Well boys, I made it to my local shop to fire the cougar with nitro cams and the silencer with nitro cams. I must say both bows shot real well, comfortable and ease. They seem to shoot real well considering with the cougar I busted a knock off at 20 yrds. (3shots) and then I pulled a robin hood on the silencer bow(3shots). I couldn't believe this. I am a decent shot but no competition shooter by far. 3 ruined arrows out of 6 shots. I don't think the dealer was too happy. I sure hope this doesn't happen at my house. Lol. I think I'm going with Martin.
