I've owned a lot of bows over the years, but none of them have equaled my mathews. Untill my shoulders went out I shot custom takedown recurves. That's the only reason I went to a compound. With prices very high to fully rig one it's not for everyone especially those on a buget. Hoyt bows are very good bows I just don't like the looks. Everyone just needs to find the best bow in their price range get it fitted to them shoot it and shoot it and shoot it. I'll take a broadside double lung hit everytime.
