Im shooting an older Hoyt V-tec. Not the fastest thing out there but she still shoots great. I also shoot a custom made 50 lb recurve, gotta love the ol' stick and string!

No doubt Mathew is the best bow on the market. But before you get down with your set up you will spend 1K on your bow.
But the slience and smoothness of this bow is unreal. Their cams are sold to other bow manufacturers.


Lol....you couldn't pay me to shoot a Mathews.......They would not be in my top 10 for bow manufacturers, but I care about the bow performance, not the name on the limbs!

That Quinn is a nice bow. What do you shoot out of it? Carbons, aluminums, or woodies?

I shoot a High Country Safari Compound Bow, 60 Pounds at 29" draw , I know High Country Archery isnt very popular, but my bow isnt very new and shoots just as good as a lot of the bows that guys I shoot with use. It is smooth and fairly quite, and like I said, its not very new at all and I hear their new bows are tops and they shoot around 355 fps which is pretty decent, they just need to get their name out there more, so if anyone is looking for a good bow I'd check out High Country Archery. I also shoot Easton almuminom arrows, which I know a lot of people dont use these days but I do.

I was shooting a Hoyt XT 2000 set at 60lbs for last few years. Last season was also the first time I used the rage 3 blade. I decided to go back to 100 grain muzzy's due to having to replace the blades each time you shoot an animal. Last years I took a bear and 2 deer and had to replace the blades each time. After last season I bought the Mathews Z7 Xtreme, 70lbs set at a 24.5 inch draw. So far I have only gotten to target shoot with it but I really enjoy shooting the bow.

Woods Walker, I shoot carbon. Beaman MFX Classics 500's (small dia.). It also shoots Gold Tip Traditional 35/55 carbons I buy from Big Jim's Archery just as good.. They are blemished arrows...little finish blurr or something. He has them for about $42.00 doz. when he can get them. They don't last long in his shop.
