Default 05 allegiance vs o8 allegiance

I was wondering if bowtech has changed this bow in the past few years or if it is the same as when it came out?

It has changed slightly. The grip, riser weight/riser slightly but for the most part, it's similiar. One of my fellow staffers loved the 06 over them all but is ordering an 08 to keep forever.

The grip is thinner on the new ones as ours (I have an 06) has the one piece grip and the new ones are two peice on both sides of th handle.

The cams on the 05 were not mod adjustable. the 06, 07, & 08 have mod adjustments plus the option of smooth or speed mods. I think Rob has everything else covered.

I had an 05 for 2 years and it shot very well. I have had the pleasure of shooting the new ones and personaly I believe they are by far a sweeter bow. The grip fits better they are lighter and just seem to fit me better than the 05 version. If you are interested they are deffinetly worth looking at and try shooting one.

Other than the model name I don't think anything hasn't changed.
