    A few months later I picked up a DS 2500, I think. Loved it, but the same pain returned. All I can figure is that something about the draw cycle, or how I draw just didn't work with them. I've never experienced the same strain before or since. Great bows, but they didn't like me.

    Which model did you win?
    Were you using the same release? I tried switching from my tried and true winn free flight to a scott silverhorn and i started developing pain during the draw cycle. anyone want a scott silverhorn $30(buckle)tyd.

    Looks to be a fast bow. About the same class as the onza, just a little shy on the bh. Cograts on the new bow. Remember to post pics!
