I recently purchased a new bow and I shot many bows and many of them were Diamonds. I didnt end up going with one, but I sure did like how the black ice shot. Diamonds are made by BowTech and they make excelent bows. If I was looking for a back up, I would have no problem getting a Diamond. If you are looking for just a back up tho. I would also take a look at the Fred Bear bows. Some of there middle of the road ones (a little cheaper price) are not too bad. I noticed that some of them have a cam system similar to the darton's, which are pretty nice. Its like everyone says tho. shoot til you find one that feels good.
What did you end up buying?
