    Looking to get into my first target bow for my league that I'm in. I'm looking for it to be STRICTLY competition...no hunting with it at all. Which bow should I get??? Here is what I have it narrowed down to!

    ***All bows in 50-60#, at 55***

    1. Matthews Drenalin LD - Cherry Colored
    2. Bowtech Commander - Either Camo or Smoke Gray with RED modules
    3. Hoyt Pro Elite - Inferno Red with Black (EXPENSIVE...Can't really afford now, would have to buy this summer)

    Which do you recommend. I was reading on the Commander and the Binary Cam system, and it sounds pretty sweet. Very stable bow too. Let me know!

    Strictly target........And only between those 3?....... In that situation, I'd

    get the Pro Elite. Now if C4 was also in the mix my choice wouldn't be so

    easy. :peace:
     

  3. Don't forget the Elite Extreme XL 36" ata & 8" BH

    What a waste of a list. Strictly a target bow and you leave out one of the best of all time. Martin Scepter or S4 as it's known in serious target shooter jargon.

    I voted Drenalin LD. If I still shot Mathews bows, this is the bow I would 3D and spot with......:rockon:

    Most will give you an opinion based on the brand they are currently shooting the best advice iI can give is to try and shoot all the models you have listed and maybe some others than have been suggested. All these bows will have a different feel due to different grip and geomitrys. Go see your local pro shop and check out as many models as possible. By the way I shoot a Hoyt because it fits me best.

    Actually I shoot all Mathews and yet I voted Hoyt. This isn't the "BIG" place, not nearly as many koolaid drinkers here. :biggrin1:
