Both of my sons are getting into bow hunting this year. They each ordered a Bowtech Tomkat for their first bow, after talking to some friends that shoot competition and the pro shop owner (who sells Bowtech, Mathews, Hoyt, PSE, Browning and Darton). At 14 and 16 money was a big factor in their choice. I know that bows are getting like Ford and Chevy. Brand loyalty only goes so far. My question is, are the Tomkats good bows? (Take off the stickers, lables and names). I am sure that they will upgrade in the future, but for a first bow the price is hard to beat, add arrows and a release and your shooting.
