    Default Been bit by a Tiger, Bengal that is.

    60lb peak Bengal is heading my way Granson will start wearing this one out when he can pull 35lbs, after Grandfather breaks it in for him If I am correct I should be able to turn this down to 25lbs. Looks like I'll be listing a 2010 Diamond Iceman 50-60lb bow in the classifieds after the Bengal gets set up. Any tips on the Fury Cam will be welcomed.

    It deserves new accessories! I don't like putting old stuff on new equipment. Just last week, we had the same situatation, ES is making a custom gunstock for a customer, who sent an old cheapie recoil pad for it. So here we have the New Hotness wearing the old and busted.

    Congrats to grandson, he's getting an excellent bow. I'm sure you'll do a great job of breaking it in.

    Bengal has arrived! That was quick. OPS did it again, this is the third package in a month that came damaged, really it says Fragile right on the box. Whats wrong with oops any more, I inspected the bow and there dosn't appear to have any damage. So now the process begins to turn it into a functional hunting tool. Have a new Ripcord rest coming and have a IQ sight on my Iceman I will mount tomarrow. If the weather cooperates will spend some time with the Granson's flinging arrows, bought a Bobcat for the 8 yearold so he's got his own bow now. I wanted this bow for the ajustability as it will probably become the oldest first hunting bow when he can pull 40lbs. Of course grandpa will have to break it in for him.
    I sencerely hope Martin Archery continues to give us quality bows that you don't have to hock the wifes diamond to get.

    AND TO ALL I WISH A MOST MERRY CHRISTMAS

    Mounted a new Ripcord and A 4 pin IQ, d-loop and I am ready to shoot this bad boy. Show me some of the stabs you guys are using with your bengals. The IQ added alot of top heavy to this bow and I will probably mount a stab of some sort to help balance this bow out. It felt so nice before I mounted the sight, light and deadly is what I perfer, I usually don't hunt with a stabilzer but this seems like it will need something to balance it out. Thought I'd shoot it tommarow to settle the string before I put a peep in the string.

    Run an Apache on mine without the extension bar. I like it.

    I KNOW; pictures, pictures but the wifes camera burned up during Christmas from grandchild (hypophotoism). Took forever to papertune this thing in the garage, three shots and a perfect bullet hole I am playing with a diy pvc stab, 1/2"pvc, put some packing peanuts and marbles inside 24" long and it feels pretty good. As soon as the wind stops blowing I'll take her out and run with it. If it works like it feels in the garage I will build a short one for hunting. I normally only pull 50lbs, this came at 59.8 and I have no problem with the weight, think I will leave her alone and just shoot it.
    Been a tough Christmas as stepson's (2) dad passed away last week. Great young men, feel for them.
