    All the Bows you listed are great bows. Ya even left out Bowtech but that's ok. LOL. But the main thing is for YOU to go shoot these bows & let yourself deside what you want in a Bow. There are a lot of fine bows out there now. It all comes back to you the shooter. I shoot a 2007 Bowtech Allegiance cause I went out and shot alot of Bows and when I shot the Allegiance I was sold!! It had the smoothness on the draw, the generous Valley, the forgiving brace Height and the Speed!! Go shoot the ones that you feel strongly about and let yourself be the judge. Happy shootin. Remember this........ The best bow out there is the one yer shootin'. Don't worry what others are shootin' ... shoot what makes you happy. :cool2:

    I would have to agree with Curt, you need to shoot each bow and find one your comfortable with. Just check your local archery shops and ask to shoot them. You forgot Hoyt though. I'd stay a way from the Blowtech,:big_smile:. Just kidding, friend of shoots bowtechs, his alligance blew up on him 5th pull. Had a bad cam, anyway now I call them Blowtechs.

    I am a huge hoyt fan myself, but since it's not on your list, I would probably go with the diamond. It is made by bowtech i believe, and they make a helluva bow!

    I agree with a previous poster who said to shoot all of the ones you're interested in and buy the one YOU like the best.
    That being said, don't forget to check out the Ross bows. I love mine!

    tried a traditional bow? Kinda like a bow without the training wheels. Puts you on a different skill level. I am no expert, but check with TONTO he makes them. :004:

    That is sound advice. A bow is a very personal weapon that should be like an extention of the shooters arm. There are a lot of good bows on the market, and any one of them will do the job. It's more a matter of finding one that fits you, your life style, and your hunting style.

    Good luck with what ever bow you decide to buy. I have never shot any of those but I do know that all of them are great companies. I am sure you will enjoy shooting any of them. Oh, yeah! Just make sure to get the right draw length and draw weight. Get the bow that fits you and your shooting specs. You wouldn't believe how much better you will shoot with the right fitting bow. GOOD LUCK!!
