The new firecat 360 is a single cam
The new firecat 400 is a hybrid 2 cam bow
The tr1 and tr2 are the old names

TR1 is 2010 single cam Firecat, TR2 is 2010 duo cam, and Firecat 360 is 2011 single cam with Firecat 400 being the 2011 duo cam model.

thank's for the help. I guess i"m UNconfused now. all i need now is a martin dealer that stocks martin bows so i can try shooting a fire cat or a pantera.this on line stuff is fine if you know what you want. i have a lot of martin dealers locally but they don't stock the bows .they will order a bow for me but that dosn't help when i don't know what i want:confused:it's funny how they carry a full line of bow tec's and mathew's but you mention martin archery products and they tell you that martin bows are like second class . i don't get it.

I think it probably has something to do with how much profit can be made by the shop owner. Martin bows being lower cost likely equates to lower profit for store owner. That doesn't mean lower quality however.

Possibly the store owner doesn't want potential customers comparing lower cost Martins against higher priced bows. Don't know, maybe you could put the question to the pro shop owners.

Is the only difference between the Firecat 400 and 360 the cams?

Firecat 400 is dual cam, higher speeds. Firecat 360 is a single cam lower speed.

I'm a left too!:D
