    What are you guys/gals think for this year? New concept or just a revamp of the Halon?

    Just curious, what do you guys do with your older bows once you get news ones. I mean I am sure you keep the previous year model but like do you keep 5 years worth of bows or do you sell them?

    Maybe they take Co2 canisters for an extra boost :)

    Its going to have to be something really special to make me get rid of my Halon 6. I think the Halon is pretty much the best all around hunting bow for me. If anything shedding some weight on the Halon would be nice but not a huge factor.

    I typically hang on to 2 or 3 at any given time. I've given a few to relatives and sold a couple to friends.

    It's going to be pretty sweet to see the lineup in a week. They knocked the target lineup out of the park

    32 or 33 inch ata halon. I think they are keeping the no cam so I wonder if they will make any changes to that. This is all speculation by the way.

    Halon 33 33" ATA or 333fps?

    I'd sure like to see a Halon 7 with a 33-34" ATA that weighs 4#, shoots 345 and has Optifade Elevated II on it

    A 33" Halon will intrigue me. I loved last years Halon 6. If they can get a 33", and keep it right around 4 pounds it may force my hand.

    I was big on Obsession last year and their new lineup was kind of just meh....Xpedition is going to get a look though...

    I know how your bow looks should matter, but bows are so expensive I need to like how my bow looks as well as how it shoots. Even though my current bow is black, I really dislike solid colored bows. I only bought it because I got it dirt cheap when I needed a lighter draw weight bow due to an injury. I have also never liked how Lost Camo looks on a bow. If they get some different patterns they may be on my radar. I just wish they weren't so heavy. With two bad biceps I have a hard time with heavy bows anymore. I can't shoot as long as I like to shoot.
