Congrats on the new bow! I like it. The Diamond Edge was the other main bow I was considering when I made my purchase. Now, archery season just needs to get here so you can initiate the bow properly! Thumbs up

Shot the new bow for the

Shot the new bow for the first time this past Friday. At 20-25 yards I was putting 6 arrows in about a three inch group. When I moved back to 30 yards those same 6 arrows became about a 9 inch grouping. I don't have a kisser button on the string and my buddy was watching my anchor point and he said I was all over the place at the longer distance. We stopped right there. I will shoot again after I get the kisser button and see how it goes then.

Just got my kisser button put

Just got my kisser button put on. The shop also tuned the bow for me. They said it was definitely out of whack and with the kisser and the tuning I should notice a big difference. Can't wait to get it back out and shoot again.

I am definitely dialed in at

I am definitely dialed in at the shorter distances, 10 and 20 yards. All my shots at this range are nicely grouped inside of a 4" circle. I must have fired 70-80 arrows. I did go back to 30 and fire a few but I was pretty tired by this time and it was hard to stay consistent. I will do 30 and 40 yards the next time out. The bow seems to be shooting great. As long as I can stay consistent with my anchor points and do what I know I need to do I think it will be another great year!!!!!
