    I'm not really asking what you shoot, but what you would shoot IF you could shoot anything you wanted....

    I have a Reflex and a Mathews, but the Mathews will get all the time in the field this year. The quality of the bow is unbeatable!

    The Reflex is made by Hoyt right? Which Matthews do you own?

    I shoot a Hoyt Trykon. I have it all outfitted with the Fuse vibration dampening accessories. It is one of the smoothest bows I have ever shot, and I've owned several. If I had my choice to shoot another brand, it would have to be a bowtech. They are pretty sweet bows too.:wink:

    Yes, Reflex is owned by Hoyt. I've got the Express model, which is about nine years old. Still faster than most bows on the market today. My Mathews is the Outback model, I've had it for three years, but never taken anything with it.

    I just bought a Pearson FPS2000... Now all I gotta do is get the accessories for it and find some deer.. Hopefully it will start cooling down soon..

    Bowtech for me, I have bought a new one the last 3 years in a row and will be selling my 07 to get an 08. They just get better and better, any body want a 07 Tribute at a insane price...PM me. I'll give the BOC discount:big_smile:

    I shoot a martin slayer 06 model and its the nicest shooting bow ive shot and ive shot em all!!! the best part about it is its faster than any bow that matthews,hoyt, and its half the price im a staff shooter for pine grove archery in michigan i got a special deal on my bow 350$ ou the door but to public the bow will run 450-500$ at most, in hunting setup 417 grain arrow with broad head at 63lbs im getting 319ft per second ive yet to see a faster bow under 65 lbs in hunting setup. when setup for 3-d shoots 328 f.p.s through a brand new chronograph its very shootable to its not just a speed bow. and martin actually stands behind there products i dropped a bow out of a stand at a 3d shoot broke the top limb in half told martin the truth and they next day aired me a set of limbs with NO CHARGE!!!!! my buddy tom had a matthews swith back explode on him at full draw he was out of a bow for 6 weeks wouldnt even ship him a loner bow for the season so i really dont see what the fuss is about the whole matthews bow is if i had to shoot anything other than my slayer id shoot a bow tech but ive heard terrible things about there new cam system lots of cam lean after 1000 shots and there not to good about warrenty work from what ive heard. if your rich matthews are smooth shooters but if you work for a buck git a martin slayer or a bengal

    Hey for all you swithback shooters i have a friend that modify those bows he calls it a "switchout" he takes matthews Outback cams and some other parts swaps to the bow +20 fps over stock and shoots like a absolute dream, im mean it not even comparable to the original verzion if you want a number to have it done send me a P/M

    I shot a compound for 30 years, the first one was a Bear Polar II that weighed about 10 pounds, then several more, Dartons, Hoyts and others. This year I switched to a Bear Montana long bow, 50 pounds, bare bow, shoot'n off the shelf . Tppk a while to get the hang of it, but now I love it.

    This year i actually got to see 2 well known bows, matthews and hoyt dry fired and the results afterwords. The hoyt held up didnt break any part at all and the matthews cam was destroyed. I guess it shows the true quality of the two bows.
