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