Don't have that one, but did buy the Element back in the fall. Hadn't shot a bow at all in about 12 years, and took me no time to get great groups. Took it hunting and shot a nice doe at 35 yards. Also popped 6 armadillos, ranging between 5 yards and 40 yards. Very smooth and quiet bow. Since the Element is at the low end of the Bear line, I would think that the Truth is a great bow.

I have the Bear Truth and I think it's great!! Its a great bow for money, when you compare it to a similar bow from another company. It is quiet and fast,I love the way it shoots and feels to me. I don't think you can go wrong with any Bear bow. My brother-n-law has the Bear Instinc and he loves it.

The bear Truth is a badass bow if you can afford it. I think they are $500 and change?? I have shot one and personally i think its an awesome bow.

Hey, glad to hear from someone who has the new Truth. I am looking to switch up bows and am looking at the Truth. Can you tell me anything about the vibration and noise? Am looking for a parallel limb bow that is somewhat less expensive than the Mathews, Hoyt, etc...
I currently have a Bear TRX 32 and have always liked Bear products. Also, what did you pay for the Truth? I see ebay specials for the Truth at about $475 compared to around $550 MSRP. I think $550 is what they are generally selling for in the bow shops. Any info would be a great help.

I have never read a single negative word about Bear bows. That tells you something about the bows.

It has very little noise and vibration. It has a lot less noise and vibration than alot of the big boys that I shot on the market, at least thats my opinion. I paid $550 for mine from the one of my local bow shops. Go shoot one and check it out. I agree with Terrym, I did alot of research on all Bear bows on the internet and at local bow shops and I never heard 1 negative comment about any of there products. I hope this helps. If you have any more questions just let me know and I will try to answer it for you. Goodluck

Thanks guys. I am dumping a Bear TRX 32 and have loved it. I also like Bear products. I will check it out. If it shoots anything like the Bear that I have owned, it should be a good buy.
