    I did a superimpose of the pic of the V3 on top of a GTX cam, and the V3 is a lot rounder.

    what is the SVX like, Marcus? similar to Spiral? very seriously considering ordering one now...

    Thanks for photos, Marcus. Really looks more softer shaped cam...

    here is my crude overlay of the cam comparison.

    black VX3 on the back, silver GTX on the front. strings are parallel and the axles are aligned. obviously one could zoom the GTX cam more or less but this seemed to represent the overall difference in shape well enough. the VX3 cam has about the same degree of eccentricity at the full draw position, but should have a less pronounced hump in the draw force curve. it will will be interesting to see a plotted curve.

    next week hopefully, although I will probably take the time to build a new set of strings for it from day one rather than tune the thing twice. >_< I loathe faffing about with peep sights, although my OCD doesn't help.

    found this on AT, DFC of SVX vs Spiral Pro. the Spiral Pro bow was set approximately 3lbs lower maximum draw force and was also set to a lower letoff, so concentrate on the shape of the ramp down to the valley and the flat spot at the end for the SVX cams as the most interesting features. those suggest SVX is going to be a very pleasant performance shooting experience to me.

    I spent this afternoon shooting a Spiral bow with an AAP solid peg (stops like the proverbial brick wall) and I really found it little different to an RKT with a solid stop, and look at the DFC for those - and I regard them as very approachable compared to Fuels. http://www.archery-forum.com/showthr...l=1#post377318.

    definitely looking forward to my new baby.

    Finally got to fire some shots from the Prevail today. Only had a few. Best Hoyt of that style I've ever shot. The SVX cam is fantastic! The "soft" option peg is still firm. (not Conquest 4 soft)
    Really liked it.

    The Klash is available with a full 15 to 70 pound draw weight range, as well as an all-new 50 pound max draw weight configuration which maximizes bow performance at draw weights 50 pounds or lower. Both of these configurations easily adjust to draw lengths anywhere within the 18 to 29 inch range. This adaptable bow will last for years, growing along with the developing archer.

    Just saw a rumour that Hoyt are not going to make a 27 inch recurve riser this year.

    The 27 inch Faktor is in the catalog but it's no longer listed on the website.

    Anyone heard anything concrete?

    This has been confirmed by Hoyt that no 27" risers will be offered this year.

    A bit annoyed they have dropped all options for this, will need to reconsider future Hoyt purchases in light of the lack of any warnings or notice.

    Leeds to what else to use? any suggestions.......

    I would use a 25 inch riser with long limbs.
    It will have a better force-draw curve than a 27 inch riser with medium limbs.

    This is a bit risky, but have you considered 27 inch risers released in ..... previous years?

    Only works until they're sold out. And then you're limited to 2nd hand or not a Hoyt. We've had 2 6.5 foot beginners asking for bow shopping advice in the past couple of months - options for people that size just got limited a bit more. I'm fine - I'm an industry standard 28 inches.
