    shot the Mathews and you'll not be having that BT complex long! HA HA HA

    The silky smoothness of the Mathews will win you over!

    Then I can say :welcome: to the family!

    :peace:

    Gonna have to disagree with the Mathews fanboys...I have shot em all and wouldn't trade my bowtech for one. The drenalin is a good bow, but I like my Allegiance much better. Now if you are deciding between an Airborne and a Mathews, I would buy an Elite :biggrin1: I just really hate the Airbornes draw cycle a lot!

    The Tomkat is not top end bow. Both of my sons bought a Tomkat as a first bow and they love them. Compare to a $750 Airborne? No. No limb bolt inserts, no back accessory hole, no velvet camo job, no wood grip. But, on the things that really matter, yes it does compare. Smooth? yep. Reliable? yep. Same string and cables? yep. Same cams as older BT's? yep. Adjustable? yep. Quiet? yep. Light? yep. Accurate? yep. Cost effective? yep. Really hard to go wrong with a tomkat. I like to put it this way. Does having leather seats in your truck make it run or pull better?

    Tomkat is a good bow. There are faster bows out there, but I can't say better because that is in the eyes and mind the one holding the bow.

    OOH, have you shot an elite? They look pretty fancy and make some bows with good looking specs. I personally don't like mathews bows, they are nice and all, but I feel so much like I'm spending 300$ more for the name when an alpine is pretty near equivalent. Bowtech also seems to be leading the way in inovation, mathews is sitting on its good names and history of perfect accuracy.

    Tomkat is the lower end bow for BT...kinda apples to oranges...depends on how much you want to spend. Your question should be more like the "ally" or "switch"...and "mission" or "tomkat"...:cool:
