I've had this bow now for a little over a week and have been shooting it daily. Most of my observations/comparisons on this bow are based off my 08 Allegiance. The Speed Pro is currently set at 29" 70#. I ran it through the chrono shooting a 360 grain arrow w/ peep, silencers, and loop/nock and got an average speed of 351 fps!! My allegiance at the same specs is getting an average of 304 fps.
After shooting it a week or so I've had time to get a feel for it, at first the draw was fairly tough at 70# compared to my Allegiance, after about 20 or so shots I was pretty used to it and it felt pretty good. Some other things I noticed was that this bow has a ROCK SOLID wall, absolutely no give. It was also dead in the hand, I'm talking notably less vibration then my allegiance. It was also surprisingly quiet, I was expecting a lot more noise from this "speed" bow but was shocked when it made no more noise then my allegiance did. Lastly one big thing it had over the Allegiance is weight, its weighing in about a pound lighter then the allegiance fully rigged out with similar accessories.
The finish on this bow is immaculate, not a single flaw that I could find. The cutouts on the riser make it very neat looking and super light as mentioned above. The wood handle is also a nice touch, its super slim but fits nicely in the hand. The barnsdale limbs are also a HUGE plus in my opinion.
Over all I am incredibly impressed with the Speed Pro. I think HCA might be on the right track with these 09 bows, this ones got it all in my honest opinion. For those of you considering an 09 definitely consider HCA, don't let their past reputation fool you, they've got some sweet shooting bows!
Now for the pictures....... :wink:
