New Bow

well I still miss my old Hoyt but I have to say the New Mathews ZXT is smooth as silk, accurate & extremely quiet. Like I said I still miss my Rampage XT but my Shoulder doesn't
was nervous getting it less then a week to go to my NY trip but I got it dialed in in less then 10 minutes & have been shooting over 50 arrows a night cant stop shooting it & no issue with drawing it back
the old Rampage I was about done after 15-20 arrows

Old one was a good bow. But the new one is just as good if not a little better. Or at least on the poor shoulders.

HM I am starting to it does shoot very nice little heavier then the Hoyt but more compact & i think little more forgiving
Slower but very pleasant to shoot

Hutch I was almost in tears when I traded it in but was just getting
more & more frustrated every time it happened so there was no sense in keeping it

Ford Chevy but something new! I shot Mathews back a few years and now X-bow. Staying in the woods, that's the goal. Good luck with the new set-up.

Cant be more correct with that statement could have been a wasted trip to NY if it acted up but now I am getting excited to go again

Sorry to hear about the problems. It happens even to the best of us. But NH is doing pretty good right now. Seen a lot of deer being dragged out.
