Just picked up the Mathews DXT! Would never shoot anything, but a Mathews. I even pass on the free Bowtech bows that I can get.

Feel Free to send your free bowtechs to me. Just PM me and I'll give you my address. I'll even pay shipping :thumbsup:
It's a fact that 70 percent of the people who purchase heavier tackle do so with the categorical I just lost a huge snook! Einstein Hairdo.The other 30 percent have either Tarpon Fever or are sporting a hand cramped into a claw from a deepwater grouper.

Martin Firecat. Shoots good but a little slow. Looking at a Reezen or maybe a Monster.

Morrison (s)/ both recurves and longbows
Bob builds the finest custom bows on the market IMO, I've got several, and after trying most of the other big names I have decided to quit looking for the perfect bow and realize I already have it. :biggrin:

oh, and I have a Bowtech Independance for when I use training wheels. :wink:

Right..... the only people getting free Bowtechs are the people shooting for bowtech.... and if you are shooting a Mathews.... then you definately ain't shooting for Bowtech! There are a very select few archery shops that pamper the hell out of their shop shooters, but I don't know any shop shooters getting free bows.... and our shop sells all the major labels.

I have shot and owned a little of everything from High Country to Darton, to Oneida to PSE. One of the first questions on this thread (three years ago to boot) was who has owned a Hoyt and a Mathews and which do you prefer... I have... and at the same time! It was about 2006 in fact... I owned a Hoyt Ultratec (which I sold to my best friend and still semi-regret), and a Mathews LX, which is also now gone.

As to which I prefer. Hoyts. And honestly it is for little reason other than their grips. I hate the grips that come on Mathews bows. Our shop sells more Mathews bows than any other brand.... probably 5:1 and if you count Mission probably 10:1. We have been selling a lot of Bowtech Admirals as well... they are a nice bow. I think 2009 is going to be a tide changer (we'll see what the Monster XLR8 is like), but I do not like the Reezen one bit. I think that Admiral is the quietest and probably most shock free bow I've ever shot, but those short limbs on the new center pivot give it a very harsh draw.

So, to answer the ultimate question of the thread..... I shoot a Hoyt Alpha Max 32 as a hunting rig. And a Hoyt Pro Elite as a target bow.

There is a bow for everyone. Frankly they are all pretty dang good these days. It just depends on what you like. I frankly could care less about speed. I want a smooth draw, long valley, solid wall, high let off, quiet and shock free bow. I want it well built, and I want it accurate... more accuracte than I am. And for me Hoyt does it. Another super super smooth bow for '09... Ross Carnivore.
Tell your wife you love her, wrestle in the yard with your kids, shake your best friend's hand, let your dog sleep on the bed, and thank God for all the blessings in your life.
