    Default Cougar and silencer

    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.

    Seems like they fit you well, good shooting. Once you get your's home, I'd go to shooting one spot per arrow!

    They have the same string lengths, the same cam system, same specs. One has a cooler riser (IMO), but costs more...
