Kinda look'd like one of those POS... I mean PSE dream season bows (or whatever they're called). I'll stick with my Assassin.

Looks like a sweet bow for sure, but I don't know how they use the slogan "Refuse to Follow" with a straight face.

Does it try to hit you in the forehead like the invasion does? That was my only real issue with last years model. I don't use stabilizers typically.

Precision archery has one at their shop. I shot it and to me feels better than the D350 and invasion. No kick back like the invasion and the let off is incredible. The new cam design is awesome. Super fast and quiet.

It will be a big seller, and since Mathews already duplicated the pre loaded limbs like PSE this is another duplication. And as I see it, the bow is only rated 5fps faster than the Destroyer 350. And those are some really big cams. Wonder if they had to be that big to get the 5 feet and still be a pretty smooth draw.

Ive been shootin Bowtech since '04 now. But I still dont get this brand loyalty crap unless youre sponsored by said bow company. When I get ready to buy a new bow it will be based on that particular bow and I wont really care who's name is on it. Long as it's not a Mathews...
