I want a bow that is comfortable and quiet. Mine isnt the quietest but I have done a lot to help it out and dont have a problem with deer jumping the string. It feels like an extension of me as much as I have shot it, that is the best part.

I have set my bow up for two main things...one, I want to be able to grab it and shoot it without worrying about arrow coming off rest, or anything taking time to do this I have done three things

1)I have a sling that is stiff and stays open so it is easy for me to get my hand in
2) i have gone to a hand held release that stays clipped to my string (no time loss getting on the loop
3) I have gone to a full containment drop away (rip cord) over my old trophy hunter (a wb would work great as well)

Secondly I have set it to be forgiving. I have as much speed as I can, and am shooting the drop away to allow forgiveness in torque from awkward angels. I also shoot a very heavy stabilizer (2 sims moduels behind a vibracheck) the weight reduces how much the bow wants to move...even if Im shaking like a leaf
