    Am going to start bow hunting again after many years. I have narrowed things down to Mathews Switchback XT,Drenalin LD,Limbsaver Deadzone and Diamond Marquis. Help, comments, and suggestions would be appreciated.

    Thanks to all

    Have you shot all of those and which one felt best to you?

    Have shot all but the Mathews LD (cannot find one to shoot) and the Diamond (they are setting one up this week). They all feel about the same.
    Thanks: :frusty

    See how you like the Diamond. Mathews bows are good bows, Limbsaver is new to the bow game, have no experience with them, but are well known for their accessories.

    If they all seem the same, and you like them all, I would suggest the least expensive, or the best warranty. Ask the seller which manufacturers nit-pic their warranty. Some bows have inherrant problems, like the new built in limb bolt dampeners on certain models. Look for the shock absorbing material between the riser and the limb, (problems, I'm told). Designs that have been around for several years with few changes are usually a safe bet for being very shootable and reliable. I hope you you stick around and share your experiences with us. We can learn alot from eachother. :welcome:
