Default Diamond Black Ice or Browning Mirage?

I have been looking a bow to buy since i have been using the same bow about 8 years now. Im thinking of either the Diamond Black Ice or the Browning Mirage. I was just wondering if anyone had any opions or useful facts on either one of these bows? Thank you for your inputs.

Go shoot both then decide. For me, I'm leaning toward the Ice.

I have shot the black Ice and really liked it, very light bow and a decent price for a great bow. It was one of my final considerations before I went with the Vetrix (hoyt).

Both are excellent shooters in my opinion. Anyone considering a new bow should definitely have both bows in their lineup of choices. I love shooting my Black Ice and plan on taking it out with me tomorrow morning in that never-ending search for a big buck.

its going to boil down to preferance. They are both virtually identical. minus a inches A/A. brace, ibo, close to being the same. both are dead quiet. I have shot them both and found no reasons that one shoots better than the other. I like both grips and balnce is good on both.The draw cycle on the Mirage is just a tad bit smoother at the middle of the ramp. but not enough that you'll really notice between the 2. The only difference is price. With the Mirage being a little cheaper. Other than that. I would recommend you shoot them blind folded, blank bailing. So you can make a fair choice.
