Hey just a quick note, I shoot a Mathews and it's by far the best bow that I have ever owned. I have a good friend that is going to buy a Mathews after his new Hoyt let him down (he's a club shooter). I'm sure everyone will give you some advise on brands and stories on others so do your homework and make a choise. There are several really good bows out there and a great many run of the mill bows. The old saying you get what you pay for is basically true by my. Fully loaded top of the line bows will top out over $1000.00 today. I shoot Easton Axis 400 carbon arrows. Hope this helps some.
