Generally speaking, lighter weight than you normally shoot, longer axle-to-axle and high brace height.

We need more info from you though to give you some better advice.
The type of competition do you plan to shoot?
What's your draw length?
How much weight do you normally shoot?

Along with what Chris said look for something that has either a deflex riser or little reflex. These tend to be more forgiving.

A couple bows that come to mind are the Martin ShadowCat and RazorX, both in the Elite version. For pure accuracy I'd favor the RazorX.

Hello, ill second the hoyt ultatec and hoyt ultra elite, these are 2 verry popular bows here, however, Depending on your experiance, you can be competitve with a shorter bow, I shoot alot of 3d, I shoot a hoyt trykon, its fairly short, and i find i score just as good with it as any of the longer bows ive used, I think with all the newer bows, they all prety much shoot well, Most of them shoot better then the shooters anyways. I tend to like the balance of the shorter bows better, the way they feel, you might be differnt, you need to find what fits you and one you like to shoot, just because i love the trykon, dosent mean you will!! Take care and good luck!!!

You might want to look at Richwood CSS Archery. They are custom built to your specs. They are very accurate. I shoot 299 to 300 w/ 48-51 X on five spot on the average w/ them. And 290's to low 300's on 30 target 3-D.

Default Switchback XT

Well everyone has their own opinions on a bow for competition. So just let me chime in with Mathews Switchback XT. I just ordered one and they are very nice shooters.

How about the Mathews Apex 7 or Switchback XT, What world record was set w/original Switchback? It has slipped my mind.

Default Darton's are the best in Quality and Service

I've been shooting Competition since the late 1970's, and I've shot alot of name brand bow's. They all were and still are great bows, and then I picked up a 2000 Darton Maverick and got hooked. Darton's are a fast, forgiving, easy to tune, and most importantly they stay in tune, no nock travel. The best part is the customer service, Darton Archery stands behind their Bows. I currently own 2-Darton Mavericks, and a Darton Cyclone 3D, and love to shoot everyone of them. However, you have to make your own choice, but I know that you can't go wrong with a Darton.

Good luck and happy shooting

Default Be Supportive

Sharpshooter60
I couldn't agree more, but what works for your neighbor may also work for You. Whatever the case! we should be supportive of one another, so that the Sport of Archery may continue to grow. The Bow is just an extersion of the person who shoots it, and we must support the Shooter first.
