I like the most the last two ones- black and green and black and red, but i'm not objective because my favourite colour is black :D

Black and blue for me! What's your preference?

Black and red! :) Matches the red line on the limbs.

At the moment i prefer black-red or black-green. :D

But before i can do anything i will have to wait for the bow to arrive. Which may take some months. :)

So, is this the first bow with the 2 sets of broken limbs, or the second one which you've ordered lately? You and Barry have waited so long that i've forgotten what you've ordered. Hope you'll get your bow before the 2011 models appear.

The first bow with 2 broken limbs is here and is shooting fine. As i do not want to disassemble it now i am waiting for the second ShadowCat ordered in november last year. ;)

Eight-nine months sounds a reasonable term to me, like a newborn baby ;)

Montalaar

Yepp. And because of this i want only the best for my little 'baby'. :D

alex

:D Hope you won't receive a one-year-old baby ..... The more i watch the pictures the more i like the black-red and the black-green. Luckily you'll have twins and can powdercoat them differently ;)

Time will tell. Before letting them powdercoat i will find someone who can and much more important: Get the needed money. :D

:cool: This would be the tricky part. By the way i don't know the bulgarian term for "powdercoat" - not that i need it, but i must find it out just in case... I wonder who does this job, may be somebody making car tunning? What do you think?

Montalaar
07-11-2010, 12:20 PM
Cartuning or bike tuning. At least in germany. There are also people doing powdercotaing for industrial machines here. But they are unaffordable.

btw..

I do not think it will help you at all:
en - ger

powdercoating - Pulverbeschichtung
anodizing - Eloxieren

Actually it may help, thanks! Here we use many of the German tech terms - a legacy from the first half of 20th century when our countries were connected ... I doubt it that this includes "powdercoating", but i can always try Wikipedia :)

I like the swartz/blau.

Montalaar

black/blue is absolutely working for me. No need to call them with their german names. ;)

Black with Fl.Orange innards might work with me. Then Black and Fl. Orange strings. Other than that I like the Black and red innards.

Sorry about the German, had one year in high school (30 years ago). I'm thinking about refinishing my Shadowcat this fall during hunting season, since I'll be hunting with a Nemesis. How does Ferrari red with black zebra stripes or black barbed wire.

Not intending to hijack your thread.

Sounds good, especially if you have a Ferrari :D Just don't know where you can put a bow in this car ;)

Montalaar
07-14-2010, 04:22 AM
well... there are two seats... ;)

alex
07-14-2010, 07:11 AM
Ah, Simon, when you have a Ferrari the second seat is always occupied by girls with legs starting from the neck, or so i've heard :D

Montalaar
07-14-2010, 01:32 PM
Girls? Uhm.. I have bows. :) And no need for a Ferrari, my feet serve me great.

Got a mail that my second ShadowCat is on the way. FINALLY!! :)
Now i hope it will get here before i fly to sweden for a week. If not the whole bow will be shipped back. x.X

Congratulations! And don't worry - if you can't receive the bow i'll make you a favour and will come to take it ;) By the way, nobody needs a Ferrari :D I may look like an alien to our American friends, but i don't have a car - looking at the pro and cons i think i can live without it, at least for now... Not so with the bows!

Same here. Sometimes i rent a car if there is something big to to move around but in most cases i rely on bus and railroad. :D

Oh, you will have no use for a ShadowCat in the possible draw length.. :P

:D It's a pity.... Wait a second, with the CAT 2.0 doesn't it go to 32"? So the shortest must be 25" or am i wrong?

Montalaar
07-15-2010, 08:47 AM
The shortest with CAT2 is something around 29" or so. ;)

Spiker
07-15-2010, 08:55 AM
Should go shorter with the standard mods instead of the long draw ones.

-- no wait, could be yer right!!!

Montalaar
07-15-2010, 09:01 AM
With LD-Mods the CAT2-Cam will even go to 33" in drawlength. :)

That's strange, i don't know the CAT's very good but don't they have 7 holes for the different DLs? Or may be some are useless with this bow? Nevermind, it's not so important, if i ever have a ShadowCat it'll be with the standard cams :)

Montalaar
07-15-2010, 09:55 AM
Right.

1 Hole equals 0.5"

So you get:
7 - 32"
6 - 31.5"
5 - 31"
4 - 30.5"
3 - 30"
2 - 29.5"
1 - 29"

alex
07-15-2010, 10:53 AM
Oh, i tought each equals an inch. Thanks, Simon :)
