    There is a post somewhere here about it. Joel said there was something complicated with having parts machined or something similar irc.

    Search for Prowler release date and you'll see Joel's explanation. The risers for the Prolwer were to be cast and that means outsourcing. The company that was supposed to cast the risers did not come forth with the product. Therefore the Prowler could not be built and sold. Same goes for the Exile and Exile Pro, apparently.

    Understand that the wbsite and catalog are designed and printed months ahead of time and when such production changes occur it's just not economically feasable to have all new catalogs printed.

    In the Gold Series, the Silencer with Fury XT cam is virtually the same bow as is the Bengal in the Pro lineup.

    The Exile will still be made. The Exile Pro was the one that was supposed to be cast, so now it won't be produced.

    Oops, and I think I made a mistake about the Prowler, too. I think I remember seeing that they are starting to ship about now.
