Really want Ross XD. What are they like?
I'm currently shooting a Bear Outbreak bought from Hoddywell Archery in West Australia. But I'm also thinking of getting a Ross XD, just want to know what are they like to shoot?

I am shooting the XD and I must say I really love it.
Ross did a great job designing a perfect (and affordable!) hunting bow.
I hunt antelope from a blind and whitetail and turkey in thick brush but I also hunt elk and bear in the backcountry on multi day backpacking hunts and this one bow handles all of these hunts because it has a short ATA but not too short as I can still shoot out to 70 yards. Plus it is light weight for my long hunts and hikes.
As far as how it shoots. I love the back wall. When you come to full draw there is a comfortable but rock solid back wall.
It also comes loaded with limbsaver shocks mounted all over so you only need to add your stabilizer for a smooth shooting bow.
My setup is the Ross XD teamed up with a Trophy Ridge Pursuit slider sight. Whicker Biscuit rest. Shooting 340 Gold Tip XT hunter arrows with 125 grain heads and another 50 grains stacked behind the insert. So my arrows weigh about 490 grains and the XD is launching them about 278fps.
I hope this helps!

It's a great hunting bow, short and light weight. Also good enough for competition.
