Ratís a Prime guy, shoot him a message and he can give you the lowdown more than likely. Any feedback he gives will be solid, guy knows his stuff.

I don’t have a black but I did purchase a logic ct5 last year. I’m liking it really well so far.

G5/Prime makes a helluva bow, but you need to shoot one to know for sure if ti will fit you or not.

I have shot most of the Black series and I will say this:

Very dead in the hand, just the slightest vibe after the shot, easily taken care of with a good stabilizer with some energy dissipating fittings (I use Doinker and they work great).

Draw and rollover is very similar to my Logic, just a little bit less of a dump into the valley.

Holds like a rock.

Free strings every two years, pretty good deal and they are good strings, not junk; and you can get them in any color you want, as long as you want black.

Exceptionally easy to tune; of all the Primes I've tuned all tuned with just using the Flexis AR except one and I had to swap limbs on that one.

They really are great bows and they fit me well, but there are many good bows out there, shoot them all, buy the one that you can't live without!

I have the Prime Black 5. I shot a lot of this years bows including the Black 3. I can't say a bad think about any of them. I landed on the Black 5 probably mostly due to the fact I have been shooting a Centergy Hybrid LD. I like the string angle and feel of a 35" bow.

The only thing i didn't like about the Black 3 was on the draw. It just felt like it stacked up a lot more. It seems like that is also a curse of longer draw length on some bows. When I draw bows with shorter draw lengths before lengthening the draw length they don't seem near as bad.

A buddy on here got the Black 3. Maybe he will chime in.
