Absolutely satisfied!!!!!!!!!!

649 5
Just thought I would share with everyone that for the first time in about 3 years Im 100% Satisfied with my hunting set up. I know the past two-three years Ive been shooting alot faster bow but this year I slowed it down a bit and I have to say that SPEED isnt everything. Im shooting this Trykon XL at 29" 62 lbs with my GT 55/75 and 100 Gr Montecs at 269 fps. And Ill tell you what Ill trade my 300fps hunting bow to this one any day just so i can keep the fixed blade broadheads. After I got my bow tuned and sighted in dead on from 20-50 yards I started shooting my broadheads and never touched my sights. WOW i was very happy with that since the last couple of years Ive been shooting expandables succesfully but EVERY time I release my arrow Ive had doubts on them. So Now when i release I all I have to think about is where hes running!!!

speed isnt every thing,people forget in many ways it magnifies your mistakes.i found that shootin around 270-280 fps works best for me.

No Kidding. Im excited to get in the woods tommorow. Im not at all disapointed in the way the mechanicals performed, but its just that confidence that I was lacking. The best part is that at 50 yards im grouping in about a 3.5 inch group of 6 arrows with broadheads. Those montecs really fly well. This is the first year I will use them. I hope they kill as good as they shoot!!

Everybody gets caught up on the speed, and I hate to say it but I love it when I shoot with somebody that is shooting 300+ and they will miss a target and I just have to laugh to myself thinking the only thing that speed got you was a miss quicker. :wink:

I believe that with the speed you really take a big trade off for the forgiveness of the bow.
