    I bought me another new bow. It shipped out today. So I should have it Wednesday or Thursday. Can't wait....!:woot: Will post some pics when it gets here. I went with the 2014 Hoyt Faktor 30, Realtree Xtra, #3 cam with 28.5" Draw length, 70lb. limbs. Might not get many responses since it not a Mathews...lol. :p Just poking at you all...lol. I got a GREAT deal on it. I'm putting one of my QAD HDX rests on it. Not sure which sight i'm gonna use yet.

    That's awesome. Was just about to pick one up but got a great deal on another energy 35. Very excited to see what Hoyt brings for 2015. Can't wait to see pics of it!

    Congrats. Hope it works out well for you. I have been considering looking into the Hoyt route but I really have no need to. I guess I'm just bored haha.

    Thanks guys, I shot one here at a local shop a while back and loved it. Those Z5 cams are nice for sure. Just couldn't pay what they wanted for it. They wanted the $899 plus tax and would not take a penny less. Sales tax here is 9.75% so it was like $990 out the door...I saved a LOT of money.

    I shoot a Pro Edge Elite for spots and 3D, the Z5 cams are really hard to beat.

    Yeah, I fell in love with the bow when I shot it a while back. I picked up a new Bowtech Destroyer 350 a few months back...got a great deal on it here locally, Got it shooting great, just don't like it as much as I thought I would. Real harsh draw cycle. It just don't seem to have the quality that Hoyt & PSE have. At least not to me it don't. A lot of folks like them though, I think I might sale it eventually.

    Hoyt are great bows! I'm still shooting the Alphamax 32 with no reason to change! Good luck with the new bow!

    awesome man can't wait to see, it, I shot a hoyt for a while before I outgrew it. I'd go back in a heartbeat! haha and try the HHA sights, they're amazing and worth every cent.

    My hoyt had that "crossbeam" that arched off the riser and rested on the wrist, took a while for me to get used to that too

    You may have been shooting a right handed bow lefty or vice versa. The riser bridge will never touch your hand if you holding it properly. I've seen people pick up my right handed bow lefty and the bar rests on their wrists but that the only time.
