Re: BowTech Destroyer

Pulls back very hard. The 63lbs felt more like the 74lbs. I pull with my guardian. I didn't think it was worth upgrading to the Destroyer. Not very good reports around here from the people who shot the two in our archery shop. They were the Destroyer 340. Out of all the new Bows they have in the shop(Hoyt, Mathews, Bowtech) the Destroyer rated last. It was a big let down for me I planned on buying the one when it came in.

Re: BowTech Destroyer

MY hunting buddy just got one, sold his new last year PSE, had a guardian before that. HE likes it alot and is working on tune and arrow choice. He will be shooting it today, I'LL have to test it out, we are same draw, we can always shot each others bow, which is great when you are on a trip. Plus I have snow removal at that pro shop, hope it snows alot

Sweet... Let me know what you think. Right now I have a Diamond Stud... Even though I am a stud, I see an upgrade in the future. I would love to get a moose/elk with a bow!

Re: BowTech Destroyer

The draw curve is hard because it shoots fast, guardian is smoothest bow Ive had, but have you shot it and given it a chance?

Re: BowTech Destroyer

sp6X6 is it the 340 or 350? I wonder if there is a difference. I sure would like to hear your opinion of what it felt like to you to draw it back. Maybe I am getting weak, doubtful.

No I probably didn't give it much of a chance. I am quite strong and 74lbs. from a sitting position with little effort my guardian is a easy draw for me. My bow also only shoots 285fps with my hunting arrows though. That is why I planned on upgrading.
