Bowtech sr6 vs vertix/trial etc. looking for a new bow, gonna sample a few. Pros/cons? Ideas? Thanks in advance, I’ve been slinging arrows with the same bear bow for 20yrs, just thought it’s time for an upgrade.
Don't know much about any of the above. I would wait a month before buying anything however. Both companies will be releasing new models shortly. Even if you aren't interested in the new models you'll save a couple hundred bucks on last year's as soon as the new ones hit the shelf.
Funny how we all place different values on different things. I shot the sr6, vertix, helix and rx3. Vertix was the first one I ruled out. Then in the end I left with the rx3. Liked the feel of the rx3 in my hand better than the sr6. And the helix had a twang to it after the shot- just wasn’t quite as smooth.
I’ll add that the rx3 at 84.3 lbs felt like my old insanity cpx at 70. Hurt my wallet, but it’ll serve me for quite a few years.
I would wait for the new Bowtech offerings to come out. If they put the deadlock cam system on a more hunter-oriented platform it will be awesome. I have a Reckoning and the system works great, kind of the best of both worlds in terms of tuning (shimming vs yokes). With it you have infinite adjustablity instead of being limited by half-twists to a yoke leg or shim sizes. It makes bareshaft/broadhead/paper tuning a breeze WITHOUT needing a press, meaning you can make tiny adjustments in real time at the range. The system is a winner for me so far.
