What is your arrow weight and string configuration? 310 is damn good, I can understand why you are happy. You got a nice fast bow there gravedigger.
i bought it stock as far as i know.please keep in mind i am not very educated on bows(i have only been shooting for around 8 months).and all the work thats been done to it was done by archers afield in oregon.i have the stock string.acu trac cam.f4 mod,i just bought the(and forgive me i dont yet know all the terms)roller ccs and sts package.my draw is 28.5 maybe 29.and im pulling back 73#.my arrows are gt pro hunter 75-95# arrows 8.9gpi.vanetech vanes,gt knocks,cut down to 27.5.they put in a nice peep.i dont know what the name of it is but its small with no tubing.and really i just went into there shop maybe two weeks ago and told them to make it fast and give me the best they had to offer.this week im going in and haveing them put winners choice string on and once again i will tell them to do the best they can.73#is starting to fell realy ez to pull back,so if i can in any way i would like to get it up to 80#,if not i will have to wait a few years.my wife is not likeing all this money im spending on my bow..

i was kind of thinking the same thing about the limbs.the archery shop told me 73 is about it.but i am allways going to want more.for now i fell good about going after elk in september,even better about cougar right now.i just cant wait to get in the deep woods.the 3d corse near my house is getting to ez.they do have 40 targets i shoot at.and befor i hit the 3d i practice with 20 to 80 maybe more shoots.i am just addicted to shooting this bow.i cant hardly get it out of my hands.i go twice a week to shoot the 3ds.then i have 30 yards in my back yard just to calm the itch.i really need to calm down a bit.just a fyi.there are only around 2300 to 2600 registerd bow hunters in oregon.the restrictions that odfw puts on archery is crazy.i only get 1 moth to hunt elk and 1 and a half moths for deer.cougar is year round.
