    Black and Red 'should' be powdercoat just like the Martin line but I havent been able to verify that yet.
    Guess we will know all about them in another week...
    I really like my Nemesis and think that it would be a good shooter for you.

    i myself don't really care what anyone thinks or says about what i shoot. i shoot alien xs and just purchased a new onza 3. you are going to have those jerks out there that just like to start trouble. if you like mathews shoot a mathews, if you like hoyt shoot one, i prefer martins and rytera, which i think the alien x is the best shooting and the best looking bows out there, but thats just my oppinion, i could care less what my neighbor shoots, really they all do the same thing just a little differant looking in one area or another, 60 lbs. is 60lbs. i bet you take a 60 lb mathews and a 60 lb martin with the same equipment on them the arrow want get there any quicker than a couple of a thousandth of a second from either bow . as for being accruate ,most of that comes from the person behind the bow. the reason that one bow is more popular than the other is the amount of money the bow company is willing to pay for advertisement and celeberties to promote there product. i do think ted nugent has made a wise chose of which bow he is promoting. sorry for such a long reply. by the way that onza shoots great and looks good!

    Your post ain't so long Gramps. You should see some of mine. I like your use of the word "celebrity".. Some might call them professional hunters, but I think most of them act like anything but a true professional. The only likeness they have to a professional is that they get paid to advertise. That's much of the reason I quit watching those canned hunting shows a long time ago.

    VERY well said Barry. The hosts of the hunting shows may be bow "shooters", but they sure aren't "hunters". Once they start hanging their own stands, not hunting over feeders or food plots, and do their own scouting, I might start watching again. Always ticked me off to hear how "hard" one of them hunted. Walking out to a stand someone else picked out the spot for, and set up, then taking a nap while your cameraman keeps an eye out for deer is not exactly what I call hunting hard. Might as well set leg traps, and just pass it off as a deer standing or bedding right below your stand. I'm done ranting now. lol

    Then there's the guys who hunt on the edge of huge fields, that just happen to have 10+ deer in them, while most of us do well to to see half that number in the entire season.

    They never seem to shoot anything less than a 150 class buck. Or how about the guy that gives a couple toots on his grunt tube and that huge buck 1/4 mile across the field comes a runnin. 1/4 mile? Get real.

    I'd like to see some unedited footage of some of these hunts. I do underwater video so know what editing is about. Any mistake or mishap can be edited out. Just wonder how many misses or wounding shots get relegated to the trash can.

    Ehunter, not to pick on you, but I have never found anything wrong with taking a nap in my stand. LOL. Of course, it might have been nice to have that extra set of eyes keeping abreast of matters.

    Is'nt that called baiting? Why else would ten+ deer be in one place. Legal in lots of states. Just became legal in Oregon to feed, and what works best is corn and alfalfa. But unless the deer you're hunting lives near a corn field, not likely that the deer know what corn is, Alfalfa is a differnt story, open up the bale and even we can smell it, and the deer sure can, seems that they love it. But in order to get those 10+ deer in one place, you have to feed them there, a lot, over several weeks. Once established it can be very effective.

    The entire TV is hypocritical and disgusting so you must not be surprised that the hunting shows are like this. Thanks God for YouTube, forums like this one and the torrent sites
