    This will definatly get some bashing if the post grows. Thats a tought question everyone has a big big diference. But i will tell you i shoot PSE, Hoyt and soon to be Evotek bows as soon as it gets in. But i will eventually probably shoot a mathews i dont stick with one company i like to try them all. I find a bow i like and i stick with it a while.

    I live 20 minutes from the mighty Mathews bow factory. No doubt about it they make a nice bow, but I shoot Bowtech and definately do not consider it second best....My wife recently got into archery. We went and got her set up with a Browning micro adrenalene. Also good bow for the money.

    :confused: Out of curiosity… If i went out and got the "Best Bow", will that make me the "Best Shooter" ? :D
     

  10. Why, yes it would. The only problem is I don't believe there is one company that makes the best bow hands down. Personal preference may jump in (Mathews, Hoyt, Bowtech, etc.), but it is all what shoots good for you. I'm guilty of listening to the hype (You got to have a Mathews if you want the best). My Switchback is a great bow, but when I shot the Hoyt Trykon and the Bowtech Tribute, I was like "Damn, these are great bows also". So to solve my problem, I decided to own a bow from each of these companies. Heck, I have the money right now, so why not. This way I won't be talking out of my third point of contact when I say this certain bow shoots this way, because I will know for a fact because I will own a bow from that company and I will know how it shoots and compares to the competition.

    Shooting a few arrows to test fire a bow and taking it home and shooting over two hundred arrows are two different things. The "My bow is the best" arguement is childish. Have you shot every bow from every single company? Once you have done this and come to a intelligent conclusion, then I for one will listen to you. Until then, it is all a personal preference thing.

    Take Care and God Bless!

    Yes welcome, and I agree about the nature of the question. Your bow is a highly personalized and customized piece of equipment. Also the best for what? Target, 3D, spots, field, hunting, fishing, etc? Just because you use one bow or one brand, that alone doesn't make it the best for all applications. What about traditional bows? English, recurve...?
    I own several different bows. Bear, PSE, Browning, Darton, Hoyt, Martin. Both compound and traditional. Best or Not, who can say OBJECTIVELY? I enjoy shooting them all. They have all been highly dependable and welcome additions to my personal "arsenal".

    in my opinion all bows are good, some are slightly better, but its not the bow that makes you shoot better its the shooter. If you suck at shooting and by the best bow you will still be a poor shot who is know broke!!!

    I'm a newbie here and I've only been shooting for three years. All of my opinion has already been voiced by others with far more experience than I have. But, here's an opinion from a newbie:

    I've done a lot of looking around. I like to research and explore things. Dang, there are a heck of a lot of really good and really interesting bows out there! But, I am drawn to good craftsmanship (engineering), good looks, good feel, good performance and price. The first three of those are very subjective. Good performance is almost a given in today's market and price just narrows the field.

    So, from what I can tell the best manufacturer is the one that makes the bow that fits you best, both in your hand and in your head. I know who my "best manufacturer" is and for me they nail the first four factors. They're pricey but you get what you pay for!
