Agreed. That bow is a tack driver. Perfect specs and with that reflex riser, it holds on target like a rock. It literally is what everyone is asking for I that length ATA. Not to mention, it has a sliding draw stop. This is great for fine tuning letoff and DL. The other models use set post settings instead. I don't get it either

Same here!!! I was hoping for 350+, if not I’ll be purchasing a new SR6.
I haven't ruled that out yet. I'm a 30" draw and shot the SR6. The hump didn't really bother me, but it felt shorter than 30 to me. I held off thinking they would have a similar bow come out with the deadlock. I hope I'm not disappointed.

I think people want the bow to remain deflexed at 34 inches so bump the brace to whatever to keep that geometry....and call it a hunting bow and charge a hunting bow price.
Microsoft Word - Reflex or Deflex.doc (merlin-bows.co.uk)

This is how NOT to design a bow for accuracy X37 - Xpedition Archery

Open to PM's for a nice used camo 50-60 Reckoning 35😁
I'll save your info on my reckoning, asat camo black limbs. Custom dip tho. But don't forget the flex guard issues with bowtechs. My reckoning is at shop waiting for a new one right now.

I hope you are wrong on the X37 and accuracy tho as I have one on order lol

Think about ....when have you ever seen a 37.5 bow with a 7.5 brace that was reflexed? Why on earth would they do that?!?!?! Compare it to old Bowtech Specialist that was 37.7 and 7.5 and IBO of 330 and was scary accurate because your hand was in front of the pivot and it had plenty of brace and was not slow at all.

i think if you drop the ATA on the reckoning you kind of defeat the purpose of it. the only way to do it would be to add some reflex and sweep the limb angle to keep the brace or sweep the limb and grow the brace...either way your robbing peter to pay paul.

the solution is what we've seen, longer risers with paralell limbs, but then a 34" parallel limb bow starts to get real heavy with all that riser and all those cut outs get expensive and were right back to square one...guys already dont wanna pay $1300, they certainly dont wanna pay $1500...

if you look at the TRX 34 you see its basically a realmX with another inchor two of riser give or take, probably a little more sweep with those shorter limbs. then you get into deflection and how the hold ends up feeling...alot of things going on at that point.

i think the only way Bowtech could do it would be a longer X platform and shorter limbs. you could get a 340 IBO, but diminishing returns as that bow gets longer. thats why the CPXL was kind of an anomaly, but they just couldnt have sold as many as we think if they basically made it into a long draw special with the MagX.

maybe they come up with a lower letoff speed cam for the reckoning platform.

I'm trying to think about it but I never owned a 37+ bow just some 36.5 that was the same build at the X37 and I shot that 6" brace height bow awesome to bad it sounded like a shot gun going off at the shot lol

You are right mostly.... The Specialist was light and graceful and actually felt ( and looked ) like a bow should feel---more recurve like and less like a steel pipe, but it was louder and had some hand shock without the parallel limbs and long heavy riser. I still hunted with it for 6-7 years. I told the kid I sold it to I wanted to buy it back as I prefer it to my Revolt X I was really hoping they could do a 34 and 7 and do the cam with two draw length ranges so shorter draws got some speed.

The new Specialist II is a POS

I almost bought an original BT Mag just based off the specs. Never could find one to shoot. I liked the older grip that bow had with the sideplates. I'm not real clear what was different about the BTMag from the CPXL Didn't the CPXL have some kind of balance point mid bow where the grip was that Bowtech stopped hyping? Also at my 28 draw the BTMag was not ideal I think as the cam was like 28 to 31?

My 2006 Elite E-500 was 34 and 7 and 337 I think it was basically a Bowtech Allegiance with Barnsdale limbs and a horrible KS banana grip. The same kid bought that one off me too. He still has both and has killed some big bucks with both and hence said he would "think about" selling me back the Specialist.

I’m looking forward to the specs on the ss.

I shoot a lower weight due to injury so I ordered the regular solution at 50 lbs. I wanted to start with a higher IBO.

I’m interested to see the speed difference between the two. The SS could be a big hit if it’s close to the Solution in regards to speed.

6" brace, 346 IBO for the Solution. That's a fact.

3 fps faster than the V3 and Elite Enkore when shot through the crono today.

The Solution SS is kinda pointless imo.

SS ATA? All you have to say is longer or shorter than the RX?

I think you're confusing the BT Mag X with the BT Mag
The BT Mag has a draw length from 26 1/2" to 30"
