Firm believer of, if it ainít broke, donít fix it! Still rocking my DXT, can still group at 40+ yards with no issue. Definitely a bit louder than the latest and greatest, but still canít make myself buy a new one. I just waste money on small stuff for it instead 🙄

My go to bow is the Phoenix 70# with the Fusion 7 a very close 2nd.

Obsession 2015 DE Phoenix 70#
Obsession 2016 Fusion 7 65#
Obsession 2014 Evolution 60#


I went from a brand new Mathews Triax to these 3 Obsessions. Some of the best drawing bows I have ever shot.

I bought a Diamond Car-bon Cure, never had a Diamond before or heard of them before. Seems like a decent bow. First bow I have had since 2006, when I sold my Darton, because I did not think I would ever be able to bow hunt again. Up to that point, I had multiple bows since I was 13.
Did fairly good on my first time shooting this bow, considering I had not shot a bow at all in over 11 years. I think with some more tuning and me practicing, it will do better.
