    2014 Hoyt Carbon Spyder

    Went to my local bow shop to check out the new Hoyt Carbon Spyder. I was hoping they had the Turbo version or a 34 but the 30 I drew was great. Anybody else had the opportunity to shoot one as well?

    I did. I'm a newbie to archery but hooked on elk now so I'm in. I couldn't see the advantages being worth the money. I loved how it shot but 500 more than aluminum to shave a few ounces? I just can't see it.

    yea I definitely agree with you on that. Probably once everyone gets on board making carbon bows then the prices will drop.

    The biggest seller in my opinion for a carbon bow is that it doesn't get cold to the touch like metal or wood does. Still not worth the price for me either but I think that is more important, along with carbon being stronger.
    Now therefore, please take your weapons, your quiver and your bow, and go out to the field and hunt game for me.

    I'm still waiting for the turbo to come in. I might just go with the 30

    shot the carbon spyder today. That thing is absolutely money! Then I shot the faktor and thought why would anyone pay $500 more for a carbon spyder when the differences were barely recognizable to me. Granted I'm not a bow expert by any stretch, just my 2 cents.

    I'm in the same boat as you are, had a CS 30 on order and then canceled because I wanted to shoot the CST and compare. Problem is there's not a CST to be found within 200 miles and my patience is starting to fade a bit. Trying to resist reordering the CS 30
