    but I may slip over and shoot one anyhow,,,,,,my hoyt's limbs are starting to show some serious issues (beginnings of delamination),,,,,,Think the wife will believe that??
    Sounds like a safety issue to me, if your wife loves you she'll encourage you to buy a new bow before this one blows up on you! LOL

    I love my defcom 7. It's similar to my Elite in feel but FAST! It draws a little rougher but has the same back wall. When I switched to my Obsession I changed a lot of stuff (new style release, longer stabilizer, etc.) so I don't know if it's the bow or a combo but I'm shooting better than I ever did even out to 50+ yards. I really like the obsession and the color combos you can get make them look awesome. I went with Black/Kryptek Typhoon since I had a choice. First brand new bow I'd bought in a loooonnggg time.

    Go shoot one, you'll probably end up bringing one home.

    exactly WHY I don't go shoot one!!
    "Conservation is a state of harmony between men and land... you cannot love game and hate predators; you cannot conserve the waters and waste the ranges; you cannot build the forest and mine the farm. The land is one organism. Its parts, like our own parts, compete with each other and co-operate with each other. The competitions are as much a part of the inner workings as the co-operations. You can regulate them—cautiously—but not abolish them."

    I have a DefCon 6 and I love it. Came from all hoyts too. Jonathon Brown of Boneyard Archery in GBoro is an expert on these bows and really tunes them correctly. If you want the elite shootability with turbo style speeds get any Obsession.

    Whats your draw length? I have 2 here I'd let you shoot, and if you like one, take it home for a deal. You can't beat that.

    That rules out one of them. Not sure any of them will go to 31" even with mods.
