Customer Opinion from Grant Cooke
Thanks ever so much for all your assistance, suggestions and setting up of my new Hoyt Maxxis 35 bow yesterday. Your service and that of Abbey Archery was brilliant.
By the time I picked up some cricket gear for my son in Sydney and then got back to Yass it was quite late. I did however have about twenty minutes to have a rough sight in and shot out of my new bow in the backyard. It was fairly dull and bloody windy but ..... WOW !
I took the first shot at 15 yards to make sure that I didn't miss the backstop. I took a second shot to make sure that it roughly hit where the first one went. The second shot was a half inch from the first. The next four shots were all well within an inch of the first shot. I adjusted the sight and fired a few shots from 25 yards. Excellent.
I couldn't believe how easy it was to shoot the bow. The conditions were terrible and I was more concerned with getting the sight roughly right than worrying about grip, form, release etc. I'd never used a release aid or a bow anything like this one before and the arrows just kept going into tiny groups without any effort.
Compared to my finger release PSE Dakota, this bow is child's play. I can't wait to see what this bow can do at longer ranges and with a bit of practice. I can see why you said you don't shoot groups at twenty yards. Even I would probably damage arrows at that range! I really didn't intend to buy a bow near the top of the range like the Maxxis 35 but boy am I glad I did. I can't wait to get a bit of practice and then get out to call up a few foxes. If what I saw yesterday in the backyard is any indication, then the foxes are in for a spot of bother. Much more sporting than dispatching them with my heavy barreled Ackley Improved .220 Swift or .257 Ackley Improved.
Regards and many thanks. Order received today ! Grant Cooke
