New Ross Bow
« on: May 23, 2011, 09:33:35 PM »
Well, got my new Ross Crave 33.5 on Friday and finally got a chance to set it up today.  Shot 3 arrows at 10, they looked like they were flying nice so went back to 20 to site it.  Shot 3 more and wham, that expensive sound.  Great shooting bow!  I may be a contender with the Ross/Stud combo.  I think my Elite Pure may be for sale by the weekend.   :)

Well the Ross did the job over the summer with a few first place finishes and I took the overall award as well.  The Ross is in front of me for the pics.  I use a Montana Gold Red Zone 5 pin site, Trophy taker Drop Zone rest and a set of Bernies satbilizers with v-bars.  For arrows, I use the Darkhorse 400 studs at 27" with 90 grain Parabolic inserts (gives an FOC of just 0ver 11%) and weigh in at 314 grains.  The bow is set at 60# for 3-D.  I will try to remember to take a better picture of the bow or at least a closeup.  LOL  My kids also did well with my daughter winning a few shoots and the overall award as well.  My son shot but they did not have any over all awards for the Pee Wees but he still got some hardware.  LOL

I may be biased but it make sense to me that if guys are investing a good chunk of change in a bow that is capable of that kind of accuracy why wouldn't you feed your new baby some high performance arrows to match? I wont lie it is nice to hear how many guys have destroyed Darkhorse arrows in this fashion!

Absolutely, The darkhorse arrows have performed flawlessly over the last year for me.  Looking forward to see how one can skewer an elk in the next few weeks.  For hunting I will be using the 340 Stud series with 100 grain 2-Blade Rage broadheads and Blazer Vanes.  If any is looking I may be able to provide you with a some of these great arrows.
