Default 2008 Upgrades?

So what are you guys planning on upgrading to for 2008, as far as bows and equipment goes? I know many of you have already done this, and some are not upgrading at all.

For myself.

I'm going with a new bow, and still debating whether or not I wan't to keep mine.

2008 Elite GTO
28.5" draw 60#limbs
"Ninja" all black

and the accessories

Spott Hogg Hogg-It .010" w/ wrap
Limbdriver Pro black
Fuse Axium 10" black
Victory HV arrows

Other gear;

Hoping to buy a new Climber and a GPS

Going back to a pendulum sight, probably Vital Bow Gear. Got a new bow this year a BT Guardian, but the dealer I got it at will let you trade for a new bow every year for $170 boot and that may be tempting.

No real upgrading for me. I still love my '07 Vectrix XL. I will be getting a LW Alpha hang-on for '08 though.

Just decided to get myself a Diamond Marquis, it's not quite as dead as the Guardian or General, but man is it a tack driver. Plus it feels lighter than either of the other two, despite what the scales read.

I am going to try the Rage 2-blades for next year. I am also going to upgrade to some FMJ too.

My Christmas gift was just delivered. I ordered myself some Dayone camo in ASAT. Can't wait to try it out.

The only thing that I may try is the new trophy ridge arrows, but I am staying with the commander for at least next year.

Im thinking bout the Marquis, though its the only new one ive shot i love but still open minded about others.

Only thing I'll be upgrading to is some more camo. Probably some Enigma in the wolkskin seeing as I already have some Predator and ASAT.
