    They're a good bow, but I wouldn't say the best. With todays bows being as good as they are they are closer in performance for energy expended drawing them than some would let on. I can shoot my LX accurately many more times than I can the Black Knight, it just takes more to draw it. I'm experienced (read old) enough to realize that pure speed isn't always a good thing.

    I agree, speed is nothing if you cant hit what you are aiming at

    You can't go wrong with a BowTech. You might look at the Pro 40 Dullay. I am shooting 68 pounds with 29 inch draw with 2613 with 100 grain points at 280 feet per sec. The arrow weight is 448 grains. now thats awesome. Plus you still have a 7 plus inch brace height with a 38 inch axle to axle.

    Not any faster than any other 2 cam bow? What other 2 cam bow?

    The bowtech guys had "custom" black knight at the ATA show shooting 358fps w/ "high" let off and 362fps w/ "low" letoff (heard later they got it up to 360 and 365). This was w/ a 350gr arrow, 67# , and 28 3/4" draw. Also heard they shot it w/ a goldtip 5575 w/o a point (300gr) and it went 390fps.

    I switched last year to the 2003 black knight 2. I have shot and owned several well know brand name bows and I can tell you that the BowTech is hands down the best bow I have ever owned or shot. I have mine set at 63# shoot ing a 380 grain arrow @327 fps. (31 " draw). Not only is it fast, it is acurate and with the long riser extremely easy to hold steady. Compared to a Mathews it does seem quite stiff to draw, but the power has to come from somewhere. I would clasify it as stiff, but smooth. Nice wall and hand shock is non existant.

    OhioBowhunter, what's your draw length, and what are you intending to do with a BKII? Unless you have a short draw, an 04 with 5 3/4" brace is going to be touchy to form errors. They are very accurate and pretty quiet considering the big speed. Recoil and vibration are not bad either.

    One quick correction, the draw weight on those final #'s was 69.7lbs and the draw was 29 1/4", but the speeds are correct.

    Norb Mullaney came by and measured everything himself . He was very impressed, as was everyone who saw it.


    There is not another 2 cam bow or any bow for that matter that can come close to it in IBO speed. Of course it is up to you to decide how important that it is. Speed is ultimatley not that important ( I can't belive I just typed that), but is sure is FUN!

    So by virtue of the transitive property, the Black Knight is the most fun bow out there.
    I love the smell of dentin in the morning.

    As I said before, the BKII can shoot anything from 3-d to spots to hunting. Funny, I happen to shoot a 29" draw and I don't seem to have that problem with it being "touchy." What attracted me to the bow was the hard wall, the long riser, and last but certaintly not least I can shoot 350 linejammers and get 285. Alot of the time guys get to wrapped up in the axle to axle and brace height. You seem to be overlooking the fact that this bow was designed by the MASTER!

    I have a 02 and an 03. My 02 I have had it up to 348 fps at 29" draw and 63#. At 5 gpp 5.5 brace height. I hunted with it as well as shot 3-D and dots with it in the same day. My 03 blk knight shoots 337 fps at 30" draw and 60# 6.5 brace height The bow is a lot more forgiving than people think because of the low brace hieght but if your form is good no problems but if it is not so good Id suggest the pro 40 dual. From Bowtech they have told me that is is the best dual cam they have put out yet. My 04 Pro Forty is on the way and look forward to shooting it. will let ya know how well it is.

    WHILE YOU'RE LOOKING AT PRO 40 YOU MIGHT AS WELL SHOOT THE PATRIOT DUALLY.A LITTLE SHORTER FOR HUNTING BUT STILL
    GOOD SOLID WALL,HIGH SPEEDS,MORE FORGIVING.

    And a PURPLE Black Knight is like having a custom dragster in your hands...it is not only pretty but fast. Mine is not super fast because it is a 50 lb pull BUT while everyone is sweating pulling back 70 lb bows, I can stand there for quite a while to get the shot right (not that the arrow always goes where I want). Lighter pull weight, faster arrow because....I don't know, I guess you just feel everything working together. I love that distinctive sound of two cams rolling together. You can't get that feeling with a single cam.
