This Allegiance has been the fastest most accurate bow I shoot. I see no reason to stoop down to bashing other manufacture models... There are alot of great models out there.. But my Allegiance has been an amazing machine. Having the option of smooth and speed mods is a great feature JMO
I have a Diamond Liberty and I love the way this thing shoots. It is the nicest bow I have ever shot. I would like to get a Tribute maybe for next season, but that is just because I want a bow with sick speed. IMO Bowtech is one of the best bow companies out.
I was continuing to sight in my Tribute tonight. I have my pins set so far at 30, 40 & 50 yards. My last group at 50 yards was ~~4 inches. I am really pumped about this new Tribute! I am getting used to the grip and using my wrist strap release for hunting after using a hand held all season.
Using my 30 yard pin, I shoot ~2 inches high at 10 yards.
I had been shooting bear for about 6 years and went to my local shop after not being all that content with what i was shooting and to see what was out there and was shown a few models and wound up ordering my samson vft with 100 lb limbs and Wow, speed accuacy and such KE well after taking a few deer and seeing the new bianary cam system i had to have one and wound up buying the tomkat from a guy locally with only a few shots fired.
now i havent decided on if i should get a tribute or allegiance but i may wait for next year anyway cant say enough about the durability and qualitly of their products
I bought a tribute just over a week ago. So far I love it. I've never shot such a fast bow. Acording to my reloading scale, I'm shooting a 482 gr arrow (30" beman max-4 340 HIT insert, X-nock & 100gr wac'em head), acording to my chronograph I'm pushing it out at 290 fps... Which works out to 90.03 FPE. (http://www.archeryhq.com/kin.htm). Doing the math based on beman's claim to 11.2 grains/inch, and factoring in everything but the vanes (4") gets me to 470gr, so I think the scale is accurate. I'm not sure about the chrono, but I do know that the 4 pins on my sight are only about 1/2" apart (20-50 yards). I think that was the space between pins on my first bow, a Hoyt "Raider" from the early 90's.
im shooting an 04 extreme vft @ 61lbs. my arrow is a 5" feather fletched XX78 2315 with 100grain muzzys. its quiet and fast with this heavy arrow setup and i get nice pass throughs. id be happy hunting this setup the rest of my life and see no need to change it anytime soon.
I'd been shooting an ill-fitting 10 year old hoyt until last year. It is a solid bow, and I killed a nice bear and a couple deer with it, but it didn't fit me, and I wanted something new. I shot all the hoyts, the switchback, the allegiance and the tribute and the constitution... and ended up buying an 05 Bowtech Liberty that had been sitting on my dealer's shelf and was priced to move.
I am LOVING this bow, and continually surprise myself at how good I am getting with it. It pulls so smooth... it's fast, and it's accurate. I can't wait for deer season.
