You like Chodes? Hmmm. I spent some time with this bow today, the chode does make it better “lessons vibration” but it’s ugly as hell & bow heavy. People gave Mathews crap for them being boat anchors, this is heavier than my vxr 31.5. I don’t see anybody shooting this bow and thinking that 2” nub is sufficient as a stabilizer “that part is a marketing gimmick”.The “chode” stab mount and picatinny sight mounts are the only thing exciting about this bow to me. Those two innovations make sense in theory and has the possibility of moving bow improvement forward.
like others, I’m real disappointed in the shims & cams. Eww.
That's odd, I thought the Axius Ultra I shot all last summer for 3D was VERY smooth and easy to draw. It was a #2 cam and I really liked that bow.If the hushin video is any indication of the draw cycle, it’s not good. You can tell it looks like a very stiff front end on that draw cycle and not very smooth. You could see it being a little jumpy throughout the cycle as well. Not looking good
I had an axius ultra and my bow was super stiff. I think I was in the minority with how mine felt apparently, but I didn’t like it. It was very stiff up front and felt 10# heavier than actual draw weight. My xpedite nxt is way smoother and easier to draw than the axius ultra. I can only imagine a 30” now and how it will stack hard up front
Agree on Bowtech, I saw two of them today not enough change for me to even considerThat's odd, I thought the Axius Ultra I shot all last summer for 3D was VERY smooth and easy to draw. It was a the #2 cam and I really liked that bow.
I like a bow that stacks early and transitions into the valley smoother. Like the Evolve cams or Elite Tri Track cams. I felt the Axius Ultra was close to those two. Not quite as smooth of a transition but not bad at all.
Can't wait to try the new Ventum tomorrow. I got to handle the New Bowtechs today and was not impressed at all.
At the shop right now. Tech is setting up a Ventum 33 and a Elite Enkore for me as we speak. Both will be at 29/70.There was a period of time where I shot Hoyt exclusively. Haven't been interested in their stuff in years - just hasn't measured up. This lineup does look interesting though. The Ventum 33 has a lot going for it - will be interested to learn more and maybe get a chance to shoot it.
They have the audacity to call their bows lightweight:Apparently without. There's a post that shows the RX5 weighs over 5# with a chubby.
