    Nope, 28.5”. It’s a beast. Only 300 grains in arrow and broadhead.

    When I drew my bull tag, I upped my arrow weight. I was shooting a 385 grain arrow at 60 pounds. Shot 275 on chrono. They are fast bows.

    The destroyers put out really good speed at lower draw weights I have seen it in person I don’t doubt your speeds a bit

    Yes, and very quiet, and a dead stick in the hand... I love my bow.

    I think the destroyer is bowtechs best to date. Still the best draw cycle of any dual/hybrid cam bow I have ever felt.

    I keep two bows up and running, my halon at 70#’s and another at 50-60 depending on turkey season and how my shoulder is acting. No shame in shooting less poundage. Just get the job done...

    I shoot 60 now. With today's bows, no real reason to shoot more than that. I'm 56, and 60 is just fine.....

    Better to feel like a little girl for a short while than a one armed man for the rest of your life. Listing the bow for sale because you broke something for good.. ha.
    You dont want that.

    My current hunting bow is at 76# I shoot every day all year long to be able to shoot that weight comfortably I use a one pin sight and can shoot 0-32ish yards same point of impact it really eases my mind not having to worry about yardages most of the time.

    Bowonly what bow you shooting that’s a lot of poundage to reach 30 yards with one pin ( not knocking ya set up) I’m 52 and shoot 65 pounds with a PSE Xforce 6 and I only use one pin to 30 , 29” draw but I’m sure mine isn’t near as fast and I’d say you rock their world when it smacks em

    Right now a Mathews vertix 6in brace height my hunting shafts are 488 grains with a 100 grain point and 140 grain brass inserts it’s a really hard shooting rig the way it sets i have a switchback setup at 60 pounds with as a backup and to use when cold weather sets in bought it new in 05 and yet to find a bow I shoot more accurately

    Gotta love the bowtechs. And the destroyer is a shooter for sure.

    I left the heavy poundage bows bout 5 years ago. Now I’m between 55-60lb weight. I could still shoot 75-80lb but it wasn’t comfortable anymore. I never was or will I be a speed fan. I like a heavy arrow.
    Most important aspect of a bow to me is the quietness. Heavy quiet arrow that packs a punch.
