    Who cares at this time of the year. If you are looking at what new is coming out guess you don't like the bow you have now. So much so that you are already looking at getting rid of it months before bows are released

    I thought the Answer didnt come out until around the end of Nov or in Dec last year. But they were moving the facility at that time too, so??
    I cut my arrows twice and they're still too short.


    My setup......E35, 60# with a TorqueLess Grip, JBK strings, QAD rest, Tru Glo sights, and a cheap, light weight stab.

    I think people would be happy to just get their Answer's they ordered in their hands right now.

    It was sometime in October last year. I had my Answer in before the end of archery season last year and had it in the woods a few times...

    Yup hunted the Answer last year (the first one my dealer got) and I loved it. Should have kept it, but bought a snow one eventually and it's my fav bow and the only keeper I have!

    Like new cams for the Answer or all models?

    It would be neat if the cams were really good to be able to just get them and put them on your Answer if you already have one.

    Hopefully it involves better strings and cables and less wear from leaning cams.

    Whenever they come out I'm sure they will be smooth. I just traded my 70lb Pure for an 80lb Pure, and hardly can feel the difference in draw. The smoothest bow I've ever shot, and I've shot a few hundred.

    They engineer the system for the little cam lean it gives I would think, but to put strings on that can't take the rubbing, or not to machine the cam wide enough or smooth enough to reduce this can be a problem. Engineers and designers build bows for those of us that shoot, and they don't always understand what we need or have to have in order for it to do it's job. I, personally, want to buy a bow that does not need to have strings and cables replaced to drive tacks if I so choose to shoot targets, don't want to buy a bow that when I call and explain the problem they say it may need to be shimmed more (why oh why did it go out the way it did then), and want to buy a bow that I have 100% complete confidence in at all times. My Answer shoots inside outs regularly, the strings need to be replaced if they would return my voicemails, and hopefully they will still honor the warranty after I wet sand cam edges so I'm not worried about slicing my strings in half. Love my Answer more every time I shoot it, but want a bow I have 0 complaints about as well.
