Default Obsession, Xpedition, or one one the big three (or four)

Hey guys,
Wanting to get a new rig. What do the local experts think of the Obsession and/or Xpedition bows? How do they compare to the big three (or four - Bowtech, Mathews, PSE, Elite). I "probably" realize no one makes a bad bow these days, but the question remains...particularly for those that have shot and/or own an Obsession/Xpedition - what do you think of them?

Thanks fellas/gals
Mitch

Top notch.. As far as the speed bows from different manufacturers Obsessions draw better than any in their class IMO. I'm thinking of trying the Xpedition Xcentric next.

I vote for Obsession .Order it in mid April and still waiting. If you want one sooner look around and you may can find a used one. They have a transferable warranty so no fear if that is a concern.

Elite is still small timing. Compare to Mathews hoyt bowtech and pse. But I want to shoot the obsessions so bad.

Well.....just depends on what you want out of a cam system. Hybrid, binary.

Co grats on the purchase. I've had a couple obsessions. They're good shooters.

You won't be unsatisfied. I got a Sniper X'S last year and love it. Not as smooth as my Elite but it's a speed freak.

I love the Obsession "Evolution". Bad to the bone. I'll prolly own one sooner rather than later. But, I ordered an Xpedition Xcentric yesterday. It's every bit as bad to the bone as the Evolution and I can have it in one week instead of 6-8 weeks. But my target bow is still an Obsession. I've got the Addiction to shoot spots and 3D with.

I would say try them all. I shot the Obsession Evolution and Expedition X-Ring Vii, both were great shooting bows. I would wait 6 weeks but I've seen people that have been waiting 4-5 months. No freaking way.....growing pains I guess but it sucks. Besides, KS has his money tied up in other areas

A business man he's not. No arguing that. But a great designer for sure. If you haven't shot the Obsession line, you need to. Also, the Xpedition Xcentric is wicked. Shoot me a PM sometime and I'll meet you at CCR and you can shoot mine. You'll see what I mean.

I've shot the Obsession Evolution, I was impressed with the draw cycle and how it felt at the shot.

Do you have the Xcentric? It looks identical to the Obsession line IMO....but I've heard nothing but good stuff about them.

Yessir the Xcentric. Yes they do look very much alike with the exception of the cam system. They draw almost identically. The Evolution is a touch quieter. The Xcentric is a touch faster and more often hits its advertised IBO. They're both dead in the hand on the shot. The Xcentric is easier to tune due to being a yoke system. The Evolution finish is slightly better or at least different. Both great bows. When I can afford it ill own both.

Send it to me if you want to give it away. I'd like to have one to build a frankenbow.

I wasn't aware that The Xcentric had yokes but I knew the Obsession had bin at cams like Elite. Interesting. Do you do your own tuning?

KS is really giving some great designs to both companies and they are putting out some great bows.

I love his single cam on the Xpeditions. That XR7S is a SHOOTER!!!! It would be my second choice to the E35 probably.

Try the Xpedition Xcentric before you pull the trigger on the Evolution.

You know me. I'm not opposed to owning several. I still can't part with my 82. I know a lot of "girls" talk about oh it not smooth, it vibrates to much. Bottom line that thing has been a killing machine for me since 2008. I ain't gettin rid of it.
