    There are currently two Scepter V treads, as a target bow, and both guys are very pleased with their choices.

    Cool I have the Scepter V

    I have had the scepter V for a week now. I have an HHA rolling sight for target shooting. I have found only one problem with the scepter and that is balance.
    The bow is so balanced around the shooting shelf the sights make it top heavy. I have ordered a heavy stabilizer to counter act the effect. I also ordered two extra weights to
    help counter act the leveling caused by the sight.

    I have started shooting vegas targets. Shooting 30s with this bow is easy, I hope to up my Xs went the stabilizer gets here. until then
    im pissing all the mathews and hoyt shooters off beating them in 5 spot. My brother has ordered the scepter in skullz camo hopefully he can give me a challenge.

    good to know thank you. But my hopes for the target bow has been smashed. My truck was broke in to yesterday and they got all my tools. My nice boss will not replace my or even his tools for me to work. So now the money for the bow is going to tools.

    Man, I hate to hear stuff like this. Good hard earned money going to pot. Call your insurance agent, auto and homeowners. See what they'll do. All might not be lost with a target bow, just delayed. Who knows? Maybe you'll be able to pick up a good used or leftover 2012 next year.

    I turn in to my homeowners they dont cover it becouse it was not in my garrag. I will be looking for a used target bow. But I did get good news from Joel my bengal is on its way back to me should have saterday. I placed a nightvision cam on my driveway. Good thing about WV you can carry. I called my boss again about this He will not even replace the drills. So I must get them so I can my his ass money.I would leave but jobs are to hard to find and he knows it.
