    Default The Bengal with new strings

    DSCN1379.jpg Thanks Hutch for the new strings. The only people happier than a guitar picker with new strings is a bowhunter. Autum and Black look awsome on the bow. I used a Hoyt cable slide as my Martin one was eating the strings, have a hyperglide on order. Removed the STS and put a straight rod, used my Terrible Rigging Ghosts of the past for some damping and this thing does'nt even need whiskers. It's that quie't used one for the cable slide too as a stop, send me all the old TRG rubbers you can, they actually work for this. 4" shieldcut feathers just clear the new rigging. The Hoyt slide moved the cables in slightly removing some torque. Installed a new IQ 7 pin site and next is to the range.

    That's a good looking rig! And yes those colors do go well with it

    Yes it is a new IQ 7 pin sight. All three of my bows wear one and all three have a Ripcord arrow rest. So I guess you could say if I find something that works for me, it works. Managed to take our local clubs Senior Coumpound class last year with bows set up this way. I am (used to be) 6'4" and I can't get my nose on the string (stiff neck from staring into the sky for 30+ years) so the Retina Lock works for me as the 3rd reference point in my shooting. They are a solid sight so they are heavy compared to some.

    Looks close enough to take it outside when the wind dies down. I would venture a guess and say that now the real tuning begins.
