Im going to start with all the tune settings so it will make it easy to look up, as it will be the first post in the thread. From there I will go into some technical stuff, along with questions and answers if anyone has them.

The Revelation 6 is by far my favorite looking Athens to date. Rodney, you guys did a great job this year, making it very appealing to the eye .

The Axle to axle length is right in my wheel house for a pack in bow so love the overall specs and looks.

First thing I noticed off the bat was the grip. It was not to narrow, or to wide, with nice eased round edges and a flat back that does not create any uncomfortable pressure points in my hand.

Finish on the riser is very nice with a couple very small minor flaws on the camo limbs. Overall, very sharp looking.

Draw cycle is similar to some other 2 tracks without any big dump on the backend. Feels a lot like my Impulses I have owned after I do a little tweaking to smooth out the roll over on the backend. The Revelation 6 is just smooth and consistent all the way back. Definitely no complaints there.

Quiet and on par with very little feedback that we are seeing on most quality end bows on the market today.

This bow is proving to be very forgiving for me with lateral nock travel. I'm finding literally no deviation from tail left to tail right with bareshafts at 20 yards.

The Rev 6 is making fast work out at 40 yards for the first 4 arrows of the day

Liking this bow so much I darn near have all my other bows sold

Playing with some different arrows in the wind. My old ACC's are doing quite well at 75 yards

Great review! I have the new Altitude and am super impressed with it. Athens Archery may be a small company but their quality and shootability is on par with the biggest out there.
