Read this thread and you can see why I gave up on this area. Martin makes fine bows. Much better than some of the gimicky crap even endorsed here on occasions.

One person made a remark about the Mathews crowd. A certain percentange can be a bit annoying at times. I do have a Drenalin but I started with PSE and still have an old Browning (many were made by PSE as I think AR) but none of that really matters. I do like my Drenalin but I don't like the nonadjustable cam. If I pass it down to my son, I have to chunk out some more cash.

I've also shot a Bengal dressed out and it was a tad heavier and a bit slower, much less expensive but in many ways just as sweet. If I were to replace the Mathews, I'd do it with a Martin even considering Bowtech, PSE (private brand name PSEs), Parkers, etc. There is some other brand starts with "H"... the name escapes me ;\)

There is something to be said about having a practical working man's bow. A tool of harvest. I do think about the old price tag as I rough-ride through on the Honda. I invest in a good hardshell case!

Good accessories are in my mind what really make or break the rig - not as much the bare bow. If I had to do it again, I'd save money myself and get the Martin and add a good Toxonics extended sight, comfortable release and a Ripcord dropaway. The rest of the bit at whatever apealed to me at the moment.

PC Just my opinion... but if you decide to get one, I'd be shocked if you regretted it. I'm not you.. don't know.. but I'd be shocked.

Personally Im a bowtech man just because they stand by their product and I have a place close if I need parts.

Shoot some bows and get what feels best to you, even a crapthews if it feels good \:D


Can't agree that Mathews bows are crap. They make great bows,ande it's not a cult.
Also agree there are a lot of other good bow makers today.
More than enough to find a good bow you like.

Words like crapthews discredits your objectivity to real archers.


No no, I probably shouldnt have said that but thats not exactly what I meant. Mathews makes a mighty fine bow.

Shoot what you like, im just saying I dont like some of the mathews owners that are always bashing other bow brands and think that mathews are so great when they have no idea what they are talking about. Lots of posers and goobers shoot mathews just because thats what they see on tv all of the time, and they think everything else sucks. I know a few like that. ;\) People that walk around saying catch us if you can after they shoot or post it everywhere.



Like I said shoot what fits you best.

Mathews makes a mighty fine bow, if you like it, buy it.
