    Well, the guy at the shop made a mistake. The Carbon Knight was $649, not the Experience. However I did get a 2013 D350 LE for under $700 out the door. I still think the D350 has the best draw cycle of any current bows. I will have to pick up a FLX guard silencer to take care of the bit of vibration but I am curious about shooting it next to the CPXL. I am sure that they (D350) will be gone soon and I just can't pass on the deal for a new one.
    Ironically, I see that there is also a used #70 Specialist for sale on here now as well. I really like those bows as well. I view them as a longer D350, but the 65% let off and less than parallel limbs. Unfortunately I cannot afford the Specialist as well.

    Specialist can be set for either 65% or 75%. I personally think mine feels like a longer version of my D340 too.

    The limbs are the same as the 340 and 350, just more per-loaded. 70lbs Specialist limbs are 60lbs Destroyer limbs.

    I like the draw on the Destroyers better than any of the center-pivots too.

    Unfortunately there are too many good bows available. D350 with good speed, proven accuracy and nice draw cycle. (There is a reason customer demand brought it back) CPXL with longer a.t.a, nicer draw cycle for 30" and above as compared to the CPX, split limbs and still good speed. Experience with a bit shorter bow, split limbs and reasonable speed but dead in the hand right from the box.
    All with the B.O.D. cams that allow fine yoke tuning.

    Carbon Invasive with ADJUSTABLE brace height 5 1/4, 6, 7 IBo is 373, 361,350 respectfully with 3 ata models 30" 33" 36". DW is also more adjustable 50-70 or 60-80. Also new finish option black with your choice of red on gray or gray on red honeycomb design "like on the insanity limbs"super imposed over whole bow. Because of all the options and all the orders they are expecting this will be the only offer from them 2014.

    If this comes out I will have a new bow as well.The only reason I got rid of my Experience was it's weight.

    It will no doubt be something with 7" brace height. Most of the insanity buyers couldn't make the transition to the 6"er and sold them as soon as the experience came out. It will be interesting to see what it will be. They can't make any improvement on the experience, Its already top notch.

    Ive heard the carbon bow is cheaper to make, so i would expect to see more carbon bows from them. Hopefully they can do something to make their carbon bows less loud, shot it the other day it was really loud. The D350 is almost sold out so if you still want one I would hurry and order it. I think you can only get it in a 60lbs now. It would also be good to see them update the heartbreaker.

    I want to see a carbon version of the invasion dimensions, but put the brace at 6 1/2". I like the carbon bow pretty well but the more I played with it, the grip has to be a little better for me. Seems too square and a hair too deep.

    I think the insanities will drop from the lineup as will the specialist.

    The only ones staying I think are the experience and carbon knight.

    I believe they will do an early release of a new price point bow.

    Flagship will be a 6" Bh carbon bow around 31" ata and 365fps

    I think they will also release a 35" ata with a 7-1/2" brace experience....

    My local shop was not impressed with the Experience when it first came out because they said they thought it was too heavy. However, if they came out with a carbon type Experience I think it would be tough to beat.....

    Tell them to start lifting weights if they think the experience is heavy.
    After shooting mathews, hoyt, pse, bear, new breed, bowtech, and mission i finally picked one.

    I hope for a carbon invasion. They are welcome to lower the brace to 6.5 and 348 ibo

    The Experience isn't exactly a light bow. I don't need to lift weights for any bow but it is heavier than several other bows.

    I know most of the shop guys got used to shooting the Hoyt carbon bows. So the Bowtechs felt heavy in comparison I guess.

    There are certainly heavier bows then the Experience but it is not the lightest either. I didn't mind the weight too much when I had one.

    You must no have had to carry it too far. I carried that bow around for a week, thought my arm was going to fall off.

    Sure would be nice to have a Bowtech bow with a draw cycle like the ole" commander.

    For 2014 I hope Bowtech comes out with a Carbon, center pivot bow with a smooth draw cycle and adjustable letoff. 80% is just not for me.

    335IBO is just fine for speed

    That's true, it is, but it's also lighter than several other bows.

    Personally, I'm not going after sheep and goats. Even in the midst of my geezerdom, I can still hold up a bow of that weight.

    If I can tote around all this weird crap that's growing around my waist, the bow shouldn't be a problems for those of us not packing in for 15 miles.
