I think your best bet would be to shoot both and see which one you like. Look at the specs too, which I'll assume you already have. I don't think you could go wrong with either choice.

The best thing you can do it shoot them both and decide what right for you. Personally I think the Katera is a much nicer bow. I am currently shooting it and absolutely love it. In fact I like it that much we just named Holly's new kitten Katera. The Katera is very smoooooooooooooth, fast, and very forgiving! It is a short brace height but it doesnt shoot like a short brace bow. I shot bowtechs and they just aint the bow for me. Dont get me wrong they make a good bow. But I always felt their draw cycle is way to harsh. Just my .02.....

Shoot'em both. That's the best way to tell.

Don't rule out Diamond bows. They are made by Bowtech and are Bowtech's single cam lineup. The Marquis is an exquisite bow and so is the Black Ice. I shoot a 70# Black Ice. Best bow I've shot. 3.6 lbs. 32" ATA. FAST, Quiet, Smooth.

Make sure you shoot before you buy. Buying a bow is like buying shoes (The should be comfortable the first time you try them on).

Don't rule out Mathews bows too. And in my opinion don't get hung up in the hype that a faster is better.
