hello folks,

looking at upgrading my old Buckmaster G2 bow to something with newer technology and some more speed. I've heard alot about the Dead eye and like the speed, look and new roller system. One negative things I've read is then are a louder bow and people have complained about hand shock. Any thoughts on this one??

thank you

Not loud by my standards and I also owned a Guardian, Commander and a Marquis, three of the quietest/smooth bows of all time. I did a a slight string hum on the Dead Eye, cat whiskers cured that. Bow is fast and accurate but at 72lbs the Throttle Cam was getting to be a little tough on my old shoulder. Much happier at my age with my 07 Guardian at 71lbs than the Dead Eye turned down to a more comfortable to shoot 63lbs .

I had an 09 admiral and I think this bow is way quieter than it was. After I adjusted the string stop, very little vibration. I am loving this bow.
