Just curious on what you guys would do. From what I understand performance would give you an 8-10 FPS increase over comfort, so let’s just say 10fps and every # increase of draw weight is roughly 2#. Would you shoot 52# on performance or 57# on comfort? In theory FPS would be the same

I shoot my realm x on comfort @50 and 29in. The chronograph i used showed consistent 6fps difference. Amazing draw cycle on comfort and with the addition of lucky stops and the high wrist grip its quickly becoming my favorite whitetail bow

Having a Carbon Icon, I tried the comfort setting first, how it came.
With my 55lbs and 27,5" draw, I could use a bit more speed, and tried performance setting.
And to honest, not much difference in draw cycle. It just stays a bit longer on max. draw weight before dropping down.
The valley seem equally long and comfortable, so I left it on performance.

Comfort at 70lbs for me is a beautiful thing! Didn't like how it let down in Performance. About ripped my arm off!

i'm running a reign 6 with a 27.5 DL. As for which i shoot better, I need to experiment as my form has changed as with my DL. I got some lucky stops and will be testing them out. Just trying to figure things out and see where i should start. currently sitting on 54# at 27.5 on comfort.

Can you explain Lucky Stops and what they did for you Realm X? I have a Revolt X but I assume they would do the same. I just don't get what they offer.

I hope that I can explain this properly..
When I switched to the comfort setting, to me the back wall felt slightly softer than in performance but the draw cycle felt amazing. I ordered the lucky stops based on suggestions to firm up the backwall .
Maybe I'm in between draw lengths, but when I installed the lucky stops and got them set properly my x felt like a totally different bow.
I hold better. Back wall is better and I feel like I shoot better, more consistent groups .

Do you feel like the back wall is jarring? I don't like that feeling when I come back on some bows and it hits so hard. Not sure why people talk about back walls so much as if the harder the better. I've been shooting compounds since the Bear Whitetail so about anything to me feels great compared to the half inch play that we had back in the day.

So the main purpose of the LS is to firm up the back wall and take out any play? But the do something else that's hard to define.....but it's a good thing.

I shoot my revolt x on comfort at 58 lbs and 30 inch draw. it feels great on my shoulders which are shot after years of training for endurance sports. I will switch to performance if i go on a moose or elk hunt, otherwise stay on comfort. btw I shot 2 deer this year, one was a complete pass thru and stuck in the ground several inches, one I hit to far back and drove a 31 inch shaft up to 2 inches left out of deer. All on comfort.

I don't care how fast a bow shoots, if it's not as smooth comfortable draw and comfortable at anchor You're simply not going to shoot it as well.

With today's modern bows you can be 50 ft per second slow and still be quite effective.

Remember, the Speed and Performance is relative. Go pick up a bow that was made in the 80s and shoot it. Plenty of game killed a very high scores.

My SR6 on comfort is a dream to shoot - on performance - a nightmare !

I shoot RealmX with performance but I have lucky-stops in it for bit more valley.
Smooth enough for me
