            Kris Schaff ; Elite to Hoyt.

            Hoyt certainly have scored a few notables.
            Maybe they believe their unchanged flagship target bow for 2019 is worthy of some further promotional dosh ?

              Two year run per flagship is pretty standard for Hoyt.

                The Prevail is now 3 years this year.
                This is a good thing as its a solid bow, and honestly they have been changing stuff for the sake of it the last few models. The downside of course is there is little need for people to replace it unless they are changing brands. But then Mathews don't turn over models every 1-2 years like Hoyt does and it doesn't hurt them.
                As a retailer the constant change isn't always a good thing, people stop buying if they thinking holding out for a new model is a good idea. For example if you bought a Hoyt RX-1 3 months ago it's now a superseded model, but if you bought a Mathews Triax it's still current. It doesn't really matter as they still shoot great but some people it does impact.

                  There you go. I did some precursory checking but fell into the trap of looking for info to confirm what I thought was the introduction date and nothing further.
                  If I'd bought one, I'd have at least a user manual to refer a date to. I haven't shot anything since January, so I'm at least a year behind after ten years of caring.

                  Mathews also bring out something quite different from time to time.
                  Hoyt appear to be a bit more conservative.
