After tons of internet research and shooting a total of 5 different bows at BPS, I made my decision. BPS Nashville had a Parker Trailblazer in 60-70#. I thought I would give it a try even though the draw was higher than what I had been pulling on all the other bows (50#). I was amazed how smooth the cam was on the Trailblazer. I was able to draw the 60# every time. I know that I will still need to build up my strength to be able to draw 60# while sitting in a chair, but I was able to draw it standing up without "cheating". IBO speed is listed at 302 and AMO is 230. ATA is 32.25", brace height 7.5" and weight is 3.5 lb bare. Retails for $419.00.

This is where it gets interesting. Against advice here I took a risk and ordered the bow from Cabelas. They are having a clearance on 2008 bows and they were selling the bow without any accessories for $299.89! Since I planned on changing some accessories on the Trailblazer package, I thought why not just build it from the ground up. I called Chad that was working with me at the BPS Archery Shop and told him that I made a business decision and ordered the bow online, but would still need his help to build it up and tune it. I told Chad where I got it and he told me that Cabelas was in financial trouble and was under cutting BPS by $100.00 on some items. I explained that business is business but I would still be coming in to get all other accessories. Well, I think he is a good guy and he will still help me build the bow. Anyways, I am pumped up about adding Limbsavers, string leeches, Hostage rest, Tru Glo Extreme sight, peep sight, sling, etc. etc.

Please add any items I need to put on this new bow.
