    I think that is an awesome bow. Extremely fast and holds real nice. I would recommend you try it and decide for yourself.

    Thumbs up I have

    well the bow is freak'in fast.
    I liked it and it shoot well, and is pretty quiet, however i feel the General is very smooth, quiet, no hand shock, and a better bow if you are going to go hunt, and it is only 30fps slower, the Guardian is a lot like the general but is a little faster
    Lose'em, shoot'em, fling'em, or fly'em aslong as they hit the mark. SHOOT FOR YOU!!!!!!!!!!

    I've shot it several times and find it very smooth and really fast. For hunting i think I would go with the 101 though.

    I have shoot a couple of 82nd to date. The bow shoots really nice, holds nice, and is overall a very good bow. The only fault I have with the bow is the draw cycle is harsh compare to the Iron Mace or the XForce. Out of the three bows I have mentioned the Xforce has the smoothest draw cycle.

    Default Yep

    It has a lot less hand shock than the GENERAL....With a 12 stabilizer it has better balance.... Look for one of the shrewds

    Agreed...the draw is better on the 101 and I will take the 10fps slower and added BH over the harsh(er) draw of the 82nd. Don't get me wrong though, the 82nd is a sweet bow as well!
