I am an old phart (60) and shot several bows before I made the choice. The Primal is the best bow I have ever shot or owned. Not to say that the Z7, Bengal, Black Ice, BowTech, Hoytt are bows I would not buy, I am not as young as I usta be and wanted fast, quiet, easy to shoot, good looking, accurate, and the primal in the 40-50 fit the bill. When I first shot it I could not believe that I shot as it was deadly quiet and fast as well as accurate. This was out of box and fine tuning is in process. I am shooting Beman ICS Hunter 8 gpi. Any better suggestions? The reviews are right and I can see why others guys are turning to this bow.
