    What I want to know is if the limb pivot on the twin limbs rotates in the grove on the peg just like the previous Roto cup? If so, why is not possible to put split limbs, limb pockets and new style roto cup on the other models if you want to? Also they correctly displayed the speeds on the single cam bows this year and didn't over state them. They missed the Scepter 5. It won't shoot 330 unless the new cams are faster. Last year 315 was the max, same as the Shadowcat.

    I'm really liking the line up but wondering about the Phantom and the Blade feeling very similar and sorta the same with Bengal/Prowler. I woulda kept the Cougar over the Prowler, but that's just me. Really like that they kept the XT and branded it with the Onza. Really considering pulling the trigger on one, since I've wanted an Onza since the 2011 series. I like the Alien, but with the one I had, just loved the Bengal more and feel it might be similar, but with the different grip and addition of the new VEMs ... that might totally change that bow.

    Well, I did notice that the bows equipped with the X4 limbs are listed as slightly lower speeds than comparable solid limb bows. But really, what's 5 - 10fps?

    The absence of the the Cougar (Firecat) and the Silencer is a shame, leaving only the Onza with the Nitro cams in the Gold series, but that's not terrible seeing as the Alien has that range covered.

    The Onza XT is not a surprise, as the Alien XT was really just an Onza 3 with some slight riser changes, but its still good to see one more familiar face.

    I really like that there is more of a range this year, 30-40 ATA, 315-340 IBO, single cam, dual cam, split limb, solid limb, there's really a bow for everyone!

    What a fantastic lineup!. i don't need another compound this years As I'm very happy with my Nemesis and Scepter. That El Dorado Longbow needs a home on my wall. I want one in 45 DW at 28 DL. I think the Prowler would make a great hunting bow for my son. Lighter at 3.4 pounds. Starting at 24.5 DL.
