smooth. all my shots are 20 and under so speed don't matter much.I do shot short brace speed bows but I search out the smoothest draw. then shoot a heavy arrow at about 50 pounds.
smooth quiet and plenty of power. Posted via Mobile Device
I'm not really posative, but I think the smoother the draw the less agressive the cam, so the smoother bow would be my choice because of the accuracy. I mean if your talking comparing two bows that are the same except for speed and smoothness? Same riser, limbs, D/L, D/W, but different cam.
Smoothness wins every time. If you want more speed, crank up the pounds. Don't get some bow with a harsh stiff draw cycle so you can say it "shoots faster" with the same peak draw weight. All your doing is shooting more effective pounds and losing that nice smooth feel. Who wants a big build-up of poundage at the back of the draw cycle where you're the weakest?
Smooth, easy to naturally draw wins, except under IBO rules. Smoother is really faster because you can handle more than enough weight to out-speed a speed bow.
