New bows?

I think the industry has reached a temporary standstill as far as technology.The speeds are incredilble and i dont how much more they can go.The last big jump was PSE with the X force and its speeds.I havent seen a new bow interest me in a while.What do you guys think the next big advancement will be if any?

I think we will just see more weight reduction as they discover better composites. Mathews just put out the Helim that weighs only 3.5lbs.

Speed

I think we are still going to see another jump in speed. You know these companies want to be the first to hit the 400 fps. I agree also that things are going to keep getting lighter.

I said after the 2011 Improovments, I didnt think PSE could improove the flagship bows. and their really wasnt any industry changing breakthroughs in the 2012 line. But when change does come it will be in the same trend they have been moving all along. Speed, quietness and shootability. nothing comes close to a PSE.

Easy there Predator GET SERIUOS GET HOYT LOL
I do agree wth the the advancements in the weight, speed, quietness & shootability I think all the bow manufactures have room to work with here
weight may be the toughest I think only reason I say that is they need material that is strong & lightweight but at the same time keep the cost down look at the Hoyt carbon fiber line shaved about .5 pounds off the bow but very expensive because it is a time consuming process not many average hunters can afford a $2000 bow (setup)
Plus I think they can also go to far with weight reduction it still has to have the shootability. maybe it is just me but I seem more steady with a little weight behind it.
For me I think the bows are plenty fast enough
I would like to see them work on quietness and shootability without sacrificing speed & weight

I can't keep up with all the new bows. Seems like a new one will come out every 6 months. Still shooting my Bowtech Tomcat.

I agree Kemster my hoyt ramage XT will most likely be my last I bought at the end of last year. upgraded only because I wanted something a little more compact. killed 2 deer this year with it so unless the deer start moving faster like couger speed I see no need for all the hoopla with them but it is funny when you think that it is just a compound bow what else can they do to it one of the manufacturers come out with something that just makes you say WOW
