I bought this bare bow, it came with a sled which has no slop in it, stock spacers, wrenches and book.

Some pics, stock and barrel have black soft touch. The only negative is the soft touch will get a little worn from the cocking sled.
Not a big deal to me.

Cams are 65% let off and really easy to cock @ 170 lbs
Trigger is very good, and guessing 3 lbs.
As I do not have a trigger pull gauge .
The trigger box has auto safety and also uses blackeagle capture nocks or fire nock Q nocks.

This bow is under 7 pounds feels light with the carbon composite barrel, and balances really well.
For those of you who think the diving board scope mount is flimsy, forget that notion, it is very stout.

Iam going to try and get some shooting tomorrow @ hunting ranges and see how it does.
Iam sure it is going to group very well.

Darton/ Black eagle has a real winner here in this price point. It has attributes of more expensive bows, IMO

Good info, Brian, this bow is on my radar to, also thanks for the real world speeds.. You're right, for the price this bow is hard to beat.. I've had other Dartons with that same scope rail and never had a issue with them.....

Mike, one of the nice things about this bow is it exceeds manufacturer spec'd speeds at 380fps with 400 grain arrow.
This bow does nearly 20 FPS more

It is Jeff, and has a nice coating on it to protect it.

This will be my turkey hunting bow for use In small blinds.
This may end up getting all the hunting time this year.

I know Darton makes those foot stirrups big for that very reason, no problem cocking it with big boots on... I had the original Toxin 100 but it only shot in the 330-335 range, this new one is a lot faster...
My son needed a crossbow so I sent him my Toxin 100, he's had it for a few years now and has had no issue with the soft touch finish on the rail..... Maybe now that they use a sled type cocker that might make a difference... IDK....

Mike , this sled has a tight tolerance unlike some other manufacturers.
That is probably why I have a little bit of wear, it really doesn’t bother me, would rather have a sled that fits like this than a sled with excessive slop IMO.

It is just something worth noting.

On another note, this bow is very quiet and vibration free.

Darton says to use a 22” arrow, but if you are using mechanical broadheads 21” is sufficient IMO.
