after buying new left over bows. Both my 93 Bengal and my 2004 altitude were left overs, I finally ordered my 2009 Firecat. Dealer said it will take 3 weeks for it to arrive due to Martin is still filling its January orders. I can't wait till i start launching arrow to close to 300fps with deadly accuracy. I still break out the old Bengal, now that was a damn good bow that can launch a 28" 2018 arrow at 245fps. However with the 09 firecat I hope i can get to hunt with the use of one pin out to 30 yds now that i have been using cx terminator lites complete arrow set up comming in at 380 gr.

You'll spend a lot more on arrows,I can't hardly shoot a group to set a pin with a Robinhood.Hope you love yours as much as I do mine. Best money I have ever spent.
