Just started shooting again this summer, hope to get back to that level of accuracy at 65lb (I had nowhere to shoot it during the school year in DC, where I'm a grad student; now I'm back down South for the summer).
Just remember to check your screws. I bought mine from the bargain cave at Cabela's, and they make sure the cams are in sync for me whenever I want it checked on. The screws had backed out slightly on my modules from all the vibration the previous summer; fortunately, there were only signs of friction on the cams, no stress signs on the limbs.

Bought one for my G-Son & he loves it. He has 27" draw. I could see problems with LONG DRAWS with string angle due to short Axel to Axel for a new shooter. I shot it (29" draw) & was fine with it.. Granted you get better "usually" with more $$ but I used a $90 Darton SL50 for years on at least 50 assorted biggame animals & a Buffalo, 2 Elk, several Whitetails, several wild hogs & an Antelope + more with a $240 retail single cam Darton I bought on clearance for $99. Photos are animals with that $99 Darton & it was short too.

Thanks for the insight ahunter55! That's all I am after is the memories and the experience. I hope everything plays out so that I can have my own archery album.
