    I will tell you what, I have never shot a bow that was more dead in the hands after the shot. Unbelievably quiet and shock free....I thought the draw was a bit better than the guardian, but still far from good. I didn't shoot the marquis by Diamond, but I drew that back too and it was the harshest drawing single cam bow I have ever drawn. Looked very cool though...love that grey! Both bows were about 71 or 72 lbs...

    Still looks weird to me, but I think I would get used to it. I didn't realize they were keeping the Allegiance basically the same with black cams on it...I can't wait until they get the 101st and 82nd in!!!

    Both!! Although, one I had to work at:D The other I can't avoid:p I used to hunt with 90# but after a fall off the side of a tree and a dislocated shoulder among other things I am shooting 60#. Gosh my 28" draw 60# Allegiance packs over 68# of KE. What else could I ask for:cool:

    I have shot the General and thiught that it is A great bow. I think that it draws better than the Guardian but I think that the Guardian is has less had shock even though there is none in either bow. I think that I am going to stick with my Guardian and will get the '08 Connie in Testorosa.

    I shot the General and I was impressed. The draw cycle was a little different but not bad and it was DEAD at the shot. The brace height is very appealing too. It will be a seller for sure. :rockon:
