Default If you get a chance, shoot the Admiral

I knew I was getting a new bow soon, I just wasn't sure what I wanted. I shot the General, a 82nd Airborne, Elite GT500, Elite Z28, High Country Iron Mace, Bowtech Admiral, Bowtech SWAT, and Bowtech Captain.

I ended up getting the Admiral and it really wasn't a tough decision. This bow is everything that I could have asked for. It is very similar to the General, only better. (Insert jokes about the limbs if you must) It has been so windy here the last two days that I have only put about 60 arrows through it, but when I shot it in the range it was an absolute pleasure to shoot. Hopefully the wind holds off tomorrow and I will get to put this thing through the ringer.



Still waiting on my Octane stabilizer.

BTW here are the specs. 29" 70# 373gn Gold Tip XT Hunter @ 303 fps with G5 peep & brass nock.

Nice. I'm jealous that people are already getting their hands on these bows and I have to wait till the first of the year to decide which one I want.

How'd the Admiral feel compared to the Captain? What'd you like about one over the other?

My last two bows have been pretty short A2A so I definately favored the Admiral in that department. The draw cycle seemed about the same and the wall seemed the same. The difference that I could tell was that the Admiral seemed to be more dead in the hands, both at full draw and on the shot. The Admiral also seemed to be more quiet. These are just my opinions and it could be the fact that I had already made my mind up that I wanted the Admiral that I thought these things. I have always heard that a longer A2A bow was more steady, but I just didn't see it in this case.

It actually came down to the Elite Z28 or the Admiral. I shot a Bowtech Tribute then went to an Elite GTO. I know both companies make great bows. The Z was a touch faster, but the overall feel of the Admiral along with its looks are what swayed my decision.
