went from a single pin to a multi pin just to try it. i like it better. using slick tricks n Harvest time arrows instead of the GT 5575 and whatever heads i can get my hands on. im getting way more particular w my setup than i have in years past. decided to stick with Viper sights(looking for a couple more),slick tricks,Trophy Taker rests,and HTA arrows and changed from Truball to Trufire releases.

Actually downgraded my BH's, gone to cheaper heads for better economy and better confidence. With more expensive heads I was a little apprehensive on some shots, scared of loosing to much $$.

After the string failure this spring, I am sporting a new Hutch N Son string, a new draw mod, (found out I was 31", not 29"), there fore I have new arrows, Victory VForce, new WB, and hopefully next week my new sight will be here. My pendulum sight was rattling real bad, well, I think the axle finally broke, so I am waiting on the arrival of a Sword Apex Hunter 4 pin. Might need to try a tube less peep, but still up in the air.

Total cost $370 over a 120 days. All setup and tuning done by me.
That is the setup on the bottom of this image:
Smarten Up and Martin Up
My 2011 hunting season update is my rangefinder.
After looking over several of the new models models out now, decided I'm retiring my old Bushnell Yardage Pro Sport and ordered a Leupold RX-1000 TBR DNA.

More new stuff arrived this morning. More HT-2 harvester arrow shafts. Plus my Magnus Stinger 100 grains and some Boots arrived also. I haven't decided whether I stay with my Fobs or go with 3 inch fusions. I'll be doing some Bh testing and finding out soon. My Muley hunt starts Sept 1.

Not completely happy with the fobs?

Not completely happy with the fobs?
They don't allow Fobs in most Sanctioned tourney's besides Spots. That's the only reason I have been fletching vanes. After shooting about 2 dozen arrows, half fobs and half fusions with 100 grain Magnus Stingers I'll be happily sticking with Fobs for hunting. :cool: Fusions stayed toe to toe out to thirty yards then the fusion groups were all over the place. Out to 70 yards with Fobs. :cool:
