    I would not use anything other than a HOYT.....I have one numerous bow shoots with it, and even one guided antelope hunt in Wyoming..... I despise Matthews.....they kick like a mule...

    Just curious what others think I guess.......

    I just helped you out with your bow selection a little bit there Joe. After all with only three bows to choose from it wouldn't really be a scientific poll. LOL Guess which one I voted for.

    DUUUUUDE! You messed with my pole..........:mad:

    :) Nah, it's cool........thanks for more options...

    Today, all brands of bows are top of the line......but I still think Hoyt is number one.

    What makes Hoyt #1 in my mind, is when you shoot one, it just falls down.....like a bow should. It has an awesome follow thru....

    Matthews claim their bow does that, but I've shot several and they kick up......some guys like that, but it's not supposed to do that.

    Wheres bowtech? They have the fastest and best bows on the market. I dont like the new 2004 Black knight 2 though... too small of a brace height. The 2003 is the best all around bow ive ever seen. I dont know why they shortened the brace height to 5.5 on the new one. Oh well..... And for all of you who think the Black knight is too loud like i have heard about it try one out ull find out thats a bunch of bull. Or look into the VFT extreme. I was trying one out today next to a guy shooting a Matheus LX and the VFT was quieter and still gets 320+ FPS..... has a nice hard wall, smooth draw. The only thing i disliked about it was the break point on the draw was a little hard but what can you expect with a single cam thats producing that much speed.

    Personally I like Dartons. I am currently shooting a Darton Maverick XT. Very quite, fast and flat shooting bow.

    I had a custom bow built this past summer. A continental denali outfitted with hoyt Command Cams. 43" AtoA with a 9.5"+ brace set at 60lbs that will spit my 450gr hunting arrows at a blistering 221fps.

    My meat axe (cant' call the continental the meat axe til it kills sumtin) is a Clearwater powermag with hatchet cams.

    Also own 2 martins, one with furry cams and one with flight wheels.

    2 cams are better than 1 (or 1.5)!!!!! :p
