Ok, well I'm pretty sure Martin came out with the first Bengal in 07, and then the newer model in 08? If I'm not right, correct me. But either way, I have the older version. Now I was wondering really what all the advantages/disadvantages the newer one has? I haven't shot it but I've felt it, and its lighter, butthats about all I know. If there is anyone who has shot both of them that'd be great if you could comment...

I have shot no Bengal at all but the 08 Bengal has a Draw Stop with the newer M-Pro-Cams. ;)

The two bows are identical in all respects but a couple. As Simon said, the '08 version has a slot machined in the cam to attach an optional draw stop. The other is that the riser has a machined hole in the back located just below the grip to facilitate mounting Martin's new STS.

Other than that you'll never know the difference.
