    I fired the Black Ice. Very nice bow.
    I have not tried the others so I cannot comment on them.

    I'm not going to steer you one way or another. We could go on and on about a bow for hunting purposes only!! I'm a PSE guy . so, I'm alittle biased. But I'm not one to say there arent any other good hunting bows. My experience is w/ mathews,bowtech, martin,pse. I personally love my Illusion. I bought mine in '05 when they first came out. I have been looking at alot of hunting bows lately. and ahvent found a reason to get rid of it yet. Fit, trim and performance. the Illusion is hard to beat. also, take a look at the Martin Bengal. Excellent bow. I havent shot any diamonds yet. There basically a bowtech. And I have shot a bowtech. Parker, not a big fan of. Fed bear truth. Excellent bow. but has to many mathews accessories on it. looks like a split limb switchback to me!! LOL, But a super smooth bow!

    with the Illusion?
    w/ what arrow weight. I tested mine at 70#, 30" draw w/ a 350 grn arrow and got 319fps.
    My set up now is : 338 grn arrow at 63# and 28" draw and I'm getting 288 fps.

    I tried the Black Ice and the Truth while looking for my new bow. Of those two, I liked the Black Ice much better.

    What about a Reflex?
    They run $100 to $150 less than the Diamond here, depending on which bow your looking at.
