While you certainly could do it I have hunted with a shorter and a longer ATA bow and especially out of my climber I prefer the shorter ATA.

If all you have is the one bow I would not hesitate in using it.
If I had a choice though and I was going to use a Scepter I would outfit it with the 14" mag limbs and some NOS cams. A Scepter will smoke an arrow with this set up.

For that purpose I would get the Mystic. Sweet bow the same cams just alittle shorter ata and faster.

How much faster is a Scepter with Mag (14") limbs, VS. a Scepter with Elite(17") limbs??...Apples to apples comparison?...I have a Scepter 3 with Fury X cams, and I've let the cables out, and the shoot string, to get the Fury X cams over-rotated to fit My draw, and lower the brace height a bit,...This Scepter has excellent arrow speed for it's brace height and A-T-A specs...Also, how does the back wall, and draw, and speed of the Furious X cams compare to the Fury X cams?..Alot of questions, but I'm wondering if it's worth it to upgrade to the Furious X cams vs. the older Fury X cams?...Thanks in advance....Harpman

The nly advantage the Furious has over the Fury is the ability to adjust the DL. Other than that they are basicaly the same cam. I do believe the 65% Fury may be a tad faster than the Furious...everything being =.
