I had one, and really liked it. Wish I would have kept it. I got 291 @ 61lbs, grained out. I only have a 27.5 inch draw. I will get another one sometime. I think it's an awesome hunting bow too, short and fast.

I have a black wrinkle finished Switchback and a Conquest 4 now. I never even shot the A7 I had,(traded it off )The prestige had a little more hand shock than my Switchback, but not much. It was way faster. I only traded it because I have comitment problems!

Is this the one Cody has??? If so "I LIKE".

A couple friends have them one of them I believe is selling his on E-Bay or already has he does'nt keep any bow very long always wants the newest thing but he has the money so I say go for it. The other friend loves his although I have not talked to him for a few months since before the Drenalin so he may have traded it off also. I shot both of them and yes they definately have more hand shock than my XT but then again all bows do. If you are looking for more speed at shorter DL then I'd say its the bow for you.

No, Cody has my A7, but, I did get the Prestige from Drew, who got the Prestige from Cody! I just like to have them all! I can't afford to keep very many at once though!

get an Old Glory... break the Mathews trend! Or an Allegiance... both are awesome machines and have the speed to sling some arrows.

Default Prestige

I put Apex 7 up for sale and bought a Prestige on AT from Brown Hornet. He is going to be shooting for Martin and he gets his for free, so the Mathews had to go. As far as i'm concerned thats his bad luck and my good, although I wish him the best this year. The Apex 7 was a 60-70 and too much bow for an old man like me to handle for a 3D bow. Had the limbs backed out of the pocket and was shooting it at 58 lbs. Still the fastest bow I've ever shot. Looking forward to getting the Prestige this week. It was a toss up between it and the Hoyt Vulcan. Loved the grip on the Apex so I went with the Mathews. Looking forward to a Good 3D season. Hoping to qualify for the Worlds at Anderson. Keep us posted on your bow fever and let us know what ya end up with

If you only knew how funny that is......that bow came from Willow Point! I traded the Prestige to BH for the A7 that Cody has now!

I can't imagine that an STS does much for forward jump on a bow. May stop string vibration, but I don't see how it helps the other....

I've never seen a non-parallel limb bow shoot without some sort of forward jump.

Even my Ovation does shooting lincoln logs at 55lbs...

The Prestige just does it a little more than the others I think.

As far as a jolt, I think it is between a Regular Switchback and a Drenalin. Better than a Drenalin, but not as smooth as a Switchback. This is with the Prestige being a 60lber, which is all I would want with the 65% letoff. I know some people talk about the Dren being smooth, but I didn't think so. JMHO.

I wouldn't take 3 Drens for 1 Prestige. I like the prestige for anything but indoors. I'm not steady enough to shoot a short brace height bow indoors.
