Revelation Rev6 ready to rock!

Post by hoobilly » October 2nd, 2017, 6:38 pm

So I skimped in setting this bow up. Had a cheaper Trophy Ridge I kept In a bow trade and bought a like new QAD HDX for 60 bucks..

But it’s a sweet shooting bow.

Had to drop dl from 26.5 down to 26” to keep the string from grazing my arm.

But I ain’t complaining as it’s shooting the 350 ibo rating

In my 26” dl and at 68 lb pull, shooting a 372 grain arrow it’s cooking at 291 fps.

When I get used to shooting it and turn it up to the 72lbs I am sure it will easily top 300 fps

Before I had eye problems, I shot that rest on my Matthews and loved it. I also shot other earlier additions on other bows. The funny thing is that I shot that WC grn/blk string also! Do not get caught up in the hype of faster, faster, faster 372 gn at 291 is plenty fast enough to kill deer all day long at 10-40yards.I would leave your bow set to alittle lower poundage for hunting, I can't tell you how many times I got could and stiffened up and had trouble getting my bow back at 65# that I normally pulled back with ease on a warm day. If your a competitive shooter than that is a different story, speed will cut down on less pins, but I would shoot a lighter arrow for that and less #. I miss archery so bad and now shoot a crossbow that is just hard for me to get into.

I agree 100% its better to have less for when its really cold. I have shot all my bows right at 68-72 lbs over the years and 68 is pretty much my sweet spot.

I really want a spot hogg right on sight with size .010 pins as the 19 size makes me float over the spot I want to shoot.
Truthfully never been one thats a speed freak as my draw length over the years left much to be desired on speed. this bow shooting 291 fps is forgiving for a faster bow. quiet and no vibration. which is crazy for a fast bow not to have noise and bounce around in your hand, its dead in the hand and just flat out shoots.

I hope to shoot this bow for many years.. but I will probably have to gravitate towards a crossbow one of these days

Back in the day in the late 80's, and early 90's I had a Oregon Valiant Crusader that I shot on 87 lbs. Now I have to shot crossbows, because of pulling 80 plus pound bows for 25 years, and it sucks!!! Now days a 60 lb bow will shoot faster than the 80 lb bow did back in the day!!! :thumbup:

I don't shoot no where as good as I did 6 years ago :cyclops:

I start out slow and then get better when shooting. good shooters stay consistent

if I lightened up my arrows, installed the PSE roller slide that would probably get me over 300 easy. Probably will do the rollers and max out my limbs to see what i get for giggles. it shoots unbelievable right now, so I don't need to do anything to hunt
