After about 25 years away from archery, my wife and I decided to start again. I bought a PSE Triton because of low price. It was a new 05. I had it about three weeks when I picked up a Bengal at the local Martin dealer. I was amazed how much smoother it was than the PSE even though the Martin was 58lb instead of the 53 for the PSE. I made a deal at the shop and went home with the Bengal.
That was last Thursday. I spent some time at the shop that day getting sighted in for twenty yards. The weather was lousey Friday. Saturday I got sighted for thirty and went to a local match. It was a 15 target 3D held inside. I shot 117 out of a possible 150. this was my first ever 3D match.

This morning I shot my first ever deer with the Bengal. It was a big doe.

I look forward to saving enough to get a Mystic next.
