I agree it is a fantastic shooter and is definitely in my arsenal... It will all depend on what mood I'm in but I'm thinking I'll give first blood to my 2010 Carbon Matrix as it is my oldest and most trusted friend and the bow I learned to shoot on. My Specialist however may make its way into the field due to its great long distance capability. Under 50 yds it is a toss-up but over 50 I give the edge to my Specialist.

What kinda speed are you all getting? I would guess that I'm getting in the high 280's with a 381grn arrow at 29/60 draw.

Not me. There's a D350 for that! My specialists will stay set up for 3d and spots.

As for speed: 29.5" 59# 400 gr @ 282 on one of them. The other isn't running really yet but I slung a 455 gr arrow @ 70# @ 286 through it while settling the strings, setting timing and lean the other day.

My 350 is shooting a 360 gr. Vic HV300 @ 342 @ 70#! Smokin'!!!

Ditto on the D350 for hunting, although the Specialist is more than capable! My Specialist will now get tuned for indoor, 500 grains of slowness!

i do have my specialist setup to hunt with if i need to until spot season is back going but i will be hunting most of the time with my d340. if i kill one early with the 340 i will have to take the specialist out to kill one though, because as good as that thing shoots it deserves a chance in the stand. its one awesome shooting bow.

I'm on under my hubby's name right now because he is receiving treatment for cancer right now and we just have his computer available and I don't want to mess with his settings. If he starts feeling better the plan is for him to show me how to hunt and I plan on using my specialist. For people who like a do it all bow, I think this is it!

The specialist is the only hunting bow bowtech makes.LOL. I like tame accuracy. Speed used to kill then god invented lasers.
