the Intruder was my last bow, I put 9 deer kills, 2 turkey kills, and a coyote kill on it. I moved up to a vertex last year and the thing is a killing machine, 2 bucks and a doe about a 1/2 dozen squirrels in 2yrs with it. My buddy is the owner of the local archery shop and he also has always hunted with hoyt. he was conned in to using a mathews this year since the rep gave it to him free. (must be nice) He says next year he's going back to the hoyt.
