Joined: 4/25/2008Chill or Creed? I am going to try to go tomorrow to get a new toy. I will be shooting 70 lbs, 28″ on draw with about a 410 grs.. Which of the two do you think will be quieter?? Also how about some ideas on speeds with this set up for one of the two? I have a 2012 Answer, great shooting bow, just seem a little too loud for me..
Joined: 10/22/2007My judgment is that the Creed is the quieter of the two bows. I have set up more of the Creeds than the Chills, probably 4 to 1, and one of the reasons I prefer the Creed is that it seems quieter. The Chill is also quiet but not as quiet IMO.Mathews S2 / Copper John 4-pin / QAD HD LD / Worlds Best Strings / 808 Bowslings / Easton Bloodlines
Joined: 12/10/2006I shoot the Chill with FMJs 400 approx 407 grains when I purchased I shot both back to back IMO the Chill was quieter although that wasn’t the main reason I purchased the Chill , wanted a ” different” bow then what I own presently own the Z7, DXT . Also the the Chill was a little faster and I felt a smoother draw cycle. Which ever you choose you won’t be disappointed
Joined: 12/21/2010You will have to shoot them both and then decideI shot both with a shop arrow (no name or info on it) but felt very lite weight compared to mine that are around 450 grains. Anyway the arrow can make it sound different and the Chill will be louder with a lite weight arrow. I know from shooting my MR7 with some 360 grain arrows compared to my regular ones and even heavier arrows and with my poor old ears I can hear the difference.
When I shot the Creed and the Chill with the same arrows they both were very quiet and they had nothing on them but a rest and a D-loop.
Location: OregonTwo great bows.
I shot both these bows for around 30 minutes when the Pro Shop first got them in.
Going back and forth between arrows I did notice little differances between them in the way they shoot. I am a Solo cam guy and maybe I will always be one. But, wow the Chill pressed for the lead between them hard. Both are such awesome bows.
If you press me for which one is more quiet I would say….Creed. But really the differance was very hard to tell.
Let us know what you decide…
And….PICS!!!! We want PICS of that new bow.The history of the bow and arrow is the history of mankind............Fred BearI agree with previous post. Both are great bows! To me they both were equally quiet. The difference for me was how solid the back wall was on the Creed. The Chill has a slight spongy feel to it and some people like that. The Chill is a tad faster and both bows are dead in the hands. For me the draw cycle was smoother with the Creed.
I am loving my Creed. I have been shooting for 25 + years and I can honestly say I have never been this accurate. You can’t go wrong with either one. Have fun shooting them and let us know what you get.

Joined: 7/12/2004I greatly preffered the Chill over the Creed principally for the draw cycle. I actually like the Helium draw cycle better than the Creed. It’s such an individual choice, you have to try them. I will say that the Chill is a cannon and a tack driver.

Joined: 9/4/2010Chill hands down is a lot quieter. Did this test at my local proshop using the same arrow though both bows at the same poundage. Chill had a better and smoother draw cycle and less hand shock as well.The Creed is quieter. I’ve done decibel level testing on both bows with similiar setups. The Chill is still a very quiet bow, though.
If you’re looking for the quietest shot, the easiest way to go about this is to shoot a mid to heavy-weight arrow.
