PowWow / bought a Waldrop Pacseat!

Well Ive been turning it over all summer, just took the bait!! I messed with a bunch of seating over the years for outdoors and hunting. Couple points I've always had to contend with are, hauling said seat to and from each and every hunting spot while sometimes still hunting ,sometimes while having a rucksack on It was a cumbersome task. Then getting a comfortable arrangement in different ground conditions once a spot presented itself come to mind. This Pac seat looks to be a great and flexible system. I think my rucksack is going to get affixed to the rear so it stays put while using it as a seat reducing the riggamarloe involved with just setting down quick and maybe for just a short sit. I would like to hear from anyone who uses one of these Pacseats, in particular the comfort level. I have lower back\tailbone and hip issues that really give me fits when I've sat in less desirable positions for a while that may get some relief from the hammock style of the seat I see this has.  Can't wait to get this out in the woods.

I have a chance to trade for a Tim Meigs Du-o-flex longbow but I really don’t know much about them. Anyone have any experience shooting one.

Nice buck, Gun.  I kind of like the old mag risers myself.  Haven't had a chance to try one of the Fred Eichler risers yet.

R.V.  Nice looking grip.  Does sit pretty low under the arrow rest compared to other Bear mag and wood riser configurations.

BW.  One of my shooting partners shoots a Border super curve.  Yes.  It is faster than a normal recurve of the same draw weight, but I couldn't really tell you how much.  The draw force curve is quite different.  It starts with substantial tension/weight and is pretty much flat the last several inches of draw, i.e., it doesn't gain any draw weight or only a pound or two in the last 4 inches of draw.  Some folks like this feel.  He seems to.  I don't like it. I get a cleaner/crisper release with a bow that continues to build weight to the end of my draw.  There's a lot of vibration in the limbs at the conclusion of the shot. Not really noisier, and doesn't seem to be harsh hand shock, but i can certainly feel more vibration at the conclusion of the shot with it than with my standard recurves. 

The Border isn't the only super recurve out there, and they all have the same characteristics.  Difficult to say whether you would like the feel.  Some do.  Some don't. Any chance you can find someone in your neck of the woods who has one that you could try out.

Many times what you see as "guests" are bots and web crawlers from search engine sites.

Still having a lot of issues with index page and threads taking forever to load. If I log out and come back an hour later it's generally much improved... :dunno:

I'm pretty easy to keep up with these days.  :)

Ha! Not me.  Luckily I got my Grandfather's genes. He was 76 years old during the blizzard of 1993 here in the south and he ran a chainsaw all day. A curve couldn't have keep up with him either  :biglaugh:
