    I was always a Hoyt fan but decided to try out a Matthews. Got a Drenalin LD and got to say its my best bow ever.

    NAP Mechanicals Scorpion
    Donker Stabilizer
    Bohning Quiver
    Tru Ball Release

    AND A LOT OF DEAD DEER BOW KILLS

    Mathews is the best all round bow IMO, feel good, shoot good, hold value, and quality. Besides a string a Mathews will stay as close to its orginal condition and shooting ability better than any other brand over use and time. I would say if I wanted speed then I would go with another brand bow...but I tend to go for dependabilty and blood trails.

    Archery Research AR 34 AWESOME BOW!!!! I've shot Hoyt - okay, Martin - great bows, PSE - pretty good, Browning - sweet, Mathews - pretty good, and now this one.

    To the dude talking about Parkers. They're sweet. My buddy has one and I've shot it from time to time. Hard to beat for the money.

    302 fps and sighted in to 80 yards at the moment. I wont shoot at a deer that far right now but if it comes within 60 yards of me its down.

    Backup bows are....
    PSE Mach X
    PSE Mojo
    AR 34 Blade
    AR 31 camo and
    PSE Money Maker if I get a wild hair to try it out in the woods. I have many others but these are my favorite deer huntin rigs. The X-Force and Mach X are the best of all bows out there for me right now or at least until I get my new Dream Season in with the 80% letoff.

    "Here we go with the bowjunk hype again.:rolleyes: Ever wonder what bowtech bows would look like if they didn't have mathews to copy off of?"


    ever wondered what mathews would have look liked if they had copied everyone elses good ideas? all bows are the same any more, bowtech are some bad bows for the speed demons, mathews are good solid hunting and target bows, martin is still the best bang for the buck and theyre septer 4 still continues to dominate the indoor world, pse is starting to make some good bows, elite will be a company to watch out for if all the patent lawsuits settle, hoyt is still the best all around toughest quality built bow, bear is making a run for some great bows, but bottom line is everyone has a budget on thier bows, shoot what you can afford and what fits, then haggle your buddies for what they shoot cause its all fun and games really. truth is the technology is the same just about everywhere you look so every one is in the same chapter of the book and on the same page but some are just reading a little faster then others. just my honest 2 cents.
