    What is the real world difference in the shorter riser height in the Chill’R and my MR7?  More forgiving or less?  I know the brace height is shorter on the Chill’R but I owned an M6 and was OK with it.  Just wondering why they’re going shorter on the risers but making the limbs longer to get the 33” ATA.

    How much shorter is the ChillR compared to the MR7? I’m guessing around 3.3″ shorter. Shorter might mean a stiffer or stronger riser and lighter weight bow. Also to get the BH and speed out of this design, considering this cam design, they could not go the length of the MR7. If they built it like the MR7 the speed is not going to happen. AVS cam on the MR7 is faster than the Dyad AVS cam. So the bow design has to change to gain the speed. Now the string angle on the ChillR should be about the same because of the ATA is the same. And that should make it about the same in shooting the two except for the cam draw feel. The Chill DYAD cam felt easier than the AVS when I shot it. The short BH is going to be factor only by the shooter’s form, the better it is the better it will perform, like an bow.

    Interesting.  Thanks.

    Guess I’ll need to shoot it.
