Like everyone already said, (never shot that particular bow) but Bear makes great bows for the price. I shoot the Lights Out..Good luck with it

Last two Bear bows I owned shot as easily and accurately as anything I've ever owned, and better than most. I had a Buckmaster in Adv. Timber camo , and I had the Fred Bear bow company model that was like the original Code but with a perimeter weighted cam (cannot remember the name)- that PWC bow was easily one of the 5 best shooting bows Ive owned. I could not miss with that SOB.

I've handled the new Truth2 and it's a fantastic bow- especially considering the price- I want one! I think Bear gets a bad rap, but it's really undeserved- no they are not the upper echelon of speed and "performance" or have the coolest risers with the most meticulous machining- they are just well priced solid working-man hunting bows, and thats a great niche to be in, IMO. Generally the strings and cables are the weakest link (barring the T2) -replace them with something high quality.
