Have always shot Hoyt bows in the past...love 'em

Went and shot the Stealth EC and 2017 Air with the EC cam last night..

I loved them MORE! That Stealth is something else! The grip is a little brickish but didn't bother me after about 12 shots...

Those EC cams may be the best cam going right now!

Yeah the only cams and draw cycle I could find even close is the chill x. Problem was with the 85% mods on the chill it was much slower. I almost sold my carbon air 34. So glad I didn't. Another that is real similar but still not as smooth but worth trying is an elite v37. They have the vgrip which is blocky like the 34. Good smooth bow as well. Those are the 2 I am running with rite now.

They had a fully setup Triax, stab, sight, etc, hanging on a peg next to it...so I thought what the heck...'
I could barely lift it off the peg! What the heck does one of those weigh all decked out!!

AGREED! The Evolve cams on the Stealth make for a really good lightweight bow. Also the 33" ATA makes it very accurate at long range. I was having no problem killing my 3D deer at 100 yards today

About 1.2lbs more than a identically accessorized Carbon Air.
I love the EC system too, especially for the performance in relation to DFC.
I hunted with an Evolve 35 last year and enjoyed it.
Congrats on the new bow.

LMAO that's not jumping ship, it just buying equipment that works for you. I'm not loyal to any company. I get what works for me. Name has nothing to do with it.
In other words it is what ever bow picks me. At this time it happens to be PSE.

I feel sorry for people that buy a brand and never even try another...no matter what brands they are. I shoot whatever I like now. At a point I did have to choose within a brand and for me it almost made me quit the sport. I felt like I was picking the one I didn't dislike the most...…..lol

Since then I simplified and made archery fun again. Now I get to shoot anything that catches my eye. Freedom is a good thing if you know how to use it...…..lol

Get the Carbon Air if your going PSE. Your dealer can still order them. The Stealth is a MASSIVE down grade in every way...

I've owned 'em all shot them all over the last 40 years...OK, truth be told I've never seen a New Breed in person...but
just so happened Hoyt had a good run through the 2000's...that has ended...

AND in a perfect world...the new Evolve cam system with a Hoyt grip would bring me to tears....

I'm liking my Response with the Evolve cams with the SE mods., just a bit heavier than the Stealth and lighter than the Evolve 31, and has a thinner grip that fits my hand perfectly, plus a lot cheaper than the Stealth.

Try a Xpedition Denali, 3.9 pounds, 34" ATA, 345 IBO. I had an Evolve 35 and I think the Denali is a way better bow, grip, fit and finish, easier to tune, better back wall. (And over $500 less)
