    Default firecat 360 or ridge hunter

    I have an option of getting a 2011 ridge hunter or a 2011 firecat 360 the 360 is 40$ more is it really worth the $40 to get the firecat?

    Firecat 360,it come with the SOS string stop,the ridge hunter does not have it stock(but can be ordered).Beside that,the specs for the 2 are basically the same.If you can shoot both,maybe one will feel better than the other.

    Look at it this way: If you don't care whether you have the SOS or not, than go with the Ridge Hunter, but if you want the SOS, than go with the Firecat. I think it would be safe to say that the cost of the SOS separately is probably not cheap.

    Don't you need the TRG to use the SOS? Trg $16.95 + SOS $23= $39.95 + shippinng. May as well get the Firecat, no waiting for an order to come in.

    The TRG is standard on all the bows, the SOS however is an option on the Ridgehunter, Exile, Leopard and Saber.

    Thought about a Pantera? Kinda strikes me as funny that the Pantera is the ONLY bow from Martin that comes with a complete cloak package as standard. Would make more sense to me if all the Pro series were cloaked. Build a little more value in them.
