Interesting. Rumor was back in January they were going to have a mid year release on a bow. Probably a longer ATA bow, since the Specialist is a whopping 2 years old now.

I heard rumors last year Bowtech was working on a carbon bow. Not sure if they had much success in the r&d in that or not.

I'll probably be disappointed....lol

I do not know about the long wait for a 370 IBO bow. SEveral years ago before Mathews came out with the Monsters, a good friend and Pro shooter for Mathews told me in person that he had just returned from the Mathews factory and had shot a bow that IBO'ed close to 400 fps. I had known this guy for a long time and had shot tournaments with him and as far as i know as honest as the day is long. Unfortunatley he died in a truck wreck a couple of years later. I ask him why Mathews would not release the bow and he said,"because it is a dual cam bow!" Later, they unveiled the Monster line. Is 400 fps IBO atainable, maybe, but you can bet your bottom dollar it will be a very stiff draw curve. Take what I said above however you want, I am just relaying what I was told by a very good friend and Mathews pro shooter. Of course if everyonne remembers the Oregon bows that supposedly blew the doors off every bow on the market with speed only to have the draw length 2" to 3" longer than 30". Their 30" draw was actually 32" to 33", I know, I ran their rep out of my shop when he brought those bows in and said he would outshoot any bow I had only to get shot down in my shop thru my chrono comparing apples to apples.

I saw Jim Burnworth shoot WAY over 400 fps with an 82nd a couple of years ago. But, the total arrow weight was only in the 200's.

I have personally shot a HCA bow over 400 fps with the ultra light arrows they sell and saw one before 1998 do the same.

Most Bowtech dealers got the call today, and were limited on #s ordered.
I ordered.
Frustrating to me for them to introduce a "Game Changer" bow, when most dealers are stocked.
Now, customers that are entertaining a new bow purchase might wait till the Knight is released.
I have no idea what this bow is.

I'm sure they can make a 400 IBO bow, but how loud is it going to be? How smooth will the draw be? I think those are the 2 factors that the engineers will struggle with. We'll get there but it'll be a few more years I think. IMO, the technology has plateaued a little bit.

I personally think companies are shifting gears a little bit. They tend to want to keep most their bows around 340 ibo. Just my observation.

It will change....the norm will go up I just think it'll take a few years for 370 to be common.....omen pro is rated at 366 I believe.

Id like to see a bow with 350 ibo at 32-33" ata with a 7" or bigger brace.....that would be ideal to me. However, DFC would mean something as well.....as long as it was as smooth as todays 330-340 ibo bows I would be happy.

I just don't think its attainable with todays technology. Someone would have to think of something very innovative......

Its already made bro. It's a 370 ibo with a 6 inch brace height. Not on the market yet. It's still in prototype mode. And i am sworn to secrecy. Its not one of the big companies. Only thing i dont like is its short. 32-33. I like 36-37. It may make 2014. Buy maybe not. If you think hard enough you know how I found out.

And there is no more Omen Pro. They changed the riser and several other things. The new one is the Omen Max. Same speed. 366. Supposed to be more comfortable.

It is!!!!

Best part is HCA has the best warranty in the buiss. They warranty their bows with those arrows. Down to 3 grains per pound. And the bow holds together.

I just looked at their web site.....the extreme is a good looking bow. I know nothing about them or their products.....the arrow look interesting. How do they hold up or lifespan of them??? the bows seem fast but how do they compare to big brands....like Mathews for example Im in the market to upgrade from my Diamond to an MR6

The arrows that HCA sells are in a 5.5 gpi and 6.2 gpi, very light but very stiff and very, very brittle. I had one explode out of my bow shooting thru a chrono. I will not try them again, but it could have already been cracked. their IBO is not as far up there as some, but they have a smooth draw and are quiet. Mine is a 09 Speed Pro set at 29" and 70#'s and with a 410 grain arrow is shot 314 fps and with a 560 grain arrow it shoots 270. that is with a 7" BH also. They have models with a 6" BH that are a lot quicker. HCA is a good company that had problems then the founders son, Nathan, bought out his father, Spencer, and things have turned around as far as their CS and methods of selling and dealing with people. I personally am very fond of their bows, been shooting a HCA bow since 1989 and have not found one I like any better in that time.

ya but they have to promote octane but the cable guard looks like a flex and a slide hoping for a bow like the carbon element but doubt that

After further review I think it may be a carbon slide rod with a rubber type cap on the end.

ok I'm convinced it is a slider so that means a long ata bow 35-39 ata target bow. there not gonna replace there line up with a better midgrade bow mid season. I think the specialist is getting replaced

Why would they bring out a target bow in the middle of.season.....maybe it real long, for.spots.maybe.

Destroyer le wasn't a target bow......it was a destroyer 350 with different limb graphics. A way to dig a few extra dollars out of.peoples pockets at the end of the year.
