    Default New Nemisis

    My 2012 Nemisis arrived yesterday. Red riser, black carbon limbs (Barnesdale) , and those gaudy fl. green/black strings. They gotta go. Where ya at Hutch?

    I'm really having trouble choosing string colors. Anybody on here seen a red riser? They aren't what I'd call red. More like blood red. Very close to BCY Mountain Berry. I don't know whether to go with Mt. Berry and maybe Fl. Green speckled or something that contrasts with the bow.

    The present strings won't go to waste as the ones on my 2011 Nemisis are starting to show a little wear and tear. Afterall, it's probably only got 8,000 shots on it right now. I hate the idea of having to change the strings and start tuning all over again even though I measure everything. Maybe I'll just save these new ones till after the new bow is set up and shooting to my satisfaction.

    Don't expect pics too soon. Nothing until this thing is set up. One fo the first things needing down is the magical sand paper machining of the cam grooves. Sometyhing I neglected to do with the 2011 model. Also have to contact Joel and order the carbon STS as it came through with the older model.

    Congrats bfischer, I would love to get a Nemisis. I was looking at one at my LGS, it was last years still new for 499.00. Don't know if that's a good price or not, but it looked nice. Enjoy your new bow.

    Nice Barry. Can't wait to see it when you get it put together. As for colors, I'm with you on the green not really going with the red riser. Maybe try the black cherry and flame? or maybe a dark red like black cherry or mountain berry and white or silver/black for contrast...

    One thing to remember Barry. You can always do a Solid color with a pinstripe down the center of it. Like Mt berry and a flo green pinstripe or black as the pinstripe. If you need samples let me know.

    Mybe I'm trying too hard to match the riser. How about red and mt. berry? Clear halo ends and black center serving. My rest is a code red and the Simms stabilizer has red accents. Maybe I'll cover both bases with red and mt. berry.

    Thanks Speedy. I intended to wait on strings from Hutch and I haven't ordered them yet. I couldn't wait. Just spent the last two hours out at the club installing accessories and tweaking cables and string to get it to feel the way I like. It's not quite right yet, not the same as my other one, but I have all day tomorrow. Maybe I'll throw the Hogg-It on it and sight in a pin or two.

    I'll say one thing about it. That crimson red is not really a bright red. It's more like a metallic blood red. Really cool, and not a flaw in it. Just like the Scepter V I have here it's a beautiful paint job.

    There is one thing about it. It's just like my other Nemisis in that the weigt drops only about 1.8# per turn. I ordered a 50#er and it came through with Barnesdale 175 limbs that peaked at 54.12#. I backed it off 5 turns, took 3 twists out of each cable and added 6 twists to the string and it still pulls 45.5#. Like I said, more tweaking to do.
