    I went tonight and shot my new Mathews XT for the first time:rockon: . WOW! I cannot wait until it is all set up and in my hands again. He said I should be able to start shooting it saturday. But he has to order a new cam for my DL. So he will just put a string loop on for now, until the cam comes in. I cannot believe the difference, the XT makes my Alpine feel like a rough ride. I feel like a little kid at Christmas time :whoo:
    I am posting this in the Smack Down section cuz when I get my XT...let the games begin :peace: . The real shooten starts and you will be the ones baking cobbler and cookies for me! :laugh:

    I agree that the bow does not make a difference to an extent.....but there are some bows that do shoot better than others for me:noidea:

    I might have to agree with Bowman on this one, considering my situation. I think the alpine is too short A2A, too light for me, the stablizer was too short, the draw length was 1/2 inch too long, and the grip hurts my hand when I shoot too much. Oh, and let's not forget the cable issues :mad: . And even with all this, I still shoot OK. :biggrin1: I have a feeling the XT is going to shoot a lot better for me, since it will actually fit ME :peace:

    Yes but, if you find a bow that fits you better then you will shoot better.

    Which came first...

    The Chicken or the egg...

    Sure if you have a bow that fits you, of course you will shoot better but because your form/technique will be far more suitable for shooting correctly. Improperly fit bows lead to slacky technique/form which leads to bad shots. 95% of archery is form/technique. Which encompasses making sure that your bow is fit to you which helps promote an environment that assures your form/technique are on point. It all comes down to one word... Mechanics!! Understanding the mechanics makes it easy to apply to any bow that is fit to you. This is why its possible to shoot accurately even if cables are in the way. You should be able to shoot accurately even if the bow is not the top of the line bow.

    SO THERE!!!
