Got to shoot a bunch of bows today from various brand names to replace my Switchback that has a bent riser. I chrono'd the Creed with my carbon express 350's. Both the Creed and my Switchy were set to 65 lbs.
Switchback:264 fps with a fully loaded string of 2 catwhiskers, a peep, and a kisser.
The brand new Creed with a BARE string using the same arrow shot 263.
Amazing when you see how ridiculously large the idler wheel and cam are on the Creed compared to the almost 9 year old Switchback , yet, .....not an oz. more of speed. Can't say it was smoother or more dead in hand than the Switchback either.
If anyone out there is ever pondering trading up their Switchback, Drenalin, S2, or Z7 for a newer Mathews, hold your $$$. You're not missing much.
