    Hitting arm can be an issue on short b/h and is most certainly a consideration when wearing bulky clothing. Honestly though, I have had 7 in. b/h bows that seemed more troublesome in that dept. than...

    I've run the gamut from 9 in. b/h down to 6 1/8..... And I couldn't disagree with you more. First serious bow had 9 in. of b/h and I could stack arrows (as a rookie) like no bow I've owned since. ...

    More forgiving, yes. But I'm not so sure you'd be getting a smoother draw if you wanted to keep the speeds.... They still have to generate the power somehow. (Just less string travel/power stroke...

    I'm pretty certain that some of the newer COC low profile "hybrid" designs are FAR more efficient than that. Especially the ones that cut on both sides of the blade as they swing. I'm not an...

    My last post sounds like a sales pitch I know. It wasn't the intention, just an opinion. I have no vested interest in any brand of anything hunting related.

    In my opinion, picking the right arrow/ broadhead combination (properly matched to your bow) is the most significant/important choice you can make when it comes to selecting gear. On a "less than...

    I was wondering about that too. ~ And if that's something you can safely do (move the peg back one further than specified) without risks?

    Same thing happened to in the spring of 2014 with their 33 ATA 70# Chill-R which has large cams too. Very FUN bow to shoot and I've done well with it in the woods on whitetail. (I'm not a huge fan...

    Totally agree.... Way more valuable "sales-wise" than the TV bow hunting pros/celebs IMO! (The same goes for the magazine and digital media/tv ads.)

    What I really appreciate about Ontarget7's reviews is: even if you don't understand everything, he gives you enough information to properly set up and tune your bow providing you have the tools...

    Yes, it's sometimes the little details that make all the difference.

    As for back walls being spongy on certain bows I first thought that was the reason. It frequently seems many people shooting...

    One thing worth restating about specified brace height on this bow is: When you go with the number 2 cams, brace height is not seven inches. It's about six and three quarters with the limb...

    Or I could always go to "plan B" and acknowledge the fact I ain't getting any younger. Of course that would mean going with 75 (70?) pound limbs and turning those down lol/col.

    Here's the thing: you can gain about half an inch in brace height when you shoot side plates on this particular bow with the limb bolts backed down. It might be a touch noisier, but it should be more...

    I would think the less parallel the limbs are….. The more you gain in brace height when you back out the bolts.

    You have to also take into account possible noise considerations…. I wonder how much louder the bow is with the limbs backed off…..

    I know you can get 65 pound limbs. But does Hoyt also offer 75 pound limbs?

    More surprises, I also really like my Chill-R but it's 70 pounds. I put the 85% mods on mine which made the bow noticeably softer to draw and hold. I shoot slightly tighter groups with the standard...

    @Ontarget7:
    Did you ever get a chance to see what the difference was (if any) on brace when you turn down the Hoyt limbs 10 pounds?
