Going to the big city this weekend and if everything goes well I will be making a trip to RMSGear. I always love to go there are check out all the different bows, It's easy to get overwhelmed and it's easy to over shoot and tire your arm out while you're there.

I did a quick look at their bow selection and it looks like they have some real winners for me to try out, some toelkes, centaurs, holm made recurves, some cool vintage bears, pronghorns, and I even saw a shrew.

cant wait!

+1 on the pix, Clay. Just thinking about all those bows gets me all giddy.

Be careful; those things tend to follow you home!

I'm already trying to think of ways to justify bringing a new bow to the rack, lol, maybe if I sell off some bows I dont shoot very often.... :)


I'm excited to do a comparison between the other shorty r/d bows like the shrew and 56" pronghorn compared to my pika and see how they stack up. A lot of times the bows I am interested in are too heavy for me to really enjoy, but it looks like they have a good spread in the 45-50 range this time. tomorrow will be the day.

Well I'm on the way back home from the big city. I almost didn't get to go the archery shop because of snow and bad roads but I decided to hell with safety and braved the icy roads. I didn't take as many pics as I had intended but I did snap a few. Things are so busy in there I just get caught up in the moment. I had them help me tune some arrows to my bow, then took a few of their inventory bows out to the range.

I gotta say some big name bows were pretty underwhelming and some were everything you could hope for. The centaur I got to take for a test drive was at the top of the stack. My goodness what a sweet shooter that bow was. As carpdaddy would say, it got me lusting for sure.

Sounds like you had a great time.
Looking forward to the pictures when you get the chance.

I'll load them up when I get home graps. Oh yeah something else that was pretty interesting. Joel Turner was there at the shop just hanging out like a regular guy showing people how he likes to work his elk call and giving someone some compound bow tips . From what I overheard I got the jest that he and Tom clum teach archery siminars together. Either way I was surprised to see him.

Clay...howd your Toelke hold up to other bows?

I've wanted a Centaur for a while now too.
