Cabelas Interceptor bows

Postby ranwin33 » Tue Sep 02, 2008 5:37 am

Has anyone had any experience with these Cabelas bows?  I think they're made by Parker.
 
Cracked the limb on my Browning Illusion this weekend, with a September 18 hunt date coming up fast, I'm thinking about getting a second bow.  I like the Illusion a lot, so not sure I'd want to relegate it to secondary status once it gets fixed, so not necessarily wanting to spend large sums of money. 
 
Another part of me says get a Diamond Black Ice and use it as my primary bow.
 
Any thoughts?

I got a Cabela's bow. I got it in 2005 its made by PSE. I love this bow but they stopped selling it. I have people all the time ask me if its a Mathews. I just laugh. I couldn't afford the Mathews. There nice bows.
I think Cabela's carry nice archery stuff but I'd go to a real archery shop to get it setup.
Bass pro shop I think have there's made by Hoyt or reflex same thing.
How did the limb break? Never heard of that before. I knew a guy that left his in the car all day at work and the limbs came unlaminated.

Thanks for the info.
 
The limb cracked about three inches right down the center up where the idler wheel is.  I drew back the bow, heard the pop, said that can't be good, released the arrow, watched it fly about 10 feet wide of the target, then spent about a minute looking for the crack.  It's only a hairline but definately there.
 
I wish I could find a good local archery shop that had decent customer service.  We have one in town, but the two times I've been, service has been poor to non-existant.

Thanks, I thought they looked very similar to the Parkers.
 
I'm leaning toward the Diamond now - after talking with the guy at Cabelas he seemed to feel there was no comparison between the two.

I hope so.  It will most likely be what I'm in the field with opening day as not sure if I'll have my Illusion back in time.  I've read good things about them.

I recently purchased a new bow and I shot many bows and many of them were Diamonds. I didnt end up going with one, but I sure did like how the black ice shot. Diamonds are made by BowTech and they make excelent bows. If I was looking for a back up, I would have no problem getting a Diamond. If you are looking for just a back up tho. I would also take a look at the Fred Bear bows. Some of there middle of the road ones (a little cheaper price) are not too bad. I noticed that some of them have a cam system similar to the darton's, which are pretty nice. Its like everyone says tho. shoot til you find one that feels good.
