I cant help either But for what it may be worth I haven't heard any bad about them.

was looking at the diamond edge for my nephew nice bow and adjustable went with browning midas instead for price reasons

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky

Buy the new Matthews lite. At about 3 1/2lbs it would be hard to find a lighter better bow than that. At your age you probably won't have to worry anymore about your draw length changing either. There is no question that you would like that bow.

I guess i will be the diamond buster. 10 point needs to get on here and give his thoughts about them.. He had some trouble out of his and had to take it back to the shop a few times.. I dont remember the details.. Nothing major I dont think but small items several times. Plus you got to take into account thats coming from a 16 yr old that thinks if his bow is shooting off "its gotta be the bow" when its probably just him..

My neighbor went to the bow shop asking around and shooting different bows.. There was no one there he talked to that were glad they bought a diamond. The way he said it they talked very poorly of them.. Back then he was looking at a diamond because he hunted with 10 point a couple times and liked the look and style.

Diamond is made by bowtech but I dont know what shortcuts they took in order to make the bow cheaper.. Id look into it a little more..

I have been looking into it a little more...we went over to Gander Mountian and the guy said they are good from what he has gathered and there was another husband and wife there at the desk and the wife said she had a dimond and was pleased with it...

I have two friends that sell/tune/repair Bows. I called both and asked what they thought about Diamond Bows and
after a lot of chat they both agreed that the only problems they've ever seen with Diamond Bows were
loose or poorly installed add on parts like quivers, sites, peeps, etc.
Both said they aren't a hunters top choice but they do perform well after a good tune up.

ETD I think awhile back you mentioned you liked Michael Waddell as a hunter, is that right?
Reason I ask is because he shoots Hoyt and we all know Hoyt is the best. Michael wouldn't tell us no tales...
If you got a Hoyt, next time he's at one of your local shows, you could get him to Autograph it for you.

whichever you choose I wish you all the best of luck with it.

P.S. if you do decide to look at the Hoyts,
Check out the Hoyt Anvenger Plus that's
the one I'd recommend for you.

ive heard the bow its self isnt bad at all but if something goes wrong with it and you need the manuf. to do something since it isnt on bowtechs mainstream bows then they are bad about helping with it. good luck
