congrats on the bow I agree with Fly I have not heard anything bad about them either don't get caught up to much about a more expensive bow being better either yes some of the more expenive bows are built better & shoot faster but I can tell you even the lower priced bows are fast enough to kill deer I have friends that will not give up their bows from the 80's & 90's they just know their bows very well, they kill deer with them so they don't want to change. If you take care of your bow & maintain it regularly It could last a lifetime. Keep that string waxed & use a good quality wax not the cheap department store stick & that string will last a long time. I have said before I shoot around 1/2 to 1 dozen arrows every day all year long & wax my string weekly if I am hunting I wax it everytime I come out of the woods I had that bow for 4 years sold it to a buddy & he has had it for 2 years & the string still does not need to be replaced
good Luck with the new Diamond
one last thing like Fly said
"shoot as much as you can daily but stop before arms fatigue. Shooting with fatigued arms will only caz you frustration in sloppy shooting."
not only that but you can do damage to your body Trust me I pulled 5 different muscles & tore 2 muscles almost 3 years ago & my shoulder is still not right & may never be
