6 or 7? Wow...In how many years? What is the reason for the changes, feel, accuracy, adjustment of your shooting style?

It certainly is better than having 6 or 7 televisions. Unless the reason is that you don't want to miss Archerschoice or The Choice when you walk from one room to the next.

Firediver its an amazing bow isnt it. I been shooting the regular Katera and its been sweet! I dont know why its so forgiving with only a 6 inch brace height but it is. Hoyt for sure built their best shooter to date.

Once my arrows and rest come in, I'll FINALLY be able to shoot mine. It's been a long wait!

My first Hoyt was a "starter" bow....nothing too fancy. It was the Hoyt Rapter.
Then I decided to upgrade to a split-limb bow with a machined aluminum riser...Hoyt Striker.

I ran that one over with my truck...and even though I thought all was well, it blew up on me the following spring when I was at full draw. (The dent in my head has healed

I had a Striker II for a short time and then upgraded to the Cybertec. I kept this bow the longest of any of my Hoyts (about 4 years I think) and then bought a Trykon.

I liked the Trykon a lot and didn't understand the negative things I was reading about it....that was until I shot a Vectrix last year. Once I "loosed" a few arrows with a friends Vectrix, I knew it was time for a change.

That brings us to my Katera....which is by far the sweetest bow I've ever shot!!!

I've got a Parker now. It is a good bow but I think that I need one that is finer now that I have myself broken in.
