I think you have narrowed down to 3 good bows. I personally shoot a Parker Phoenix and honestly it has served me well BUT if I were going to buy a new bow I would consider one of the other bows you mentioned. There's nothing wrong with my Parker but when I hold a Mathews or a PSE or any of the other hi-end bows they seem more technologically advanced . I don't know what the prices are on the bows your looking at or what kind of money you want to spend but hold each one and shoot them if you can and you'll know when you pick up the bow for you. Well I guess I wouldn't buy a Mathews but only because everyone I know that shoots one is so smug and pompous that I don't want to be in that crowd. But they are good bows.

Well said Berk. The bow companies you listed are all good. Now it just comes down to which one feels better to you.

As far as adding the bowfishing attachments to it and how it would shoot I have not a clue which bow would be better.

Buy a Mathews for deer hunting. You need something lite for the fishing like an old white tail hunter. I always used low poundage for the fishing arrows.
