I don't think Matthews is going to come out with a new target bow anytime soon ... The main reason is because why fix it if its not broken . There are tons of Apex's at every tournament and they are still winning . The only thing I don't like about it is you have to have a long draw length to get any speed out of it .
Primes are sweet shooting bows (not just because that's what I'm shooting ) . I can't shoot the Prime One because the draw length doesn't go down far enough for me (26") but I'm shooting the Impact and it is a really good shooting bow. They are a breeze to tune ! Let me know if your considering one and ill talk to you more about them .

Yep that's the million dollar question...how much are you wanting to spend on one. And a good follow up question...who are you gonna take it to, to have it serviced? I don't mean this in a mean way and I'm not calling anybody out. So I hope nobody reads my post and accuses me of that this go around.

If you don't plan on working on the bows and tuning them yourself...you are better off finding a reputable dealer that you trust, and stick with what they sell and know the most about tuning. The fact is...there are a lot of GREAT bows out there on the market today. All it takes is for somebody to tune them correctly, and then the work begins on setting them up to your shooting style. Not because Levi, Chance, or the local shop shooters all shoot it. Figuring out what stabilizer lengths and weights you need, and where to put all of it has been the bigger challenge for me to deal with. Shooting with a lens, or without? What power? What size scope housing? Clarifier or no clarifier? LP Light kit? Picking the bow is just a small part in it. Getting the bow in spec is easy. Tuning them can be a pain some times. But setting them up perfectly for you...that's the hard part, because there's no cookie cutter format to go by. It's all the individual.

If I go by what the tech i trust the most it will be an Apex 7. I was hoping to see something new from them(Mathews) though.
