I got a chance to shoot this bow at the Boat & Sportman's show in Edmonton and I was very, very impressed. I like to have a short axle-to-axle bow in my arsenal and this one compared very well to the longer bows. Usually shorter bows have a harsher draw cycle and considerably more vibration, but not this one. In fact it was one of my favorite bows by APA. Had a nice draw cycle, and nice back wall and the vibration was nothing unusual. Had I not recently purchased a bow I would have bought this one on the spot.
