Slayer does not shoot like a speed bow. It is smooth on the shot, very little jump that is instantly eliminated by a stabilizer, no hand vibration, manageable noise, smooth draw.
The Nitrous cams roll over so easily they can feel smoother than some Solocams; however, they also feel as if they have less letoff than is actually present. As such, some people have problems holding it at the wall, but this can be remedied by shortening the draw length 1/8".
I have not shot an 08 yet, but the structure has not changed so I imagine the feel hasn't either. Not sure on how the CAT cams draw though.
A truly unparallelled speed bow, superb for hunting. Some complain that the A2A is a bit long, and the weight to heavy for hunting, but that is personal preference. I don't have a problem hunting. More than capeable of hunting any game animal in NA.

Which SlayR limbs are bettewr for hunting SuperMag,Mag,SE
There are two Slayr models One spelled SLAYR, and one spelled SLAYER... In 2006 they switched to the SLAYER. So my 2004 is the previous model but I've had it since 2005. It was my Second modern (wheelie) bow. It shoots like a PHOTON CANNON. It makes me a better archer. I swapped my Slayr to X system and it shoots EVEN BETTER... Hold on a second while I drink some more kool aid... I own an S4 and a Bengal. The S4 is a better Spots bow, the Bengal a better hunting bow, but the Slayr does it all real well.
Forget the SE, I know the logo is on the limb, but it is supposed to indicate which limb pockets are on the bow. Don't concern yourself with it..

From personally owning a Slayer I'd would assess it as a pretty good all-round bow, especially if you're a speed freak like me. I'd still recommend shooting before buying.
