I shot a bear for years and it was forgiving and reliable. Never had any issues with it but I just felt that it was time to upgrade. I bought a used (demo) Prime Centergy Hybrid (AXA is 35” but I’m 6’4 so that helps) and here are my thoughts on my specific bow and dealings with Prime. First, as long as you are the “original” owner, you register the bow and are entitled to their warranty and free strings every two years. Considering mine was a demo, I got the bow half price, but was more concerned whether or not they registered the bow, which they did not, therefore, I am the “original” owner.
