    I'll take a guess. He's either a target shooter or a finger shooter. Less letoff means higher holding weight which for many means more stable aiming or a cleaner release using fingers.

    I haven't heard any news or rumors, but my gut says you'll be moving on to another company.

    Not a finger shooter, but i am a target shooter. I have every scepter made from the first to the latest. All well made in my opinion. And just like the valley with more weight. I am not a wall shooter. The only way to get the letoff is to use the draw stop. I use a stan hinge backtension whater you want to call it. And for me i like less letoff. I still hunt with an old martin fury. I lve martin bows. Have shot them for the last 27 years. I didnt word my post the way i should have. I just really want to see a nice target cam. I realize it prob isnt happening and prob isnt in there best interest. Perhaps the market is too small. i will never dump martin i may move on or build a frankenbow but i will never leave martin entirely.

    in bass pros latest fall catalog, there is a martin exile x4. i have never seen a bow like this and it is not on martins website, it is a split limb martin bow and a little bit longer riser. it looks sweet. i hope this is a peak of 2013 martin bows, some split limb bows would be sick.

    I don't get that. I am a finger shooter and I currently use the new Scepter V and I LOVE IT!. My technique has improved if anything. Maybe it's because I use to shoot a old cougar mag that had, at best, 10% let off and got the finger release down early or maybe because I use the "instinctive" form of shooting and put so much emphasis on form.....I don't know. 80% let off hasn't been an hindrance but a boon. I get to relax more, concentrate on my form and I've never been so accurate. Ask my friends


    Still, one thing I've learned from talking with archers and reading through this forum is that your setup is like a good woman, what fits you might not fit the next guy.

    Cheers!

    I'm with jrnymanwv on this, don't like the HL mod on my C nitrous cams at all, feels like I have to push the string away, and prefer the valley with the 65% mods on the cams. Anyone looking for a HL X Nitrous Cam mod set? Also have two sets of 65% mini mods, Cable slide side only.
