    Here's what I did when I found the bow I wanted. I waited untill the 2007 Vectrix was replaced by the Katera as Hoyt's flagship bow. I got one new last year for $425. I'll bet the Alpha Max becomes much more reasonable when it is no longer in fashion to own one. When I can buy a new one for under $500 I'll likely own it. If I wasn't laid off right now I'd probably be looking for a new Bowtech General. I'd buy a used Hoyt and not worry about warranty issues. I can't say the same for the General but it is a sweet shooting bow. If I found one new for $500 I'd tempted to use my Visa card.

    Ya'll think ya'll got it bad? Everytime i decide to look at a new bow....so does mrs. pilot! I end up buying two! She's already tagging aong with me when i go shoot the AlphaMax 'cause she's got her eye on a Bowtech SWAT with the candy purple flames on it! LOL



    J. Blay.....i might end up having to sell you a slightly used but mint condition General at a steal once she gets through shopping

    Just got home with my AlphaMax 32....so much for me talkin you out of it brother!

    Shot both the Admiral and the AM32 back to back with my General. My impression was that the the Admiral was just as good as the AM32 but i decided that it was too much like my General so that wouldn't be any fun.

    Both bows set at 70#, 380 gr arrow, hostage rest, 28in DL:

    General = 290 fps
    AM32 = 306 fps

    What the heck are you doing buying a 70# bow, don't you know that 60# will kill any animal in North America?? No wait thats what everyone tells me when I buy a new bow. But I like the extra P-O-W-E-R.

    CONGRATS ON THE NEW BOW...............so when does Mrs Pilot pick hers up??

    Hahaha...i actually thought about a 60lber but i like power too.

    Mrs. pilot's will be on order shortly....she was droolin over the inventory so they made her leave the store and come back when she could control herself!

    Seriously, she wanted a black one and they didn't have any in.

    I've shot both of them and unless you just have an itch to spend some money I'd stick with teh Tribute, especially if it has the smooth mods on it.

    Hey J.C., don't be a party pooper! This ain't about being practical, realistic, frugal or reasonable. And it ain't about "needin" a new bow either. It's all about daddy wantin a new toy....
