A friend has a High Country Iron mace it is an 09, I compared it to my 2010 Bengal. They are the exact same size and shape. The only difference was the he had duel cam and I had a single. When he shot it sounded the same as mine. So long and short of it he had a little more speed and that is not by much, and paid a whole lot more.

I haven't had any problem with the 3 piece riser. But as far as performance against the iron mace. Shooting side by side mine was a tad slower due to the single cam and his having duel. I did like the idea that mine was as quiet if not more quiet then his. That in it self shows that martin bows done right are just as quiet as all others.

No Speedykills I haven't chorno'd it yet. I am curious too! I should if I ever get a chance to. My draw length is 27 3/4. The cool thing was the iron mace was the same dl. I think I should get a chrono and solve running to a shop. But with 415gr arrows it is time to go a little lighter.

I agree. I like the grip style. Those limbs/cams look like they'd fit the Cheetah. I really would like my Cheetah to be dual cam. :cool:
