Don't get too excited...I'm at 50, and my shop called Hoyt and they said they are very behind on these, and they expect to get mine out around mid-January.

Hoyt's make terrific bows, but they do have the slowest service of all time. Sent in my Vectrix to get worked one time...took them 5 weeks to service, ordered Fuse stabilizers, took them 4 weeks ,ordered a CE in orange - they are up to 7 weeks and counting.....own a Mathews Apex 7, sent it in to get worked one time (new limbs and limb pockets)...took them 3 days...not three days in their shop, three days since it left my hands until it got back.

Now, Hoyts are AMAZING...and I have no regrets ordering my CE, but like I said, maybe it's because their fan base is so strong, but if you were Hoyt...and you KNEW your CE was going to be a huge hit...wouldn't you have hundreds if not thousands of limbs and risers ready to go? It just seems idiotic in my mind to have a BRAND NEW MODEL come out, that you know will be a hit success, and then do a build-to-order philosophy and make your customers wait 7+ weeks on the bow. I'm honestly a little bummed now...I'm not even that excited to get it anymore because it was so long ago...I forget that I ordered it sometimes.

So, 30 days...you have a lot longer to wait...believe me.

What color did you order? It seems like as long as you didn't order anything custom or orange, people are getting them in. But, if it is orange or it is custom at all, it is a 8-10 week wait. And like I said...for spending $1,300 on a bow...I'd like to have it arrive a little faster than that.

Mine is Jet Black so maybe not too much longer.

I understand what you mean you would think for that kind of $$$$ you could get one a little quicker.
Like every other year once we get it in our hands and bust a few Xs or 12s we seem to forget all about the wait.

This one took a full 6 weeks to get. Another guy that ordered his the same day as i did, but in orange, was told it will be at least 2 or 3 more weeks.

Waiting for hoyt is a time honored tradition. I've never received anything from them in any kind of timley fashion. I had a recurve that took 3 months to get the handle and 5 more weeks to get the limbs!

This thing is rock friggin' solid. And the offset mount is pretty solid too. I think you will like it. The black will look bad azz for sure. At least we won't be picking up eachothers bows by mistake this year. LOL.

being that orange is the popular color this year and on the light to dark color range , i am pretty sure that most of the newer CE risers are being dumped directly into a orange bath. thus, this makes rickinmo wait longer than just 50 days. but why worry rick ole buddy, yoou don't normally come out to shoot until march anyways,lol.:wink:

the offset is being made by a buddy of mine. he is a machinist and is working on some ideas. This is a prototype but the finished version will be very close. It is rock solid. Might see a few floating around by the Iowa pro am.

Lee ole Buddy you do have a point there but old guys like me need to start practicing early to be ready for March.
