i've been shooting one (31.5") for just about two months now. the limbs are xt1000 slim limbs. the ata is 36" with a 8" bh. i've owned maybe 15 hoyts in the past nine years and this is the most enjoyable to shoot of the lot. a total tack driver and holds like a rock. it's not a burner though. if you want a speed bow, go elsewhere but it will tear up a asa course.
I would kill (not really) to shoot one with xts 500 limbs. I like the maxxis with 7 in brace height and at 30.5in draw length I don't need the length of the xts1000 limbs. I'm looking for a little longer ATA especially at full draw and I'm pretty sure a maxxis with xts500 (less arc) limbs would be perfect. I called Hoyt to see they could make one but was told to buy an alphamax. Hoyt said they didn't have specs for maxxis with xts 500 limbs. I would have to make custom strings and cables to get the correct preload.
