Default Preliminary results of new Q2

I got the Q2 set up today with the following:

WB, string loop, kisser, Tru Glo Brite, Doinker 7 inch w/ 9oz, Limbsaver Ultras with bow set at 70 lbs draw. The pro shop talked me out of the string leeches, saying they just don't last long enough. Plus, if they break, my peep could get twisted slightly.

The bow is much improved over my very dated hoyt. I am very pleased with the bow so far as it is quiet and smooth, though not quite as much as the Outback.

With my 30 inch Beman 340's and 100 grain tip, I shot 275 fps. With the WB, I will be able to reduce my overall length to 28 +- inches and should be able to drop from the heavier 340 to the 400's or comparable arrow. I expect this will allow me to pick up 15-20 fps.

Overall, I am very pleased with the bow but need to spend more time w/ it. I have only shot 20 arrows but was beginning to feel the muscle fatigue, so i stopped.

I think I am going to love the sight. It is very bright and simple to adjust. I am sighting it in (one pin) for 25 yds and it's pretty close.

I think the Q2 is a great bow, but hey I am biased. I should probably phrase it as I think it is a great bow for me. I find it to be smooth draw, quiet and easy to shoot. Good luck with it.

Excelent choice teal , I shot quiet a few animals with my q2 , a very nice bow . I thought it was one of mathews best , and could not understand why it was discontinued . You definatly dont have to shoot 70 lbs , so if you want to back it down do so
