    Default Hoyt vector turbo

    Well If I had to dabble with the darkside this would have to be this bow!!!At 35"ATA and a respectable 340fps it just might lure me over to the darkside of Archery??????Anyone have any coments on this bow as hoyt are all chinese to me!!!!!

    I shot a Vector Turbo a couple weeks ago while to me the draw was a bit stiff throught the cycle but still smooth. As a side I chronographed it against the Anarchy both bows 29/70 with my 411 grain arrow the Anarchy hit 285 fps the VT 318 loop and peep. Needless to say I am quite disappointed in Bear

    You have to understand a 340 fps Hoyt rated bow is as fast or faster then anything else on the market boasting 355+

    In my dealing with any mathews, (not bashing) them at all but if they say their bow iwill do 340 the most of the ones i have dealt with will fall about 5 to 8 fps short of their ibo speed and ive heard of some that fall even shorter. but hoyt will do the direct opposite. if they say their bow will do 340fps then you can bet it will do that plus 5 to 8 fps over its ibo speed rating. good luck in deciding on it.

    Talking Here's what I think !

    Westy , please don't get caught up in this new bow hip stuff even over bows being fast , as the really best shooters shoot just one bow , unlike myself who own 2 bowfishing bows , 3 hunting bows , one spot bow , one speed bow for 3D and of course a bow for the grandkids ( A Mathews Mission Menace , that can be fitted to yours trully ) !

    I shoot all my deer at 25 or less yards , mostly point blank from a tree stand shooting down and my fish even closer !

    Good old mister Hoyt!!!!West-T who is loved and admired by many here went yesterday to shoot a Nice New Shinny Hoyt Vortex turbo!!!1Well thats what i thought anyways,Rang both the hoyt Dealers around Brisbane and you guessed it no one had one to shoot!!!!!This bow retails for $1250.00 dollers here thats about $ 1350They said it would take 6-8 weeks before there were anymore in stock!!!!Would buy one from the but never having shot one in my draw length I,m not going to risk it!!!!!Fear not I was saved by my Best Mate Matt Mc pherson who had shipped a heap of Mathews Bows to Eagle Archery Here!!!!!With 2 Magnum Z7's and a soon to be Ex -ez7 going today,a dude is driving just down the road 2 Hours to pick it up!!Where was I????I've decided to buy a Heli-m in Tactical !!!They want $1385.00 here can you belive it????So being the good Christian that I am i bought one in the and have shipped it to Carpshooters House,I hope he doesn't hink the Mormans have left it there for himHe being a good Christian will surely send it on for me!!!!don't put the Dope in with the bow as the sniffer dogs can smell it a mile away!!!!!I nearly went to the darkside of Archery but the Good Lord has saved me from this evil path!!!
    Now if he can only stop me from Drinking that will be the ticket

    There dollar isn't the same as ours is......but it's a price increase also because of being imported I would guess.

    That being said he needs to find a new dealer.....I know my buddy Marcus sells them for a $1049,
