Are you sure about 90#'s? Most people switch to Bowtech so they can pull less pounds. I think that your going to have a hard time finding a dealer that stocks a 90 lb'er so you might not be able to shoot it before you buy. And if you should happen to not like the weight it will be an expensive lesson. Just my 2 cents.

If you didn't like the extra weight you can buy replacement limbs for around $100. So I say more power to you. If you can comfortably pull it go for it.

oh corey, to answer your question, honda is much better than polaris. the only decent thing polaris has is an independant rear suspension. honda or kawasaki makes the best quad out there for hunting IMHO. back to bows...no buckeye, lol, no envy. bowtech makes awesome bows...mathew's just makes them a bit better

I have two friends with 80 lb. Bowtechs........all I can say is I'm very jealous! they love them. The deer don't! I would really like to shoot 80 lbs. I think its time to really start working out!

Good Luck!

80#s isn't really needed anymore.... esp on deer sized game. I used to shoot an 80# PSE Carroll Intruder back when I was in high school... it was pretty easy for me to do at the time. I couldn't do it now if I wanted to. Back during that time.. it's what you had to do to shoot "fast" (300fps). I'm shooting my Patriot dually at 67# right now.. and I wouldn't want to even attempt to draw an 80# dually. It was shooting 296 fps at 62# w/ a 327gr arrow. Considering the amount of enery these bows are putting out today.. heavy weights are just another way to say you have a small..... uhh... brain.. that's it...
