DNA is a very fast bow however if you don't shoot a lot you may want to try something with longer brace height which in return gives you more forgiveness. I have shot the creed, the Hoyt Spydwr turbo, the Spyder 34(I think that's the name of it), the pse evo, the bow tech experience, the elite pure,and the answer. However, the bow I brought home was the prime defy. With all the bows out today you would do yourself a dis service to not give them all a chance. I love my prime and the elites came in at a close second followed by bow tech and Hoyt. Give them all a chance but I would at least try elite and prime.

everyone likes something different and for different reasons. Shoot what you can and see what fits the best. I personally have shot Mathews, PSE, Hoyt, Bear and Elite...so far the Elite was my personal favoriate for sure.

Even though I shoot a Mathews, I'm a fan of only one kind of bow.....the one that feels and shoots the best to me! Bows are the exact same as tennis shoes--one of the exact same model will feel and react differently to every person that uses it. Go with an open mind and shoot every single one within your price range and let the bow pick you, not the other way around. If you're having trouble picking up subtle differences between bows then stand immediately in front of a target and close your eyes when you draw back, only to open them again long enough to make sure you're on target and then close your eyes again and release the string--our eyes have a funny way of distorting things and covering up small details that ofherwise get "overlooked".

also dont forget to shoot some of the small named bows like Elite, Obsession and Athens. The warranty on those are even better then Hoyt or Mathews and all 3 make fantastic bows. Not sure where you are located but there is an Elite dealer here in Hermitage and i know there are some obsession dealers near by.

I have shot several different brands from the bear that I started with 25 years ago to PSE, Darton, Matthews, Bowtech, and my new High Country X10. All bought because they felt right. Try them out and pick the one that feels right. The technology in bows today is great because it means that there is something out there for everybody. Personally I don't think there is a compound bow out there today that is worth a grand naked, so don't pass up the right one just because it isn't pricey. Makes no sense to pay all that money for some of them just to make up the makers advertising and endorsement cost. Pay for the product not the hype.
