I feel left out here lol I shoot a Diamond but I cant complain at all I like the way it shoots. My son who is also 14 yrs old has a Diamond and killed his first deer with it and I couldnt be more proud. While his buddys are all shooting crossbows he is the only one shooting a compound. I think he enjoys it as much as I do. I am thinking maybe next year getting a new bow and probly should shoot several diff ones but I just cant see spending 1000 dollars on a bare bow. I mean the prices are pretty rediculous. makes me want to keep mine cause it kills just fine ya know?

it is rediculous I like the hoyt mainly because of the hand grip fits me very well & it was what my bow guy recommended on my last bow so I have stuck with them I own a rampage XT $600 bare I asked him what was so different about the Matrix & Element (carbon fiber bows) He told me the riser that was it same limbs, same cam just a carbon fiber riser for over $600 more. That was not a hard decision at all
Your Last line say's it all if it kills fine why get a new one

this is where the bow manufacturers could make the biggest improvement. build and sell the same bows they have right now, with no physical improvements at 1/2 the cost to the customer.

Anyone looking into a new bow should at least try out a Martin. They are very high end bows for a very mid level price. They are also USA made, for over 60 years. I love mine and will only buy Martin from here on out. They also have amazing customer service.

As of now: '07 Martin Jaguar compound vertical bow. 55* draw weight, 29" draw length. 28" Beman, ICS. Bowhunter 400's 8.4 gpi arrows.
