    2011 Hoyt Carbon Element vs 2012 Bowtech Insanity CPXL

    Hi guys, was after the opinions of what I can only assume is a pretty small group of people; those of you who've used both of the bows listed. I'm quite interested in a longer ATA bow and something that has a slightly longer valley, and most importantly less of a tendancy to creep out of its letoff like the 2011 Element running a #2 cam (also does the #3 cam feel much more different in terms of valley?). I know a lot of people like that in a bow, but I find it really just wants to go on me, and although its not a violent let down, its just something that I find unappealing. So leaving all bias towards manufacturers aside. How to these two bows compare in this aspect of their draw cycles? I'm having trouble finding a CPXL to shoot.

    Yeah good thanks, loved it but found the wheel obstructive to my tight spot quiver, so im selling it on with the whole package.. But if it doesnt sell im just as happy to keep it.. How much creep do you find your CPXL allows you? wide enough valley for a fast bow? And is the let off nice and comfortable so you can hold a shot for a while?

    Yea mate that's the reason i'm selling the 60 and keeping the 70 because its so easy to draw back the 60 feels like 50 and the 70 feels like 60!

    I have a rye neck and can't pull high poundage anymore repeatativly! So this bow is awesome for me easy to let down aswell.

    I have had the 60 for 3 weeks and taken it to 2 shoot's for a second and a win in the open class at 3daaa shoots!

    It aims very well, draw's easy and you can relax while aiming no problem!
