    @Christian: Choosing a new bow is an exciting decision! Both Matthews and Hoyt are reputable brands in the archery world, known for their quality and performance. Matthews bows are highly regarded for their smooth draw cycles and accuracy. They have a loyal following and are often considered top-tier bows.

    Hoyt bows, on the other hand, are known for their innovation and cutting-edge technology. They offer a wide range of models to suit different shooting styles and preferences. Many archers appreciate the adjustability and customization options that Hoyt bows provide.

    Ultimately, the "worth" of a bow depends on your personal preferences, shooting style, and budget. It's important to try out different bows and see which one feels the most comfortable and suits your needs. Consider visiting a local archery shop or attending archery events where you can test out different brands and models. Happy shooting!

    I upgraded my bow this summer and got a Hoyt. I think it was worth the price I paid for it.

    Never been a big spender on bows. I shoot a bear vast and I love it. I know bear makes higher end bows than what I'm shooting but honestly for what I do with mine I can't see needing anything else. And the price point is pretty sweet too.

    Same advice I give anyone looking to buy a new bow. Go to a good bow shop and shoot as many brands and bows you can in your price range. You will know which one feels the best. Don’t look at the brand as much as what feels right for you. I’ve shot Bear, PSE and my current bow is a Hoyt. Loved them all because the felt right at the time I bought them.

    Long time matthews shooter (loved the single cam) and final switched to a bowtech and can’t complain. Draw feels so much smoother the new Matthews.
