there is no correct answer to this question. just a bunch of honest opinions. in my honest opinion, Hoyt, Mathews, BowTech, and Bear make the best compound bows. it's just your personal preference. that's mine.

Do your research to narrow your choices then go shoot a few. That's the only way I was able to make a choice. I wanted a small, light bow so I narrowed it to the Mathews DXT, Diamond Black Ice, and PSE X-Force TS. I shot all of them and decided on the Mathews DXT, and haven't regretted it! Shoot then decide; that's my advice.

all in your opinion, I shoot a pse but I can't necessarily influence you to do the same it's how you feel shooting a certain bow wether you want a larger bow such as a matthews or a smaller bow like a martin it's up to you.

All the major manufacturers make fantastic bows. I got a new one several years ago and I shot hoyt, bowtech, matthews, pse, and several others. I chose hoyt because i shot it best. Also dont get caught up in the speed race. Accuracy is more important.

It is just a matter of opinion and what works best for you but i say stick with the major brands like bowtech, matthews, pse and hoyt. There are enough places that let you shoot before you buy dont buy without trying it first.

Same as everyone else has said, a matter of opinion. I shoot a PSE, now I would love to get my hands on a nice Matthews of Hoyt and see how they feel when I shoot them, but they are still out of my price range, but have only heard good things about them. Dont get me wrong PSE makes a fantastic bow as well.

I have a Bear and I absolutely love it but other than Bear I think the other best brands are obviously Hoyt and Matthews, but I also like the Diamonds.

Everyone is going to have their favorite but you will never go wrong with a Hoyt, a Mathews bow, or a PSE.

I don't want to start any wars here but I believe Hoyt is the best followed by Mathews. I hardly ever hear complaints about Hoyt yet I've heard a few about Mathews. Nonetheless both of these brands won't let you down and neither will bowtech, browning, PSE, Bear, etc. Almost all of it comes down to the time you're willing to dedicate to practice and getting yourself ready for the season.

It's all about choice and performance, mathews does it for me. My son swears by bowtech. Go to a archery proshop and shoot several brands to find out what feels good to you. I think it does help to hear that this or that brand preforms well, but it comes down to what ever you feel comfortable shooting is what you should buy

I honestly think Mathews.. I've shot a few hours and I think their all talk, I also have a diamond and it shoots well but not that fast. Accuracy is all in the shooter, so I like fast bows... Can't get any better then the Mathews monster series.
