Well, I have been in the market for a new bow for awhile now but wanted to give both the big 2 (Mathews and Bowtech) a fair shake. It took me a while to locate a Bowtech dealer. Finally today I found one. After shooting the Guardian I have to say that I was not impressed at all. I did love that there was no hand shook and that it was quiet as a whisper. The draw cycle killed it for me. It seemed like the draw weight was hard all the way up to the wall, which made it feel very jumpy, and unstable. When I explained this to the tech he recommended shooting the Tribute with smooth mods. Much Much Much BETTER (for my liking anyways). So holt it right there, just when you thought this was a Bowtech bash!!!! I went to the Mathews dealer and shoot the Drenalin. It felt the same. Very jump and like it was so very close to lunging forward at any second. This tech says “well maybe you would like the Switchback XT”. I shot it and loved it. So now I am torn and could use some help. It is probably going to be either the Tribute or the Switchback XT. So no! this is not were I ask which is better because I know it is up to what I like, and what feels good to me….Bla Bla. I would like to know: 1. Is there such a thing as smooth mods for the Guardian? 2. I know that there are timing marks on the Tribute cams. Do you not have to worry about cam timing on the Switchbacks solo cam? 3. How often do you need to adjust the timing on the Tribute, or do they pretty much stay put? 4. What is the advantage of the bianary cams on the bowtechs. Thanks to everyone in advanced!
