    Obsession's Knightmare Review

    got the bow out and inspected it. very clean. Kolorfusion is fantastic. 29/70. bh and ata on mine were spot on. I will chrono with two diff arrow weights tomorrow hopefully on two different chronos.

    Draw is stiff about 6-9" in and transitions ultra smoothly into a nice valley (not too long) and a SOLID wall. Upon shot it is dead in the hand/ no vibes, and Quiet!!!! for what I call a speed bow (sub 7" BH) this one is amazing. Shot the Black Eagle Deep Impact HARD! I loved the insanity, invasion, and some others, but i think this one fits me better. the grip is nice. I for one like thin grips. so I put some of my Strike plates on there made out of Elk antler marrow. I personally thought it would be hard for me to like this bow cause I really loved the Insanity but i have to say i think overall performance the Knightmare will beat it. I have to see how it settles in after a few hundred shots. but right now TWO THUMBS UP!

    Poundage check:


    Draw length: (need a new ruler! lol!)


    Bow with Stingray Stab, Limbdriver, Sword Centurion Multi-Pin, Rattler Grips:

    Looking forward to your speeds. Do you still have the insanity to compare it to?

    Me too. Really wanted to see it but alas, another Kevin story that never came to fruition. Keep us posted on your bows speeds. Thanks for the review.

    Does this mean there are actually prototype bows made and shoot able for the batwing design?

    Ok I will post pictures and detailed specs this afternoon, but I assembled my knightmare and thru on strings, at 62 pounds 28.5 draw a 305gr. arrow with 17gr. on string (peep, loop, tie nocks, and eliminator button for a kisser)

    Im shooting an average speed of 324.6 fps

    For comparison its 2fps faster than a vector turbo, and 5 slower than a insanity

    The draw is nice it is stiffer than the vector turbo, but SMOOTHE!! The finish is incredible, and the grip is awesome, the riser is about 2 inches longer than the 2012 lethal force, even longer than the addiction riser making it feel stable at full draw.
