there are some good prices on 08 Hoyt Kateras out there now. Great bow.
if you go with the alphamax, get the #2 cam as it is about 10fps faster than the #3 cam. People have been reporting around a 330-335fps ibo for the #2 cam, which for how great it shoots it is a killer bow.Thanks to all. I just said I've mainly looked at Mathews and Bowtech, I haven't crossed anything off the list yet. I've been out of the scene for a while, but have shot for several years, just haven't kept up with new equipment. My SQ2 is the newest bow I've ever shot, so I don't know exactly what I'm looking for. I'll start by saying what I didn't like about the SQ2. The arrow drops a good bit, I.E. 20 to 30 is a big difference. Also, it is loud. A friend has a Drenalin. When shooting, you instantly hear the thump. With my SQ2, there's a big delay, The IBO on the SQ2 was 305 fps. I did like the length, but I don't care to go up an inch or so (I'd say 33 is the max, although that may change once I shoot them). Also, the Drenalin was flat. My friend uses one pin out to 35 yards and one for anything above that. So I guess speed is a big issue as well. For instance, I've looked at the Bowtech Admiral. Specs seem great. However, I'm sure they have an older version or at least a comparable older model, I just don't know the name since they don't list the specs online. I have also looked at the Alphamax 32, it's definately on the list. I'm hoping to get a used bow for $600 or less. And finally, it MUST be durable. I'll be toting it through the woods and such, and I will not be getting another bow for several years (been probably 10 years since I've had a new bow). Thank you everyone, I really appreciate the input.
