    Well I finally got around to taking some pics of my new Diamond Stud. I am really happy with it and can't wait to shoot some 3d tournaments this Summer. I added a Limb Driver rest, Octane 11.5" stabilizer, and a Sword Centurion sight. The combo is a real tack driver and I can't wait to kill some foam and animals with it!

    I got to shoot a lot today and really like that Sword Centurion site. It is built like a tank and will make a great hunting/3d site. I am sighted in out to 50 yds and plan on doing some longer range shooting tomorrow, if the weather cooperates.

    I am getting 295 fps out of this bow with 390 grain arrows (70 lbs. and 30" draw) and it is super quiet and smooth. I had planned on getting a Bowtech, until I drew the Iceman, Black Ice, & Stud vs. the binary cams. I liked the speed of the Bowtech's but liked the smooth draw of the single cams better.

    I really had a hard time parting with the old Mathews FX but after shooting a buddies Bowtech General, I decided it was time for an upgrade. I should have probably kept the old Mathews but I had a back up bow for years (Mathews Feathermax) that never got any use. I sold it to a young guy that was SUPER excited to get it. It was his first bow and he was pretty stoked about getting it.

    I didn't get to shoot much today but did get it sighted in at 60 yds. I would never shoot at a deer that far but I would like to get it sighted in out to 80 to practice my long range skills. Shooting out that far really makes 20-30 yds feel like a chip shot. Also some of the shoots I plan on shooting this Summer have novelty shoots at some pretty crazy distances.

    It has a 7" brace height, 33 1/4" ATA, weighs 4.1 lbs., 65-80%letoff, 310-318 fps IBO, and has a module that is adjustable from 25-30" without the use of a bow press.

    It is a really slick bow and I have been having a LOT of fun shooting it.

    I wish my son didn't have a baseball tournament this next weekend or I would be headed to Osceola. What time does the shoot start and end this weekend?
