Hoyt Raptor Compound Bow
The Hoyt Raptor compound bow was released in 1997 and remained available for sale in various guises until 1998. Possibly the most popular version of the Raptor was the Raptor Carbonite which featured carbonite limbs. It was also possible to buy the bow with one of a number of cam systems such as the Master Cam, Command Cam or the Advance Cam.
In each case the size of the bow was substantial when compared to the more compact compound bows that are available today. At around 38.5” the Raptor provides the shooter with a significantly sized bow. Also significantly sized is the brace height making this a bow that is big on accuracy and a very forgiving type of bow.
Look for the types of Raptor compound bows such as the Redline, Excel, Intruder or the Carbonite. Each bow features different materials or designs that were used in the construction of the bow limbs or cams. In each case, however the importance was placed more on the accuracy of the bow rather than the speed.

What they're saying in the forums about the Hoyt Raptor
Another nice thing about your bow is that it will most likely be very "forgiving" meaning easy to shoot well-an important point for someone just getting into bowshooting. It will also likely to be more easily tuned as bows today are like thorobreds-they are designed to get every last foot per second of speed that they can get within their design,whereas your bow was designed (i believe?) before the "speed race" got underway good. In short-I think your bow should shoot very well indeed until you're ready to commit and upgrade to a current design.
it is a good bow. Hoyt has been in the archery business for many, many years. As long as it has been taken care of there isn't a whole lot that can go wrong with it. I've been shooting the same "old" Mathews for around 10 years now and it still shoots great.
It is an excellent bow if you are not a newbie bow shooter. The geometry on that bow might be a little unforgiving to a new archer. Can't help with the current price on those though.
