    Have you shot both?

    Pick the one that feels best to you. Forget what everyone else teels you to buy. It is a personal preference type of thing. Whichever bow feels best in your hand when you are shooting it. Thats the one to buy in my opinion.
    That course was so easy I even missed a target !!

    Yes, what he said. go to multiple shops, if possible, and shoot as many bows as you can and choose the best feeling one (within your budget).

    Good luck !

    You have to get what ever fits you the best. But being a Ross shooter myself (I also have a Mathews) I think you will find that they are a top of the line bow priced very reasonably. I have met several of the folks down at Ross and shot with a couple and you won't find a more down to earth group of folks.

    That being said, get out and shoot em and don't go for just the manufacture. Check out the Bowtech and Hoyts also. You will shoot better if your equipment feels confortable to you.

    I have never shot that ross but I have the drenalin. I love it...smooth, quiet and fast. I am not saying that the ross is not good . I can only speak of my happiness with my drenalin.

    There are sooo many good shooting bows out there today it's almost hard to go wrong.
    Find a shop that will let you shoot as long as you want and just start shooting them, sooon one of them will start talking to you and whispering in your ear.

    I would probably side with the drenalin. But, I doubt you would be disappointed with either.
