    2004 LX 29” 59 LB. 340 gr. @ 282 f.p.s.
    2007 SB 29” 59 LB. 340 gr. @ 281 f.p.s.

    The LX is the only bow I’ve ever kept over two years and I’m not getting rid of it. It’s fast, accurate, balances well, and is basically a killing machine :D

    The SB I ordered last Dec. and it arrived this year. I had a XT and it lacked the stability of my LX. Why not a Dren? It was tough because I :X speed and the Dren is fast, but I wanted a heavier bow and the SB was heavier, I’ve already added a carbide damper for more weight; plus, the SB has been around and I knew it was a proven choice. Hopefully it will be my new companion in a ground blind this fall (the LX is a tight fit there).

    Switcback LD it’s forgiving, great smooth draw, and accute

    I love shooting a bow that has these qualities

    I do shoot my Fred Bear Flare on occasion, and find
    that at 60# it’s tuffer to draw than my 70# LD

    Plus the long brace height reduces the length
    of the actual draw.

    Chas[/quote:35unp458]

    How does brace height affect draw length? It makes for a shorter power stroke for the arrow but just can’t see how it would change your draw length.

    someone explain!

    I suppose when you say limb quality you mean not to make it seem like every other manufacturers lmbs are sub-par.

    As for accurate IBO speeds, I don’t think there is one company out there that is 100% accurate.

    Speed what are you getting from your Vulcan… :?:
