Hello all, Thanks once again for all your help guys. That really clears things up. Rob: Well noted on the Samick Sage and Ragim equivalents, I guess you get what you pay for... 200 bucks is hard to argue with though. Steve: Love your work.

Hi Rob, WOW. For a 135 bucks and the cost of a new string thats a great deal. Can I PM you for the link? Steve, Thanks for your reply!

Re: Feral Game Hunting Kit

Hi Matty,

Thanks very much for your reply. Was it obvious i've never shot before? :lol:

Sent you a PM for further info, and i've signed up to Yarra Bowmen Victoria's mailing list so I can get in there once somebody figures out which broadhead kills COVID.
