the site wouldn't let me post a reply to my original thread since i'm not registered, but here's a link to photobucket with all the pictures i could take of the bow. i did get the messages about it being a 2007 or 2008 model. i didn't think it would be that new considering what i got it for (aprox 145 plus shipping). it is in excellent shape and i'm especially excited to start shooting it considering i'm just getting into the sport and the bow i was shooting is a 1975 browning woodsman that is set at a 30" draw length and 65 lbs and i shoot a 27.5" and a 55 lb, so this is great. the new one even has a let off (i can't adjust the woodsman at all and i can't draw it back enough to get it to break over).

OK, I'm late with my post on your original thread. I'm sorry about you not being able to register. Please be patient as I have been trying to get hold of admin to get this straightened out.
Don't fret too much. The bow you got has to be either 2007 with a 2008 cam or possibly a 2008 model (with draw stop). Sounds like you made a very good deal for yourself. As you know, it'll fit much better and is 30 years newer so you're going to end up a happy camper.
Now I have to check your photobucket link.
Well, it's either a late 2007 or an early 2008 model - the cams are grey, but have a draw stop :D This isn't so important. The bow is good, have a nice time with it. I'm not 100% sure but i think the cam needs a little adjustment. By the way i have the same stabilizer - made in Taiwan. I've found that it works better if you add some rubber to it. I have mine drilled and threaded in the front and in the hole i've put a threaded steel rod with 3 heavy pieces of rubber (from a walking cane). It works better so. :)

Yes, your Jaguar has a let off, 80% to be exact. You will notice a big difference in shooting your Jaguar in comparison to the Woodsman.:cool:
