    M405 seems to have no negatives compared to the M380 except cocking ease. Accuracy is equal. I think the 405 is somewhat faster than the 25'/sec difference. I prefer the M405 for hunting. 396g arrow,...

    However

    I've killed 11 deer with these. 6DRT and 5<30 yds travel. If you get a good hit, they go right down. If you get a bad hit, they go down soon. I've yet to have such an entrance hole as that.

    Iron Duke,
    What has happened to STs? They were made in Jonesboro, AR(50 mi from me), but now I understand they are in NY. I have 2-3 year old Xbow Tricks(8) which all spin perfectly. No longer?

    The new string/cables is longer, not shorter. The speed difference in my 2011 SZ 380 vs 2013 SZ 380 was 15'/sec.
    I expect the newest limbs to be significantly better.
