    A thought to consider. Back when Norm Mulhaney did bow testing for Bowhunter Magazine, he tested each bow for efficiency with at least one arrow weight: I think 8g/# of pull and 60# bow @30" draw. He...

    I expect to see another Zeiss in the foreseeable future. It's a German company. They don't move quickly. Likely, some of our concerns (wants) will be addressed. I'd wait. Expect it'll be worth it.
