Does anyone have first hand knowledge about the Patriot II? This is a Bowtech bow with a Sportsman's Warehouse logo slapped on it. I am looking at a pretty good deal on the just the bare bow but wondered if anyone had any horror stories about it.

No horror stories. Pretty nice bow. Shot one quite a bit ("product research" :rolleyes: ) when I worked at the Warehouse.

Is it the Dually or the Solo?

The Dually is very very good but the Solo (the one with the post cam) is absolutely AWESOME. The post cam is in my honest opinion the very best solo cam Bowtech ever designed.

A decent deal on the dually I'd probably get it. A decent deal on the Solo? If it fit me I'd probably buy it.

The other later model Bowtech to really keep your eyes open for is the "Old Glory". That bow sets the shooting machine accuracy standard. No joke, it's a seriously accurate bow.

Leo it is a solo cam. I haven't shot it yet but it felt good to hold and I like that it has an IBO of 315.

Jer, the fella at the counter told me the string that it came with was as good as winners choice. What do you think?

Many folks will tell you BowTech makes the best factory string.
(That's a bit of an oxymoron to me though. :lol: )
Mmm... I'm personally neither impressed or disappointed with BowTech strings.
FWIW, my Constitution still has the factories on it.

I was under the impression Bowtech came new with Winner's Choice strings on them. Seriously, I had no idea Bowtech made strings.

I'm winding my own strings nowadays. So it is really of no concern to me.

Anyhow I can positively say without reservation the Bowtech Patriot with the solo "post" cam is a GREAT bow.

BowTech started making their own strings in either '05 or '06.

When I was working at Sportsman's Warehouse they had an agreement with BowTech to allow archery department managers to go to the factory and see the production as well as build their own bow. (Wish I had stayed long enough to go as archery department manager was offered to me last summer if I could have just gotten back to work. :( ) Anyway, the manager at the time came back with an '06 Allegiance he built himself. He commented on their string making process. (I think I also heard somewhere along the line WC was ticked when they went in-house.)
