    Well it appears there is only so much "New" technology you can have for a primitive weapon. Aside from new names and new prices, this year really doesn't offer much. Have we reached the pinnacle of an optimized bow? Short of any breakthroughs in new materials and compounds I think we have...

    So I hear that Obsession is releasing a bow at ATA. I could only pray that they do a shorter axle to axle Final Cut for hunting. I also suspect a Def-Con 7 because they do not have a draw specific cam on a new M7 riser. Anyone have any info?
