We fitted each bow with a Trophy Ridge Whisker Biscuit rest and React sight. Next, we set the draw weight at exactly 60 pounds and the length at 28 inches. At Hinton Archery, we measured noise with a decibel meter and speed by shooting a 356-grain arrow through a chronograph, taking the average of three shots in both cases. Finally, we hit the range for two days of shooting to evaluate draw cycle; shock and vibration; balance and handling; fit and finish; and accuracy and forgiveness. We scored each category from 1 to 10 and doubled the key ones—speed, draw cycle, and accuracy and forgiveness—for a total possible score of 100 points.
