    I've never owned one, but have shot one before. It was a very nice, smooth drawing and shooting bow. I don't think you can go wrong with the bow as long as he can handle it.

    Yeah, I know I'm grumpy and opinionated.

    Thanks Ehunter, I know the older dual cam firecat is a nice bow, but didn't know how the single cam version stacked up. I am guessing its quite a bit slower.

    nestick, I'm betting the single cam is going to be about 15-20 fps slower. Still plenty fast though. Should be able to get it into the mid 280's or better with a hunting arrow around 380 gr.
