  • Any pics of the 2012 Realtree AP finish?

    Looking at possibly picking up a 2012 Hunter. Anyone have pics of a 2012 full Realtree AP bow? Curious how the AP looks this year.

      That looks really sharp! I like the new decals on there too.

          AP looks great this year. More tan than gray look that it had.

              Wow, that does look really good. The Stokerized stab seems to match it nicely.

                Stokerized finish is identical. Seamless match

                  AP is AP, why would it look any different than any other year, other than a different logo?

                    From what I heard they are using a different dipping process on 2012's. Pete had mentioned that the new finish was less glossy, which they felt is more fitting for a hunting bow. There is a notable difference from my 2011 AP limbs. I think the pics of the 2012's seem to be a cleaner camo pattern IMO.

                      Just an FYI, you can take the blue spacer off of your rest. It is used for set-up to ensure you set the rest back far enough to clear the rear edge of the shelf. It will more than likely pop out eventually anyway from shooting. It is up to you, your bow after all, just giving some info. Sharp looking rig by the way.

                        The Stokerized matches great!

                          It's for matching the angle of the Hoyt risers. They're not square on the back. Back to the topic

                            I started looking and there is more than one of those little blue plastic blocks. Different shapes different applications.

                              Nothing could be further from the truth. Ever put this current RTAP up against the same camo pattern on say a Hoyt? The Hoyt is dull and really lacks depth and definition. The difference is like looking at cloth camo vs a photo of the real deal out in the woods. The new AP finish actually makes me want a camo bow for the first time in years.
