hey yall, went to a bass pro shops and got to shoot 2 bows. figured i would write up a little review so to say, just to put out my experience with the 2 bows i shot. first bow i shot was the fred bear truth 2 bass pro shops price, bare bow, $699.99 Positives: really really smooth draw quiet really fast comfortable grip good groupings arrow hit the back wall at 30 yards the same time i heard any noise from the bow. no hand shock when i shot with factory setup really balanced, didn't need a stabilizer negitives: the anodized green (IMO) isn't dull enough for a really sunny day in the woods, could give a glare if the sun hits it just right. second bow was the new 2009 PSE bow madness ready to shoot bass pro shops price, ready to shoot includes bow, whisker biscuit rest, 5 pin fiber optic sight, one piece 6 arrow quiver, peep sight, and nocking loop standard "medium" $719.99 Positives: really light, the standard "medium" weighs in at 3.5 pounds, plus accessories. i held the bow out in front of me for quite some time before my arm started to get any sway to it super fast quiet, had the same noise results as the truth 2 where the arrow hit the backwall at 30 yards the same time i heard noise from the bow really aggressive cam, but still a smooth draw. nearly "robin hooded" at 30 yards with the stock settings on the sights great groupings out of the box no noise from the accessories factory installed no shock was noticed really well balanced, could use a small stabilizer, but could shoot all day without one comes in 3 sizes to fit you better, XS "small" standard "medium" XL "large" as size increases the price and weight increases. Above price and weight are for the Standard "medium" size. negitives: the grip, the grip is just too narrow, it cause the bow to wanna torque in my hand at first, had to readjust were the grip sat in my hand to prevent torque. both of the bows are great bows, and i wouldn't mind owning either of them. they both shot great out of the box, its a tough choice on which bow is better, cause that is going to vary from person to person. if anyone has any other questions about these 2 bows, just let me know and i will get back to you. if anyone else has any bow reviews, feel free to post them here. i will have more reviews to come once i can get to another bass pro shops and try out some more. planning on spending a whole day there once i get the money to buy a new bow and shooting every bow they have that will be a fun day.
