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.

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
