Default Got an 07 Tribute

So this is what it's like to compromise between sheer speed and smooth!

I'm not saying all speed bows are a bear to draw but this Tribute is the cats meow. I haven't shot it through the chrono or even paper tuned yet but set it up with everything but a peep sight. I'll do that after I fire a few arrows through it.

Dennis, I Shot a Tribute last year along with my Allegiance, but I ending up choosing my Allegiance over it. The Guardian is making it a much harder choice.

That's awesome Dennis! Congrats on the bow. I truly hated to sell mine earlier this year but I had to so I could get a guardian. They are very nice bows.

I had an 05 Allegiance, after that I strayed as you know.

But I've seen the light and now I'm back.

Default I got one too

I bought an 07 Tribute this year as well. You will like it. Mine is awesome. If you dont have one already a meanv CSS is an awesome addition and you will be amazed at how dead the bow will feel. I also took off my string silencers after installing it. By the way I think you will like what you see at the chrono. Mine is set at 65# at 28.5" draw 371 grain arrow and she is shooting 291 fps . I love this bow! I hope you enjoy yours as well!

I have an '06 tribute and love it. It has the speed mods on it but they feel pretty smooth to me. I love the draw cycle on that bow.

Ben, I like the Draw cycle of all the Binary cams. I shoot the speed mods on my Ally and of course for 07 the Guardian only has one mod, but it is a touch smoother than the Speed mods on the Ally.

I still have to install the peep and replace the Bowtech string silencers with Jax.
Already replaced the Limb silencers with Limbsavers.

I shot about 15 shots today without the peep. Groups of 5, all were touching each other except one!

This bow pulls so easy it feels like a 60 lb bow.

Tribute is a nice bow. I tried the tribute and Allegiance and decided on the Allegiance because it felt more stable for me. I was a bit worried about clearance in a stand with it but that was nullified on opening day last year...
I could go either way at this point. My Allegiance will be my hunting bow for quite a while. I really like that thing.

Dude she is a real beauty. One thing I must ask is how do you like the limb driver???? I have heard alot of people like them but most of them are in tight with a dealer and I want a review from a non-bias hunter.

It is the quickest, easiest to set up rest I've ever used. Pretty much foolproof.
I will be using it for this upcoming hunting season for sure.
