Willo B is selling a lot those Switchbacks right now. There is another place, a little further to the north of himt hat is selling them for that much too that would be a long hike from Fulton County. I was down in Bushnell the other day and it took me 1.5 hours to get from here (western Bureau County) (About 20 minutes away from Princeton) to Bushnell dragging a trailer behind me. His Outbacks are pretty reasonable as well, 585 or something like that.. Doesn't matter to me since I bought an Oneida.

if you boys are shooting that good you need to pack up and head to vegas for the shooting festival you shouldn't have any trouble staying in the x-ring.

I was going to offer to throw it away for you.

Guess if I want one I'll have to come by it honestly [:-]

Alright what have I been telling you guys all along? The Switchback is the top of the food chain. I've been shootin dimes with mine ever since I got it. Love it, Looooovvvveeee it. I think your arrows are borderline fine. It's that heavy 125gr tip your shootin that you should change. I told you that last night. I told you would love it didn't I? You scared the h*ll out of me when you titled this post throwin my Switch in the garbage. Guess you can say "GOTCHYA!!!"

Man i just hate this bow. It makes me sick i can put 5 arrows in a group the size of a quarter at 20 yrds [:-]. This bow is freakin amazing, i have never shot anything like it. In the groups i am shooting all the shafts are touching and create a circle. It is going to cost me money with all the damaged arrows. I don't care it is well worth it.
If you want to put an arrow in the middle of that circle, buy a Bowtech!

I have the same problem w/my S/back. Ive already damaged about 6 arrows b/c of grouping. This bow is SWEET.....I guess ill just shoot one arrow at a time...or put one in the 3d deers head, rear, leg, other leg, then kill zone. LOL...... Mathews did an excellent job...wow...

Coming from a 2 yr novice - are you sure its the bow and not you? What were you shooting before and how were your groups with it?
