      My brother just bought one. The dealer advised that Bowtech would not let them sell it for less than the price they set 949.00. I’ve been around bows for awhile seeing Pse lead the way in the speed department. The Cpx is very fast. Once you get it to the let off you just can’t believe the energy stored w/ a 80% let off. Amazing in not seeing the arrow leave the bow.

      I want to Know what the quietest bow of the past 5 years has been. I heard a Bowtech General a couple of years ago and the arrow hitting the target a 30 yards was louder than the release. Fast is good but quiet is better, if the deer can’t hear it, they won’t jump. I have had them try to jump when hunting with a 44 mag. at 1000 fps. No bow will ever match that! Of course I know they may have been reacting to seeing the recoil more than the sound but the fact remains, they are FAST! We do all we cna not to be seen, or smelled, Doesn’t it make sense also not to be heard?
