The reviews on the Obsession Lethal Force have been very positive. In fact I am ordering one.

It is clear the the Obsession LF is fast. It is still early but I was wondering if you think it will live up to its bold claim:

It's too early to tell. Your poll is being based off of guess work.

Looks just like my Darton DS3800.

But then, I have to admit I'm impressed with what I see from them. I wish they had a dealer in upstate NY. There is one listed on their website (about a 3 hour drive away) and when I called they don't even have one in stock. I'm dying to take the SS for a test drive.

My guess is that it won't exceed 342-343 fps. Obviously, that's still fast.

Like Fletched said this is all off guess work. I think it'll be right around the ibo which may include a few fps under. I still like it enough to more than likely be ordering one.

Yes if you mean it has a riser and some limbs.

The SS was last years model, you should be able to find those easily.

That design and cams look awfully familiar! Let's see; Elite, Athens, Strothers, K&K, and the list goes on. They all are great shooting bows. I haven't shot the Obsession line but at the ATA, you would swear many of these were the same.

I would like to see how it stands up the the 2007 Elite Envy. I know for a fact that this 7" brace bow will shoot in the low to mid 340s with a loaded string. No one brass nock for the arrow and arrow without vanes (the way manufactures test for speed) BS, real life set up, d loop, speed nocks and peep shooting a real life arrow with vanes. If it will shoot as fast as the Envy it will sell like hotcakes.

The Obsession bow has similar specs, Envy is 33 1/2 ata, Obsession is 33 ata, both have 7" brace, 56 1/2 string and 37 15/16 cables for the Envy and 55 7/8 and 37 3/16 for the Obsession and both weigh 3.9lbs. It comes down to the cams in my opinion. Time will tell.

Yeah with the split limbs. I would say actual IBO speed for most of these similar spec models will be within a few fps...can't go wrong with many bows nowadays.

This model has the potential to be the best KS bow ever. A KandK bow that has a better, more tunable CAM system. This bow is going to be sweet.

Like I stated in an other thread, Ill have this bow in a week or so and will do a speed test after it has been professionaly tuned, Ill shoot it at 28", 61lbs with a 306 gr arrow, that what im setting it at for 3D, you guys can do the math for longer draw lengths and higher draw weights. Completepassthru did a speed test in the other thread, the oly thing lacking was a good tune job from those tests, it will have a meta peep and string loop, watch for it. Im thinking Ill be right around 315-320 with this set up.
