I have had an STL since Febuary and love it. Very forgiving bow, very smooth, and very quiet. I think it will be great for hunting. I am getting 260 fps shooting CF 300's at 68 lbs and 27" draw. With a Trophy Taker rest on it, my broadheads are flying like darts and hitting exactly with my field points at 30 yds. I'll second the opinion that is the best from PSE this year.
