If you can, get them both set up for you and shoot them side by side. See which one you like best and go from there. Only you can make that decision. If you haven't already try as many bows as you can in this fasion. let the bow decide for you.

They are both great bows, you can't loose either way.
Only one way to get there, it's in the middle of no where, you gotta get a little mud on the tires.

Correction! Used to have to get a litlle mud on the tires!

the mathews is more expensive. but if money is no big deal im leaning towards the matthews. that dxt is sweet. i love those small compact bows.
1.smaller
2.faster
3.light
4.its a matthews so you know its quiet and durable
surely they cant get smaller :huh:

my buddy has a diamond and likes it, but he's only had it for a year and is looking to sell it. he shot a elite and bowtech and has decided to switch.

I just shot the DXT yesterday...It was very nice! Smooth, light weight, quiet, very consistant. If you haven't yet purchased one, I would strongly suggest that you shoot one. I know it turned my head when I shot it.

I work for a retailer and can tell you that just like a gun if it dosen't fit and feel right that you prolly won't ever shoot it right. I have shot a SQ2 for the past 6 years and love it to death but I do believe I will be tryin out a Blck Ice over the summer to see about this speed and parallel limb design. I got to shoot the Marquis the other day and all I can say is "Dam!!!!!"
