We strongly recommend a high quality layer or bag target for use with this bow. Arrow penetration from the Rush XT is very heavy - and it will literally weld arrows into basic foam targets. Don't waste your money on cheap foam blocks from the department stores; they won't last an hour against the Rush XT.
|Are you ready to go fast - really fast - without the noise, vibration, and harsh draw cycle? Are you ready to drive tacks at 345 fps without a breath of recoil? Then you're ready for the new Strother Rush XT. Hunter's Friend is proud to finally welcome Strother Archery. We've been stalking the Strother bow line for several years - trying to bring the brand in, but industry politics always kept us sidelined. Not any more! In 2014, we finally made the deal. Strother is with us now!
The Strother Rush XT is a brutal performer that comfortably mingles among the very top bows on the market. Powered by the exceptionally smooth Badger II Binary™- style cam system, the Rush XT develops tremendous power - yet you'll be flabbergasted by the complete absence of vibration at the shot. We practically slobbered on our kisser buttons the first time we shot this bow. It's remarkably stable and easy to shoot. It easily makes our top ten quietest bows list, but the Rush XT blasts arrows like radical speed bow. If you have never shot a top-tier bow like the Strother Rush XT, get ready to be thoroughly impressed!
Don't know Strother? Actually, you probably do. Kevin Strother is decidedly the most influential and sought after bow designer of the last decade. More than a half-dozen bow lines (including some very big names) now express the Strother genetic traits. Chances are, you already know them. Those long sleek serpentine risers? Those menacing batwing profiles? The wickedly preloaded limbs? ... that's pure Strother DNA. Many of the fastest and most-celebrated bows of the last ten years are direct descendants of our industry's eugenic Genghis Khan.
Of course, we've loaded this outstanding bow up with everything: rest, sight, arrows, stabilizer, bow case, wrist sling, mechanical release and MUCH MORE. But don't expect the box to be full of loose parts and assembly instructions, because this awesome rig comes ready for action the moment you unpack it from the case. Our pro-shop does all the work in-advance. So this awesome bowhunting rig arrives 100% ready to shoot. Scroll down for all the details.
|Custom Cam Tweaks
The Badger II cam features twin draw stop pegs, anchored in two slotted grooves. This allows you to tweak the bow's valley and let-off any way you like. Want a more generous valley for hunting? Want a tight feel for back tension shooting? You got it.
This bow stores a devastating amount of energy. Dry-firing the bow literally makes the bow unleash that power upon itself. We promise you ... dry-firing this bow will result in immediate (and expensive) cam damage. Never shoot - never even draw - this bow without an arrow properly nocked on the string. Don't risk it.

Lightweight soft cases easily fit behind truck seats, in closets, under beds, etc., and are the popular choice.|

BOW PACKAGE DETAILS: SERVICES PERFORMED
Every bow package is hand-assembled at our Pro-Shop by a qualified archery professional. No details are overlooked. The peep sight is served in place, the nock or loop set is installed, the draw length and weight is set to your specifications, all hardware is carefully installed and properly adjusted, and your arrows are custom built to suit your particular bow and settings. The string gets waxed, axles lubricated, and the bow is given a thorough inspection - top to bottom - for any flaws in manufacturing. If the bow and related gear aren't up to standards, they don't leave our shop!
We actually test-shoot each bow. Every bow is paper tested by our staff shooters, to ensure that your arrows will fly like a laser beam when launched from your new bow. Adjustments are made as necessary until each arrow tears a clean "bullet-hole", indicating perfectly level and straight arrow flight for the best possible accuracy. We resolve any and all fletching clearance problems and align each arrow nock for a clean zero-contact launch. Be advised that paper-tuning results are only repeatable if you shoot with proper form (no torquing, trigger-jerking, improper grip pressures, etc.).
Each bow is tested at distance to ensure that arrows will group tightly. 3-Arrow groups are shot at 15, 25, & 35 yards and measured by our staff shooters. We use the 25/2 rule. If our staff shooters aren't grouping 3 arrows into a 2" circle at 25 yards with your new bowhunting package, then we retune until the 25/2 rule is met. While variances in individual shooting form makes exact pre-sighting impossible, we test shoot each bow and rough-set your top sight pin for a 20 yard shot. This gets your sight-pins in the "ball-park" so you won't have to start from scratch - possibly sending an arrow into an unforgiving neighbor's yard.
When you receive your new bow system, you will just need to make fine adjustments to the top pin, then finish-up by setting the remaining pins for the distances you prefer. And if you're new to the sport, or not so handy with tools and gadgetry ... don't worry. You'll also receive a copy of our booklet Getting Started with Your Compound Bow which offers detailed instructions on the sighting-in procedure as well as helpful maintenance and safety tips. WE STRONGLY RECOMMEND YOU READ AND UNDERSTAND THIS BOOKLET THOROUGHLY BEFORE YOU BEGIN SHOOTING.
We chronograph each bow to ensure that the actual arrow velocity is within the expected range. You will receive a System Statistics report with your new Ready-to-Hunt™ Bow Package. This report will precisely detail the exact velocity of your arrows, grain weight and length of the arrows, recommended tip weights, the exact bow settings, and dozens of other specs related to your bow system. Keep this sheet for your reference. If you ever need additional arrows or want to make changes and adjustments on your bow, you'll have the original data for reference.
|PACKAGING AND SHIPPING
Each fully assembled bowhunting package is delivered - packed tightly in the bow case of your choice. Loose parts, like the release and broadheads, are all safely tucked inside too. Once full, the bow case is boxed and sealed for safe transport. Your bow system is then shipped, via FedEx Ground, to your home or business. A tracking number will be provided to you, so you'll know when to expect delivery. All packages are fully insured and require a signature at the point of delivery.
