To me … it retains the negatives of a vertical bow and omits some of the major advantages of a crossbow. It's all well and good if you're spot & stalk and standing up to shoot, but sitting in a blind or a treestand? A crossbow can rest on the shooting rail, Bog-Pod, or shooting bench and sit it there for 30 minutes waiting for that perfect shot. The In-Line Vertical? Arm extended holding the weight? Typical clearance issues of a vertical bow in a blind or treestand? Plus you have the offset optic and reintroduction of archer's parallax because there's no crossbow rail or barrel. All with the low limb weights and arrow speed limitations? The guy Jeff Goff is a great guy near as I could tell over the years, and the bow is pretty neat; but to me it's a fun, novelty bow.If.....they have higher than natural curiosity.
I could not have said it better. I owned one as well and your review is SPOT ONI owned one. Vertical is easier to maneuver in a tree. It's not terribly fast. 325 fps but that's with a real light arrow. Uses regular arrows and nocks. Awkward to shoot lefty. Scope is a little offset so poi moves left to right a bit if you zero it. Alternatively, you can sight it in offset so you're always aiming a bit to left or right. Easy to change strings. No press needed. You can adjust weight of limbs. I found it wasn't terribly accurate...although probably better when you're purely offhand. Mixed bag. I ended out selling mine.
