The m6 is a touch slower and different draw cycle than the Defcon 6. Still a great shooting bow.

The Defcon M7 is as fast as the Halon 6 so there has to be a notable diff in favor of the Defcon.

My brother said the Defcon m6 was only 3 or 4 fps faster, both bows were set at 28" and 70# with a 350 grain arrow. His Defcon m6 is coming in 10 fps slower than advertised. They are supposed to get a BTX tomorrow so we'll see how it compares.

I will add both bows were strait out of the box with no tuning.

I actually liked both bows in different ways. I like limb stops so the Defcon was better in that way for me. The grip goes to Defcon, I hated the angle of the Halon it was almost straight up and down. They both were very dead on the shot and maybe I would give a slight edge to the Halon. They are both very smooth for how fast they are but have different cycles. The Halon was stiff at the beginning and gradually got easier until you hit the wall. The Defcon started easier hit peek weight later and held weight later in the cycle but still transitioned into the valley nicely. If I had to pick one it would be the Defcon because of the wall and a little better string angle. I also shot the Impulse 34 and didn't care for it at all. Didn't like how it was stiff at the end then dropped pretty hard into the wall.

Your description of the Halon and Defcon is identical to my thoughts. Both are great but they are different from each other.

Little different result than the other.2-3 fps verses 11fps
Wonder why the difference. Sounds like the defcon overall a little better
