I went to the local gun and knife show yesterday. There was a feller there that hade this thing called a reverce energy bow. This thing is crazy. It fits in a backpack but ti shoots faster than even a matthews, or so this guy claims. He had few there and he showed us all how it worked, but he didn't shoot it.

Have any of you guys ever used any of these bows? How well do they work?

If you have never heard of them hear is the info copied from there website:THE REVERSE ENERGY BOW (R.E.B.) WILL REVOLUTIONIZE THE WORLD OF ARCHERY, IT IS THE BIGGEST CHANGE IN ARCHERY IN 6000 YEARS.
MARK OUR WORDS, WITH 9 PATENTS PENDING THE R.E.B. WILL BE THE FUTURE OF ARCHERY.
THE R.E.B. WAS DEVELOPED BY BOWHUNTERS FOR BOWHUNTERS OF ALL AGES AND ABILITIES.
BOWHUNTERS CHECKLIST:
* THE R.E.B. WITH ONLY 16 1/2" BETWEEN THE AXELS WILL SHOOT A 350 GRAIN ARROW 275 FPS @ 70 LBS. DRAW TRUE SPEED!!! 305 GRAIN @ 300 FPS @ 70 LBS.
*DRAWN FROM THE HIP, MOST HUNTERS CAN DRAW MUCH MORE DRAW WEIGHT WITH MUCH LESS STRAIN ON THE SHOULDERS.
MANY EX-BOWHUNTERS DUE TO INJURY AND SURGERY CAN SHOOT THE R.E.B. WHEN OTHER BOWS MAY NOT BE POSSIBLE.
*THE SMALLEST, MOST COMPACT AND LIGHT WEIGHT BOW FOR THE BRUSH, TREE STANDS, BLINDS AND LONG STALK HUNTS.
*DRAW WEIGHT 50-60 LBS. OR 60-70 LBS. WITH 65% LET OFF OVERALL DIMENSIONS: 21" LENGTH X 18" DEPTH WEIGHT 3.7 LBS. WITH SIGHTS AND REST (INCLUDED WITH THE R.E.B.).
*NO NEED FOR SILENCERS, THE R.E.B. IS ALMOST SILENT. SHORT WIDE RISER AND O-RINGED TUBING ELIMINATE MOST NOISE AND VIBRATION.
*HUNTERS CAN SHOOT THE R.E.B. IN A WIDER RANGE OF POSITIONS INCLUDING SITTING, AROUND OBSTICLES, NEARLY 360 DEGREES IN A TREE STAND, AND EVEN PRONE.
*FALL, WINTER, AND SPRING HUNTS NO PROBLEM! HEAVY INSULATED CLOTHING DOES NOT INHIBIT THE SHOOTING OF THE R.E.B.
*NO MORE ARM GAURDS NEEDED TO PROTECT YOUR LOWER ARM FROM THE STRING WHEN IT IS RELEASED.
* BIG SIGHT PICTURE WITH REAR SIGHT FIXED TO THE RISER FOR RIFLE LIKE SIGHT PLACEMENT. NO MORE MISALIGNED PEEP IN THE STRING. VERY ADAPTABLE TO OPTICAL AND ELECTRONIC SIGHTS.
*ONE DRAW LENGHT FITS ALL.
*INFEILD STRING CHANGES WITH NO TOOLS!
*INFEILD USER TURNABLE WITHOUT SPECIAL TOOLS.
*COMPLETELY CONVERTABLE FOR LEFT HANDED SHOOTERS IN MINUTES.
*THE BEGINNING ARCHER CAN BECOME MORE PROFICIENT AND ACCURATE IN LESS TIME THAN WITH ANY OTHER BOW. THE ONLY BOW THAT CAN BE SHOT WHILE WEARING AN UNDER ARM QUIVER.
*SAFEST BOW PERIOD.LIMB SAFETY COMPLETELY CONTAINS ANY STRING FAILURE.
*MOST TRANSPORTABLE. THE R.E.B. CAN BE COMPLETELY TAKEN DOWN TO A PACKABLE DIMENSION OF (2"X4"X16") AND REASSEMLED IN MINUTES.
BOTTOM LINE
*THE R.E.B. IS SIMPLY THE EASIEST, SMALLEST AND MOST STABLE.
AND THE R.E.B. IS JUST ONE FUN BOW TO SHOOT!

Besides the "backwards" nature of the bow, I'm still a bit confused as to how you hold it. It looks as though they've designed a crossbow just different enough to not legaly be a "crossbow".

You actually hold it like a rifle.

In the picture, you can see the handle in between the arms. You hold it so the limbs are perpendicular to the ground and you have to have s flexible cord between the locking part of the guick relese and the wrist strap. That bends past the Little rounded part at the left. It Might take a minuet to realize how it works because it sounds crazy. The cams turn almost 360 degrees. Think about it.

Seems like a viable idea for the gadget crowd.
I think there are already too many contraptions in the Archery world. But, that's why I shoot a takedown recurve bare.
But then, I'm not just into archery to hit a bullseye.

Kudos to the inventors for coming up with something neato.

Interesting idea, but I'd certainly have to get my hands on one before I'd put money in it. Gotta shoot it for an afternoon, fondle it a bit, you know.

that really looks different! I can't check now, but i hope their website has a video or two of it being used. If not, maybe i'll e-mail the suggestion.

Just for info-I bought this bow last summer and used it for the first time last September. VERY good bow. It needed almost no adjusting from the first and it was everything as advertised. Easy to carry (yes, fits in a backpack bought at Walmart), lightweight, and can use it from any kind of a deer stand. I shot my deer the first day out. I have no way of measuring the FPS of the arrow, but when the arrow hit the deer from about 25 yards I could see and hear it was a high impact. The deer ran less than 40 feet and dropped. I have been very impressed with this bow and plan to use it again this year. The only drawback I found is if you pull the string too far at an angle from the bow, it will jump off the cams. Takes about 15 seconds to pop back on, so once you learn what not to do on the draw-the rest is history....

I'm not sure about the manufacturer, but I know the brother of the man who makes them. I'll see if I can find out anything for you. Here is a website of a place that sells them - you might call them and see what you can find out : http://www.migunshows.com/totalpage.html

I love mine & will hopefully be using it for years :D

That confusing little piece of archery isn't legal in Minnesota. In Minnesota your bow has to be a certain minimum distance between axles and that little thing doesn't meet those requirements.
