Wanting some honest opinions here guys!! I have had an 06 Allegiance, which was one of my favorite bows ever. I know the 08 is a slightly different design, but still pretty much the same. I have owned several Hoyts, but never a Katera. I will be using the bow for hunting mostly, maybe a couple 3D shoots......

Input is appreciated!!!!!!

Both great bows ... I love the Ally, still doing most of my killing :D

Can't go wrong with either.

hard to go wrong with the buttery smooth draw of the z3 cams yet nice 330 ibo speed. . . I love the katera plus they are dirt cheap right now

IMO the Allegiance, but both great bows and can't go wrong with either. So, whatever fits you better! Good Luck and Have fun shooting!

I'm going with the Katera...I've owned both and I liked the Katera better myself. I think the Z3 cams were some of the best cams Hoyt ever did.

gotta vote ally. only difference in 06 and 08 is grip is smaller and bow is lighter and uses different mods. I like my 07(same as 08 except for cam color) better than my 06. Katera just don't fit me well but is a good bow never the less. good luck whichever you pick.:darkbeer:

The Ally is a nice bow, but the Kat is one of the all time greats!

Ive owned an 07 ally and it was a good bow but if I had to choose it would be the Katera hands down

I have shot the katera.I loved the draw,speed etc.I didnt like a 6in BH ..I steer clear of under 7in BH..Thats just my personal opinion.I have not shot the alleg..But it appeals to me on paper spec wise

katera

I also have owned both. Both are great bows but for smoothness, speed and built like a tank-katera hands down!

For me, the Ally would get my vote as it felt better and I have never liked hoyt's risers.

I bought an 07' Allegiance and have went through 3 other bows trying to find one I like better. My latest is the most expensive bow I have ever bought, but I still think the Allegiance will be heading to the woods with me this fall? The 07 and 08 are the same except cam color. That being said, I really liked the Katera and believe it is a really good bow. I don't think you have a wrong answer here, both very good bows.
