Default My choise

I have shot alot of different bows while looking for a new bow this year. At tax time I had about $1200 to spend and the FRED BEAR line up was the choise for me.

If money was not an issue? Every year I'd buy one of every new model, keep my favorites, and give away the cast off's to thoes less fortunate on this web sight. Pray for a wind fall, fellow archers!

I personally am a hoyt guy. But with the choices you have listed I would go with a Mathews for hunting. I shot the new drenalin xt and was pretty impressed with the bow, especially for one that looks like a toy

Elite does not make a bad bow. Honestly, i'd want to shoot one of them liberty bows and be shunned by all right-minded archers.

Hoyt please, although the PSE X-Force is getting some publicity and I am a bit curious.

The one that fits your body the best, and the one that feels the best to you.

Elite XLR is my next bow...Alot of shooters are headed their way...I drew back a gt 500 and it was rock solid,the XLR should have a smoother draw,not that the gt 500 was bad,just a different style...If you are in the market,I would look at their bow line-up...I like the cable design attached to the cams instead of the limbs...

Being I just did this, I chose the Mathews Apex 7. But, I think you can't go wrong (for target) with the A7, the Apex, or a Hoyt ProElite. I know for a fact that I'm jumping on a ProElite next bow I get. Some 3000 limbs...sweet bow. But, I think the A7 is going to be just as good for what I'm looking for with my skill level. I've never pulled a smoother bow than the A7.

Any of the above that felt good in my hand and that shot well for me.
I own 2 Bowtechs and a Mathews. I have recently shot a PSE, Martin and an Elite that were all very nice.
Everyone seems to have been uping the anty in the last 3-4 years.
The Bear Truth 2 is pretty dang nice, even though the dual STS knock-off looks weird to me.

Go with what feels good to you and you're the most comfortable with.

Ron
