Then you should have tried the Equilizer. You must like big things in your hands.

Very smooth and little hand shock. I thought it was a very smooth drawing bow.
I just happened to be looking at it out of curiosity. It's a little strange since the cam and idler have such a large diameter. It had a rest and sight on it and the guy in the shop asked if I wanted to give it a try. I felt very comfortable with it. I shot it about 10-12 times with Easton Fatboys and a TRU Ball Pro Diamond release. That was the first time I shot Fatboys too. The results at the target end were mixed, probably due to the fact that the thing was set up for a 'generic' person and there was no peep on it. I liked it a lot though. The Bowtech/Diamond grips are WAY better than they used to be too. It's 'Birth Certificate' said it was 71# and a 29" draw.

They do have A great grip. One of the that I believe is that the grip is te most important part of the bow because it never leaves your hand. Good luck on your decision.

Bowman,
You are right about my choice of bows but I think that Mathews makes A great bow. I like thew grip and solid wall on the bowtech. But if there was no bowtech I would definately shoot Mathews.

If i was not buying a prestige and needed hunting bow, I would buy a GM tec hunter extreme.....

so I guess if I wasnt buying mathews I would buy bowtech also.....

I figured out a brass nocking point weighs in at 5 grains and a loop it roughly 9 grains....anyone know what those rubber cussion buttons weigh???.....I may just get a rope head for the true ball and forget the loop......

I ordered a 27.5 as the boss is always telling me I look like my draw is too short.....
those rubber cussions move every shot. u would have to serve them in. i had one on my diamond and went to a loop. and i just weighed a brass nock and 3 inches of loop material. the brass nock weighed more. i wood go with the loop
