thanks. What do you know about the z cams and can you still get parts for this type of bow? do you have any idea? I haven't bought it yet. would i be better saving my $200 and putting it towards something else? thanks:confused:

I AM IN THE PROCESS OF PICKING UP A JAGUAR 60LB WITH Z CAMS FOR MY 6FT TALL 14 YR OLD. i KILLED SEVERAL DEER( WITH PASS THRUS) USING A JAGUAR WITH Z CAMS AT 52LB 29" DRAW. YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO FIND SOME DRAW MODULES AND LIMBS. GOD BLESS AND GOOD HUNTING, WILLOW

The Scepter2 was a great bow in its time and it is still. If you find modules for the Z-Cam (some shops may still sell them) you will be fine. 200$? Try to get it for 150$! ;)

When I looked at the Sceptor II yrs ago, it seem very similar to my old Firecat, and it still works just fine for hunting.

I have Ultrasonic wheels on my old bow, but bought my son a '02 Jaguar w/ Z-Cams and we really like it.....enough to where I almost regretted not getting Z-cams on my Firecat when I ordered it clear back in '96.

Been a while, but think last time we checked, the Jaguar set at 49-50lbs w/28" DL, and shooting a 425gr arrow at about 220fps......based on specs shown for your Bengal, I'd guess the Sceptor would shoot a similar weight arrow at least 240fps?

yea....thats true. I'm thinking maybe finding 28" draw length mods. might be hard to find. I'm sure martin doesn't make limbs for these any more either. Maybe i better keep looking for something a little more practicle for a backup bow.

Thanks ,everyone for their comments i really appreciate the imput. :)
