Don't know a thing about this bow but looking at the picture, those cams would make me hesitant to consider it a finger bow. FWIW

The Hoyt Montega, great fingers bow and has Hoyt wheel cam on it. I think the last year they made them was 2009 or 2010.

Accu wheels, not cams, like those found on the Hoyt Vantage LTD, do yourself a favor and try one of these bows, you wont believe how smooth and forgiving these bows are.

BOHO, what type of archery are you into?

Eric's Vantage is a fantastic target bow, but it would be way too slow for me as a 3D / Field competitor.

I'm lucky as I have a 30.5" DL, this means I can get almost anything with a 60 lb draw weight up to 300fps, provided I keep my arrows light. If I were hunting, I would have a different rig, with 70 lbs to allow me good KE with a much heavier arrow.

A lot depends on what you want to do with your bow.

all I do is hunt. Thats why I was hoping to find something in the not too physically heavy range and not overly long. I might end up with a Constitution but Im keeping my options open. Most of the bows I've been checking on to this point, I cant afford anyways. Who knows, I might have to go with like a Mathews MQ1 for starters. We'll see. Thanks so much for everyones help and suggestions. Please keep it coming. Im a slow learner. :)

The Connie is a good, fast, accurate bow, I have been shooting them since 2005; but IMO the Martin Shadowcat is an easier bow to get along with, and it will also let you get away with the odd mistake, which the Connie will not.
