I've been waiting to shoot this bow since I first saw it advertised, and I finally got my chance today. My buddy ordered one about two weeks ago and it showed up Friday. He is out of town fishing for the weekend so I told him I'd take it and set it up for him haha. Well, I slapped a biscuit on just for a few shots.
Here are some things I noticed right away.
1- Bow is very top heavy. I had a Reezen which many people thought were top heavy, and this was definitely more so.
2- Cheap plastic grip
3- Very lightweight
4- Great fit and finish
5- All black looks SWEET on these
Before shooting a gave the string a little pluck and thought, man I bet this is gonna be noisy. Sure enough, with a 445 gr hunting arrow which I shoot out of my z7 it was a pretty noisy bow. My wife even said, did you shoot *****'s new bow? I could hear it all the way upstairs.
The bow also had some hand vibe, not terrible and it was to be expected after shooting the Outlaw and Fugitive. With some limbsavers, a good stabilizer and some cat whiskers I think it could be tamed some.
I back it off 2 1/2 turns, didnt have a scale handy but I imagine I was pulling ~63-64 pounds. Back wall is solid as a rock which I really liked. I feel like this bow, once all set up, would hold on target extremely well. With as aggressive as the new Throttle cam is, it wasn't a harsh pulling bow.
I wasn't blown away with the speed. Granted I did not have a chrono, but I shoot many different bows each week at work at the same yardage so I like to think I'm a pretty good judge between bows. It definitely spit them out there, but nothing to write home about.
I only shot it about 30 times, but that was enough to make hesitant of ordering one for myself. I was a little disappointed.
Just my opinions, shoot it for yourself and see. If you have, I'd love to hear what you think on it as well!
