    Hopefully before next season I wil be purchasing a bow. My buddy has a Matthews that I really like. I also have herd good things about Hoyts. Who do you guys thinks makes a better bow?

    Everyone will have their favorite. Shoot all of them and get the one that feels best to you.

    For what it is worth, I have been shooting Hoyt all along and have never had a problem.

    Personally I shoot a mathews, but ghak said it best get out to a shop and shoot several bows. Which is smoother on the draw, which is smoother on the release, what feels the best in your hand. Good luck

    Both are great bows. Shoot them both and see what you like. Good luck.

    Ditto.
    From a guy that shoots Matthews I would never stear anyone away from another good bow, as Hoyt's are. Since bows are almost more of an extension of yourself than long guns, you need to buy the one that "fits" you.

    Let the bow pick you, not the other way around. You'll be glad you did in the long run.:tu

    I'm a Matthews guy myself, but the best answer to your question is what you feel most comfortable shooting. Both are QUALITY bows.

    I shoot a Mathews but Hoyt makes an excellent bow also. Try as many as you can and pick what feels best for you. Good luck. Seth

    I know you didnt mention it but Bowtech bows are great! They are equally as good as the two you mentioned. All you need to do is go shoot a few of them and see for your self.
