Assuming that both bows were of equal draw weight, I wonder which one would deliver greater arrow speed - the Dream Catcher recurve or the Bamboo Viper deflex-reflex. Any thoughts?

I have both, and they are both 50# bows. The speeds are very close. but my Dream Catcher is probably 1 or 2 fps faster with the same arrow (450gr carbon). The Dream Catcher shoots a little smoother and has almost no hand vibration as it is a heavier bow. The Viper is an awsome longbow, as is the Savannah.

I have a bunch of Martin Traditional bows (and a few compounds) and I love them all. They all have different personalities.

Good luck and let me know if you have any other questions.
