I didn't shoot groups with Dren or anything, but I thought it felt awful at the shot. A lot more hand shock than a reg SB or xt. It wasn't even maxed out! It seems different for eveyone. I have heard a lot of people say they thought it was smooth.

I didn't get far enough along on the Dranalin to experience the hand shock.

The name shock and the sticker shock stopped me long before then...

I have been buying used too. I figure if I save $500 before I get a bad one, and have to spend $100 for limbs, I'm way ahead! Besides, I never keep one long enough for it to tear up!

way I figure it the worst thing that can possibly happen is the limbs explode or cams are damaged right?

New cams are 65.00, new limbs are 120.

so at worst he'll come out a head (185 + 450 = 635.00)

If I didn't buy a new bow, what makes you think I'm gonna buy new limbs or cams?
