    View attachment 100402 E237C60D-41F5-4438-B695-B5775720569C.jpeg Wow.. very smooth draw.. did not expect it to be smoother than the elite but it is for sure. Set at 61.72#. 26.5 dL I shot it several times until dark and I’m shooting great out to 20-25 yds. Past that I get a little inconsistent.. have to get used to the bow and the grip.. much different than the elite. The tech forgot to put the monkey tails on the custom string so there is a bit of vibration and twang at the shot. Overall I’m very pleased!

    Sweet setup. I enjoyed shooting the Vertix. Very smooth and at the shot was dead in the hand for me. Enjoy it!

    The one I shot did not have them so I can't give you an idea if those would be any added help. When I shot it I also felt near zero vibration. And it did not have a stabilizer. Is everything nice and tight on the bow? Do you shoot it with the quiver on?

    I believe everything is tight. I do not shoot with a quiver

    I think so, maybe its cuz my bow is older and less efficient but I notice a huge difference with them in or out

    I don't think the monkey tails are worth walking across the street to get. That said you should not have much if any feedback out of that bow.

    I put em on myself.. It did seem to quiet down a bit. There is just a tad bit of vibration and twang but that's also me listening for it and the one right behind the bow so I will hear it..
