Shot X-Force for first time!!! WOW

695 12
Just got my '07 X-Force all set up to shoot and ran a few arrows through it this morning. WOW!!!

I've NEVER shot a speed bow before so I didn't know what to expect. I was VERY, VERY surprised and pleased. This thing shoots so smoothly and quietly. Virtually no hand shock -- and SPEED... 311-312 FPS with a 336 grain arrow at 60 lbs/28"!!!!!! :mg::mg:

I don't know what people are talking about when they say these things are harsh to shoot -- the draw cycle is not bad and the performance is well worth any slight discomfort that may exist (have yet to see any).

Great

Congrats. Sounds like a real speedster!
That's great to hear as I just purchased an 08 x-force 6 off of J-Daddy and am getting it tuned and re-strung soon. I haven't shot it yet either.
This will be my first 'speed bow' also.
Done alot of research on the x-force and couldn't find hardly any negative opinions or reviews.

I will post speed and specs and equip. when I get her all rigged up. I am thinking I will be using the 27" mods but not sure just yet on the posts I will be using.

Stay tuned......

They really are good bows, and with the right strings and tuning they will smoke the listed IBO numbers. Heck my '07 I shot last year at 28.5" draw at 70lbs with an IBO arrow would do 330fps. It had John's Customs strings on it and I tuned the poop out of it...It was a flame thrower but still shot good and was quiet.

yep, this thing is SWEET. And what it makes it even better is that I got it off the AT classifieds at a great price -- bow looks almost new to me. If anyone is looking to pick up another bow, they really need to do themselves a favor and check out the AT classifieds FIRST!!! :shade:

PS - Hunlee .. lol... wow, don't know what to say exactly to all that. I am interested in going down to about a 300 grain total arrow weight -- what could you hook me up with?!
