    Havent shot the General. But the Gurardian is very nice. I would have to spend some major time with them both on the range to decide.

    I haven't shot both yet, i shot a General the other weekend and really liked it. I like shorter ATA bows but i did notice that it felt heavy. I plan to shoot them side by side before i make a final decision but additional input is welcomed....especially from ayone that has shot or owned both.

    335-345 according to their website....that's pretty smokin! For several reasons though, i just wanna give Bowtech a try. I've shot a Diamond Black Ice and the General and the grip is extremely comfortable to me. Most of the dealers in this area that i have spoken to seem very knowledgeable and helpful and the company itself gives me the impression that they stand for some of the same things that i value personally.

    Not to mention that as much as some think the center pivot design is hideous......I think it looks sweet.
