Default Re-New to Archery

Hello all.... haven't picked up a bow in 25 years. My bows are a Bear White tail 2 and a Bear Super Kodiak compound. So I figure to up grade my equipment. all the new bows look like childs bows,,,didn't realize how short they have gotten. Live in Central Florida and have been making the rounds of the archery shops. My wife had a Jennings Black Lightening, but found a bow she likes so we got her a Diamond Edge. She seems to shoot it well. I however haven't decided yet. I have narrowed it down to 4 bows....heres where I need some help any info you can give me on these bows will be appreciated.
Diamond Outlaw
Hoyt Rampage
Mission Venture
Hoyt Pro Hawk
Oh yea, also looked at a couple of Parker's ( Inferno and Wildfire)at Gander today.

All of them, including Parker, make some good stuff. You need to shoot them yourself and see if one "speaks" to you. One thing to keep in mind if you've been absent from archery for a while is how adjustable the DL is. Do they have a rotating module or would a change require buying a different cam? I bet you might want to be able to change DL until you're comfy with the bow.

All great bows.

I personally like Hoyts, but it's whatever really "fits" you.
