I personally think it's one of the best cam designs out there.

Hey Oz,
I looked at it and as you said different, I really like the CPS system and have been shooting the Darton Pro bows for 10+ years, I would like to get to look at one up close before making my mind up on this one. I am glad I saw this post, as I am planning to get a new before bow season,I will have to look at this new system hard. I thought I had my mind made up to get a new bowtech this year but maybe not....Here in the south Darton is not a popular bow, a lot of the guys here look at me funny when I say Darton, they haven't heard of them except for the lower end bows at academy or bass pro....The reason I bought the Maverick was b/c they said it was the only bow on the market to shoot more kinetic energy than draw weight....it does too @ 70lbs it is shooting like 76 ft.lbs.....I will try to find a dealer down here in the south, so I can put my hands on one of these and check it out...

I did a little research and there is only one dealer in the state of Texas and he only carries kids bows, doesn't look like I will get to try one out.....Oh well....
