Thanks in advance

You shoot the Mathews and Hoyt and a bunch of others at Simon Peters and make the decision for yourself.[up]

unfortunetly everyone has thier own preference, a bow i may like you may not.. try a few and you'll see what i mean.. pick one that first off fits your budget and feels good in your hand.. i personally think some of the biggest selling pointz for me are the the feel of the bow and how smooth of a draw it has.. hope that helps...

The best advice.

As for not knowing what your looking for, the bow that, as my brother in law put it when I was looking, "falls into your hands", buy that one.

you didnt say where you went to look at bows, but keep in mind getting the bow serviced.

you may buy a bow like the bowtech, but the bow stores around you may not work/have strings for the brand you buy. So if you were to buy a bowtech lets say, and the archery shop near you does not work on them, you may need to drive far for any future service.

i myself have a bowtech and i love it.

alphamax smokes em all ( other hoyt bows) katera is slightly faster bute the AM is smoother , lighter, quiter , and just plain lethal. i had a bowtech( great bow company ) shot the reezin and the alphamax was just better for me. dont know where you live but Mike @ A & M archery in Lakewood is super knowlegable.Good luck

anyone have any info on the hoyt katera, vetrix or vetrix Xl would be appreciated as well
I have a Katera XL and I love it. Fast and forgiving. A bit big and a tad louder than the others but by the time the deer hear it is far too late[up]

Have you looked at any parkers yet? The Parker vanguard is a sweet bow and you can get it all set up with arrows for about 450 bucks.
