The SlayeR walked in last night, No strutted in. I'll. send better photos as soon as I get a drop on it. I did shoot with a whisker brisket and yep fast. I'm like a kid in a candy store or and old guy at the gun shop. Thanks Jim

The draw is just a little long, will replace the D-Loop, shorter and see. I'v only put a few arrows down range and feels good. Have to work the next two weekndes befor I get a chance to put her to the test and get it zero-in. Will get her fine tuned befor a 3D shoot in April here in Flagstaff. I'm sure I will have folk come up and ask what's that.....

My friend elkslayer was interested in that bow but right after I mentioned it to him you committed to buy it. He hadn't even read my post to him yet. He literally missed it by minutes. It will be interesting for you, but you might notice something really neat. Up to 30 yards, the time of flight for your arrows vs. the "hotrod bows" of today seem very similar. But beyond 30 yards, for some reason, the Slayr's arrows are faster, and my 40, 50, and 60 yard pins have less gap. The only thing I can attribute it to is that the arrow, since less "upset" at launch, recovers quicker and therefore becomes much more aerodynamic sooner. Although cable guide bows can shoot well, why handicap yourself? Wish I had a high speed camera to prove it.

One more thing, we (my family) found that shooting the bow without the grips on has less potential for torque errors from slight holding errors at arrow launch. They look really cool under the grip without the grips on too.

Must have smaller hands than I do, wear an XL glove, Elkslayer's paws are even bigger. Even elkslayer9x8 wear an XL glove, but then, we all need C nitrous cams. I'm short, 5'10", but could still reach an 8 foot ceiling when I was drywalling. Yeah, I can almost reach my knees while standing, ape armed. Es is 6'4", and 9x8, the 16 yo, is 6'1"and still growing! :)

Actually the original post (#1) when Pete said it (2005 Cranberry Slayr) strutted in.....Is wrong. When Slayrs arrive...other bows bow down before it. Respect is immediately given and surrendered. You better hide your women, they are not safe, if they know what is best for them. Luckily dogs cower away or they might get a backside boot. He is a take no prisoners type of guy. Clint Eastwood would back away to leave out the back door. Even Chuck Norris knows what would be best for his health...run! Only select owners can corral the beast...but only because he wants you too and let's you. It is mutually beneficial so that's why Mr. (not MRS!) Slayr allows one to release a few arrows downrange. I feel for what is in the crosshairs! As owners, much responsibility has the potential for great rewards.

Yep! Has arrived. Virgins to the right non-virgins to the left, boz lookout the king is here. I have her put together and sighted out from 30 to 90 Yards. Shooting about 277 with a 400g arrow. Off this weekend and will shoot more to get a better feel for her.

I see that you were able to get sighted in out to 90 yds, is your HHA bottomed out, or do you still have more slide left? :)

Look at that beautiful Slayr. Sitting on the deck patrolling. Keeping owner and family safe. And even anything on the snow covered peak in background is not safe. Very beautiful picture, Pete.

9093ES I put the HHA on my centroid as I couldn't wait. Put a trophy taker on the SlayR at this time. Plan is to get anther HHA for the SlayeR as the HHA is a much smother sight than the TT. The TT is from top to bottom 30-90. The SlayeR seams to shoot the 30 yard pin from 19-30 yards without adjustment. I'm sure even more with a lighter arrow. It's like a kid in high school learning to un snap a bra. I just need some more time on the range with the King. I did hit 307 with a lighter arrow, 27" at 7.4g. Will figure out total weight tommarrow and draw weight once I get time off work. Thx MXs , as you can see not everything in the great state of AZ is desert. The peaks are at 13,000 feet. We're at 7000 feet.

The Sword Centurian is very similar to the HHAs, has more adjustment ( 3rd axis ) After HHA has lead slider sight sales for the last 7-8 years, it seems that everybody has one now, but its hard to beat HHAs, kinda like Martin, their CS is top notch, if you ever need it. Right now I do, have to send in one of mine, lost the bubble somehow.

I just had to review this thread, because mine is in the mail!! MX, your like the Johnny Appleseed of Slayers. Mine is going to be "The Man in Black", that everyone fears. He comes into town, and men hide, and women come out and greet him. They cannot wait to meet the Man in Black with the big 13 inch, uh, uh, limbs. Thats what I mean, 13 in limbs!

Yes my well hung also. it's amazing how accurate even out to 80.

Longer isn't always better. I have 14" limbs on my Slayers, a higher brace height, therefore theoratically less time on the string, less push. But I draw them back near the limit of the cam to make up for that! :)
