    Prime Rival

    Hey guys,

    Put about 150 odd arrows through the new bow, its brilliant. Put my Ripcord rest on it, pure luck that it was bang on, no adjustment required.
    Put my sights on and adjusted a bit to get it shooting like my old CST. Found my anchor again and now it's back to aiming at different target faces again.
    The back wall is actually something to behold. If you were wondering if it was as good as they say, it is.

    It has an adjustable let-off, useful if you spend hours at full-draw.
    It also comes in some decent colours, if that floats your boat.
    The finish is outstanding.

    Con's:
    It's heavy.

    Agreed. Absolutely love my Rival and find it draws close to 73lb at 27"dl. The backwall is as good as they say, Super comfortable to draw and lovely on release.


    If you think the rival is heavy i dare you to grab a mathews haha

    I just sold my CST. So compared, it's heavy!

    If you like lighter bows, then Hoyt carbons are hard to go past.

    What causes the solid back wall, Doug? Does it have limb stops, like an Elite?

    Correct, limb stops. I put a bomar draw stop on my CST, but being fairly strong, it still felt spongy when 'pulling through the shot'. Never realised that this sort of draw stop existed. Very impressed. The bow is even more dead in the hand than the CST was. Considering removing the stabi as I don't think it's required.

    Didn't need to. Shoots beautifully.
