Well, I got a 101st.eace: The Invelvet finish is amazing. It feels kind of like a rubber coating over the riser and limbs. The bow is really fast. I grabbed my hunting shaft which is 400 grains at 65 lbs and shot it through the chrono at 292fps. You do feel where it drops into the valley. I think some minor modifications to the draw stop would help but I also want to get smooth mods and shoot it some more. The BC said 326 at 29". For a speed bow there is almost zero shock and vibration. Not quite the level of the Guardian but close. There is a little noise when it hits the string stopper but not bad at all. I'm looking forward to spending some more time with this bow. Looks like they have a winner again.
