Well........JMO.....i don't shoot at any archery ranges, nor 3-d shoots. I am strickly a hunter. I enjoy shooting the longer ata bows, but i don't like them for hunting especially in a tree, or a ground blind. I had a Monster 6 last year, and it was a nightmare luggin around, and treestand hunting. I was having to cut more cover limbs just so i could get it back in the clear. I will be testing these bows in our shop, and the Hunter is lookin real good for my style of hunting. I am also very interested in the Pulse! I just gotta have a Pulse in Ninja Black.........that thing is awesome lookin! The Pure is definately gonna be a shootin machine, but it will not be for me!
