Default up-grading bow

Am seriously considering purchasing bowtech 101 airborne, have read most of your comments, have not heard of any negitive concerns, am I missing something? How smooth is the speed cam draw compared with other fast bows? Are you satified with the valley and the stop? Hoping to get approx. 300 ft/sec. with 70 lb. draw, 29 draw, 400-410 gr. hunting arrow. welcome any further inputs or comments, thanks.

From what I've read, thoes numbers seem realistic for that bow. I haven't tried that model bowtech, yet. It's a proven design, and I'll definately shoot one before I buy my next bow, if it's in my price range. I do know the General shoots great for me. I just won't spend that much on a bow at this time.

I get 305 at 27.5", 70lbs, 360 grain arrow. So you shoud get at least 300. It's fast and I can shoot it well, but it's honestly not my favorite bow I've owned. I liked my '06 Tribute a little better, but the speed keeps me shooting it.
