I shot both bows and the creed xs is a short twin to last year in my opinion, it felt to me to be always wanting to take off with or without me. Was not overly impressed, but it is a nice bow as far as quiet, hand shock, and would fit well in a ground blind or tree stand for sure. The chill r is what I’ ve been waiting for in a bow A LONGER AXLE TO AXLE AND SMOOTH DRAW. It allowed me to relax at full draw and not try to take off, back wall to me is what I like in a bow personally solid but not an abrupt stop. Shot was quiet, hand shock minimal, draw in my opinion is as smooth as any bow I’ ve shot with the speed it has. Draw back for me is the 6 1/8 brace height, that is a little shorter than I like but didn’t shoot like a short brace height bow. I will know more when I get mine in Dec and get to tune it for myself. Ordered a black tactical 28.5 draw with green string and accessories.
