IMHO, I'd wait a few months to see what 2014 brings.
Depends on what you are looking for in a new bow. I like a longer ATA, less sharp string angle, and I like to keep the DW down because of aging shoulders. The MR-6 would be my choice now if I were to get a new bow ... but I have the original Monster and it is a tack driver. At 63#/28.25" it shoots a 5 gr/lb arrow at 325 fps and a 492-gr arrow at 270 fps. The Monster is not the smoothest drawing bow, but at 60# it is comfortable and manageable ... at 70# not so much. The draw backs on the Monster-series bows are: - Finicky to tune with cable actuated rests. Works best with shoot through rests or limb actuated rests. - Heavy. OK to pack in a mile or so to a stand, but for covering a lot of miles in a spot and stalk hunt they are burdensome. - In addition to paper tuning, walk back tuning, etc. they really need to be Creep Tuned to get a solid back wall and optimal accuracy.
