3D is really a game of distance judging. I don't care how steady a shot you are, if you don't get your distances correct you won't score well. A faster, flatter shooting bow will certainly compensate for some error in judgement but unfortunately, you have to remember you'll be cocking and shooting your bow at 40 times on a course. This can get very tiring with heavier poundage bows and adversely affect your shooting. If you're good at judging distance a Vixen would be ideal. I shoot a Phoenix and I don't think at my age :( I would want anything with any heavier draw weight.

Another vote for the Vixen! :wink:

When you do score well with a Vixen, you know you've earned it. It's not as fast or flat shooting as the higher powered models, but if you can hold steady and judge the distances accurately you'll get it done!

My Vixen has given me a great deal of satisfaction against faster bows at shoots in the past. :D
