I've been bowhunting for five years now, my first and current bow is a PSE STL (Primos Speak The Language). When i started bowhunting, i didn't know anyone who did and just walked into the local bow shop who recommended the bow and have been very happy ever since. Now days, i have four great hunting buddies who all bow hunt and do so with the shorter ATA bows. Mine is 38", really never have much of an issue with it except in those few occassions i hunted out of a ground blind (top limb hitting blind). So i took the leap after an exhausting past few months testing many of the new bows on the market, i just ordered the new Martin Silencer. Must admit i'm a little nervous, my PSE has never failed me, but the feel of the Silencer felt great and looking forward to adding new accessories. Plus, i'm sure the chrono speed should be higher than my current 245......hehe.
