Untuned new string and over spinned arrows but I am quite pleased as a starting point. Only shot 12 arrows today. Will play with it a bit more tomorrow.

this is a girlie 50-60lb but sure is smooth and quiet. Going to run it through paper and a chrono later this week and see if I can't really get it shooting well.

No I'm back to work Monday so I don't have time to sit around and dream up a perfect bow or worry about whats wrong with my current. Only 6 weeks till bow season I'm going to have to stick with something now.

Yeah its the optifade forest pattern by goretex. It was offered on a few of the 2010 and some of the 2011 bows.

^^^ the only problem is no one stocks any of the accessories in optifade wanted to get an octane stabilizer for it.

Great bow. I could not be happier with mine.



If some animals are good at hunting and others are suitable for hunting, then the Gods must clearly smile on hunting.

Have the same optifade pattern on my D340. I just saw where G5 is making an Optifade patrerned quiver if you're interested. I have all black on mine.
