I absolutely love the way the General shoots.

If I weren't concerned about speed and was looking for a bow I truely enjoyed shooting, I would go with the General. Having a shorter draw length, you're definitely going to be on the slower side with the General. The Equalizer was designed specifically for people with a short draw length.

Yes, the General is very accurate in terms of forgiveness and hold. I'm very pleased with the groups/ accuracy it's given me right out of the box.

I can imagine more when I get her broke in and the feel for her.

I havne't however shot the Equalizer so I cannot compare the two. Tonight I was playing with my newly arrived 82nd Airborne. I'm curious, you didn't mention your draw length? The reason I ask, I've backed down my 82nd to 62 lbs and it's spitting out a 343 grain arrow at 320fps. Now I intend to go heavier for hunting but you get the idea.

I haven't finished setting up my 82nd but at a slightly longer 36" ATA, adequate brace especially for a short DL, She'll be one hell of a shooter.

Until my Ally, I never owned shorter than a 36" ATA bow.

You'll get a ton of speed out of the 82nd at your short DL. You might be pleasantly surprised.
