Scheels Recluse Bow Made by Bowtech??
Does anybody have any experience or hear anything about the Sheels Recluse bow made by Bowtech?? This bow is on sale at Scheels for around $380 down from $499...and it seems like a pretty good deal. It is about 32" ATA, 7-8" brace height, weighs 3.7 lbs and has IBO speed of 315 fps and it is in natural gear camo. It shot like a dream. Looks like the Diamond Rapture except its faster and has a couple custom features.
The search forum shows no results on this bow...although the search feature seems not work at all for me.

I'm in the market for a new Mathews FX is around 8 years old and its time for a new one. I'm not one for a certain brand name...just like something that fits ME. Also considering Martin Bengal, Gander Mtn Tec, PSE Brute among a few others. Any info on the Recluse, any of thow bows above, or anything else in $400-500 range is appreciated. Thanks for the help.

I dont have any experience with that particular bow, but I shot Scheels' bow (was a diamond bow) from last year before I bought my hoyt and it was nice. I worked for Scheels at the timesomy costto get thehoyt was dirt cheap so I got it. One plus of the Scheels bow is the store will back it 100%, so thats piece of mind, no sending it in to get it fixed if something happens, they'll probably give you a new one if they cant fix it on the spot. Bottom line is they are nice bows for the money, with a great warranty.

Thanks Mike. Good to know Scheels stands behind their products. The other bow they have under the Scheels brand looks solid as well, I beleive it is made by Fred Bear.
I'm still very suprised at the lack of information out there on the Bowtech/Diamond bow under the Sheels Recluse name, considering the Bowtech/Diamond bow under the Gander TecHunter name has garnered lots of attention. May have to due with number of stores I guess...
