ps. Most people say Martin Scepter s ( I, II, III and now IV) are the best you can get to indoor shooting

The Scepter III came out in 2003 with Fury Cams, then in 2004 they came out with the Nitrous Cams. They droped the Scepter in 2005 when they came out with the Shadow Cat. In 2007 they saw the error of their ways and brought back the Scepter IV with the new Furious Cams.

Some people are apparently are having trouble with the Furious cams and putting the Nitrous cams on them.

What year Scepter II are you looking to buy. One with the Fury cams or the Nitrous cams.

I have a Scepter II that I put together with the Nitrous cams. It takes a while to get used to the Nitrous cams, but once you do, you will like them.

I think the only difference between the Scepters is that the Scepter III has a different grip angle than the others. I may be wrong but I think the Scepter II has more grip angle than the others. More like the Cougar.

You can't go wrong with any Scepter.

I have an S4 on the way that I'm going to convert to a shoot through. What problems exactly have people been complaining about with the Furious cams? I've been thinking of putting Nitrous X cams on it for some extra juice, but the Martin gurus on AT.com said I should stick to the Furious cams if I'm using the bow strictly for 20 yard spots.
