    The only thing I do not like about the truth is the grip. Can this be changed?

    I am looking at buying either of these bows. 490$ yank dollars for the code and 500$ for the truth. Should I spend the extra 10 bucks? LOL

    Just wondering,... It would be GREAT if I could put say a Martin grip on the truth. But I dont know.

    Thanks

    Thats the funny thing about shooting in AB,

    WE HAVE NO BLOODY ARCHERY SHOPS WHERE I LIVE.

    Besides.
    I dont mind doing the trade and buy deally.
    I do it with ham radio and cam out with an awesome station.

    I dont know... From the pics that I have seen and the vids....
    The ONLY thing I dont like is the two peice wood handles

    I like a little longer ATA so I would probably go with the Code, but that's just me.

    I'd like to get a look at both of them close up before I made up my mind though. I have liked the looks of that Code since they came out. If I was into single cams, I might would have to give one a hard look. ;)

    Good luck with which ever you choose. I've seen good reviews on both. :thumb:

    okay well thanks guys...



    One more question on the Truth Can it be possible to replace the handle?
    from a two peice wood to something softer?

    I have the Code, because it goes to 31" draw. The truth seems nice, except for the ugly strings. :biggrin1: . You could take the side plates off and wrap the grip with one of those limbsaver wraps, I guess.

    you'll have to change the draw length module to get to 28". they run about $12.

    the cam has about 1/2" of adjustment but you need a bow press to be able to change it. any Bear dealer should have the module you need.
