What's the ATA of the bow and draw length you intend to shoot?

bfisher... i CANNOT believe you said what you just said...the ata of the SHADOWCAT, a bow that every dedicated Martin shooter has lusted after and you do not recall the ata on that flagship bow???? :eek:

well, it is 41.5 inches axle to axle and i'm shooting 28 inches.

can you hep me out?

Carlos, how am I supposed to know you were referring to the ShadowCat, you buttwad? LOL By the way, Buttwad is my wife's nickname for me.

I'm going to say a 45 degree peep for sure. You're not that much longer than me at 27" draw and I got along just fine with a 45 degree peep on a 32" FireCat. But then you should know that all you have to do is walk into a decent shop and try them both.

I'm not sure how all the rest of us knew he was talking about a Shadowcat, I guess we are clairvoyant? :o:p:rolleyes:;)

Just because he has talked about shooting the ShadowCat in prior posts everybody assumes that is what he is talking about. Call me dense or whatever, but I didn't assume such. My bad? Maybe, but you guys can bust on me all you want. I dish some out once in a while so I also deserve some coming my way. I can handle it. I know you guys are just having fun. LOL.

alright, bfisher, i'll give you a pass. but just because you've been such a pleasant fellow in the past. now, what i did was dig into the lanbaster catalog and sure enough, there it is in black and white. for 40 inch ata or longer, go with the 37 degree.

lanbaster hath spoken, let none stand against them.

(thanks for tryin' to help...but name calling? really now.)

Buttwad, I was hard a$$ing you, but it wasn't spiteful, just goosing you a little. Okay, I'm going to make an honest attempt to never use your wife's pet name for you again.


BTW, I did not add anything, if you read Carlos' original post he asks which peep for his SHADOWCAT. Go back and look. So yes, that is why I was hard a$$ing you a little. I catch enough flack around here that I need to dish a little out from time to time. Usually it is me and Hutch giggin' each other. :cool:

OK guys, I really screwed this one up (can't read????) and deserve what I get. My apologies to both of you. I hope you both had some fun.

Carlos, I still say you want the 45 degree peep. The 37 degree is for shorter bows, longer draw length where the string angle is more acute. Check the FAQ section on Specialty Archery's website. Scroll way down. You don't need the 37 degree peep till you go over 30" draw with your bow.

I've tried using a 37 degree peep at 27" draw on a 32" bow and it didn't work. Too sharp an angle.
