Default Help!

I shoot a Mathiews DXT that I really like. The problem is it does'nt really like me. I entered a local 3D shoot this past weekend and managed to win the thing. I really had forgotten how fun this activity can be and hope to get my kids involved. I have owned three Mathiews bows, loved them all, but have never had that nock busting accuracy that I have experienced with other bows. I am considering making a jump to another bow company to maximize my enjoyment and compeditiveness in the 3D game. I haven't ventured out of Solocam world in 15 years though and am a bit out of touch. Anyone out there have suggestions on a dual purpose nock buster?

Talking Here's what I think !

First off , to this site !

If you win so much , call Mathews and maybe they'll send you some thankyou cash , as then maybe you'll love shooting their bows , AS THEY ARE THE MANUFACTURER OF MOST WINNING BOWS THESE DAYS !

I shoot mostly Hoyts , as the deer don't care what I shoot as they just don't care to get shot at all !

I would say go and look at some new PSE's. They are smooth shooting and accurate.

to 3d shoots Ed.

Don't mind those two bickering fools, they argue over the sun rising and setting.

Anyway, sounds like that mathews might just agree with you if your name is on top at the end of the day. But if your looking for something new I would find a dealer that sold alot of different brand bows and just start shooting. You could narrow your search down by looking at the specs. of the bow your shooting now and go with something simular as far as ATA and brace, then try something longer and something shorter ect.... Finding the right bow is half the fun.

We are trying to get buddy Westy to move his frig further away from the computer , so he'll at least have to get up for his next adult beverage and maybe sober up alittle !

Matt and me are best buddies !

Now you know and you are !
