^%, up to 362 fps, 101 KE

I'm looking to the Axe 6 myself and was into AC last week to check them out. They did have good prices and the guy said he would set up as many bows as I want to shoot to try them out. I'll be going in after xmas when I have some time so spend shooting a few. I can't remember the prices on their accesories but I've been checking online to get a feel for what I want to put on it.

I am also in the Saint John area... I deal with Mark in Sussex TECC Archery. His prices are fair, and he knows his stuff. He will also help you get your bow set up properly. The nice thing about buying local, is you get immediate service for issues, instead of having to send it away again.

The vendetta is going to be abit more forgiving because of the longer brace length and axle to axle length. They also have slightly different cams. Another option is the axe 7 which gives you a bit longer brace length but the same axle to axle as the axe 6. I plan on shooting all 3 before deciding if they have them in the shop.

Undertaker and NBduckhunter, what weight bow did you guys get and what do you plan on shooting it at?
