    Which is Quieter? Obsession Knightmare Vs Hoyt Carbon Element G3? Vids Inside!

    A good friend of mine just got a new Hoyt Carbon Element G3 and we decided to do a head to head test to see which bow was quieter. My Obsession Knightmare vs his Hoyt Carbon Element G3.

    The Hoyt was put on my draw board to ensure it was timed properly before the Hoyt fan boys say "there's no way that Hoyt was tuned properly."

    Both bows were shot with a 436 Gr Carbon Express KV.

    You be the judge.....

    I don't even have to open those links up to say the Obsession won that duel.....I've owned a lot of Hoyts in the past and none of them were even close to my Knightmare when it comes to quietness. This just might be the quietest bow I've ever owned with nothing on the string but a loop & a peep.

    I just had a carbon Hoyt shooter shoots bow before the super bowl today. Needless to say he sold his bow and is buying a obsession.

    Nice......KM was quieter for sure and looked like it didn't move after the shot much.

    Having shot them both it is quieter and not as stiff either. I think the G3 is even stiffer tha the KM. Once you get it back I actually like the RKT cams way better than the ones they had two years ago but the KM still has way more LO, valley and speed. Only like 1/2 inch less brace too.

    I asked elsewhere but I will ask here....

    What is that on the down cable of the Hoyt? Surely both bows would have the same rest for a "test" like this...

    If one has a biscuit and the other a drop away the videos show nothing but two good bows...

    The KM has a LD Micro Elite

    I think QAD's are noisier than the LD rests I've used. The QAD's make a distinctive sound on the shot when it hits the shelf. That's been my experience anyways.

    Both bows are quiet, but from the vids the KM may have a slight edge.

    That is why I saw the cord on the cable is because I recognized the sound...then looked for it.

    I agree with you. I hear it too, but both bows were pretty darn quiet from the vid. Hard to tell until you hear and se it for yourself live in color.

    Oh, I believe both are quiet. Just recognized the sound. I want a review of the LDME being shot beside a LD original. I love LD originals except the normal "twang".

    The micro elite is a sweet rest. I believe a lot of the noise you're talking about comes from the actual cable. I know on previous setups I put a bowjax string silencer on it and took it out.
