Im wanting to buy a really fast bow. But i shoot a Z28 with an 8 inch brace that garners NO arm slap whatsoever. Am i going to regret buying a bow that has a 6 inch BH? Do you really get alot of arm slap off it? And how do you control it?

If you grip the bow correctly and have good form, arm slap isn't an issue.. And a string supressor doesn't hurt... I have hunted with a X 6 for the last 2 years with no problems whatsoever with armslap even with heavy clothing..

You will be ok with the arm slap. It is not a big issue, the only time I ever come close to my arm is if I'm getting tired and let my concentration slip on my follow through. The bow quickly lets me know that I'm messing up!

Like everyone else said as long as your form / grip is good and your draw length it right it's not an issue. I do put a STS on them but I've shot them alot without one and had no problems. I never have problems with slap on my X-Forces I've owned.

I own an 82nd airborne and have NEVER had any arm slap not even one time, also have found it to be extreemly "shootable" bow. The only negative I have found is the harsh draw cycle and I have found it a little sensitive to followthrough... or lack there of

open hand

open your hand and rest it on your thumb, that way it is form safe
