    I don't need to read it to tell you that they would use epoxy in this mat and no way would it be plastic but whatever you say. Still makes no sense to me.

    Fair enough, but perhaps other people are misinformed.

    Going of speculation alone....I'm going to go out on a limb and say its not even in the same ball park as the Hoyt carbon bows. I would like to shoot it and make my own decision and I look forward to see where this will take bowtech for their 2014 flagships...

    Might just want to read up on what plastic actually is and how many varieties are. You are aware that just about every epoxy resin is plastic.

    Bowtech has one of the best cam systems out there for fine tuning to perfection with the overdrive binarys. Why they chose to use this system on this bow is beyond me.

    Is it me or does it look like the cam has a limb rather than a string stop for draw stop? I'm liking this design so far. New, more modern material, is where companies have to move to improve; I hope this material, if capable, moves over to the center pivot design of their line.

    Yeah its a limb stop. I am trying to figure out what those red things are where the limb splits to the cam.

    Yeah, that's what I need to do. A degree in Chemical Engineering and I need to read up on epichlorhydran and bisphenol A reactions. Thanks for the tip.

    Why can't you handle the honest truth. I'm not the one that said no way it would be plastic. Yet that is exactly what it is.

    You know as well as I do, that reference has nothing to do with plastic & carbon...or this thread for that matter.

    I think bowtech went down hill when a gun company bought them . I think in 08-09. they only offer one good (great) bow in their line up.
    as far carbon i'll stick the the true guys (hoyt) when i'm ready to buy a true carbon bow.

    The riser looks a lot closer to a Destroyer 340 riser than it does a Mathews. The string stop is very similar to the one they put on the Experience. Are you just pulling this stuff out of nowhere or what?

    I guess flex guards, Center pivot , and OD cams (not gona call 'em binaries) aint all they were cooked up to be.

    Its a mid level bow, you don't put top of the line options on a mid level bow.
