Default Buying new bow..hard time choosing...HELP

I just recently sold my old hoyt bow. I loved that bow, had it for 5 years, and it shot smooth, and was quiet..but its time i get a newer bow, that shoots a little quicker, and a littler newer technology..but..im having a hard time choosing between two bows.. I really want the new hoyt carbon element. but cant afford it..so ive narrowed it down to the diamond fugitive and the martin exile fury pro. they both have good review from what ive seen, but there is no bow shops near by that have either bow in stock for me to shoot...so im hoping you guys have one of two, and can help me decide which bow to pick....Their both in my budget..Im leaning more torwards the diamond fugitive,...but the martin exile fury is 200 bucks cheaper, which would leave me room to upgrade the rest, and sights. they both come in R.A.K packages...they both shoot in the 330 range...and both have same left off and all..hoepfully you guys have one of the bows or have shot one of the two..and can help me decide..
Thanks guys..

If you were looking at the hoyt carbon element look at the Hoyt Rampage XT it has everything the Element has but an aluminium riser & for half the money I love mine fast, quiet, smooth draw look at my review under the hunting gear section

I would have a hard time buying a bow I couldn't shoot and would never buy one I didn't even see in person to hold n feel. I would rather buy what I know feels good and fits me than buying one and forcing myself to fit the bow.

If it doesn't fit you must admit, a little spin off from OJ.. you made a costly mistake by buying online.

Hey Matt, all you're gonna find out by asking who likes what is just that, "I like this" and "I like that". I can tell you that I like Diamond, I don't know if I like all Diamonds, but I know I like the Diamond Liberty, which is not made anymore. ALL the newer high tech bows are nice anymore, with parallel limb design and giant single speed cams. What I would do if I was you, I would pound the net and find out who actually sells the bows you are considering then contact those places and see that they have them for you to demo. Just plan on doing an all day road trip if you have to and go and shoot each one, even if you have to drive to 2 or 3 different places. You will probably find small differences between them, then just make the decision. Besides that, if you are a true bow huntin' addict, you won't keep that bow more than 2 years before you'll be tradin' it off on the next "new best bow". My 2 cents!
