i was shoppin for a new bow last winter. i did a lot of reading and asking questions to other bowhunters about a new bow. i had it narrowed down to the diamond black ice or a ross cardiac. is kinda stuck in the pro shop for a while, i couldn't make up my mind. one of the young guys workin in the shop brought me his journey to try. i loved and i thought it shot better than the other 2 i was lookin at. i got it and the next day went back to shoot. shot numbers 4&5 went end for end with the best robin hooded arrows me and everyone in the shop ever seen. what else can i say. it's a great bow.
