    They are a Hoyt company so I don't think they are going anywhere...Good bows...haven't shot one in a few years...

    Reflex is made by Hoyt so i don't think you would have to worry about them going away anytime soon.

    I really like the Rampage. it's the one with the regular riser. I'm not crazy about the TEC risers. Not that there's anything wrong with them, just not my cup of tea. Good bows and a great company.

    Shot most models of the new lineup. Great performers for the money.

    I bought a reflex 2 years ago and it shoots great, I just graduated to a trykon. For the money you can't beat the reflex line of bows. I am considering selling mine but, it would be nice to keep a backup just in case. 11 deer with the reflex, real solid shooter, 275 fps w/370 grain arrow, 29" draw@70 lbs. (reflex excursion)

    I think the biggest difference would be between Mission and Mathews. The Mats have much more parallel limbs and a lot more vibration damping.

    The mid-range Diamonds have less machining than the Bowtechs. They also don't have rear stabilizer bushings and the grips are rubber instead of wood.

    The closest seem to be the Reflex and Hoyt. The main difference is in the limb pockets, and I think most of the Reflex risers are cast magnesium instead of aluminum. I said earlier in this thread that I didn't like the TEC style risers, but since then I looked over the Reflex line again at the local Bass Pro. I've become a big fan of the Reflex Growler. It's the cheapest they offer this year, I believe, and I like it alot. It felt very good in my hand.

    The Diamonds have a bigger difference with Bowtech aside from machining the riser out and wood vs. 'rubber' grips... Diamonds do not have a cam and a half "binary-cam" setup. And, at least, the 2007 Diamonds mostly have wood grips.

    And, the Diamond rubber grips were terrible...

    The Black Ice is really nice...

    they are a excellent company. The Ridgeline to the Rampage and the Growler are sweet bows. And there FX-1/2 cams are smooth. You'll like them..
