Talking Are the new bows that good ?

I get " Bowhunting " magazine and there was article about how bows are much better today , since the last ten years , the author used Hoyts as an example .

I really don't know so I'm asking , as my newest hunting bow is a 2007 Reflex Caribou , but am wonderring about those faster speed hunting and 3D bows .

I want to know , " are they that much better than bows than those that are ten years old " ?

Let me know if you have purchase a fast smooth good shooting hunting or 3D bow in the last few years .

The only difrence i can tell between my old antique bows and my new elite is the let off mainly ,the draw is a little smoother and gained speed.with the 80 percent let off it just about holds its self at full draw.Thats what sold me on a new bow.The deer i shoot dont seem to know the difrence between the new bow and my old one.

I think you have to wait at least 3-5 years to really see anything different between a companies flagship bows. Using Hoyt as an example, it's really hard to tell any real difference between their aluminum riser bows since the Alphamax. Same can pretty much be said for the Z7 through Heli-m (haven't tried the Creed to see yet).

IMO, many bow companies had past designs that they are still trying to match with current bows (Hoyt Alphamax, Mathews Z7 (which finally matched the Switchback XT), Bowtech Destroyer, Elite Z28 or GT500, etc). Some have tried to do little tweaks to keep the popularity alive (some of which went the wrong way) and some have eventually had to try a fresh design to try and match the popularity of the older models.

Now if you talk target bows, that's a whole other story. There is even less change in that market. It seems like there is a set design people want for target bows and if a company tries to change it much it's hard to get acceptance. Examples of this are the fact that the 2013 Mathews Conquest 4 is nearly identical to the original 1996 Mathews Conquest but the Triumph which was actually a different design and was not accepted. Another example of the lack of change is Hoyt and their Spiral cam which has been around since at least 2000.

I shoot bows that are more like the long ATA target bows !

Wonderring if the parallel or past parallel bows are better than the older style ?

So do I and it seems the longer the bows get the less they change. Better is relative to the shooter so it depends what you think the features of a good bow are. I shoot a Triumph which is a long riser, parallel limb target bow and I like it. It's got a little edge on speed when compared to similar ATA/BH single cam bows but what I really like is the lack of vibration and how quiet it is.
