    I owned a '05 Diamond Victory for about 2 years and foolishly sold it in favor of a Bowtech Allegiance (who owns Diamond).
    That Victory was a great shooting bow.

    I shot a Diamond Black Ice this past Spring and it's sweet... Better than the victory, but maybe not better than the Allegiance. I'd have to shoot them side by side to really get it. Single cam vs. cam+1/2... Different feel...

    Just shoot as many bows as you can and decide what feels best for you, personaly. I own a Botech and a Mathews... They can all co-exist in my arsenal if they feel and shoot good as far as I'm concerned...

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe you said in another thread that your drawlength was 27". If that's the case, I would consider the Triumph, also. The Triumph and Rapture are very similar. They share the same cam, and are the same axle to axle length, but the Triumph has a more reflexed riser, which gives it a brace height of about 6 3/4" versus 8" for the Rapture. I don't think the shorter brace would be much less forgiving, and would net you 10-12 fps more. Either bow would be a great choice, though.

    It's better to over analyze before you buy than regret your choice after you buy...
