    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:
    WWW.REVERSEENERGYBOW.COM

    Attached is a picture from the web site.

    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

    Bowbill, if you read the first post you'll find all the pertinent details regarding axle to axle, etc.

    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.
