I know what you mean I live near Knoxville I wish I could find. A dealer that sales winchester bows I really really hate the price range of some of the bows I have looked at but I won't to buy one that I won't be disappointed about cause the bow I have now I bought now is a bow tech guardian and I didn't buy it new I didn't know much about them so after I bought the guy had some how dropped it out of his stand and he took it to get it fixed then I bought it it shots fine but it not what I like after I shot the PSE DNA and just about everywhere I go to look at bow they don't have much cause I shoot left handed

Just be sure before you rule out a bow , shoot the same bow at different shops if you can = have the dealer make sure the bow is in time and everything is set up right, It will make a big difference in the way a bow feels= they vary from one shop to the next, you never know who has dry fired one or what screw is loose.

I'm a Hoyt man just pick the one that feels right to you. Don't let us or someone else make the decision for you.

If you like the PSE DNA , then buy it ! I love my PSE bows . I also have a older model Hoyt Katera XL that is a fine bow too .
The best bow for you , is the bow you shoot best with . Shoot them all and decide from there .

I don't think there's a bow company out there today that doesn't produce a good shooting, high quality bow. Everything on the market today is better than what we had 10 yrs ago. Just the advancements that have been made in string material is amazing.

If you are on a tight budget, there are bows just for that now days...that are quite surprising if you give them a chance. All the shops you go to are going to try and point you towards the flagship models, but I've actually shot some of the non flagship models that I liked 10x as much as the flagship for the year.

A good example of this was last yr when I shot the Diamond Outlaw. That bow wasn't even on my radar AT ALL...didn't even want to shoot it to be honest. I went to shoot BowTech bows. After shooting all the BowTech models and not liking any of them to suit my fancy, they handed me the Diamond and offered it to me to shoot. I figured I would give it a try...and that bow almost came home with me that day. In my personal preferences on a bow, it blew the BowTechs out of the water...and Diamond is suppose to be BowTech's secondary company...the company that gets the BowTech 2nd's....the low end stuff.

Another example...this year with the PSE's. The flagship is the DNA...last yr it was the Evo. This yr I shot all the lineup when the PSE rep came by the shop when I happened to be there. Of all the 2013 bows they brought out...the one that I liked the best, ended up being their cheap one for the year....the Drive. I liked it best of all of them, including the DNA and Evo. So you never know...just gotta shoot them all with an open mind and you might be surprised. I'm shooting a Strother Hope this year man...a bow targeted with women in mind. 34" A-A, 6.5" brace height, 3.75 lbs mass weight. 342 fps IBO. Smooth drawing. Quiet shooting. Thumbs up.

Like everyone is saying shoot alot of different bows and let it pick you. I also was in the market for a new bow this year. I shot the elites, Hoyt spider, PSE's, Bear, and The new Mathews Creed. I came home with the Creed. It just felt the best to me. As said earlier every bow company makes great bows now days. As far as the Creed I have been shooting bows for 25 + years and I have never shot this good. The bow is very accurate and dead in the hands. Smooth draw and solid back wall. Main thing is to just have fun picking one.. Good luck!

I'd be curious if anyone shoots Parker's flagship, dealer only bow. I had a Blackhawk and it was very nice.
