    Default Mathews DXT vs. Bowtech Admiral

    I am looking at getting a new bow for hunting, most of my hunting will be out of a tree stand.
    I have narrowed it down to a Mathews DXT or a Bowtech Admiral. I have shot both bows and like different things about each bow. The Mathews seems to fit a little better but than I have been shooting a Mathews for 10 years so it should seem to fit better.
    Would like some of your opinions out there, pros and cons on both bows, thanks.

    Both seem like very good bows. I think they would both make great hunting bows. So you will have to decide which one feels better to you. I had the same problem in '06 with the SB XT and Tribute. I went with the XT but I am very sure the Tribute would have done a great job also. Good Luck

    I hate to say it guys/gals, but he didn't ask for other bows...he asked about going between these two.

    Between those two, I would go with the admiral. There is only one real major difference between the two of them. Both are going to shoot great, both are very accurate, both can have little vibration if you put the right stabilizer on...but the major difference to me was the weight. Although the admiral isn't a lot heavier than the DXT, the DXT crosses the line of being TOO light. When you get to full draw and you are aiming...take your eyes off the target for a second and look at your bowhand...every second the bow will be moving, because it just weighs so little.

    Now, grab the admiral, and hold it...because of the added weight, the bow is much more stable, and doesn't react to every little pump of blood flowing through your veins. You can't go wrong with either bow...but I bet you that you'll be more accurate with the admiral due to it being a little heavier.

    OR, if you want, you could get the DXT, and just add the heaviest 6"-8" stabilizer you can...that way, you'll technically turn the weight of the DXT into the weight of the admiral with a moderately weighted stabilizer.

    If you do that, you can't go wrong with either. So, to sum it up...

    1) Bowtech Admiral with a 8-10oz stabilizer
    or
    2) Mathews DXT with a 16-18oz stabilizer, with most of the weight at the base of the stabilizer.

    That's just my $.02, take it or leave it, but I have shot both bows with 100's of shots, and that is my recommendation.

    Good luck, and don't sweat it too much...with those two bows, you can't go wrong. Have fun, and shoot straight!

    Thumbs up DXT or Admiral ???

    I was in your position in 08 between a Mathews Drenalin and a Bowtech Allegience. I chose the Mathews and Im happy with it. The bowtech felt just as good and everything so I just chose one! Good Luck

    I agree if you are looking for a single Cam the Iceman has the latest in technology when it comes to single cams.
