    How much is a new drenalin or DXT running in your area?

    Not sure whether I want a DXT or Drenalin.

    I don't have a shop nearby and don't want to get swindled when I get there.

    Thanks
    Matt

    PS Happy Easter

    Funny how different people feel different things in a bow. I have shot both side by side and I thought the draw cycle on the LD was smoother. The DXT was definitely very dead in the hands on the shot. I also really didn't like the shorter ATA of the DXT.

    Shoot them both, pick the one that feels right to you. No way you can go wrong with either bow.

    As for price, at the shop I shoot for, the LD is $799 in camo, and the DXT is $749.

    I ate too much to read straight!!!!! :peace: You got me Easter Bunyyman!!!! I'm not sure I would have upgraded from my Drenalin if the DXT was my only choice. I probably would have gotten a Prestige as my shooter bow!:doh:

    As for the price of a Drenalin. Last year they were $729 at my shop. Not sure if there wasa price change this year.

    Hey my DLD is my hunting bow.......that DXT is too small for me, even for a hunting bow.......:noidea:

    and i use to shoot a SQ2 .........

    the DXT is a great bow in its own right, but just not for me......:noidea:

    MY only real issue, with it is NO REAR STAB hole and I dont like front mount, STS's....:biggrin1:

    I will first tell you that I am not a Mathews guy, but I have shot both the bows you are talking about and I would go with the Drenalin every time. I didn't care for the DXT....thought the draw cycle was worse and just didn't hold as well.
