Default Long ATA bows with >300 fps speed

I have a 31" drawlength and I shoot a Bowtech Constiution with Allegiance Cams. This bow shoots 318 fps and is very forgiving. My 2005 Bowtech bow is getting old and I was looking for a new bow. I am not seeing to many long ATA bows on the market. Matthews has the Conquest Triumph at 39" ATA, the Drenlin LD at 37" ATA that go out to 31". Hoyt has a few bows at 41" ATA that go out to >31" and Bowtech has the Brigadier, but it only goes out to 30."

Anyone have any suggestions?

I'll say this about that... I love my Triumph and the effective string angle of this design is actually longer than the Apex at 42.5"... I have the 65% cam....

I have both, a Mathews Triumph and an Elite XLR. The XLR is currently my "go to" bow.

Default Hoyt Vantage Elite

I am a 31" dl and compete with Vantage Elites. With spiral cams I have no problem getting over 310 fps shooting less than 60 lbs with an arrow considerably heavier than IBO minimum.

With the low let-off of the Spiral cam at low poundage you get a super-hard wall, enough holding weight for a crisp release and a smooth draw cycle.

With the 2000 limbs you get "just enough" feed-back to know if you have tension/torque issues.

I'm not sure what more you could ask for

Default Don't sell the Conny

I have a Contender Elite on order but don't plan to sell my 07 Conny. I had a 98 Conquest Pro that got away from me once and I learned my lesson. If you have a bow that shoots really well for you make sure the new one is great before you sell the old one. That Conny is hard to beat for specs and performance. Just my .02.
