I'm not sure the local range is officially open, but they let me shoot.  I was the only one there.
I was finally going to get to shoot my two newest bows at a real range, and not my living room, even if the local range is pretty short too.
When I ordered these two bows, there was a sale on ready to shoot target arrows.  I took an educated guess and ordered a dozen each of three different spines.  They are all set up for bows of similar poundage.  Longer arrows had a stiffer spine, etc.
I took six of one of them to the range with me, so I shot the same arrows from both bows.  Both bows are the same poundage.
I shot the Oak Ridge Ash first.  I was all over the place, but I shoot instinctive, haven't shot for nearly two years, and this was a new bow.  So I wasn't terribly surprised.
Then I shot the Galaxy Ember and suddenly the groupings got way better.
It may not be entirely the bows.  I maybe did a better job of locating the nock on the Ember, or the arrows could have suited the Ember better.  But one of the reasons I ordered the Ember after ordering the Ash is I thought the shelf and sight window were shaped especially well.  I felt there would be little chance of fletching contact.  And they raised the price of the Ash so that it is now the same price as the Ember, making the Ember an even better deal.
My feeling is that if you are looking for a value priced, take down, reflex/deflex hunting bow, you could do far worse than the Galaxy Ember.  At $200, it is a good shooter.
In my opinion the Oak Ridge Ash is a better looking bow, but form follows function.
