    I bought my Spyder the day after the Hoyt rep. came to the archery shop here in Vegas that I go to...(shot out to Pacific Archery ). He comes every year....so I was able to try the model out that he had with him at the shop.

    I love my Bear Carnage so much that new bows don't even tempt me right now. It's fast and quiet, and it sends arrows where I aim (if I do my job right). I guess I lean more toward the "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" way of thinking. And I'm cheap.

    If your talking about the Bowtech Insanity? if so, and for what it's worth...the guy that I had build me new strings and cable and super-tuned it with paper and a hooter shooter, made a comment that the Bowtech Insanity's are a lot harder to keep in tune....

    No not knocking it at all, just thought that was funny. No bow is hard to keep in tune as long as you have quality strings.

    ...No worries, I was just trying to nail down the "Insanity" whether it was a Bowtech or another Bow maker...lol they change model names so much I can't keep up. I need to state my point better....as bows gained in speed and lower brace height. I think they are less forgiving than earlier bows. And I want to make sure my equipment is right, cause heavens knows, I am the weak link in the shooting chain....

    I usually stick with one bow year after year. Technology really doesn't change that much every year anyway. Shooting 5 yr old matthews right now, bought a newer one off Craigslist super cheap off a guy that buys a new one every year. Looks and shoots like a brand new one.

    Ya it diddnt really have a problem with tuming. It felt like a PSE just wierd to shoot for me. I have always been a matthews guy until I changed to this and it wasnt my cup of tea. I also noticed what was looking like fletching contact on the bus cables. With the closest bowtech dealer 3.5 hours away I decided to get rid of it
