    Default Z-28 bows

    Well here it goes. I am going to be as factual as possible and not get into my anger. I was informed today that my order on the z28 will not come. To my understanding they will not send out the old style Z28 with or without cuda cams/revolution cams. The bow is the new style of Z28 which has a different riser, different cams and I am not even sure on the other stats but is definitely slower and no option of cuda cams. I am going to talk to Lonnie or Kristen tomorrow.

    Two things. Its slower. And now the draw length is more correct to specs which means its even more slower. I ordered a Z28 with cuda cams over a month ago. I was looking at an IBO of over 336 fps with the 8" brace height. The terms were accepted and payed in full. In my eyes the Z isnt improved actually I see it as a complete setback.

    Unfortunately I wont and I wont accept anything less than I ordered. I will lose speed with what I am shooting now as opposed to gaining some speed with brace height.

    I wanted the brace height with the speed. I allready have a bow with a 7.25" brace height.

    The bad thing is I have no way of testing out how the new Z fits and I get differing opinions on how the cams run, even contrary to how they fit me.

    You were misinformed that the speed of an 08' Z 28 @ 27" would be 336 IBO?

    The Z's ran about 3/16" long, this is why there is a new cam on the 09's, so they are exact on the draw.

    Hi Kevin......no. IBO is all set at 70lb, 30" draw, 350 gr. arrow. I know this. When I say IBO it is with those standards.......I was not misinformed as you list the Z at 336. Sorry you misundertood something I stated.

    On the draw length on the Z28 I shot how did a 27" draw fit me as I normally shoot at 26" draw? I have been confused about this from day one. Can you clarify this? It would be greatly appreciated. With the new Z would I shoot at 26" or 27" and what is the IBO?

    By the way what are all of the specs including the weight of the new z?
