Love the looks of the limb (red) blood stripes (thats what I call them anyway ) with the black Destroyer.
Marine Corps thing I guess.

But I keep asking myself,
Am I the only one that keeps thinking the black bow's are more like old school then something new ?
You know what was offered before they started using camo.
Just saying !

Sweet looking bow. I'm still waiting for the snow to melt so I can shoot some distances to do my review.

Did you say 367 fps?!?! How light are your arrows? That is smoking.

Dan, you better post up some pics of those side plates. I may be pre-ordering a set of those if I like.

I just got my Destroyer 340 a few days ago and I agree with everything you said in your thread especially getting used to the grip. What is different from my previous Bowtech/Diamond bows is that the Destroyer's grip is slotted/grooved. Finally, after about 200 arrows I've got my brain to just allow me to place my hand in the slot and enjoy the ride!!

Awesome bow and setup.. I thought you were right on with the review.. I have the Destroyer 340 and its everything I could ask for in a bow.. My one question is that I'm extreemly surprised that you are getting 367 fps, thats well beyond what the IBO for that bow is (with speedpro's/70#/@29" they had it rated I thought around 340ish)?? I also know that the peep/tube will slow you string speed down around 7-8fps--as well as anything else on your set up (sting loops ect...)--SO in reality your blain bow is getting around 375-380--thats a stretch! I believe with my set-up I am getting 321 fps, that is with a medium/light arrow at 28"/70#(the 340 is about 10fps slower then the 350 but definatly no 360 fps)...

I actually went off my shop owners bow! He gets 365fps I always thought our setup was the same but was wrong! My bow is set at 67# and I'm shooting around 338fps! Sorry for the misleading info. I we at the shop yesterday finally had time to shoot and tweek some the most I got out of it was 350 on the nose at 70.5#. That's to much formy shoulder anymore so I cranked it down!

With the speeds these bows produce today, especially the Destroyer and other speed bows, 67# is way more than enough. That's still some very impressive speed. I can't wait to see how mine performs on a deer.
