    Shoot it for yourself!!! I think the A82 is the best shooting BT I have owned. I may buy another for hunting as well!

    I have one and it is the best thing I have ever shot. 53.7#@29" with 325gr CX Maximas--300fps. This bow glues itself to the target, the pin holds extremely steady. Do yourself a favor and get the 50#-60# version. With all that speed there is absolutely no need to shoot 70#, that will only waste your shoulders. The birth certificate on my bow said 60#, 300gr, 335fps. If you need more than that there's something wrong.

    I know I liked the one I pulled, a LOT. Didn't get to release, no rest on it, but gonna try setting up in adv. to actually shoot one shortly...hopefully against an ally or guardian

    The 82nd is a great bow. I have shot it several times. Nice draw, AWESOME speed, and great accuracy.

    I have shot it and it was nice, but I liked the 101st better myself. Can't go wrong with either, but I would shoot both before you decide!

    I picked my 82nd the other day. 29" - 70#. I have not run it through a chrono yet, but that thing smokes. The new camo finish is nice and this is a very quiet bow. It will take one heck of a spooked animal to jump the string.

    VERY nice bow though, quiet and fast and holds well

    Yep, just got one myself. I would also shoot the 101st. They are very different feeling but both are fast. For me I felt that the 82nd was a little more comfortable in the hands.
