Been hunting deer all my life and never really gotten into bowhunting, but last year I used my buddies several times and got into it! Couldnt decide what I wanted so i shot them all.... parkers, diamond, limbsaver, mathews .... all of them!


I chose the DXT...and I couldnt be happier


70lb. DW
28" DL

and that new camo they have is awesome and i love the name of it

"LOST" camo that just says it all!

Congratulations on your purchase. I don't know anything about compounds and I just started the "deal or no deal" thread. I don't know a DXT from a BMX but if you like it that's awesome. I shoot weekly now and have a keen interest in poking a turkey with a broadhead. Best of luck and don't shoot your eye out.

Not familiar with the DXT but good to hear you like it.

You shot the Limbsaver Bow you say. How was that? We are waiting on it to get to my Bow Shop. It looks cool but huge and heavy from the looks of it. Was it as fast as they say or is it typical IBO BS?

Post a link or pic of your bow if you want. I am interested in seeing it.

jrock.... the limbsaver is cool looking and the limbs are really parallel but you are right about the weight! It is heavy!!!!

It shot good ... i felt that it was harder to draw than the mathews but a buddy of mine felt it was easier.... but both of us agreed that it did have a little more SHOCK after the release! It wasnt as forgiving as the DXT


Very nice bow though!

My girlfriend bought me the new DXT for Christmas. This bow is sick. I shot my martin for 13 years. I couldn't have been happier with that martin. It was a good bow but it was past due. It was literally falling apart. It is odd to compare the two and see the advances in Technology. Good Luck with it i haven't killed a deer with my new bow yet but Sept. 15 is coming quick
