Brace 7 1/4"

Axle-to-Axle 36 1/2"
Brace 6 1/8"

same setup as the 101 above.
Both of these bows will have extruded risers.
General (ie Guradian style)
Axle-to-Axle 31 3/16"
Brace 8 1/4"
Mass Weight 4.5lbs
This bow has a forged riser, it will have the center pivot as well as the roller guard with string stop, upgraded cam with smooth and fast mods. This bow has it all!"
My Rep said that if you think the Guardian is shock/vibration free, you will be floored by the General.
If they ship the General as fast as they say, I'm rigging up a new hunting bow!
The 82nd is 26.5 to 30.5
The 101st is 27.5 to 31.5
The General is 26 to 30
The new Commander is 27.5 to 31.5
101st ATA 36 1/4" BH 7 1/4" Smooth mod 320 - 326 fast 332 - 340
82nd ATA 36 1/2" BH 6 1/8" Smooth mod 330 - 338 fast 342 - 350

stupid question......what is extruded???I cut things up and split them down!

manufacturing process used to create long objects of a fixed cross-sectional profile. A material, often in the form of a billet, is pushed and/or drawn through a die of the desired profile shape. Hollow sections are usually extruded by placing a pin or piercing mandrel inside of the die, and in some cases positive pressure is applied to the internal cavities through the pin. Extrusion may be continuous (producing indefinitely long material) or semi-continuous (producing many short pieces). Some materials are hot drawn while others may be cold drawn.
Extrusion of a round blank through a die
The feedstock may be forced through the die by various methods. A single or twin screw auger, powered by an electric motor, or a ram, driven by hydraulic pressure (for steel alloys and titanium alloys for example), oil pressure (for aluminum), or in other specialized processes such as rollers inside a perforated drum for the production of many simultaneous streams of material.
Extrusion simulation tools help to understand the extrusion process and to optimize development of tools and products.
Extrusion is also the first step in the process of extrusion and spheronization, a commonly used process in the pharmaceutical industry.
Commonly extruded materials include metals, polymers, ceramics, and foodstuffs.

Chris, The 308fps-314fps IBO on the General is with Speed Mods. Available Smooth Mods brings it down to 300fps to 308fps. All reports are it is one Sweet shooter
If Speed is your thing the Airborne 82 will most definitely Git-R-Done

"So they have copied PSE and Mathews for their NEW ideas huh?????
WoW what great engineering marvels they have working for them." --chukar8
"So I wonder why everyone is now going to a Roller Guard, I bet someone may be a little unhappy. Many of the Bowtech shooters dispise roller guards because they say they load the bow unevenly, causing limb twist and Idler or Cam Lean... Everyone seems to me going towards a Mathews idea, first Newberry, then HCA, then Elite, then the Gander Mtn bow by Bowtech, now Bowtech..." --Jeff_K_N_IL
"Good info...If I wasnt in love with my XT, I would def. be looking at a Bowtech.
wonder where they get all these good ideas?" ---OklaBow712
"thats makes me mad that thier tryin to copy mathews with the roller guard" ---TNbowhunter901
All within 90 minutes of the original post. Who does have the patent on the roller cable guard anyway???

If I have given misinformation regarding the patent....I apologize. If Matt McPherson invented it, then great (I didn't see it under patents listed under his name). But do they have to act like Mathews invented everything first and everyone else is a bunch of copy cats???? Sounds like 3rd graders on the playground......Pathfinder Arrow Wraps

I wish Dano didn't shoot a Mathews so I could talk more smack. His feelings are easily hurt.....Pathfinder Arrow Wraps

Very impressive by Bowtech I loved the Tribute. Might need to shoot the new ones???
Talk all the smack you want...............we all know Mathews is the greatest bow.
