I just recently acquired a Deadeye and am interested in other owners of said bow and it's performance. Crono. Dampening tips. Best mix of things to optimize this really nice shooting bow...any advice or input would be appreciated thanks..oh and just for a run down on my setup. As of right now octane r.a.k. package 70# 29" draw. Easton F.MJ. 400. Rage C.O.I. 100 grain. Thanks again

I LOVED my Deadeye. Only sold it to get my RPM 360. Mine was 72# flinging 380gn arrows 316fps.

I noticed that most people ditch the octane gear. Any particular reason or just personal preference?

It depends. Some bows come equipped with decent sights some Diamonds don't. The 5" Hunter stab is effective but most find it isn't long enough. The quivers are good to go. The Hostage rest is good but depending on the texture/finish of the arrows shot through it will require brush replacement at some point (they are easy to replace and inexpensive). Many people want to go with a drop-away anyway.

Good deal...I was actually thinking about a drop away myself. Not really sure which way to go tho...so many choices over so many price ranges it's hard to decide
