Had a guy send me a new string to test for him, gotta say I really like it. Made with brownell rhino string material, 26 strand flemish camo. He made up all the strands then turn half of them end over end for a rather unique string.
Left half is slightly different color than the right half.
I had to tweak the speed dial on the scope up just a bit with it, must be slightly faster  [biggrin] [biggrin] [biggrin]
Scope is set just over 325 fps with a 408 gr arrow, dead on at 60 yds  [love] [love] 
Check out that sweet cocker I made up!

I'd say that exocet is workin pretty darn good for ya. How you liking that crossbones. Checked them out and they run about 300 here. Gotta get some new broadheads and do some shooting and give the tact-zone an honest try. Bow season in just over 3 weeks.

I'm liking the scope so far, One thing about the crossbones is the fine reticule, I'm not sure how well it work be in thick woods. Most of my hunting is field edges and gas lines so shouldn't be a problem for me. Very clear an bright to look thru, eye relief is great. This one was 250 delivered, sold off the vari-zone so that helped.
Wifes Parker has the Parker illuminated scope, she likes that one.

Here's the exocet

Looks good Bruce, Those flemish strings look nice the way the ends are finished (a bear when I made one up for a longbow, though only had black so harder as hard to keep the strands halves seperate). Just for clarification you were just fine sighting it in at 60 yards right? No shots over 35-40 I'd hope (just me personally I guess).
Was shooting mine yesterday at 40. Was trying out the new Easton BVS vanes. Still on hold if like them or not. Hit about 4" high and 2" left consistantly from Parkers original bolts. Maybe just me but with broadheads was good with field points and Razortricks at 40, almost touching, with the original bolts. Refleched one was all over, consistant with original height but then almost 10" high and 6" to the right. Probrably shooter error but that shot felt real good. Lots of guys are switching to them as like them plus one guy who moose hunts to sets his Vision up at 80 yards and is accurate.

Yep Jon, just like to practice at 60 & 70 yds, use to practice with my compound 60 yds a lot. Any shooter errors shows up big time and after all, anybody can shoot 20 yds an hit a barn door. I still have a 70 yd sight I haven't tried yet.... and the pond dam is 85 yds from the deck  [biggrin]

I made up some Black Eagle's with blazer vanes for the Mrs - Thunderhawk, they hit high an left from the parker bolts which didn't surprise me being stiffer, not sure but they maybe a touch lighter. I know my Exocet loves that combo of Black Eagles, 110 gr insert an Blazers with 100 gr tips, total weight is 408 gr.

The guy made the end loops on this string tight enough I had I put a tough of string wax on the limb tips to get the loops to slide over them. He's been trying out different materials and what not searching for the "perfect" string for these bows, I just help him test em out. I'll have to find a picture of the tri-colored string he made me, it's beautiful. He's a admitted obsessive type A engineer, I'm a type D as in DUH!
