Default new limbsaver bow

I was just wondering if anybody has been able to look at or even shoot this very different bow? It just looks intruiging to me and there is no dealer even remotely close to me. The specs look pretty good though.

I shot the Bow at My shop i go to. It wasn't what i expected i guess since limb saver is always been about noise and shock free. I was expecting dead silience and no hand shock.Personally i think the general is smoother. Maybe itsnot as noisy because the general has that slap when the string hits the surpressor.It was pretty fast though, we never shot it through the chron.! But man that thing is ugly haha

I haven't shot it but would like to. I heard that the grip was a peice of crap. And i agree that the bow is butt ugly.

Limbsaver should have stayed out of the bow market.

I shot it at the ATA show this year and was pleasantly surprised. Yes, the grip was a bit fat and akward but they were working on revising that before they went into full-on manufacturing. Other than that, it shot great and was extremely vibration/noise free. I'd say it was right up there with the other top-end bows I shot including the new Bowtechs and the new DXT from Mathews. It might take a little while for this bow to catch on, but I believe if their quality holds up it should do fairly well. I wouldn't exactly say the bows are "ugly", they're just very non-traditional looking much like the new Bowtechs are. Oh, and you don't need a press to work on this bow also much like the new Bowtech's, which is a nice feature.

All in all I give it a thumbs up.
