    Convince yourself after shooting them! :D

    Ive seen both of them being picked over the other lately. comes down to a preference of sinlge vs split limb, which one is smoother for you, easier to hold, etc etc.

    For sure spend some time with both. You will know then. Personally I like the Creed much better. Just my preference though. Go shoot them.

    Keep in mind guys, that it is not always possible to shoot a bow before ordering one. For example, us lefties don’t often see demo bows in left hand. As a result, we (i.e., lefties) depend a lot on what others have to say about a particular model of bow. Obviously, it’s not an ideal way to make a purchase, but it often is the only reasonable alternative.

    As opposed to Brian (gjarcher), few of us are willing to drive 1,300 miles to try out a particular bow. :shock:

    Just my quick .02..The creed has a smoother draw, not as much of a hump in the draw cycle, better back wall and is more dead in the hand after shot. However, the helium is a bit lighter.

    Well said, The Helim is lighter and maybe a little faster by a couple FPS, Every other aspect is in the Creed’s favor. I would take the Creed hands down after shooting both.

    I also look for feedback on here to help my decision but I also will shoot a right handed bow left handed to get a feel of it.

    Hmm. I thought just the opposite. For me, the Creed got real stiff towards the end of the draw, with a harsh drop into the valley. I didn’t like the draw at all. The shot, however, was as quiet and vibration free as you would want. I really liked the draw on the Helim. For me, it was smooth all the way back. The shot on the Helim was just a tad louder than the Creed, but not by much. And of course, the Helim is lighter.

    Overall, I preferred the Helim. I guess this is why you should try and shoot them if you can.

    I don’t know of a more solid back wall than a limb stop, so how can the Creed or the HeliM have a better back wall than the other?

    i went last night to shoot the creed and try to decide which bow to buy between the creed the helium or the zxt. :!: i shot all 3 side by side and the zxt had the best draw cycle, couldnt find 1 attribute that the helium shined over the other 2, but was still a very nice shooting bow. :thumbup the creed seemed to hold on target the best and with the least amount of recoil. so thats why i bought the new creed. :D only time will tell if i made the right choice or not but i am looking foward spending time with the bow for sure.

    :agree … assuming you don’t own either one.

    The differences are subtle, and mostly stacks up to personal preference. IMHO, too much is made over a couple of ounces of weight and a couple of fps. What it really comes down to is whether or not it feels right to you … and that depends on your shooting style as well.

    I’m the last person to ask for opinions on these short ATA bows … I don’t like them, don’t shoot them, and they don’t interest me….

    … but, Hey! That’s why some doughnuts have holes, some don’t, some are filled and some are not, eh? ;)
