Haven’t shot the Ss. Looks great but numbers suck

Shot the rs and it was very nice!!!

I own a realm x and won’t trade this year but the rs is a better bow package


Never understood the “smooth bow” hype. When performance at 10 pounds less will always be smoother at same speed

Shot SR6 side by side with the Realm X. Easily chose SR6. Nice bow!

Just bought the SR6 today!! Love it. Im shooting a 459gr arrow at 306ftps. Itís putting out about 95ftlbs of KE and about 0.624 in momentum. Itís definitely putting out better numbers than my Prodigy

Just shot the SR6, SS and the X a few hours ago. Loved both the SR6 & SS.... don’t think you could go wrong with either. I felt the SR6 was a little smoother for the first few inches... and then they were equal. The SS felt a little better after the shot to me and a little more comfortable. Either way..... I’d take either one of those bows without hesitation

I was very impressed with how it shot. Like I said had I not bought the x last year I’d buy this one. But can’t take that kinda hit for no more difference.

Ss is nice too.... just no need in that slow a bow @ 6” BH..... when the others draw as smooth as they do. The SR6 will shoot same everything at 60 that Ss will at 70. 60 will be smoother at that point... no brainer

What is your DL and Iím guessing 70# DW? Iím going to buy one here soon but was thinking I would be closer to 302 FPS with a 425 grain arrow 29Ē DL @ 70 #

If you are a true 30Ē draw it will stack a little bit at the end of the draw cycle but really all Bowtech bows feel that way to me. Itís super dead in hand for a speed bow and Uber quiet.
