    Awesome bow, not the fastest but if you want blazing speed you also get vibration noise and unforgiving shootability! The element is plenty fast for me and I have yet to find anything wrong with this bow!

    Best bow I’ve ever owned right here. I get compliments on it all the time, especially when I let people try it out.
