I just purchased the Nexus 1000. Now I have officially owned the "Big 3" from Bauer. The APX2, Total 1 NXG, and now the Nexus 1000. I'm here to tell you that all three are great in their own right, cannot go wrong with any of them. But I must say, the 1000 seems to fit my shooting style the best. I wish I would have tried it first.
