Camo finish

I can't seem to find what finish comes on the Q2XL. In the 2002 catalog it only says that its "available in preexisting camo color". This is an extremely easy question for anybody that has the bow,...

RE: Hey black knight 2 owners

I also have a 29" draw. I am able to use 27" Ics Hunters with 100 grain heads because I have the MZE which is an overdraw as well. These arrows work out to be 406 grains with 4" vanes.

RE: Safety Belt ....different choices???

I agree with Ausie-guy. Seat O The Pants is a good safety harness/climbing belt. I like using the climbing rope to hold me against the tree as i hang stands. As FLHunter said, I leave the leg straps...

Bowtech Black Knight 2 ?

After the season this year I think I'll buy a new bow. It looks like Bowtech would definitely be a company worth giving a try. I am leaning toward the Black Night 2, but have also given thought to...

RE: Fletching Adhesive

I use AAE fastset gel on my carbons and FletchTite on aluminum with vanes. If using feathers, I use BondTite on both aluminum and carbon.

Make sure you clean the shafts well !

RE: Improving Hunting Setup

Thanks JDoyle

You think it is worth adding the NV system on top of the limb savers already installed? I think I will definitely add the leeches.

How else can I make my setup better for hunting? Any ideas? It shoots quite well and is relatively quiet (although you can never have too quiet). I thought of adding PSE limb bolt shock absorbers...

RE: MZE or other drop away rests?

No, you can't use the Muzzy Drop-Away with the legacy. The rest uses the upper cable guard slide to raise the rest when drawn. Without a cable guard to put the muzzy slide onto it wont work.
