    Yep; OMF is correct, whichever one you think it is. There are many fine choices so get whatever works best for you.

    Bows are just like cars, they don't make a one fits all. No one makes the smoothest, most quiet, fastest, best feeling, easy to work on, best grip, for the money bow that everyone loves.

    Ok let me rephrase that, what has been the best bow for you? I have been shooting for 7 years and I understand that the best bow is decided by the shooter. But what about the mechanics, and info about that, how do they rank? Hoyt, Matthews, Bowtech? Let me know what yall think

    The one that has what your looking for,rather it be speed or a softer draw with more brace or maybe even both with Bows today...Something I like to look for is Ball Bearings on both Axles...Plastic bushings wear and you end up with CAM LEAN...BB's last longer and dont need lubricant if they are sealed...That has been a problem for me in the past,a 4 dollar bushing keeping me from shooting with my friends on our favorite 3-D shoot...

    I dont think its "what is the best bow on the market",its "whats the best bow for me"...

    mathews bows do tend to last with very little maintainance required. they are simple in design(1 cam) and simple=gold for durability. Best made bow is probably a matt-they also have amazing efficiency.

    All that said, I've never even thought of buying one. Too overpriced and under featured

    there really is no best bow on the market....its what the shooter feels best with...for me i could care less about speed and i dont care for short axle to axle bows.

    shoot what feels best and thats the best bow on the market.so in thay case Hoyt is # 1 everyone else follows and mathews is way behind

    As far as best built bow, I would have to say Hoyt. Every hoyt that I have messed with in the last few years has been put together very tight and they certainly are as durable as it gets.
    As far as consistent shooting, Mathews shoots as consistant as any that I have found. I usually see a few more flaws in their design though, but man do they shoot well.
    Bowtech to me is somewhere in between. They seem to shoot really well and are built quite well too (other than the limb issues).
    I own all of them and like 'em all.

    As far as the best bow, thats an impossible question to answer. You have to answer that yourself.

    If you are looking for a tough bow that is accurate and somewhat quiet then go with hoyt, if you want speed, with very little sound and a really smooth draw go with the mathews dxt, or drenalin. If you want a really fast bow with a very easy draw cycle and very quiet go with one of the four pse x force bows. Anyway I think it comes down to personal preference, I have the mathews drenalin set at 65# and 30 ince draw shooting aprox 311 fps.
