    I currently have an Iron Mace. I've had it for a few months.
    It is a sweet shooter and very fast. IMHO it's speed is equally matched by it's very unforgiving valley. The slightest, and I do mean slightest, creep and it's going. That's starting to cause head games in my shooting.

    As it gets closer to hunting season the short valley has me a little worried.

    Hence my response in another thread about my inability to stop buying bows.

    Nothing bad here. I have never shot one. But all the posts I have read were great.

    I think they are very sweet looking and built bows, Richard did well this year....
    But, yes "no valley" in the cam draw curve is a lil hard on the shoulders.
    That is why I am a fan of the Bowtechs with smooth mods.
    I recently bought the Elite Synergy that I have now and the EZ mods are very similiar to the Bowtechs and the bow shoot great.
    I hope HCA comes out with a smoother version of the current cam, I would probibly own one.

    I hear you. I bought about 5 Bowtechs in a row and have since gone astray.
    Tomorrow I'm thinking of going to a nearby dealer and seeing if they have any 07 Tributes in stock.

    Default Iron Mace

    I've had mine for about 2 months & it is the best shooting bow I've ever owned. Smooth, quiet, fast, & very accurate. The draw is a little harsh but not bad. The let off is adjustable & I have had no problem with the valley. My let off is set at 80%. Shoot 1 & see if you like it, take your checkbook just in case. Joe

    Anybody know the price on the Iron Mace? I've been looking on High Country's web site but can't find an MSRP.

    Call them up and tell them you want to be a "joe". They might sell you one direct at a discount.
