Mine is a XI Impact, Myles Keller model. It has a draw weight of 60-75 lbs. Used to shoot it at 65, then backed it down to the minimum. Have had it for about 17 years or so. Had a period of some 6 years where I was unable to hunt but have now been able to hit the woods pretty often, these last 2 or 3 years.
Tell you the truth, there are indeed some very attractive bows on the market, and they claim substantially better performance then my XI, but I'm the kind of guy who hates to part with something just because something new is available. To wit: I still hunt with my Remington Model 760 30.06. That gun is somewhere around 38 or 39 years old. Still looks reasonably good and still brings home the bacon.
About the only thing that might cause me to seriously consider a new bow is the draw weight of the XI. As I get older, I'm thinking that I might be more comfortable with a lighter draw weight. It is also a bit heavy as opposed to the newer bows.
What's you honest opinion of the Bowtech and what draw weight do you usually shoot? I'm going to assume that you shoot carbon arrows, since only us old dinosaurs still use aluminum.
