    I have a Martin Cheetah. Great little bow, never owned a martin before this one, but i think they now have a life time customer.

    I've been a diehard mathews man for several years. It's been 20some years since I shot 3D so I don't consider myself to be that good with a bow but anytime I can keep my group in the bottom of a pop can at 35 yards-THAT'S the bow(and other equipment) for me. Also,I've had problems in past with deer jumping the string. Havn't had the first 1 jump string since I switched to mathews. With the mathews model I'm using right now,When I very first shot this bow INDOORS,I watched the arrow sink in target and was still waiting for the bow to "go off".
    Honestly,a good shooter/hunter can kill a deer with just about anything-it's skill not equipment that determine success in the long run. Any of the top bows from any manufacturers will do a fine job so it boils down to personal prefefence.

    Hoyt Vulcan
    HHA Sight
    Trophy Taker Shakey Hunter Rest
    TruGlo Quiver
    Posten's Stabilizer
    BowTech Strings and Cables
    Easton Full Metal Jacket Arrows Pimped out by the Eric the Arrow Pimp
    Muzzy and Rage 3 Blade 100 Grain Broadheads
    Chocolate Lite Thumb Release
    BoJax on the string, stabilizer, and cable bar

    Darton maverick for me...
    if'n i was to make a switch i'd either go with a Bowtech or a Parker
    i know parkers are less then most of the top bows but the one i picked up felt good to me (anyone on here shoot one)?

    I think JDMiller shoots a Parker, I used to have one and they are good inexpensive bows. Their top stuff always gets good reviews.
