Looks to be a re-made steelhead that has the option to shoot with the blades open which makes zero sense. Solving a problem that doesn't exist. If you're going to shoot a fixed head, you'll use a head that utilizes the advantages of a fixed head. This has all the drawbacks of a mech head IN a fixed head.
Then, if you use it as a mech head, it performs poorer than a steelhead. A steelhead opens better than that thing, and is way cheaper. All around fail imo.
But you’re not allowed to say that about all mechanicals in general, because…
I totally get that the wide cut mechanicals offer a really wide cut (when they function as intended) and that that could occasionally save you some amount of tracking, but… REALLY?
So I feel the same way about pretty much ALL mechanicals that Mr. Pauls feels about this one in particular, and that makes me a Hater.
I guess I can live with that… I get it. I’m a Hater. But I’m a Happy Hater
I think there’s a Blue Light Special on right now in aisle 17......
And here I was just thinking about how absurd it is that it’s considered “Elitist” around here to suggest that any reasonably successful compound hunter/shooter could be just as successful within a year or so if they were to give up let-off and rangefinders...
Shooting a Stickbow is just Not That Hard, if you’re not fixated on the whole “Instinctive” mythology....
If you wanna use sights, use sights. BFD. If they help, they help. Personally, I find them limiting. Different brain wiring. So what? Ever seen a good NFL quarterback play Free Safety??
I just don’t get what’s so insulting about saying that you don't NEED any of that crap.
[Dad]: “Go for it, Son. You can do it!”
[Son]: “WAAAH!!! Mommy! Mommy! Daddy says I’m not good enough!!”
I agree with Adam. Mechs present compromises. You need a good reason to go that route, and a head that doesn’t offer something useful in exchange isn’t worth consideration.
As Neo said in “The Matrix”, “Because I choose too.” Whether that reason is acceptable to you, or not, is irrelevant. Now, follow up with a 2,000 word post on how much you don’t care what anybody shoots.
