    rheostat light
    i dont see the different with and without. i shoot outdoor and sun is So hot and bright. so with or without does not make any difference.

    level bubble.
    i bought an additional level bubble, end of the day, i just donno where to place or find a sweet spot on the bow for the level bubble.
    still in the store room since day one.

    Some China made Broadhead
    So cheap, half price and double in quantity. JUNK.
    either it does not fly true, or the blade just come loose.

    To put a bit of humor in this thread I'd have to say the worst thing I ever bought was my first compound bow back in 1974. Since then I've spent about as much on archery equipment as I paid for my house.

    Things to consider; What if a company that gives you good freebies has a bad product? What about if your sponsor has a product kind of shabby?

    Sponsorship is like a business partner for advertisement. We have to say good even if its not good (that is what working life is... we lie).

    The key question is when you bought the house, first house I bought cost less than the last car I bought.

    I recently bought a target that seemed like a solid buy...front shoulder / vitals w scoring rings (think Delta McKenzie, but not positive)....that thing is horrible...15-20 field points in it & it looks like a Rinehart after 15,000-20,000 arrows. Should have just flushed 55.00 down the toilet!
