Let's just say I was going to buy a DXT until I shot the Saber. Talk about a sweet little bow. A buddy bought one and brought it over. We shot it off and on for a few months and I had to have one.
The dang thing is way easy to draw, you can hold it back all day long even set to 70 lbs. If your standing 5 to 10 feet away it sounds like someone flipped a rubber band, darn quite.
It has plenty of power to kill deer, been there done that already.
We bought our bows about 3 months apart. My bow cam with a different riser and appears to be the 09 style but I don't know that for sure. He shoots his bow set to 65 lbs and I have mine cranked up to full down and backed off 1/4 turn...70lbs??? never measured it. His is a little more quite but not by much. Mine came with all the modules and a draw stop which I love. His a black string, mine yellow and green Martin colors. Both had bow jacks and now bow have Limbsavers.
The bow can be shot without a sling open handed. It is the deadest bow I've ever shot. Love the grip and would hate to use any other style now.
I think the IBO is 310 fps, but the new ones may be 320 fps. I have not checked the speed with the arrow I shoot. Based on how it has performed on deer so far I doubt I ever check it. No need.
After shooting my bow for 3 days I was shooting the Saber better than any bow I've ever owned. I can't believe the groups sizes I'm getting at 40 yards.
Buy one they only cost $289.00, heck buy two.
