My first E-500 arrived today, all the way from England. She is darn near perfect as best i can tell, not even a set screw mark from a rest. Original K8 cams, looks to be the original green and black string and cables and Mothwing Marsh camo(i think). I havent been this excited over a new bow in a long time. I cant wait to get her setup and shooting.

So are we if we had pictures! That is why you do the following:

1) Get home, jump up and down, open package
2) Take pictures, post them and brag
3) Fondle bow and drool like a fat kid with a cup cake
4) Say hello to wife
5) Say no to dinner so you can go shoot
6) Apologize to your wife (one month later) for not spending time with her.
7) Explain how hard it is to properly tune a new bow
8) Make sure dog isn't sleeping on the couch cause thats your bed now.

Well i couldnt stand it i had to shoot this bow before i went to bed tonight. So I installed a peep/loop, limbdriver, string tamer and threw on an old set of sights and shot it through my chrono. The bow is set at 65# 26" EZ mods 345g arrow 278fps not bad considering the cams are out of sync and i was 25 grains over IBO and just had the EZ mods installed. After switching to the speed mods tweeking and tuning and adjusting up to 70# i cant wait to see how much i pick up. I was really surprised at how nice the draw was :magic: and how the bow held and especially how dead in the hand it was after the shot. :jaw: I did not have any stabilizer attached either. I definately see why everyone loves the E-500 and mine wont be going anywhere soon. :dance3:

Envy....there looks to be something seriously wrong with your bow in the picture. If I could just see it in person I think I could figure out what it is. I'm on the north side of Houston!!!!! LMAO

Not fair. I am in England and never knew it was for sale...I could possibly have kept it here!

Where was it listed?

Congrats.

Wow, thanks. I guess they probably took it in part exchange against another new bow.

Will have to watch them, though I guess this is likely to be a one-off.
