I have one that I've hunted with for the past 3 years. It recently got demoted to backup duty when I bought a new bow, but, for the money, the instinct is hard to beat. I've killed plenty of deer and hogs with it the past few years. Very good hunting bow.
I've owned my instinct since the year they came out & the only problem I had with it was that I couldnt stand the crappy stock string it came with.
IMO the viberation is very low if not next to none, not noisey, smooth draw, though its a tad on the heavy side (bare bow is 4.1 lbs)
the IBO for them are 305.
overall its a very good bow, just like Joker I'm buying a new bow so the instinct will be my backup bow now.
