New Bow in Mid Season

Hated to do it in the middle of the season but after irreconcilable differences with my Browning I bought a new bow. Picked up the Whisper Creek Stealth little while ago. Very quiet and smooth bow, the most compact bow I've ever seen! Can't wait to get out tomorrow and get some arrows through it Big smile Hope I can make my adjustments quick

I'll let you know after I get out and run some more arrows through, but from what I have pulled it's smooth, quiet, fast, and feels real comfy. Only 25" axle to axle.

mine is 30 or 31 A to A, but like RR said, it is real smooth and quiet. All I can say is, Its a joy to shoot this bow. At 70lbs draw, its super easy.. RR, I hope you are putting carbons through it.. What draw length and weight are you shooting? Waht length arrow and arrow weight?

You got me nervous now I had just bought a dz. Alums so decided to stay with those for this season. I had originally planned on buying the bow in the spring and switching to carbon at that point.
Draw length 29" @ 65 lbs. I use 100 gr. Thunderheads on a 28.5" 2413 XX78 SuperSlam.

The Aluminums are fine, but will be real slow comparitively.. When you get the carbons, you should be pushing close to 270fps... I may be underestimating though.. Also, if/when you get carbons, if they are under 9.0gpi you may consider a lighter broadhead.
