Default Golden Eagle Obsession(questions)

Hello to all. Some of you I know from other forums, where I'm known as Bowhunter13.

Anyway, I have a question about this bow. Has anyone shot it?I've seen the review in Bowhunting, and it looks really good to me, especially the price and BH. The only two things that concerned me were the IBO speed, which is not that big of an issue except for Kinetic energy for mechanicals, and the grip. It is described as "meaty.". Does anyone know how this grip is related to other bows in the NAAG lineup, like the Buckmaster G2, or Bear Epic Extreme?

Thanks for the help. And nice to meet all of you.

I saw an add for it. Looks exactly like my Golden Eagle Evolution XTR. The IBO speed on my bow is 290. The brace height on mine is 6.75, axle to axle is 35". Do you have all the specs on the Obsession?

Sounds to me like it's on the same level as the xtr made by golden eagle. I don't really think there are any bad bows out there. I saw the article on it, and figured maybe they were replacing the XTR with the Obsession.

Fom the looks of it, it looks like the obsession is to golden eagle like the G2 is to Buckmaster, Epic Extreme to Bear, and Trophy master to Jennings. Other than that I don't know that much about it. Everyone seems to be caught up in the hoyt/bowtech battle, that other bows aren't getting much press.
