LOL. Get ready for a lot of responses! LOL!

My favorites:

Hoyt:
1. Vectrix
2. Katera XL
3. Katera XT

Bowtech:
1. Guardian
2. General

Diamond:
1. Black Ice

Matthews:
1. Drenalin
2. Switchback

If you can afford those, then you'll be fine. Go shoot them each, and see which one feels the best for you. If you are looking for a heavy bow, look into the Hoyts...if you want a light bow, look at the Black Ice or the Drenalin. The Bowtechs are just cool, so check those out too! hehe. Good luck!

By your name it sounds as if you might be youthful or vertically challenged. If so that would change the type of bow to be recommended. Let us know and there will be more "suggestions" than you can think. Best bet is to go to the local Pro shopS (Emphasis on the plural) and see what they have and test fire as many as you can. Most bows made now days are good and the guys at the shops will explain each and what the differences in prices are for. After shooting a few let the bow pick you out. You'll know which feels the best to you. Good Luck and welcome to the site.

Since you are already a Hoyt guy, I'd recommend staying with them. The extra weight of the HOYTs truly makes them an easier bow to aim. You use your big muscles to control the bow rather than small muscles like your wrists. This will help you be more stable and shoot more accurately. Check out the following...

ACCURACY:
08' Vectrix Plus
Katera XL
Seven 37

SPEED:
Katera XT

Between these 4, I reassure you that you will find one that fits you perfectly. Try the Z3 cam, but don't get discouraged if you don't like the feel of it...the Cam 1/2 system is a great system also, and feels a little better in my opinion. Good Luck!

I recently got on the Bowtech bandwagon.....Guardian and General are two of the best bows i have ever shot and I would buy either of them depending on the deal i was getting but the Tribute is really nice too.

to the forum glad to have you with us.

If you already have a bow to hunt with I would wait until Jan. After all the new bows come out then go shoot them all and let the bow pick me. You will know which one is for you. For me it was the Mathews SB XT.

My list of bows by brand are:

Hoyt--Vectrix
Bowtech--Tribute
PSE--Diablo
Mathews--SB XT
Bear--Truth


Just a few I would take a good look at. Good luck and have fun.
