I would buy 2011 Firecat 400. Just to have a dual cam bow to have fun with.
I like the looks of it as well as the looks of the silencer. :cool:

That's great. Nothing like being able to shoot all year round, rain or shine.:D

If I were going to get a 2011 bow, what would it be?

Think in the Pro Series it would be the Firecat 400 (Shadowcat, if I were to get another finger bow to replace my old '96 Firecat)
In the Gold Series, I would seriously consider the Onza3. I like the little longer length of the Onza3 vs Firecat, but final choice between those two would be which shot best for me.

Looking thru specs, didn't see any reason to pick another single cam over my current Bengal.

In the works is 2011 Shadowcat and for something else I'd probably go over to the Rytera line and see what they've got. I've shot the shorter bows and there's really not anything wrong with them except for me. I'd like to have something in the 38" range. Here's where I'd like to seen the Slayer lengthened to. I would have tried the Scepter, but it, too, is gone.

I don't expect to see the 2011 models here, but just for the game: the Shadowcat and the Firecat 400 ... and may be the Onza (but i need to hold it in my hands first ;) ).

I haven't seen the specs on the Seeker yet, but otherwise the longest Alien from 2010 is the "Z" at 36". I'm what some would consider short at 5'8" and that's what I'm shooting at about 26 3/4" draw. The bow is definitely a shooter although I'm not too crazy about the CCS. It pulls the cables too far to the side so I added a washer under the front screw to angle it in closer to the string. I think this makes for less cam lean and cable torque.

70# Firecat 400, and a 60# Silencer. I've shot both, and LOVE them....

on my x it is exagerated even more, im thinking......ive got alot of cable clearance, and might add a washer too!
