    Default I'm pregnant

    This post is not meant to disrespect women but I feel like I'm pregnant!!! That's right. I am getting a new bow from MXtuner, and I am so excited. I am getting a flat black slayer. I think 07 model. It is going to have the Nitrous C cams for my ape-like arms. He is going to use the 13" limbs in camo. This will lower the brace height, and at around 55-60 lbs, should be fast. Maybe 325 or more IBO. He got me a Bodoodle Pro-Lite 2 rest. I am ordering a Kwikee Kwiver 3 arrow for it, and having it shipped to him. He is trying to find a sight for me. He is even painting a stabilizer for me so that it will match. I sent him a peep, and I sent him a picture of my string on my Cougar II so that he can get the peep to nock measurement. It is going to be X rigged. I have not bought a new bow since 1981, and I think this one will be exactly what I want. The only thing I will have to do is have the kisser button tied in. I have my previously mentioned new box of Wally World errors (that's how we say arrows in NC). I think I am going to go with the rage mechanical broadheads for hunting per Jim's recommendation. I know I am going to love this bow when it is delivered as much as I love my Cougar II. Gestation is almost complete.

    I tell you what Gents, you better get you one of these slayers before they are gone, because when their gone, their gone. Jim is the best, he really knows his Slayers, that's for sure! I can tell that each bow he puts together is a labor of love. I love that man!!! My new BFF for sure.

    My old Cougar II, might not see much action next year, but I will always love it. Come on Slayer, I can't wait!!!!

    The 06-07 Slayer's were rated at 335 fps, with your long draw and a short brace height, you'll have increased time ( lenght of travel ) on the string which means more acceleration. Congratulations on the new flat black baby!

    I have put my 2005 SlayeR SE to the test at 30-100 yards. So far so good. Little loud and a little heavy but dam good at 50 and in. Put her to the test at 35 mock up 3D type and out shot my Centriod. I also got to Thanks MXs. Will most likely get Huch to do his magic and get a set of either 8190, BCY X or trophy to get her a little more com down for 3D comp.

    Gonna have to work up to the massive weight of that 05 SlayR riser, huh Pete? You'll soon get used to it and find it holding steady at those longer ranges.

    Ck concur, the big difference is that it's well balanced. It' loud that for sure. Put a couple of monkey on the cable and string which helped. I'm thinking 8190 as it some what forgiving. Any IDs all.

    Interesting about Slayr's. They do have some vibration but can be quieted somewhat. But the feel you get used to as the bow moves forward at the shot requiring different shoulder muscles to hold bow up. On long matches, surprisingly less fatigue. Also for the same draw weight, Slayr's perform the most work by being faster than all other designs. This shows that It is a very efficient design, lending itself to more accuracy potential.
    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.

    image.jpgI will give up some vibration for speed and accuracy. The monkeys tails seem to help, two on the cable and two on the string. So far very very accurate at 50 and in. Will experiment out to 100 when the weather gets better here in N. Az. It the wind here at 7000 feet during to spring. Snow tommarow.

    Do a Search, Google - archery history, test write up...IBO test, 327 fps, draw cycle efficiency 95%.. The 2008 Slayer was a bow that should have never went away. Again, a friend of mine has one.... Just plain deadly pin point accurate and faster than....yeah...Have it in a heart beat if he'd let it go....

    I don't know what happened. Somebody just plain dropped the ball... The Slayer gone. The Scepter IV (?) rated at 345 fps. What happened here? I mean one year and gone....

    I remember speaking with Terry Wunderle and him getting ready for Turkey Season. His Slayer down to 47 pounds of draw weight and pure poison....Terry was having shoulder problems...
    Former and current Back Yard Champion. I beat myself
