The rep came by CCR today (as well as TexasCanesFan & Cousin) and brought the new Strother Wrath & SX-Rush in 60lbs and 28" setups. I have been shooting Strother SR-71, Vanquish and SX-1 in competition for the last season, before that I shot Hoyts for 10 years. And being surrounded by all the other top models at the shop. It's safe to say that I can make an honest comparison
The new cam system has developed into one of the smoothest drawing bows I have ever shot. I was able to shoot both bows side by side with light (Easton Flatlines) and medium weight (Beman Hunter Elite & Easton Epics) arrows all in 400 spine.

32" Axle to axle, 8" brace height, 80% let off, adj draw length 27" to 31.5" , IBO speed of 328.
From the 1st look of the specs I was assuming the Wrath would have been just a re-cammed Vanquish. Nothing could be further from the truth. The Wrath is an all new bow with a re-designed riser and cam system. The bow offers a smooth draw cycle with no "hump" in the draw. The back wall is the solid wall you have come to know from all the Strother bows. At full draw the bow sits steady in the hand even for a short axle bow, on release the bow offers a dead in the hand shot.

34" Axle to axle, 6-1/2" brace height, 80% let off, adj draw length 26" to 30.5" , IBO speed of 342
I was, and still are a fan of the original SX-1. I was amazed when I pulled back the SX-Rush. The speed and stability of the original SX-1 remained, with the hump or "drop" in the draw cycle is gone (more noticeable on the "fast" modules over the "smooth". When I pulled the trigger on my release I could not believe how smooth the bow felt. No kick, thump or snap, it shot deadly smooth.
For over two hours TCF, Cousin & I had the opportunity to shoot both bows repeatedly along with the previous years models for comparison. I pulled a couple stabilizers off the shelf and the shooting got more interesting.
I was especially surprised when bow bows were shot side by side through the chronograph with a 350 grain arrow and shot almost 290fps at 60lbs and 28" draw! I can tell you this...there will be two new Strothers in my bow cabinet this fall.
