    I would have to say that mathews might have the edge now. But when I used to shoot a lot(mid 90's) I had an Oneida Eagle strike eagle then a X80. At that time they were made near my hometown. So a lot of us had them. I used to love the speed and accuracy. But not the weight or length. Now a days I dont see to many of them with all the competition out there.

    Mine is PSE/Browning since they are the same now. i sent back a 6 year old delaminated browning and they sent me back a brand new bow at cost! My choice of what i wanted too! Great company!

    There is at least a 100% markup in bows.

    I voted for Bowtech even though my new bow is a Diamond. Its made by Bowtech so it should be a vote for Bowtech. It is quieter and smoother than my Martin.

    hoyts are damn sick bows. dont get me wrong, but ive been hearing alot about how over time the limbs become unequally stiff causing the cams to be offset. youll be lucky if you can can get five years out of a hoyt. Mathews on the other hand......
