My lovely wife got me a hoyt Katera for Christmas and so far I love it all except for one major issue. I was shooting with a few guys yesterday and it locked up at full draw. I had one of my friends pull the arrow off and with the help of another hold the bow. Scared the heck out of me being tied to it at full draw for about ten minutes not knowing what was going to happen next. One of my friends knowticed that my top cam had turned past the drawstop and when he pushed on the buss cable the bow nearly ripped my arm off slamming my right hand into the cable guide rod. It basically dry fired while my release kept me tied into it and caused a bit of carnage. My meta peepsight was crushed, the leach in the string shot out somehow, and a few strands of the string were cut by the peep sight. Made me pretty stiff for a few days as the whole right side of my body got yanked pretty good. I called hoyt today and they are going to fix everything. Just as a word or warning, if anything goes wrong with a bow take yourself out of harms way and get free of it. That is advice one should hear at a Bowhunter safety coures. It was stupid of me to keep my release on and stay hooked to the bow but I was afraid of it dry-firing if it let loose. In retrospect if it would have fired and damaged anything I think hoyt would have stood behind it. Having a press near by would have been nice but wasn't an option. I cannot wait to get her fixed up and shooting again. It shoots like a dream. Quiet and plenty fast. If you have a Hoyt Katera take a good look at the draw stop pegs on the top cam and see where the string hits it. Mine is in tune and only about half the string hits the very end of the stop. If you draw just right it will slip past and lock things up. When the cable goes back things get violent. It sounds like hoyt knows about this problem and is fixing it. Anyone else have this issue?
