Got the call yesterday afternoon my new LH RX8 showed up. Took 6 weeks to show up after ordering it which isn’t bad. It weighs a total of 5lbs with everything on it. I use a hip quiver so no extra weight added there. It’s suppose to be 65lb max but came from the factory at 67lbs bottomed out. I did a little shooting last night and had it pounding all the way to 40yds. Here’s a group at 20yds after about 6 shots. Very impressed with my new bow. IMG_1723.jpegIMG_1724.jpegIMG_1726.jpeg

I haven't let myself shoot one yet but I hear they are nice. I'm still shooting a 2008 model bow. I'm at 311 FPS with a 425 grain arrow. Not seeing any new ones beating that but I know a new one would be a lot more forgiving. Maybe this year..

I’ve been shooting Hoyt since 1994. Always preferred they’re draw cycle. Shot one and liked it. Lots of great choices in bows now days.
