Now that BT, Hoyt, and Mathews have all released their 2021s, I am not completely sold on any of them. They all have great features - Dead Lock for BT, Hoyt’s new cam and lower stabilizer, and Mathew’s switch weight. I am a short draw and felt that the Solution was not a significant performance upgrade over my Reign 6. I think I’ll keep my Reign 6 for another year. I was really hoping to see the SR6 cam with their new deadlock system.I got to shoot the Solution today. It was setup at 29" draw and 70lbs. I tried it first on performance and it was not a pleasant experience. Very stiff draw which to me felt much higher than 70lbs. It was stiff through the entire draw cycle although it was more linear than the RevoltX I shot in performance. The revoltX was smoother but had a big hump before dropping in the valley. The let down was also very abrupt. You have to push it forward to get it to let down but when it goes it wants to tear your shoulder off. It was much more violent than any other bow I've tried and would be very hard to let down in a controlled manner without a lot of extra movement.
We switched it to comfort and it was much better although I still wasn't overly impressed. It felt more similar to the RevoltX in performance just not quite as smooth but not as big of a hump which was nice. The let down improved significantly also and had a much more manageable cycle. I'd say between it and the RevoltX I'd still take the RevoltX.
I've been waiting to try this bow before deciding but after shooting it I ended up ordering a Prime Nexus 4 which has been at the top of my list since trying it.
