Bows for finger shooters!

Been shooting a Hoyt-left-handed Gamegetter bow for several years.Was reading a hunting mag this morning and Hoyt has a new bow called the montega-for finger shooters.Have sent out a few e-mails looking for prices and if they even make a left handed one?Has anybody tried one yet and are there other brands that make a good bow for finger-shooters?Checked out the Hoyt site and no prices or if it's even made left-handed.Also what would be better-wheel or cam?

Hmm, I shot fingers as the release for many years starting out with a recurve. I guess my question is what's the difference between a bow meant for fingers and one that people commonly use a release on?

Didn't think there was two many finger shooters out there in FBO space.But i've always been a finger shooter.Eveybody else i know uses a release.But from what i've read,Iam going to go with the wheel.I like the longer compounds over the short ones.Sent some e-mails off today,letting a local sporting good store and one internet store what i'am looking for.Will have to see what they have to say!

If ur looking for a fingers bow take alook at the PSE Dakota.... it has dual synergy cams... 41" axle to axle.. shot a whisker buiscuit off of it. shot that for many years and used fingers. Very quiet and very easy to tune. It sure worked good for me. Don't know if they make it any more. Switched to another bow when I went back to release. You may want to check out the Reflex line of bows. They make bows for finger shooters.... Time to get prepared for this fall, its quickly approaching.

Hey Murdock,

I am a finger shooter also. I just purchased a new bow from CSS archery (custum shooting systems). This is my secound CSS bow and they are top of the line. You can still get a 45 inch axle to axle but I went with 43 inch and their new hybrid cam system. The price is around $500 with full packages between $700 - $750. These bows are built for finger shooters and you can get them in a lefty. Good Luck!!

My buddy just picked up a PSE custom shop bow at scheels in the used section with a 46" axle to axle length. One year old, $49.

I think releases are kind of fun. Heard another buddy punched himself twice as the release had a spring missing. Second time drew blood.
