In my opinion is doesn't compare to the Mathews Switchback XT or Hoyt Trykon. Save your money until you can buy one or the other!! You will be much happier!!! At almost $600, you're not that far away!

I am not sure about the model of bow. JButler is probably right on waiting until you can get the mathews. don't know of the alpine quality so I can't really give you help on that but you would probably be happier with the mathews. You make your own decision, what drew you to the alpine, price, model, ATA, brace height, speed? when you get the new one let us know how you like it

After I wrote the first reply I checked your link and checked out the bow. I probably would not choose the avalanche because it only has 6.25" of brace height. It is gonna make it alot harder to be accurate and since you are new to archery I would say get something with at least 7". 3/4 of an inch might not sound like alot but believe me it makes a big difference

hi,bro then what about the alpine denali,the brace on it is 7inches,also not quite sure what ur talking about when you refure to the brace,also how hoes it effect the shooting.i chose the 2006 alpine avalanche match grade because it came with some great extras light sights,arrow rest,ext......where the matthews comes bare.i also dont want to go all out yet untill i make sure that bow hunting is what i really want to get in to.dont get me wrong i would love to one the switchback or the switchback xt.but they cost too much for me right now.

I'm not positive but isn't Alpine the manufacturer that pulled all their bows out of all the shops except Cabelas or Basspro or something? Thought they were close to going under. But that could be somone else? so take that for what its worth.

I would definately suggest looking around. There are some really good bows out there that are solid, Diamond, Reflex, PSE...

or look into a used bow. You can get a lot of bowtechs from last year (used) that are in the 500 - 550 range, same goes for Mathews. Why buy a brand new bow when you can get twice the bow from somone else for 1/2 the price.

If you've shot the Alpine and you think it is the best bow for you then buy it, but if you shot it and you feel even the slightest bit hestitant about it then why spend your hard earned money on a bow your going to be unhappy with?

to many parts just to make a riser in my opinion, seriously look at the classifieds section on here and Acherytalk, you will find a much better deal than you are looking at right now.....I have worked on a few Alpines and all I will say is the quality just isnt there......would hate for a new guy to get discouraged from a great sport buy a less than great bow.....

Hey Briz50, the brace hieght on a bow is the distance from the back of the grip to the bowstring. More is better that is what I think, the more brace height you have the more forgiving the bow is going to be. I used to shoot a Hoyt Supertec for 3D and You really have to be on top of your a game all the time to shoot good scores with a bow like that. I have a friend at the club who has 2 supertecs 1 for hunting and 1 for 3D and field, He shoots 300 59X, and indoor 3D around 330-335 for scores, he has been shooting them so long that he is just comfortable with it. When I got mine it took alittle bit to get confidence in it but it came. All I would like to tell you is get something that you can use for a while and be happy with, like bowman said I would hate to see you give up on a great sport because of not so great Equipment, I am pretty sure none of this came out right so I hope you don't get offended
