Old Oneida for deep water or big fish, Bear 76er (recurve) for shallow fast shooting. both have an AMS reel and Muzzy fish hook. each has a place in my boat. Plus I love always having a back up.

Golden Eagle Predator bow with Muzzy arrow and head. Got an old bell shaped reel I guess you'd call it. I prefer it over a actual reel.

I have a Bear Polar recurve I use sometimes to.

I have a old Browning Nomad recurve as my main rig now with an AMS. My backup/deep water bow is a PSE Coyote recurve. I started using my daughters Browning Micro Midas last year just for fun, it shoots a lot like a Mathews Genesis (but better). I used an old Ben Pearson recurve for years but gave it to a guy that was wanting to get into bowfishing.

Picked a Monster Dragon last week. Got it dialed in & I've only had it out once but I'm loving it thus far. My Monster Phoenix is still out getting repaired. Sold the Bow Tech Allegiance

hows your experience with the rpm products? everything ive bought i just trashed bc not heavy duty enough for bowfishing
I have not had any problems. Though I have only taken about 50-60 (biggest about 30lbs)fish with the RPM shaft and tip. I like the design of the rest. I suppose the jury is still out on their product line then. Love AMS and Cajun archery though. I loose very few fish with the Sting-A-Ree.

I have shot rpm gear for a year and threw 2 reel seats and 1 straight shooter rod into the river this weekend because they broke on me. I don't horse fish or keep my drag super tight on my spinner. The bolts that thread into the riser on their reel seats broke off on me. I had to go swimming for one setup cause it fell in the river and the other I went to reel and the reel seat came off the front of my bow. The barbs on their point hold fish well untill they bend and break on you. I have a tip that I shot 3 fish with and the barbs are bent bad on it. Their rest is about the only good product they have IMO. They make a great looking product but it doesn't last for more then a couple trips out.
