IBO Rating:up to 353 fps, Axle-to-Axle:33.5", Brace Height:6" , Draw Weight:40 - 80lbs, Bow Weight:4.4 lbs, Let-off:80%, Draw Lengths:25" - 30" , Half Sizes:25.5" - 29.5
My impression after shooting the demo bow at 60# I knew this did not draw back as other dual cam bows I have shot before. The draw force curve on this bow for me starts off steep and smooth getting into some weight of the draw quickly. It then peaks and stays flattens smoothly out at the weight till the dual cams roll over and it drops fast into the valley or let off till you hit a most definite wall. The wall is solid with very little give to it. I found if you give any into it even just a little bit at full draw the bow will pull you into a let-down. You will soon learn not to relax at full draw with this bow and I find that to be a good thing. The feeling of the shot in my hands was not uncomfortable and it didn't jump. The bow seems real steady.
I was sold on it like I have been with the solo cam technology of Mathews. I put down my money to order one and got it two weeks later. I ordered a 70# at 28" draw in camo realtree Ap finish. I set it up at 65# to get use to it plus getting arrow spines to better match it's force.
I accessoried mine with a 808s bowsling, Spot Hogg real deal sight, Mathews Down Force rest, G5 Meta 1/4" peep sight, a Stealth Stabilizer with Sims stab. Enhancer, Sims super quad LimbSavers, a Bow Rattler STS and Tree Limb premium 5 arrow quiver. Most of this came from another bow so it was very easy to setup.
After getting it home I did a walk back tuning on it. This was the easiest bow I have ever tuned and was on target at 20 yards and then out to 40 yards in no time. The Mathews Down Force rest has taken this job on with ease in my opinion.
Last evening I took my Radarchrono and set it up on this bow to test it and see if it is on IBO speeds. I shot four different grain arrow with different spines.
The Easton flatline 400 spine weighed out at 352 grains and it averaged out at 319 fps. That's what I calculated my setup would be in using the IBO test of 350 grains. The next arrow was a Easton Epic n-fused 340 Spine and it weighed in at 425 grains with a speed at 297 fps. That's calculated at 83.23 foot pounds or Kenetic energy. The next one was a Gold Tip Pro Hunter 75/95 weighing at 445 grains and it was at 290 FPS or 83.09 K.E.. I got a test done on a BlackHawk Vapor Pro HUNTER 5000 that weighed in at 500 grains and it was at 274 FPS and it is 83.34 K.E..
This amount of energy or K.E. is a grand increase from my other fast bows. I will say it has no ill affect on my accuracy. My groupings so far with this setup have been very good in my opinion out to 40 yards and will hopefully be doing out past that distance soon. I have shot a fixed blade broadhead from this bow out to 40 yards and they have centered in a 3" circle more than once.
If you have not shot one go give one a test run. This bow like others have said it is not for everyone but it is a darn good one.
