I owned an r9 last year. Found it to be an excellent bow.
It was fast, good trigger on it to.
I thought it was very well made and I had no issues with it, except the narrowness. I even installed a level on the scope. I always had to watch that level. Maybe I didn't give it enough time, not sure there.
But the bow was excellent.
As for the recall, it has to do with the nocks. All the new arrows should come with the new orange nock.
The sub1 is a nice bow also. But it's heavy.
Then it's slow also. Put a 430 grain arrow in it, your at 335 fps.
An r9 with that arrow is at 375 fps.
Shoot both, see what you like.
