They are expensive, but most of the top bows are. We spent about 4 hours shooting Mathews and Hoyt. The new no cam might be a tad slower but it shot the cleanest and even made me want to go back to a compound again....... I can't say enough about the owner of the shop we went to, especially for the first time, devoted nearly 4 hours to just my son and I. His shop, super clean with an indoor range out to 35 yds, had nice bales and every game animal in it, safety was a top priority. The shop put Bass Pro and Cabelas' to shame and only 40 minutes drive. Top notch service to the max!
