    I usually don't chime in on stuff like this but thought I'd share a bit of info from someone that has been on their team for a few years.

    The Experience had a lot to do with building something to appeal to a different market than they traditionally cater to. It was a strategic move they chose to make as a company. If you think they just suddenly ran out of innovative ideas think again. I'm confident in saying you will learn differently in the future. BowTech has been at the head of the pack for innovation and performance for 15 years now. Outside of Rex @ Darton they have arguably contributed to more industry changing and currently used designs and technology than anyone in the industry today.

    Historically BowTech has not gone after the market segment that prefers smooth, quiet, and forgiveness. There is a huge market segment that prioritizes these characteristics over bleeding edge technology and raw speed. There will always be a market segment that prefers those traits in a pro shop only bow over innovation and speed. One of the biggest manufacturers in the world has built one of the most loyal followings in the industry doing nothing but targeting that space. Without a bow like the Experience in the lineup BowTech won't appeal to that market. Now they can and will.

    Again.......if you think BowTech has plateaued and they have run out of innovative ideas........time will tell.

    I got a call today from Jason at BowTech and he let me know the video of this bow was out.... I mentioned how quiet it was about it at the ATA show... I'd love to know who leaked it to you and I'm sure we'll never know... that person likes their job and likely doesn't want the knowledge out. ;-)

    Tell Jason he should have done a better job of keeling the bow silent and he wouldn't have this problem, lol.

    The Carbon Knight - The Lightest Premium Bow Ever Made - YouTube


    So much for the little mouse that gave me the specs a while back. Specs for the Knight 3.2 OUNCES. 330 fps, A2A 31 in and 7 in brace height. Seems like Bowtech's version of the Mathews Helim. Lighter is not always necessarily better. The bow still has to be balanced in any shooting situation. A hunter may have to still shoot with the quiver on to help out. I like how they priced their carbon bow much less than Hoyt. Nice little upgrade to the Assassin. Looks like more carbon risers are coming up in the near future for Bowtech.
