    Just as 2011 I'll probably wait till I see what Rytera is going to offer, but finally, finally I see the possibility of a Scepter in my future.

    well,the risers all look similar to the Nemesis' and Alien X's,IMO. i'm very much interest to shoot the new single cam. my "to-shoot" list is the Prowler,the Crossfire and the Bengal. i wish they had an actual BLACK instead of that gawd awful carbon fiber stuff. that stuff was better left to tuner cars. what camo is that? it looks different than the previous camo. i think i like it

Also it maxes out at 30.5" and the firecat last year was 30". THe single cam Fury XT cams can adjust all the way to 31" draw from 25.5" being the lowest. It is nice that they give you that option as a buyer to get it in the dual cam or the single cam. Not a lot of companies offer that luxury.
    No, his statement is mostly true. It is a re-badged FC 400 with the new Hybrid Pro cams that allow for greater D/L adjustments with the same speed. My FC 400 is the same 32.25" A2A. The Fury XT cam option just makes it a re-badged FC360 with the new uber adjustable and faster cams. These are both welcomed refinements, not evolutionary. So they really aren't giving anymore options in this case, they cut one bow and doubled up on another.

    That said I would like a set of these uber adjustable cams for my bow so I could get to the 27" DL my bow is supposed to have.

I don't care what anyone says, just like sex, speed sells. Hopefully they will actually reach these speeds this year and not just be a number like last year. I like the looks of the lower cam but the upper cam is fugly IMO. There sure are some large adjustment ranges to the cams this year too!

    It looks like all but two bows have the Pro moniker now. That kind of devalues the name in my book. It seems kinda confusing that some of the old "Gold" series names like Bengal are now in the "Pro" series/line of bows. Even more confusing is the use of the Pro moniker in both the "Pro" and "Gold" lines?

    I'm not to keen on the bulky look of the Bengal, Crossfire and Prowler. I think they lost the clean lines that previous year bows had.

    I see the Pantera Magnum now has the new style grip this year. The Magnum moniker eludes me, what makes it a Magnum and not a Pro? Maybe because it is the longest A2A hunting bow at 34"???

    Also there are two versions of the Exile now, Exile Pro M-24 and a Exile M-18 yet I have found no difference in the specs?

    Is the Scepter V Pro just a renamed Shadowcat?

    One bow that seems to serve no purpose and is out of place is the Crossfire. Why does it serve no purpose? It has Nitro Hybrid Pro cams (there is that Pro moniker again), a 1/2" shorter A2A, a 1/2" brace height an and has slower FPS (320) than the Exile (320-330 FPS). What am I missing?

    Are these risers still three piece screwed and glued? I know it says machined from one slid piece of aluminum but so does the 2011 catalog and we know they are screwed and glued three piece risers.

    The worst part is now the Bengal is back and it not a re-badged Ridge Hunter and I will have to hear it from Gravedigger, Hutch and Arrow Splitter!!!!

    I don't see whining, I see questions and confusion. I even see some positive remarks. I have been very good about not being too hard on Martin. I'm not a Martin fanboy, or any other brand for that matter. There is no need to sugar coat everything.

    Now, the looks of some of the bows I don't like, I think it is ugly. That is my opinion, if you think it is beautiful that is your opinion. I don't need to shoot it or see it in person for that. BTW I have see pictures of you and know you are ugly and don't need to see you in person to verify it!
