Dare I ask if this bow should be allowed in the archery season or should it be relegated to the gun season like the crossbow???

It's got to be extremely difficult to hold steady.

An archery shop here in Maine had a couple in stack last summer. I went in and shot one in their indoor range.

This thing is for real. I shot it about 25 times, by the time that I got to my last 4 arrows, I put 2 in the x-ring and the other two were just outside of the X. All 4 arrows were in about a 2 and a half inch group.

It held steady and shot nice. It had more hand shock than any other bow I shot that day. (I shot about 20 different bows that one day.) I wanted something faster though, so I didn't buy it. It was also just under $1000. Also, the guy told me that you HAVE to use a "whisker biscuit type rest." I don't care for that style of rest and I didn't want to be tied to that.

To the guy who said that it was like a crossbow?????? No, you have to draw and shoot it just like any other compound bow. It just happens to be very short.

The problem with this bow is you got a better chance of the string jumping off the cam if you decide to withdrawl and not shoot. To much flex in the let off if your wrist is anything less than super strong.

WOW! Talking about outside the box thinking.

Stability? Longer bows provide more stability.

I did draw a bow the other day in a dealers store, and I cannot think of the name of it, but a 99% let-off bow. VERY hard to let down. The string feels like it almost gets slack in it.Hang onto the string!
