    if you already have two apparently nice compound bows, if there isn't anything wrong with them and your looking to expand your archery sport from an equipment AND experience standpoint, why dont you think about getting one of the nice MARTIN recurves? i find that jaguar takedown model is one you could have in your vehicle and just leave it for them times you may find yourself in a unexpected place to shoot/practice a little that otherwise would have found your nice rig at home , expecially if the poundage (45?) isnt to high to introduce someone new to archery. have fun.

    Ok, now that Rytera appears to be out, should I pick the Onza or the Scepter for my bow this year? The Scepter seems to be similar to last years ShadowCat, and Ryteras Alien XT looks just like the Onza. Since I already have the ShadowCat, I am tempted to get the Onza, but is the Alien XT going to be better?

    I don't know about better, but knowing Rytera, it will probably be more $

    He doesn't have to worry about $ because he's a Silver Star shooter.

    If the AXT's are actually going to come with the 3.0 Hybrix, then that will be my vote.

    And the Scepter's may be real close to the Shadowcat's, but have the newer version 'Nitro Hybrid Pro' cams on them, - besides the other upgrades.

    (hard to tell from the Martin Catalog because the pics of the bows and pics of the cams dont match...)
