They made a tiny hybrid of AVS and Crosscentric cams and put a $999 tag on it! Doesn't seem to appealing to be marketed as a youth bow for such a steep price. What say you?

True, but I dont think it'll be on the market long. If it does stay on the market, it'll have to have a revised and slashed price tag.

Yeah some of these companies are charging way too much for bows these days. I would like to get in to a newer Mathews bow by this summer but I think I might have to start looking at a different brand since they are getting way over priced. I gotta find something not split limbed that's smooth to draw, comes in left hand and has my short draw length. Any suggestions on a company to look at that has a 26.5" capable draw length? Right now I just got my LX back which is a really smooth bow to draw but I want something a little faster for hunting these wide open spaces here in Texas.

Why don't you want split limb? I got my 2015 NoCam HTR in 2016 for $750, in like-new condition with a RipCord Code Red rest on it. ArcheryTalk has a bunch of great deals on them. confused2

Sorry to take so long to get back to you. Been awhile since I have been on the forum. I guess I would be open to split limb bows since they seem to have come a long way from the way they used to be. I remember a time where they were having limb twist, hair line crack issues etc. My Mission MXB-360 crossbow is a split limb and I love that darn crossbow. I would really like to stick with a Mathews bow but I have read some bad reviews about certain models that they put out and now these top bow companies are starting to really up their prices to ridiculous amounts. I wouldn't pay over $1,000.00 for any compound hunting bow but I would for a custom hand made recurve from a famous bowyer who wasn't making them anymore or who passed away. Competition bows I could see costing that much but these companies asking $1,600.00 for a hunting bow are going to get a reality check when their sales go down. Lots of good name brand bow companies who put their products in Bass Pro, Cabela's and other places, give you package deals for a great price and are now hiring bow techs to set them up for their customers. My second choice would be a PSE bow. I have owned some in the past, my buddy has been shooting them forever and I always shot great with them. What do you like for good hunting bows these days? Thanks.

I don't ever buy new bow, I let someone else, then buy it used at half the price. People buy a $1000 bow set up before bow season so they can hunt a month early and then November stick it back in the close for 11 months and then sell it and that when I come along. up

Yeah that's about right. If I buy used then I buy it from a shop who has looked it over before they bought it. I don't buy stuff like that from FleaBay because you usually end up with someone else's problem lol. Some members at the archery club that I belong to have bows for sale but trying to find a lefty with a short draw length is really hard. Just trying to find a lefty so I can change the draw length is a hard thing. I have a better chance of seeing Bigfoot lol. I shoot my bows all year round and shoot my recurves twice a week to make sure I stay consistent with them. I have a shooting lane out to 35 yards in my backyard and the archery club I belong to is 5 miles north of me. Two bow shops closed that I know of recently which is a shame. One in the Woodlands area and one up in the Madisonville area off of I-45. I live down the road from West Houston Archery but they mostly sell new Mathews bows only. I might have to wait till I take a trip up north to get one. Kittery Trading Post in Maine has a large selection of used bows that are always a great price. They also usually have a good amount of lefties in stock. Thanks and have a great day!

Even half price is way to high!

Yeah I'm not that guy. I buy new. New truck. New hamburger. New underwear. Then sell it off before the value on it tanks.

I feel your pain. the choice for us southpaws is limited, and a lot of stores do not keep them. My current bow is a Mission Ballistic. I lucked into this bow a couple of years ago, and found it on craigslist here in Dallas, new in box. a guys wife bought it online as a gift, and didn't realize she ordered a lefty. got a great deal on it, and even though it has "plastic" limb pockets, its been a great bow, zero problems. I'm looking for a second bow now, luckily we have some good pro shops in the dfw area..
