I have owned a mission for 4 seasons now and can't say that I regret buying it at all. Just a matthews without anything fancy on it. Shoots great and has killed several animals for me.

The Mission Menace is a good Youth/Woman's Bow that is made by Matthews,I was considering getting one for my youngest Daughter to shot,it has an adjustable draw length and poundage adjustment too,so a Young Shooter or Woman can use it and it is suppose to be a very good Bow.I know of a few Guys that bought one to use as a second Bow when they were Bear Hunting and it can be adjusted for me to use also.I checked around and got a few prices and it varied from around $259.00 to $279.00 for a bare Bow.

Martin is hard to beat ;)  If they spent the advertising money that mathews does, their prices would be sky high like mathews. But they dont, so they have affordable bows that can go toe to toe with any manufaurer.

On my last bow I did what Mobow said to do. I shot every bow in my price range I could. I drove around to a few shops and big stores. I ended up with a Diamond stud. I could have gone up to higher priced bows but the Stud is what I liked best. So take your time and shoot all the bows you can.

ting is now out....I have a wrist strap release and just can't use it...so I'm switching to a thumb release...much more comfortable...so wouldn't mind some thoughts thrown out...yes I know it really is the feel for the bow...but....I'd like to narrow the field a bit...so many options...Thanks in advance


Ms. Badge,

Have you considered getting back into the Traditional world? It might re-spark those butterflies.

As far as compound bows go, I have a PSE Stinger and it has worked flawlessly for me.

I have added some things:

String Silencers
String Stop
Wrist Sling
Quiver
Whisker Biscuit
PSE 3 Pin sights (20, 30, and 40)
Custom String
Stabilizer
Tubeless 1/4" Peep Sight (get the big one for a good sight window)
D-Loop

I have found that the arrows that work best with this set up are Cabelas Stalker Extreme 55/70 8.3 GPI with the Blazer vanes.

On occasion I still shoot a recurve but I enjoy the compound....When doing any change I need to research it to death....It took for ever to get me to switch to carbons...They have a New Breed dealer not tooo awful far from here...reason I asked..but sent them an "E" with no response..not a good sign....will be traveling to Ackleys in PA soon so will be shooting some bows there...it's where we picked up my Remington lft.handed 243...hard to find in NY.....I have a nice Truglo sight and a Peep eliminator for rt hand left eye dominance  ...which I loved for practice...seriously....but after last year I don't think I can be comfortable in a hunting situation again....will more than likely go back to instinctive...it served me well for many year and many deer..actually all but 3 buck I've ever taken...I have a harder time shooting doe than buck during archery ...go figure.

Any how I've been leaning toward the Stinger....it just feels right in my hand...ppl say well it's not the "fastest" bow out there..to which I reply I have a Hoyt raider/intruder...65% let off....just about anything on the market today will be faster..lighter ..and easier to draw...lol[;)]

I did what you did. I went and held and fired a bunch of different bows. The Stinger is what I always came back to, for the feel and for the price. The only bow that felt as 'right' to me as the Stinger cost $400 more. No thanks.

The Deer won't know the price tag of the bow when the arrow travels through them cleanly.
