Default Prime shooters

Hello everyone,

Who out there shoots Prime? Pro's and con's? I have been looking at them and am curious how you like them.

I have a Prime Centergy Hybrid. I absolutely love this bow. It shoots better than I do.

Love my Rival, shot all the top of the line bows that year and have to say it was by far my favorite. The fit and finish is second to none, and the draw cycle was exactly what i was looking for.

When I purchased my bow I tried all the flagship models from most of the big manufacturers. They were all awesome, but the Prime Centergy definitely felt the best to me. It is not a speed demon, but it draws smooth, feels balanced and I shoot it confidently. Given the amount you are spending on a flagship bow from any of the majors I would certainly recommend you try a few on and see what works best for you. All are great, but one or two should sing to you.

I have only drawn a couple of their bows, but I find the back wall very clunky, like it slams into place.

The back wall is solid with the limb stops. You can choose to use the cable stops to change the feel of the wall.

I have a prime ION and it is the best shooting bow I have owned and I have owned a buch. the solid back wall locks you in to make you a much more consistent than a spongy wall
