What bows are the strafer's using on the boards?

Just a question. I read sasja's bow comparison for strafe. I am starting to amass quite a few different bows, and I'm just curious as to who is using what, and why?

Please respond and talk to me...

I'll tell you what I've tried:

Goldstrike arch-excellent speed, seems to kill quite well even in hell un-up'd. I liked this one.

Eaglehorn-love this bow simply for the ITD and the damage. Bit slow though, need for lots of IAS gear required. This rips in hell, might even be OK in multiplayer games:)

Buriza-I actually like this even though you can only get to 10(?) frames with crossbows. Freezes target is a godsend sometimes and the damage is good.

Witchwild string-love the amp damage, stick a couple of shaels in and upgrade it and this will be very good in hell.

Riphook-Slows target, very fast, ll, needs upgrading though.

Overall I reckon my favourite strafe bow is the eagle, I'll never get max frames with it but most stuff dies pretty quickly anyway. For instance, I would prefer to wear atmas over highlords and amp targets. It kills faster to me.
Second favourite is still my buriza, but only for freezing arrow. 100% peirce=woot! :)

Never found a wf yet.:(

Goldstrike - 'cause its all i have.... well i have a wws, but it does not kill as fast for me. i dont really care about the resists on it, and my AR is waaaay to low with it. i'd gladly trade em both away for a BOTD though.

also i screwed up and put a sucky jewel in the goldstrike - whats the cube for unsocketing?

Hel rune+scroll of tp (god knows why they put that into the recipie) will unsocket items in the cube.

Hooray for 1.09! Cruel Great Bow of the Glacier (ShaelShael). 288% ED and 2-4 cold damage (gives it a beautiful blue color). It's for my Speedazon, using Strafe, Guided, and Multi at 7/2 FPS.

I personally use Mav's bow... but i guess that might not count since its with the rest of the set only.


Been itchin to try a goldstrike though. Heard good things about it and not rich/lucky enough for a wf :)
