I actually just picked up a 2014 in Cobalt blue for $1,000. I am very happy!! It has GTX cams instead of Spirals but I'm happy.

Do I have this right, after all the debate and discussion you settle for a PCE with GTX cams? WHISKEY TANGO FOXTROT? Duh?

If you decide to keep it, and would like a spiral like cam feel you can order a spiral draw stop and set it one hole short for higher let-off and harder wall!

Crow,

Congrats and post pics! I was surprised you got the GTX cams over the Spirals but if you're happy that's all that matters.

Well the thing is...I wanted the PCE. I knew the PCE was going to cost me $1,300+ for any color with any cam. So when I saw that one in one of my favorite colors for $1,000, I went ahead and got it. My reasoning is this...the bow itself is what costs the big dollars. So I have that now. I can get a set of Spiral cams off ArcheryTalk or get a new set from a Hoyt dealer too...they run about $50 used. And then I think I will have to get a diff length string/cable set to fit the Spirals, but hey, we ALL shoot after market strings/cables anyway. So even then, that's just a total of about $120 more for the string/cable and cams. Which would put me in a nearly brand new 2014 PCE for basically $1,100. Which beats the devil out of paying $1,300+tax for one.

That's why I got this one \:\)

I understand your logic completely and thought along the same lines when I was shopping for my PCE. I couldn't find a bow with my specs and I wasn't fond of the $200.00 plus price of changing out the cams, threads and maybe even the limbs. The limbs have to be changed sometimes if when you hit the weight you are looking for!

Where's the pics?? Let me know what you think of the bow and GTX cams!

I may get down the road and decide I should have just waited on one with Spirals but I think I came out ahead by doing it this way. Like I said, everybody that I know that is serious about shooting bows, will ditch the stock strings on a bow anyway. So that was a gimme even if I bought a brand new bow. I will just order a set from my favorite string builder like I would have anyways...and just have him build it for the Spiral X specs.

The draw weight issue is iffy for me and my biggest concern. This one has 60# limbs on it for GTX cam system but from what I've researched, going to Spiral Xs will reduce my draw weight between 6 and 10 lbs...which would put me in the 50-54 pound peak weight zone. If the Spirals were a 75-80% let off, this would be a major issue for me and would not work. But since they are 65%...that still puts me with a decent holding weight. There seems to be more limbs on the classifieds than the cams...looks like #4 Spiral Xs are gonna be harder to find than what I thought. They get grabbed up extremely fast.

I haven't got the bow in yet. He just shipped it yesterday. Its due here Friday. But here are a couple of the pics he had in his ad:

What is the draw like with the GTX cams? That's about the only Hoyt cam I've never shot. I'm a big spiral fan myself. In fact, I just picked up a 2011 Burner from the classifieds.

Good looking rig, Crow.
