I have a Insanity and have had a Destroyer, the grooves are deeper for that very reason and Bowtech adressed that with the Insanity. To me the Insanity is all that the destroyer wasn't. It has a smooth draw and stores a load of energy. A much better grip and feel to me also. I have had several different bowtech models and I like the way they feel and perform. Not a bowtech fanboy but I shoot what I like and dont listen to pro-con debates. And I like they way they handle vets and servicemen too. You show me how many companys worldwide that place a bible quote on their shipping box right by their logo? My kind of company!! I don't think you'll go wrong if you choose the Insanity, just shoot one and make up your own mind.

I really enjoyed shooting the Insanity ( the draw was a touch to long ) I really want one. I drew it back set at 70lbs and to me it didnt feel like 70lbs, it felt more like 65lbs. I really liked the smooth draw cycle it had.
I would have gotten one if it came in my draw length... Being Short Sucks... Sometimes

Did you ever try heavier arrows I know with that bow a lot of people had to step up a weight because of the amount of energy that bow produced. Were you shooting a quality arrow?
