Default WOW!!!!!!!! Shot the AlphaMax 32"

That bow was sweet!!, I shot it over 15x. I didn't want to put it up at all, made me feel like I was a competition shooter. I really like this bow a lot. The price tag is the only negative on this bow. I still might have to buy it though.

Pros: Smooth, Fast, Silent, great back wall, to me it wasn't too spongy. On release very little vibration, with stabilizer it will be dead silence. Man!!! That bow is smoking. On hoyt.com Waddell and T-Bone was talking about the bow and they weren't lying at all. This bow was very nice.

Also another pro is that its a very light bow. I held the bow up in the air as long as I could. Held it for a long time!!!

Hoyt outdone themselves once again!!!

I was basically sold on the Bowtechs, will give them a chance, but I think it will be hard to beat the Alphamax.

I am thinking about doing is buying all the accessories early store them away, then buy the bow.

Yes the grip is very narrow.

I thought they wanted people to buy it, not just dream about it. At that price I really have no incentive to buy it, especially when it's modeled after a bow that is already on the market that's a few hundred cheaper.

I'd likely look at the Superhawk. It's a mid-range bow, that looks pretty cool. It's got a brace height of 7.5" and has similar limbs to the Katera. I don't care that it doesn't have an STS bracket. I can always make one if I really want it. Besides, I'm not one to go out and buy a new bow every year, because every year every manufacturer will come out with something better than the previous year. I just want something that'll last me a while.

I like the shorter brace height because you have to make every shot perfect and thats how I want to shoot. Perfect every single time.
