I am only interested in the limbs you mailed Thu or Fri. If Zach doesn't like them we are doing a trade. I hope they don't take weeks! I am selfish! Ha!

I hope they fit one of you.
I have shot more arrows out of hex6s than everything else put together not counting compound bows mind you.

I have a nice bronze Tempest riser that would look real pretty with those limbs. One call, that's all!

Otherwise it might make a good down payment on a used Timberghost ss3
#50 ish at 29 inches, just putting it out there!

Thanks I just sold a camo Tribute. I just missed out on those limbs. I have hex 6 S I need another heavier set for backup bow.

I guarantee it will fit one of us if not both. You have more Hex 6 or 6.6 good deals.

It took me almost a month to get a package from 30 miles away last month through the post office. The month before that, I got a longbow two two weeks late with the top 1/3rd of the box missing and the bow just sticking out of the remainder of the box - with a nick out of the belly of the bow. Shipped from a local address, should have been 3 days, not 3 weeks. No problems with UPS or FedX, just the post office. It has gotten third-world-country bad. I've talked to them repeatedly and they have no explanations.

I live in South Florida
I run a small marine business I ship quite a bit. I gave up on the post office years ago. FED EX for anything that matters at average 20% less than post office. I could tell you some tales here is one. A customer mailed me a check from one Island up about thirty miles the check never showed he wrote another it arrived. A year later a friend dropped off the original delivered to his address not the one on the envelope just happend to know me. The letter looked like it had been on a garage floor for awhile greasy and filthy. I have many more the one thing that really made me quit was standing in line while two employees out of four spots went as slow as they possibly could talking and acting like there was nobody there at all while fifty people stood there fuming.The Gov took over a whore house and bar in Nevada and went broke.

This is what I find a bit hard to comprehend. I know that doorstep delivery of ice stopped long before I was born. I barely remember milk being delivered to our house when I was knee-high to a grasshopper. The USPS has struggled to stay out of the red for longer than I can remember, when their business model is based on shipping little pieces of paper in little paper envelopes that basically weigh the same as air. What if an entrepreneur told you 25 yrs ago he was going to start a business shipping basically anything you wanted to buy right to your doorstep while under cutting any brick and mortar price you could find? You'd have called him insane...the fuel, the vehicles, the planes, the labor. You'd tell the idiot he would file Chapter 11 before he took his first order, just like I would've. I shudder to think of the windfall Amazon will earn in a Covid-19 "new normal". I see way more Benzy vans than mail trucks these days anyway. If the richest man in the world can pull that off, think what he could do with a privatized USPS with the deadwood removed....the profits would be sinful! And yes, my wife's Prime membership is likely the greatest return on investment I realize every year. I think Jeff sends her a Christmas card every year, but she won't let me see it!

A buddy of mine shipped a 1 piece longbow and it took over 9 days shipped priority and it finally showed up damaged and unrepairable. USPS is definitely living up to its reputation.

Idaho to Oklahoma took 37 days 3 day priority mail USPS. Box was utterly destroyed when it arrived. Luckily, it was just some AR500 plates for shooting so pretty much impossible to harm.

I bought a DH Ventura from US and got it in 10 days up here in Canada. That’s in the norm with USPS / Canada Post for me.
