If you plan on spending upwards of $900 wait !! If not now is a good time.

Except for 2013 pricing on them? could be wrong but worth a wait ? You've come this far. The nox is a great bow!

The good new is that the Nox will holds its value. Not much loss in investment when buying a 'bur. More reliable than the stock market!! :mrgreen:

My 2 cents ...I have a exomax that I do love..But I just bought an Ibex. Speed is great but how much do you need? I killed the biggest deer of my life with a gt curve that is 300 fps.

Love mine. Use it for 3D tournaments. Picked it for the speed. With its flat trajectory, I can be out a little bit with my distance estimate and will still be inside the 10 ring

As for waiting, if you do not need the bow right away, why not wait. Best keep all your options open to fill your crossbow needs.

New and improved Matrix on the horizon....what do YOU think?! :mrgreen:
Least that will happen is some great deals on 'older' renditions.

I think i would wait to see all the options the only thing about new models is that you may not really be able to buy one until who knows when .
You will be able to see a picture one and get the specs of it after the A.T.A show in January but when they are on store shelf's is a whole different matter.
