I've been shooting a Quest Primal for 4 years now. Other than a new string or two, I havent had any problems with it. Nice bow. Missed a deer with it a couple years ago, but killed a deer and a bull with it last year.

I bought a Diamond from Cabela's since it is my first bow. I bought the Ultra Light bow. It is very light weight compared to some of the other brands out there. I upgraded the sight last week and bought some new arrows and heads to experiment with. Great bow for the money.

Wow I can't believe it's been almost three years since I bought my bow. Well, I ended up buying Quest Radical compound bow like I'd planned, and I couldn't be happier with it! It works great, and although I did hit a lot of snags after buying it (just general learning about bows stuff), I love having a bow. My biggest problem was finding a place to shoot it (since I cant shoot a bow where I live), but this last year a friend of my Dad offered to let me shoot it on his property and I'm hoping to get out there more this summer. I haven't gotten to shoot it very much so fare, because I also found out that it needed a trigger release when I had bought a tab (which I just recently bought). But when I do get to shoot it, I love how all of the accuracy relies on me and my stance. Which is a certain feeling you just cant get with a rifle (not to say it doesn't take skill to shoot a rifle, but you get what I mean). Anyways, thanks for checking up! I'm sure ill be back with plenty more bow questions/posts this summer.
