Bowtech Tomkat
 
Anybody ever shot one? I'm interested in it because it's advertised as a "package" bow and should have everything I need on it. Also, how am I supposed to measure for draw length? Any tips are appreciated.

Hey bud,

I actually just purchased a Tomkat last fall and I absolutely love it. My bow guy (bowtech guy) as well as some others I've talked to really recommend it because apparently it is kind of a "starter" bow for bowtech, but its just as good as some of the top of the line, much more expensive bows from the other guys:D It's definitely very quick and very quiet, I don't have experience with other bows, but from what I know about this one it is definitely awesome

Also, other guys can help you more with this, but i think for draw length a good approximation is doing your wingspan and halfing it, but i'd get another opinion on that

The Tomkat is the most under-rated bow in the Bowtech line up. I had one for 2 years and loved it.

A member of my daughter's archery team shoots a Tomkat. It's an excellent bow and the draw is easily adjustable ober about 10" so it will adjust to your draw length.

DL on a tomkat is only adjustable through changing the mods, I am shooting a tomkat and the only advice I can give you is to buy the bow, naked.
It took me about 2 weeks to find out most of the stuff they put on is cheap, the quiver makes noise, the WB is hard to set up, etc.....

I do admit it is good for starting archery or bowhunting, but I wouldn't go hunting with that kind of gear on that bow.....
As for the bow itself, it is one quiet and fast puppy for it's price.....µ

I've had my 07' TomKat for over a year now and have nothing bad to say about it. As already stated, its as good as many bows that are twice the price. Its fast, quite, and very accurate.

I also agree that you should buy the bow nakid. However, it is not offered like that here in the US. So once you get it go ahead and take everything off of it and replace it with better equipment.

The stuff that comes on the bow is "good enough", but wasn't good enough for me.

To sum it up. I don't think that anyone would go wrong buying this bow. I've gotten a lot of attenion from high end bow owners when they see me shooting my bow.
