All I can say is, shoot it before you buy it (any bow).

I just got my Tomkat in April, and I am pleased to death with it. I shot some PSE bows, some Diamond (Bowtech's cheaper line) as well as other bowtech models.

I dont think there is a better bow package for the money than the Tomkat.

i would say that it is one of the best bows for the money because of the adjustable draw lenght, craftmensshipand price

I like your thought processes. I think the Tomkat is an excellent bow but as the others stated, if you can, try it before you buy it. No two bows are alike and you never know how this one is going to fit you.

I bought one this year(June),And must say, Love it!!! But there are alot of Good Bows out there. I dont buy a new bow every year, so i gave alot of thought to this bow. And it fits me well, they are indeed higher priced then the last bow i bought like 12 years ago, But i guess what you have to ask yourself is can i afford this with out taking away from my many hunting trips that i take through out the year, i normally hunt Indiana/Kentucky and with the gas price i may have to stay home and hunt my land.But back to the Tomkat shoot one and you'll see why i bought one>>>>.

I think that the Tomkat is a great bow ,but as other's said you need to shoot it for yourself ,what's shoot's great for me might not suit you,You have to use your own gut feeling on this bow ,but being a BT I'm sure it's a great bow .

I think it is a nice little shooter especially for the price. A customer brought one into the shop last week to have it tuned and some new accessories installed. I was really surprised with how nice it shot. I will have to look at adding a few to our lineup.

I've had a Bowtech TomKat for about a year. HuntersFriend.com was selling a ready to shoot, all the arrows, release, sight, hard case for a little over $400. I paid them, later they e-mailed me saying it was backlogged several months.
Anyways it shoots very well, light to carry, the short length makes it easy to manage. The track on the wheel is shallow, and the string did come off once. The factory string is not the best, the serving does shift and periodically has to be slid back in place. Mark the bolts that hold on the limbs, as they do move. Little dab of fingernail polish will let you know.
A great little shooter for a small to medium frame person... My 6'5" friend finds is too small.
