$1,350...whew. They better guarantee a few ASA wins. lol

Seriously, its funny that I'm hesitant about ordering one for that price when I'm the same guy that laid down $3500 for a metal detector and never batted an eye. lol

But I did learn one thing about that metal detector experience. Everybody I priced checked them with, gave me different prices and swore they were selling them as low as they could possibly sell them at. I heard prices from $4,700 down to $3,500 and everywhere in between. I'm betting these bows are gonna be the same way.

What brand metal detector????

Hoyt bows are priced way more competitively than the metal detectors! From the highest to the lowest dealer pricing for the PCE was about $150.00 difference when I price shopped them! If you think the Hoyts are high check out the prices of the German OK Archery models! They start at about $1800.00 and I saw a bunch of them at the FL Pro/AM, but I saw way more of the Hoyt PCE being lugged around. The top three at Vegas last week were shooting the PCE! The guy who finished 4th you probably never heard of was a guy named Levi Morgan shooting a no-name bow you've never heard of an Elite Energy 35! \:\/

We all know it's the shooter and not the bow, but some bows make it easier for us shooters who are nothing more than mortal men!

Btw, did your $3500.00 metal detector come with a lifetime warranty? Did it guarantee you that you would find what you paid for it in treasure? I still want to know what brand cost that much???????

Dixie -- The detector was a Minelab GPX 5000. I guess you could say that Minelab is the Hoyt of the metal detector world. The GPX is a specialized gold machine that we started using to Civil War relic hunt because it punches super deep into all ground types, including this particular region of TN, north GA, and northern Virginia. It has just a 2 yr warranty. No guarantees but it did have one thing working in its favor that you can't do with a bow...top notch performance from one person to the other. I never would have bought one had it not been for walking up on my buddy at a Civil War winter camp, and finding him laying on his side with his arm down in a hole past his elbow. I talked to him while he was digging...he had a GPX and I did not. He asked me if I could help pinpoint the target with my machine...my detector was a high end detector at the time, and I couldn't hear anything at all. He let me run his detector over the hole and sure enough...a good signal right where he had the hole dug. I had to stick around to see what it was. After a few more minutes digging, I watched him dig a SINGLE .58 CAL MINIE BALL from a hole up to his arm pit. If I had not watched him do that and heard that signal for myself, I wouldn't have ever believed it. As soon as I got home, I had my unit for sale and was finding a GPX to buy. I had mine for a little over a yr and paid for itself. Ended up getting out of the hobby for a while and sold mine; but I got out of it, the same amount that I had originally paid for mine. They raised the cost of 'em now...they are more like $4700 or so. If I ever got back in it heavy again...I'd have another one.

UT --- The 3 bows are all gone. I had my great big shoot off, in which I found the one I shot best out of the 3. The other two got sold and traded for my Open setup. One of them I traded for a Axcel AX3000 sight with Viper scope, two different power lens, and LP Light kit. The other one I sold and used the money to get a target stabilizer set and Stan Shootoff release with...in which I did cringe when I spent that amount of money for nothing more than a 28" front bar, 12" back bar, weights, mount, and disconnects.

I honestly can't believe I have this much wrapped up in accessories for the bow.

Man Id love to have a PCE but looks like I'm going to continue to be a one bow guy for right now. That's why I got the Spyder Turbo, it's a great recreation target/ hunting bow.

Crow what's going to be your hunting rig?

I had a Stan Shootoff last year... Excellent thumb trigger. Did you get the 3 or 4 finger? Medium or large?

I actually don't plan on hunting with a bow. To be honest, I kind of lost the desire to want to bow hunt. I've found that I enjoy muzzleloader hunting and rifle hunting much more these days. Deer with a bow used to give me the ole thump thump of the heart...now days the only thing that does that, is pulling into a Pro/Am archery shoot.

Regarding the Stan. I got a 4 finger medium. Its not came in as of yet. A few yrs ago I had an SX2 in Medium that fit me pretty well. I got this one used off the classifieds for a good price. I really wanted a 3 finger but couldn't pass the 4 finger up for the price.

It's a thrilling feeling when you get to a Pro/Am and see so many people toting a bow...WOW!
