i like my shadowcat (except i'd like a little more speed out of it) but i'm getting real tempted by the scepter v. for those who have shot both, is there that much difference between the two to justify the $850 price tag. if so what are the major improvements to the scepter v?

there's no dealer within a couple hundred miles of me that might have one to try, so i'm depending on the experts here to help me out.

thanks.

I don't have any first hand experience with the Shadowcat. I loved how my nemesis shoots and the Scepter is even above that. Smooth as butter compared to the nemesis. If I had the cash I would buy another Scepter with higher poundage and take it hunting. I like the grip.

I have a shadowcat and two scepter Vs. one is the same speed as my cat and one is a little slower.all three are set up with limbdrivers and the same arrow. two of my buddies have scepters and their speeds are the same as mine. they are still plenty fast enough for 3d,all right around 300fps at 60lbs . they draw the same as the cat.

I prefer the Scepter V over shadow Cat.

For me it is shorter ATA and the string angle is better. Plus I get more speed about 303 fps at 27 3/4" AMO. A big plus is the 1 pc riser.

Scepter V for me over shadow cat.

Is is worth the money? To just buy and have 2 bows??? Up to you.
