Well after using my walmart bow for the past two seasons, i decided to splurge and by myself something nice. I went to Neshoba Archery in Tumbling Shoals Friday before work to look around. I told myself I was going to by the Hoyt Vectrix no matter what. Once I got up there and looking around, I picked up a Mathews DXT. I hate Mathews, I guess its like what Nikes are to the shoe company, way over advertised, BUT this bow felt so darn nice. I love the way it feels, its light, and about 5 inches shorter than my old bow. I gave $649 for the bow, $70 for HHA sights, and a whisker bisquit. I can't express how much I love my new bow. I also picked up two more dozen of Easton ST Epics, with the blazers already on which will save me fletching time. Today I picked up a quiver for it at Academy. The Hoyt was too heavy for me. I also looked at the Reflex Growler, and it felt like hauling a boulder around.

Excellent choice. I bought a new SBXT when they came out and love it. I shot the Drenalin last year and the DXT when they came out this year. Nice but I was wanting something other than a Mathews so I bought a still new 07 Bowtech Tribute. Nice shooting bow too. Like 'em both equally, different draw cycles but both will flat out shoot.

I thought all bows were made the same, :). But this bow shoots really accurate, and feels great. I know from now on I will aways have G5 Meta Peeps put on, or atleast 1/4" peep sight, my other bow has 1/8" on it. I really like HHA sights too. I should have shopped around for a used bow instead of dropping $900 on a bow setup, but I really like everything about DXT. This is coming from someone that hated Mathews...

Most of the folks I hunt with shoot Mathews of one sort or the other...both brothers, father, couple buddies etc. I conciously told myself NOT to buy mathews when everyone hyped em. So when I got my cash together and decided I was going to buy, I shopped around. I shot the PSEs, I shot the Hoyt, and I shot the Bowtechs (admitedly didnt shoot the new martins). And after shooting a good dozen or so shots through each of their top brands, I went and shot the DXT just so I could say I did. Didnt even need a dozen shots. Just pulling it back and letting the first couple fly...it just feels so good for hunting. Ive been trying to get to the range about once a week since March, and each time I go Im STILL completely happy and enjoy shooting it. I cant wait to get into a treestand with it.

Bear season in what...5 weeks........
