    so i set up a makeshift range outside in the yardlight...... and i started with just the silencers i put on last night. my 396 grain 400 spline aarows were shooing about 296 with just a loop and no tubing peep. with the silencers i dropped to a 293 average. added limbsavers and shot again, for a 291 average. so i shot my 360 grain 400 spline aarows for a 298 average. its now quieter than i ever thought it could be, and still fast!! consistancey over the chrono was +/- 1 fps with all of the arrows, and i have another one to look for, cause it blew right through my target....

    anyway im way impressed with my 360 dollar bow!!

    hopefully the cheetah put martin in the consumers minds.

    lol i hope the exile outperforms the 2010 cheetah, but i have my doubts

    Yep. More stuff than you know what to do with...and maybe shouldn't.

    I found that a shooter bow to have just have fun with is nicer than worrying about the least little thing. Okay, a bow doesn't have to be perfect, you do....

    I would quote Bernie Pellerite, Professional Level IV Master Coach; "Tuning can only be relevant if you have consistent form, and if you have consistent form, tuning then becomes irrelevant."

    Bernie has a new book coming out soon. Update of Idiot Proof Archery.

    yeah. i suspect its sorta like tuning a racecar. there is alot you can do, but if you cant drive, it all becomes irrelivant.

    Yep if you hit the broad side of a barn. Tend to your form a little and you can hit the fly on the broad side of a barn.

    Speaking of barns, hay, straw, you know that blanking bale shooting? You don't use a bull's eye to aim. Hitting a target should be a snap.
