Default Bowtech over Hoyt and Mathews???

In three more days I will pick up my new Bowtech Guardian. Had a few Hoyts, but I noticed that things kept vibrating loose on all my Holts that I owned. The Mathews bows did much better overall than any of the Hoyts, but I find myself liking split limb bows over solid limb bows. What can I expect from my Bowtech Guardian in the long run (reliability and accuracy). What are some common issues that plague Bowtech bows (if any)?

Take Care and God Bless!

Not being able to get your hands on a new model BowTech soon enough is the worst thing that plagues new bow buyers. Next would be the robinhoods.

The Guard is sweet. It is by far the quietest bow I have ever heard, and is extremely well balanced. I'm new to Bowtechs, but so far so good. I would say that I feel that my Switchback was a more forgiving shooter, but the Guard is still very accurate. It's a bit stiffer in the draw compared to the Switch- from my perspective. I just got another Switchback (had to sell my other one last fall) and haven't shot it yet. I can't wait to shoot them side-by-side. Will post some results.
