    I haven't seen the prowler out in the shops yet but have seen the Bengal and Pantera in them. I've just purchased the Cougar FC Fury Cam from my local shop in Skull Camo and so far so good. I have over 500 shots on it and the only thing that I have had trouble with was the cable stretching a little, had to put a couple of twist in it. I did have some issues with clearance with the 2' blazers but fixed that with a Sanders Hyper Glide Slide and cocking the top van a little to the right. For the Fury Cam it's nice, draw cycle is as smooth as you can get. Back wall is sold and you can hold for a long period of time if needed. I have a 2011 Fire Cat 400 that my main bow. I have seen the Fire Cat 360 (2011) model with the Acu/Trac cam in the pro shop on sale currently for a great price.
    I don't think you could go wrong with any of the new 2012 line on price, I'm petty sure that most dealers have a set price on the 2012 line up currently. You may have to order the prowler with out a test shot. Personnel I would look at the new Pantera it has a 34 ATA, it my next bow but will wate for the end of the year to get a sale on it.

    Jim is a dealer from Ohio. I just bought a Bengal Pro from him and I'm sure he can help you out. Great pricing and a great guy to do business with.

    If there is a holdup on the Prowler it's probably because there haven't been enough orders placed for Martin to justify changing the production lines to make them. Don't forget, they have to order and machine the risers, send them out to be dipped, make strings, and assemble them. They don't do this stuff a few at a time.
