Shot The Beast last night after stringing my own string and putting the leeches back on. Chroned at 345, that's down by about 10 fps. Must have shortened the string a twist or two extra putting on the leeches. Don't seems to do much for noise so they are coming off tomorrow. This thing really is accurate and smokes about as fast as I need it to be.(Normally don't shoot live targets much past 30 yards). Been playing with a 175 Phoenix lately, really noticed the difference in trajectory. It's a nice bow but about 6" more drop at 40 yards than The Beast. It chorned at 275 with the factory string. It'll get a 28 strand Flemish next with a 4" serving.
