Congrats! The èclipse is an awesome bow that will last a lifetime. It's the same speed as the Vortex..

Same bow, it just an all faux carbon graphite coated Vortex. It's a good solid bow!

Congratulations on the new bow I always likes the finish on those stocks very sharp looking, so much nicer looking than black in my opinion , you have to see it in person to appreciate the color detail.

One of the Best looking bows made!! Had two or three of those and sold them each time after testing and
trying different string and arrow combo's. Should of kept one for the wall I think. Very nice purchase. Have fun and post some pics of shooting or hunting with it.

What was the best string a fff , did you find it was a nice bow to shoot and true, I think it is the same as a vortex (I had one and wish I didn't sell it) but the vortex was 97 kinetic and the eclipse is 87 cant figure that out everything seems to be the same specs any thoughts

There is typo on one of them. Kinetic Energy is calculated by speed & weight. I don't have the formula in front of me, but the two bows produce the same speed so something is not right with the KE.

the formula for finding kinetic energy is arrow speed times arrow speed times total arrow wt. divided by 450 240 example 330x330x375 divided by 450240 =90.
