    Default No Clue!!!

    I had to pass this along, this stuff never ceases to amaze me! I was at my local bow shop yesterday the owner and the guys that work there are really good friends of mine and over the years I help out from time to time when they are busy or short handed. Anyway, yesterday turned into one of those days. Shortley after lunch a guy cam in with his girlfriend he wanted to pick up his bow that had been droped off a few weeks ago for some cam /cable repair. I ask him what brand the bow was and he couldnt tell me!! I ask him if it was a split limb bow......camo anything that could help me locate it, and he came up blank. As luck would have it he did know his name and I found his bow in back with a ticket hanging on it with his name. Just before I found it he told me that he was pretty sure it was a Hoyt.............turned out to be a Bowtech. Just before I left another guy and his wife came in...........same thing, he couldnt tell me the brand of his bow! Some times I think people shoot archery or own archery equipment just because its the "in" thing to do at this time. Maybe thier friends do it and they get into it just to fit in..............I have no idea the answer to this, it just amazes me when I encounter this.

    x2 that is just the thing. They think it is the thing to do. But they are clueless. Scary too! how many more things do they do the same thing and are clueless.

    Encountered this in 2 parts yesterday. Have a post on it in the Rytera section. Dude asked me what bow I had. Told him an Alien X by Rytera - "Never heard of it" Asked what he had, "Oh I got a Hoyt ... it's the uh ... Alpha Max? or Turbo ...? Uh I forget" He then asked me what release I was shooting because I shoot a TruFire 3D Hunter and he was like "Oh yeah I got one of these ... ya know it folds back" - I knew just by looking at it that it was a TruFire trigger. Makes me crazy when people don't even know what they own, they just "have" it.

    Then he was with another guy who pulls out a fully loaded, decked out to the max PSE Evo. Micro Adjust sight and all. I seriously got the impression he had never shot a bow before. They were trying to get him sighted in from 10 yards, shot straight over the target into the backer bail - no prob. They then adjust the sight in the opposite direction and at that point I was like "see ya later guys" ... I had to leave anyway.
