the best bow is the one that fits your style nobdy can tell you which one to get you have to figure it out on your own. So go out and shoot them both to see what one is the better fit for you. You also cant go by which one is cheapest, try as many as you can.

i gotta agree with critter on this also. try to get to a shop that has all the bows your lookin at. shoot all of them and take your pick. i would not be doing you justice if i told you which one i thought was better for you.

i would tell you if it was a good quality bow but i dont own any of those you have listed. i shoot a hoyt and have been happy with its performance over the years.

yup that sums it up

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

Definitely have to find what fits you best. For me, Bowtech is the answer and I have shot Hoyt's, PSE's, Mathews, Parker. All are great but Bowtech is my recommendation.

I Would Have To Agree With Them All. You Have To Really Find The Bow That Fits You And Your Style Of Shooting. I Like My Pse But Its An Older Model. Just Try Shoot All The Ones You Are Interested In.

actually i helped a friend get a bow for himself a while back and if I were you I would at least take a look at diamond bows, they are good for the price but the one that is going to really catch on I believe is the martin bengal . I shot it and was very impressed. it shoots great and it is very compact yet forgiving. I have a rytera bullet x but that one runs around 800$ but if I had seen the bengal first I would have certainly bought it. it is a nice looking and a great shooting bow, I am not kidding and i don't hold any major brand preferences , I just shoot them to see what I like and if I were you I would look at both of them also just to expand your options...

I suggest going to a pro hop and shooting several ones in your price range. Ask the shop pro to shoot each bow so you can listen to them for excessive noise. You should be concerned with noise, hand shock, vibration, weight just to start. I shoot a Mathews and love it.
