Do we know about the DL adjustments yet? Word on the grapevine was 1/4"... They look awesome! I would love to try out both sizes, just need to figure out if 39 ATA is too much for 3D outdoor etc... I don't shoot much spot, but love being outside and stretching distances from 20-100 yards...

The 39 would be fine for outdoor shoots. Why do you think the 39 ATA is too much for 3D / outdoor?

I have a Bowtech Fanatic 3.0 LD set up for outdoor target matches. It is more accurate than I am. I have not even shot a Reckoning 38. I don't know if I could justify the cost of a Generation 2 when the Fanatic 3.0 LD shoots just fine.

I would love to see someone take the Fanatic 3.0 LD, Reckoning 38 and a Reckoning 38 Gen. 2 and shoot all 3 out of a Hooter Shooter and see if there is any difference.
Fair enough... I wasn't sure what folks leaned towards in regards to ATA on bows for outdoor i.e. shorter bows could be less surface area for wind to grab (possibly less stability?)… I certainly know you could use what ever bow size you want in any application really and I get that is all personal preference... I would just be curious to hear opinions on here as that 39G2 looks just awesome on paper! I'm super pumped to get something longer in my hands as I think that is just more stability and with my DL of 30 3/8", the string angle will be just a lot more comfortable!

I'm also very interested to hear how they are in the hand... I'm hoping to get to my dealer today and sling some arrows with them! Has anyone weighed out the Orbit Dampners? I'd also be curious if those are really making a difference to the feel of the bow once it is fitted with a few good stabilizers

I also have to assume they don't want to put all of their plans into one release because where would they go next lol Afterall they are in the business to make money... Bows just happen to be the product HA
