    If you had Hornet money you would be shooting old used bows like Hornet.....the bow I shot for field last year which will eventually become my indoor/3D bow (which I also hunted with this year) I paid $325 for....the one in the pics is an 09 I found in a shop this spring that was unshot and I got it for about 1/2 price. I paid for that by selling the PE I bought in 2008 USED for $550...sold it for $600 in May and spent ZERO money on that Katera XL.

    I would bet you a new Carbon Matrix that most of you have spent more money on gear in the past year to year and a half then I have in the past 4 years. The only thing I have spent money on or bought new in the past 2 years is a doz X7s, Scott mini Black Hole, CBE scope, and the FV lens I got a couple weeks ago....that's about $400...throw in the the first Katera XL and nocks and vanes I have bought and you still can't get a new bow

    oh I did buy a new Easton quiver last year....but my girlfriend had gotten me a LAS Gift Certificate so I did pay for that either.

    Heck that new CBE on that bow I got as a thank you gift from a friend that I gave a bow to a couple years ago.....

    I own 2 bows....a 2008 and a 2009....and use ONE set of stabs for them both....heck I don't even have another sight for it that's why I am using my field bow for indoors right now.

    I may get an Alphaburner USED to hunt with this summer....I will eventually probably stumble across a good deal on an Alpha Elite and then it will become my field bow and the black Katera will be my indoor bow and the camo one will be 3D/hunting or just 3D. I don't like buying new bows every year nor do I see the need to.

    I really am not a Fan of Short A to A bows with big cams and I prefer a little customer service when needed It's really a Shame! They were an awesome company at one time.

    I am really looking at Hoyt & Maitland. I like the product and the people behind both.

    Hoyt a tough bow to beat. I had a Hoyt pro Elite and we tried to make 28" cam work for 28 1/2". That dont work to well on spiral cams. I may have a fuel cam one of these days. Sure like the Alphaelite.

    Bowtech dropped there best Oklahoma shooter Chad Hilburn for whatever reason I cant figure. He won the semi class at a ASA pro am that year and was the one that really promoted Bowtech in Oklahoma. Go figure! He said he was never given a reason. He shooting Elite now and doing quite well. Great guy and was Bowtech best ambassador here in Oklahoma. Reps here dont really know whos who in my opionion.

    DB, Not the first screwup they have done in recent years. They dropped a local shooter here also last year. He picked up a Hoyt and won National Amateur of the Year. I also got tired of taking care of Customers out of my pocket. I hope they put as much effort into improving Customer Service this year as they did in unveiling their new bow at ATA show. I could go on but will leave it at that. It is Sad to see a company go the direction they have.

    I could No longer promote them or their product with any confidence so it was time for me to move on.

    I really like the Fuel Cam

    I hear ya....the only reason I am using this bow for indoors is because I hadn't shot it yet honestly. If I had set it up for field this summer like I had planned to then I wouldn't be shooting it. I would be shooting the other one.

    Well no it won't work....you can't get an extra 1/2" from a cam....that's why they make a 28.5" cam

    But you actually could have gotten it....you just needed to change the string and cable lengths

    I didnt know you could change strings and cable and get 28 1/2" out of 28" Spiral cam. Have to remember that! But Im pretty sure my next Hoyt bow may be that fuel cam.

    Yep you just have to tweak the string and cable lengths a little...just tell your string maker you need a little more draw or want to pre load your limbs a little.... You WILL NOT be able to run "factory specs" though doing this....

    I liked the Fuel cam...not more then the Z3 on my Katera...but it would work good enough
