Default DXT or Monster???

Guys, I need your input. I am new to the 3D side. I have a DXT set up for hunting and love the bow. I also have a Monster in which I am trying to decide what would be the better set up for 3D and hunting or both...

Should I set up the DXT for 3D shoots, and hunt with the Monster??
or set up the Monster to shoot 3D and hunt??

Both bow are 29/70 (DXT is WT 67, and Monster is currently at 61..

Confused...

Shoot the monster. I shot with several who won lots of money in senior pro with the monster bow last year. Didnt see anyone shoot a DXT and I have actually owned a DXT bow. Wouldnt even consider a DXT for over accuracy.

Monster the bow for you want. Surprisngly accurate from the times I shot one.

I am with DB, I just bought 2 new 7.0 monsters after shooting them and released all of my hoyts. I am very happy with the Monster and my x count on a Vegas round was higher with my Monster than with my ProElite. Figure that one out. Good Luck.
