    Trying to descide if the XT is better than the Drenalin. Some say it is some say the Drenalin is much better. I am looking for forgiveness, speed isn't everything to me. I am wanting a bow that I can shoot for a years, but also one I have convidence in as well.

    Yes I have shot both the Dreni and XT. I liked them both, just the XT was smoother to me. I have never owned a mathews and want to get the right bow for my first. The Mathews dealer hear only have 1 used XT, and I have to sell my old AR34 first. He said he can get a new one for 20 bucks less than a Dreni is. Dreni $699, Brand new XT $679, or the used one is $500 but looks new. What you think???

    so the XT was smoother and that was the only difference??

    does the XT fit you?

    if the only difference you noticed was it was smoother and its is $200, I dont need to tell you which one I would choose.....

    I loved the XT, the only thing I like more about the Dreni was it is lighter. This is a hard decision, should I just spend the 200 bucks for the latest and greates or save the money for asseccories? Need you opinion, what you think?

    Both are great but I went with the Drenalin, I counld not be more pleased. I don't believe you would regret the purchase. And I am not one to just buy because someone tells me too or because they have so many adds. I do alot off reading and asking questions.

    Drenalin uses the roller... not the cable guard. I have never used one on any of my other bows either but it had crossed my mind when I first saw one.

    I new there was application for that screw slot but to be perfectly honest I had not thought of that. Might be another thing I could try. Alought it is quiet the way it is it could still yet be quieter.

    you will not regret it...it adds hardly any weight, quiets the bow, Vibration and hand shock will be almost completly gone and you will not loose any speed.......

    I will tell you the same thing I told Bhhoosier when he was sceptical....IF you dont like it.......I will buy it from you.....

    this is the deal.....put it on the bow, shoot a few shots, you will be saying at this point.......it doesnt do much.....now take it back off and shoot a few shots......I will bet that it goes back on the bow and doesnt come back off......
