    So far mine is 6" lately. I can shoot them as accurately as others so the speed and KE is a extra bonus.

    My primary hunting bow for 2012 is my 02 Darton Maverick RC its BH is 6-5/8". I can shoot it at least as well as my PSE XLR 900 that has a inch longer BH. Had not shot the Mav for something like 6-7 years. Picked it up checked its tune, cam timing, string loop, kisser buttons and witness marks on the Muzzy ZE rest nothing had changed. Was utterly amaized how well I was able to shoot ot from the very first day of shooting. Forgot how smoooooooooth that CPS cam system draws and how quiet that bow is.

    Now i am trying to find a Darton Tundra to buy as I feel it has all the good points of the Mav but with an extra inch of BH and a little longer ATA.
