i shot the game over right before i bought my diamond. i didn't care for it, it just didn't feel comfortable to me, but to u it may feel alright, i've heard good things about them, but it just wasn't right for me. some advice would be to just go shoot it and make your decision on how it feels and what your looking for in a bow

i have a Fred Bear Element 28" 55-65 and my buddy shoots a mathew switch back and he can not believe how quite my bow is and how evenly it pulls back.. I have shot 5 deer with my bow and not once has it let me down(knock on wood)
my longest was a 65yrd shot on a nice doe.. I love bear and sticking with bear...

I am going tomorrow to shoot the truth and the lights out. I am leaning more toward the lights out because of the price and its length and forgiving brace height. The money I save on that instead of the truth can go towards a gun! We'll see how the feel and shoot. I am hoping i like it.

I just bought my 2nd Bear Bow i bought the Truth 2 i'm in love with this thing. Its so light 3.8lbs so smooth so quite "stock"
my cousin has a bowteck tomkat and cant believe how sweet it is. I demo'ed Truth 2 Truth and Done Deal at gander and for over an hr they were all great bows but my truth 2 took the cake. My buddy shoots a mathews 2005 switchback and wants too sell his now.. just my .02

Ok well I went and shot the truth 2 and the lights out today. I honestly preferred the lights out. Like the more forgiving higher brace height. I dont have the steadiest hand in the world. The bow was quiet and felt great in my hands. It was a little heavier than I thought it would be but it had the quiver and a big stabilizer on it. I am going to shoot the mathews to compare but unless it really blows my mind I think I am gonna save the money and go for the lights out.
