    Yep Colorado Copper. Her old bow was a Hoyt Rintec Target and she wanted a bow she could shoot from the adult stakes at the "big" animals like Dad and Grandpa. At the local matches, kids only shoot out to 16 yards or so and shoot raccoons, turkeys, a bear cub?, and wolverines. She wants to shoot the Elk, moving bear, spinning turkey, Mountain goat, and my nemesis, the 45+ yard Cougar. We have a beautiful indoor club range that we can shoot 70+ yards indoors (Fast bows at least) that has benefitted from our local "dump" oops, discard recycling center, has put aside all the thrown away artificial Christmas trees so we have a cool indoor forest set-up.
    Addicted to Slayers or Slayr's, have more than one. Probably enjoy the mechanical side of archery the best. I have really enjoyed the articles and the stories on this site. I strive to help others with what little knowledge I have.

    Thats a long indoor range. How high are the lights? Nice of the recycling center, to help reforest the range.

    Another update...I must have scaled the limbs back too much. Was hoping for 30 lbs max...only getting 23.5, But man is G daughter pleased. About 50 fps faster than her Hoyt Rintec. Luckily she has to slightly strain at max so good to go for now.

    Wow, what a cool looking bow. You sure do great work. I wish I had gotten on this forum before I got my Grandson his Craze last year!! That is a cool looking bow!
