Well I purchased a bear truth two years ago. never had any problems. This year i have dropped it from 20 feet up and fallen out of my treestand on it......yes I am clumsy. Well After I fell on top of it I stood up and shot a doe! I know I know I probably should not have shot it because if something was off and I injured the deer. but point is I got her. This bow has been through a lot and I have never experienced a problem. I recommend the bear to anyone now and they have a customer for life!!
