My kind of camo! Would like to see how people compare the '13 AX to the previous models.
REAL AVID Field Staff
The bow sets up (centershot / nock point) just about the same as the previous AX's. The overall feel is very similar also but hand placement seems more consistant with the narrower saddleback grip. If anything - the AX4 may be a bit more stable at full draw than the AX's. Even tho the ATA is only 1/2" longer, the riser itself is several inches longer with shorter and a bit more parallel limbs. I holds really steady.!
It is also much quieter than the AX's. No vibration at the shot at all, even without a stab or any limb dampeners. And it doesnt have the 'thump' that the AX does.
I've only put a couple hundred arrows thru it but it is being very accurate and a joy to shoot. (the first 4 I shot thru it from 20yds with no peep or sight resulted in a 3" group and 1 broken nock...)
S0 - I'm really liking it so far and will get sighted in a bit farther (only out to 40yds now), chrono some different weight arrows and post a bit more in-depth report soon.
Thanks Martin. And Thanks Jim.!
Sweet setup Spiker, I am definitely jealous!

nice...yeah the new ones definetly have less thump. i think the stabilizer actually added vibration to mine
