    It wouldn't be opinion, it would be facts.

    I had an Omen UF back in 2009. For as fast as it was it was equally awful to shoot.

    The Omen Pro is supposed to be a great shooter but the speed of the Omen has stayed constant since its release. Hard to believe no one has beat it yet.

    368.....really......bow had to have been cranked past 70#'s, had over a 30 inch draw length, and shooting a feather lite speed arrow. There is no bow besides a cross bow that shoots 368 with a hunting set up. Oh, how do I know you ask..... I have worked at a archery shop for 8 years now..seen every bow ever made shoot through a chrono from 2004-2012.

    Every bow ever made? Thats pretty far fetched wouldn't you think? So your telling me your shop carry's approximately 20 bow companies? Please gimmie a break.. oh and in case you didn't know and I'm sure you did cause you work at a shop right? Ibo is 70# 30" draw and 350gr arrow why wouldn't you be able to hunt with that arrow

    I shot an omen two nights ago and I definitely wouldn't classify it as awful. I will say the draw cycle was rough but on the shot I thought it really shined.

    You probably didn't shoot an Omen UF, the Omen Pro is supposed to be much better!

    Not really. The MR5 is UP TO 360 and the Omen Pro is 366. The whole Mathews line runs around a quarter to a half-inch long on draw length and it has a 5" brace height whereas the Omen Pro is 5.5". They are trying to catch up to the Omen Pro, but still behind.

    I'd say PSE Omen Pro as well. I also say PSE is holding out more speed once it gets challenged. There is let off and draw length adjustments to get more speed out of the existing bow.

    Pse Omen pro hands down is the fastest bow to date. I do think pse is fiddling around with some speed/ hunting arrow. I shoot a 26.5 inch draw with a 330 grain arrow. My draw is still climbing so should start getting above the 300's for sure with the evo. And why can't you hunt with a 350 grain arrow, the arrows are tough and am sure they can go through a deer or and elk fine.

    Not disputing the king of speed. All I'm saying is 6 fps ibo speed is close without a doubt. Was just throwing it out there. That's all.

    Also from my take, anytime you talk speed your not talking all smooth either. Face it ,the energy has to come from and go to some place in a hurry .No one said anything about doin it smoothly.

    I have a 2006 Elite E-500 with 2007 Elite Synergy cams, 29" draw, 70lb limbs yesterday shot 333,332,332 with a 352 grain arrow through a Prochrono, new batteries on a overcast day and no sheilds. Shot a couple other bows through it and it was not measuring incorrectly fast. That is with a 7 1/4" brace, no speed nocks yet and smooth mods. My Elite Envy is getting in the low 300s with a 470gr FMJ and a 7" brace. All this with loaded string, d loop, meta peep. I calculate that the Envy would be getting in the 340s with IBO arrow.

    Just saying don't forget the older bows.

    My evo is the smoothest bow i have shot and it rated from 337-345 and it is super smooth. I have heard alot about the omen pro that it is smooth too.

    who cares. speed is the LEAST important thing there is, when i look at the qualities on a bow. having a fast bow is great, but as fast as the bows are today(even the 'slow' bows of today are really fast) it is the last thing i look at. quality, accuracy, quietness, holding pattern, draw cycle...ect, are WAY more important than speed. what difference does it make, if your arrow is going mach six, if you cant hit what your aiming at.

    wrong, i also saw a high country chrono at 355 back in 05 i believe, dont know what arrow he was shooting or the poundage, but he had a 32in. draw, by the way i didnt say the omen was a hunting set up

    Could not agree with you more. I have a Bowtech Destroyer. Dialed in about 58#. 28 DL. Shooting about a 356Gr arrow. I might be getting about 310fps. Guess what? My last deer didnt ask how fast the arrow was moving when he ran 15 yards after he was shot.
