I agree on the going shorter part. I've owned and hunted with an Icon, Ovation, Conquest, Conquest 2, Conquest 8, FX, and SB, and still have a couple Rival Pros. FX was/is the quietest bow I ever shot, just too short of a sight window for my liking.
Speed has never been my game, I did'nt buy them for their speed rating. I'm more interested in hunting than foam or paper scores. They've never let me down in the woods.
Bash all you want, they hunt pretty damm good.
