Thought I'd say hi and post up my new Pulse. Living only a half hour from Elite HQ, I've been eying these bows for a few years. I don't like change, and have been a single cam guy for many years...well... i finally stepped out of my comfort zone and so far, couldn't be happier. I pride myself on tuning my own rigs, so I'll have questions as this system is new to me. Seems to be alot of knowledge here!
Now for the Bow: Left Hand Pulse, 28.5/ 60. pulling 62.7 lbs according to easton scale.
Limbdriver rest (another change for me)
Easton ACC 3-60 cut to 28" nock throat to end of shaft, blazers, 125gr. tips,13%foc, total arrow weight 432 grains. yes, a log, overkill for deer and turkey, but heavy arrow = quiter bow in my world.
My shooting chrony F-1 shows 278fps average with a loaded string (peep, loop, two tied nock points), 285 with 100gr points. I had some initial readings off the shop chrono that were much higher, but as it turns out, not real....
I've had it for a week or so now, and am very impressed, from the grip , to the way it holds, yada yada, it just feels good, period.
I was absolutely amazed to paper tune a bow in five shots, its been some time since a tune went that quick... Before walk back tuning, i decided to screw some fixed blade broadheads on for giggles...My Wac em" tritons were dead on with field points at thirty, WOW! Thats when a bow is tuned for me.
I must say I was reluctant to shoot a 6" BH bow for hunting, but after putting it through its paces, including bundling up in my hunting coat, its just not an issue.
i do have one question regarding the limbdriver. How far off the back of the riser are you guys placing it? i initially had it back a bit (3/4" or so) only because the bracket sticks out past the front of the riser so far, but it was bugging me that i was efectively shooting an "overdraw", so have since moved it forward almost to the riser if you follow me to get the launcher approximately in line with rear of grip at full draw. ( The picture is prior to me sliding it forward)I cant say it groups any worse, but i did have to move the rest towards the riser a bit to correct a small tear. On paper it, would seem to be a bit less forgiving now that its moved forward, but nothing crazy, hmm.. would think it would be the other way around. I have a bad case of "tinkeritis" when it comes to my bows... anyway, hello all!
