new bow

Rem721Rem721 Member Posts: 39 ✭✭
Shot my new to me bow last night. Mathews LX. Got it used for $400 complete with sight, rest, quiver. It was a 04 model used 1 season. Sold my older Hoyt Intruder for $200 with the works on it and also all the arrows. Trying carbons this year. Gold Tip Hunters. Impressed with it so far. 3 months to go.

    I don't even want to start the "which bow is better" fight...I am shooting a whole lot of different bows and trying to figure out which one is best for me. I broke my right elbow in march and tore the tendons real bad...since then I have been trying to get the arm strength back but it just isn't there...thinking a bow with greater let off will help. Plus these newer bows maintain speed even with lighter draw weights...the days of "macho" draw weight are over for me.

    Heard Horton is now making a compound bow. It it is as good as the crossbow it could be a dandy.

    Hey everybody! Long time no see!! How has everyone been?

    Has anyone shot the Matthews Switchback? I was just looking at one on the Matthews website. How does it compare to the Outback?

    Thanks guys (and gals)

    Got it today, arrived at like 2:30 pm, got everything on it, nocked it, and put a peep sight in ( which for a brand new string is mighty tough) shot it three times at 5 yards, then 3 times at ten yards...I was 2 inches low and an inch to the right at 5, and dead on at 10! [8D] WHOO HOO!

    Well all you guys got me thinkin'. I need a new one haha but i am 18, headin to school in the fall, and work at mc-e-dees-. I cannot spend 400+ on a bow like matthews or hoyt. I WOULD LOVE TO, just can't afford it lol. I looked at pse but it seems any bow company that is in my range 200-250 doesn't make any decent bows. Any input?
    Thanks,

    Go to your local shop and shoot as many bows as you can. Then pick the one that best fits you and your budget

    I would say the PSE. Light, and good power for the pull. I have had mine for several years now and it still works great as ever...even on the original bow string (Wax them often, replace them seldom). I would suggest a different rest however than the one that came with my bow....I think they have improved them a while ago....and you can always buy your own.

    I was iffy on the bear series for the price, scared it might break or be brittle. I have loved mine, its light, and if something were to happen to it you won't cry over it. Mine was like 300 brand new. Not bad...I would shoot some of their series see what you like, very forgiving.

    X2. Call Joe at PSE if you have questions about any model PSE. Good guy, great help.
