Silencer in my future?
Well my dealer ordered two Silencers into stock and I have a nice offer on my AX when it gets back from Walla Walla with new cams. Anybody want to put up some pros and cons for me to get rid of my sweet 2010 AX for a 2011 Silencer?
31.5" vs 32"
330-340 vs 335-345
2010 vs 2011
Barnsdales vs Powertough
CCS and STS vs SOS and TRG
I wouldn't make that decision till I got my AX back and shot it for a while. Also 2011's haven't been out long enough. Not to say they are problem child's. Just to say wait and see. But thats me talking. Besides that AX is a nice bow.
i think they will be close the grip would be the big thing the new grip is pretty nice i shot a onza the other day .
no doubt. I absolutely love the X, fast accurate and and an all around bad ass bow. Am excited to see and shoot the silencer though
Keep the AX.!!!!
Save up some $$ and buy the other bow after it's been out awhile.
Ya can never have too many.
Not to say that silencer wouldn't make me want one. But sounds like your got the new bow bug. You know once you shoot it, it is all over.;)
He's right two bows are better than one. Ask Spiker he has many.:D

The Barnsdales are proven limbs, seen one X survive 2 dryfires, the cams and strings needed replaced, the limbs were still good.
I think the Power Tuff limbs will be a good solid limb and should prove to be durable, but we already know the barnys are good.
Nothing wrong with the TRG/SOS, but I still prefer the ccs,sts from last year.
Save your change and get the Silencer later on, always nice to have a backup bow setup and ready to go just incase.
I absolutely agree that the X will hit IBO, as you can see by my signature that my "adjusted" IBO is right on list for the high end of the AX. my Firecats were close but never got there. I'll also take Barnsdales laminates over anyones solid limb. Want to shoot the Silencer with the TRG/SOS so the verdict is still out on that. And I DOOOO need a second bow seeing as I am down for the second time due to cams.
Not saying the Power Tuff limbs aren't good. They haven't been out long enough to draw and conclusions, but considering the specs are almost identical I'd choose the one with Barnesdale limbs. Then again, you might be able to swap the limbs from bow to bow and have a Frankenbow.
