Sighting in the new Spyder 30

Postby 1080tommy » Sun Feb 24, 2013 5:37 pm

Well finally got out to BPS in Gurnee and sighted in my Spyder 30. Last week they had a hunter safety class so I could not shoot. She seems to be in at 20 and 30. The range at BPS is pretty nice but lighting is not the best and it is difficult to see the arrow as it hits the target. The range goes from 20-27 yards and you will probably be right at 30 if you go upstairs because it is a few yards back and they also have a tree stand mounted on a fake tree that is pretty good for hunting practice. Here is the vid I got of the performance. Some shots are not in sequence but for the most part you will get the idea. Very quiet, smooth, and fast as can be noted by the cameras mounted on the bow not vibrating all that much on any of the shots. Next week if I am not out chasing gators and eyeballs I will go out to a 3d range and get some farther shots and sight her in at 40-50-and 60 yards. Here is the vid:

That's a nice bow, I almost bought it but went with the Hoyt CRX. I found them to be very similar in feel, the Spyder was like $300 more and I just couldn't justify it. :beer:

I hear ya! The thing that sealed the deal for me was that I felt the Spyder shot better than the carbon element and the element was 1250 for a bare bow. The guy at the archery shop also gave me 50 dollars off due to a military discount so the bow was 850. I have seen the new Spyders anywhere between 849 and 950 so I thought that was a good deal. I have heard good things as well about the crx and shooting the charger, element, spyder, and spyder turbo along with some of the Mathews flagships, the crx is a Hoyt and they are sweet shooters for sure. I guess all of them were real nice but for me, the spyder just felt right.

IMO It's very important you be able to see your arrows in flight.I couldn't tell from the vid what color you have for fletching but I would suggest using yellow or orange.Good luck!
