I received my new Arena 30 this week :smile:. I was looking for a compact hunting bow to be used in a ground blind or a tree stand. After getting the sight ( Axcel Vision 7 Pin .19 ) and rest ( QAD Ultra HDX ) installed, I had to hit the range. All I can say is WOW! This thing is dead in the hand and quite, extremely quite. The bow also has a Truglo Tru-Tec stabilizer and Limb Saver Ultra Max split limbs. I might switch out to a Bee Stinger Pro Hunter Max stabilizer, but I'm not sure yet. The bow is the 60-70 lb model.
I only have the ability to play at 20 yards right now, but after 1/2 dozen arrows I was able to get the Axcel sighted in shooting a 1" group using my Tru-Fire HardCore Max release. I cannot wait till I can push this bow out to 60-70 yards.
Overall Impressions: I have the Arena set at 60 lbs, 27.5" draw. I personally have not noticed any vibration. There is a nice valley, and with the cable stops installed, rock solid back wall. The draw is stiff, but extremely smooth, and this thing is whisper quite. I do not have a ton of experience with a lot of other bows, and I am no way an expert archer. I have played with some PSE's and Matthews, but all I can say is that this little bow rocks!
If your looking for a compact bow, I encourage everyone to give the Arena 30 a chance, guaranteed to put a smile on your face.
