I'm considering upgrading from my 2003 Prowler SE to the 2010 Firehawk. Has anyone shot this bow or know how good it performs. I have a short draw length at 26", will this affect its performance.

I'm going to guess that this is not a very popular model as no responce posted.

The Firehawk has the CAT Cams but the design of the riser limits the effectiveness and speed that you would expext from a hybrid duo cam system. it has an ATA of 30" and it is rated at 315-320fps conversely the Fircat TR2 uses the same cam system but has a different riser and ATA of 32 1/4" but rated at 335-345. At 26 in DL 70#'s with a Firehawk you can expect 270-275 fps. the Firecat would yield 295-300. Firehawk is $580 and the Firecat TR2 is $620. In my opinion the the benifits of the Firecat far outweigh the $40 difference in price it would be my choice over the Firehawk.

thx for the info, I'll look at the firecat also. I'm going to lose a little more speed as I only draw between 60 to 63 lbs, 65 max. My prowler goes up to 70 lbs but I can't draw it at that weight.

You will have enough speed regardless of which bow you buy. Yep its a problem for short draw archers, always loose speed in comparison to the standard 30" draw. Can only draw 60#? 60# is plenty. :)

The firecat at 60-63# is till gonna get you to 290-295 at 26" with an IBO arrow. 265-270 for the Firehawk. My first firecat maxed at 63 and at 27 1/2" i was getting 311.
