    Default Firecat 400 or Silencer

    So next week I am ordering my new bow,but I see more guys here buying the
    Silencer over the Fc.I cannot shoot either of these bows,so is there a reason

    I've shot them both and couldnt tell the difference between the two. The silencer cost less than the firecat 400. I believe this is because of the cost for machining those claw or tooth designs into the riser of the firecat 400. I own a silencer and love it. it is a great all around bow. Cant go wrong with either one. Good luck to you with your choice and enjoy the new bow.

    Also the silencer is less weight if I remember right. 3.7 vs. 3.5 Something to think about. Less money less weight almost the same bow.

    I know how that is. My exwife offered to buy me a new bow in return for babysitting so she could watch the S-bowl w some friends. Seems like I've been waiting months to get my new Hoyt Alphamax 35. It was offered to me cheaper than a new Martin and I couldn't pass it up.it a smooth shooter. Still have 2more days!uggg
