New here and my first post. Also new to archery. After being a big AR, Pistol, and Shotgun guy shooting is getting far too expensive. So I decided to get into archery, 3D, Target...possibly hunting. So over the past few weeks I have been getting behind the grip of quite a few bows.
I start with a very beginner yet nice BPS Kronik. Surprisingly smooth and compact. This is an excellent bow for the money the back wall is decent and it only lacks the FPS...303 30" draw 70#. It is actually made pretty well. A bow that Diamond makes for Bass pro. I also shot the Bear charge, it wasnt very smooth and the quality was below average but it is priced right but in the same price range of the kronik, I felt the kronik is a much better bow overall. The bear had far more vibration to it as well compared to the kronik. Bear from when I was much younger has slide. I shot a Fugitive next to the Charge. The fugitive is fast, nicely balanced yet because it has a single cam it has a huge hump pulling towards the back wall. I do like the left off on the Fugitive. Single Cams seems to do the left off better then a parallel but the pars are far smoother throughout the entire draw. The fugitive was quite nice and very fast. There was very little vibration and the draw was still smooth considering the single cam hump. I shot it extremely well and the bow felt good in the hand.
My latest trip had me shot an Diamond Outlaw side by side to an Bowtech Assassin. Both constructed well, finish is identical (InVelvet on both), Accessories also similar. Strings are better on the Bowtech the draw is smoother throughout but there was creep and the left off isnt 80% as the Diamond is. The Diamond has some very small vibration...it is very light but is noticable after you shot the Assassin. I put about 50 arrows thru both. 27" draw and 53#. I really liked the leftoff on the Diamond far better, I can hold it longer (not that it is heavy but still, I believe this would lead to a better more accurate shot). Speed is so similar but the Outlaw did fell faster. I did not gauge the speed although I would like to. There is 100 dollar difference between the 2. I like the low to no vibration and smooth draw of the Assassin and love the left off on the Outlaw. I am stuck...both felt good in the hand. Can I get over the tight creep and left off of the Assassin? Let me know your take. Thanks
