I prefer the bowtech bows over the mathews bows but my buddies all like the mathews bows better. What do you guys think?
I shoot a Bowtech TomKat and I can tell you this much, its the best bow I have ever had! I used to shoot Darton, and I used that Darton bow for almost 6 years until it finally gave in. I looked into many different bows and yes, Mathews, was at the top of the list for me to look into. But the more I searched and researched I found that the Bowtech Company had alot more to offer as in customer service, and to me, thats a big thing.
If your asking which bow you should get, then I can tell you that its a matter of preference and that Bowtech has great bows for reasonable prices, but if all your looking for is an opinion, then BOWTECH BOWS ARE THE BEST! #1 ALL THE WAY!!
I like mathews
I think you have picked the best of the best. Based on the latest recalls on the bowtech bows I think I would pick the mathews.
Bowtech and Matthews are both great bows. My friend has a Drenaline and it's extremely accurate, but I have a Diamond The Rock (made by Bowtech.) I prefer Bowtech bows over any other bows on the market. I think that different people should like bows based on how accurate, strong, and reliable they are. And Bowtechs seem to be the best there is and are considerably less expensive than Matthews bows. BOWTECH ROCKS!!!!!
I like bowtech,mine got me 2 deer last season!!
They are both going to be great bows. I have a Mathews while my best friend has a Bowtech. They both are fast quiet and accurate perfect for any bow hunter.
Personally I perfer bowtech....I use a 101st Airborne and its really quite and fast a combination that u dont normally get with top of the line bows.....and you all should really try out the centurion site on sword acusite....its great
Find a bow you like and can shot well with. Just because your buying a Bowtech or a Mathewes doesn't mean your going to be a better hunter. Just find one that fits you and you like and go with it.
You can't go wrong with either one. I own a Mathews and absolutely love it, but I have shot the Bowtech and it was a great bow as well.
Definitely Mathews. Mathews has won 34 championships in the ASA World Championships and 33 championships in IBO world championships, the rest of all bow manufacturers combined have won six and seven respectively.
Much more good information on this page
I like my diamond(bowtech), but i've never shot a mathews. I have heard from a competetive shooter that mathews bows sometimes explode for no reason.
I shoot a Mathews bow personally, but I've had the chance to shoot the Bowtech for about three weeks because I was setting a new bow up for my close friend. This Bowtech is a tremendous piece of equipment, absolutely on par with my Mathews. You can't make a mistake with either. And to Steve182, Your information is probably wrong, Mathews makes excellent equipment that you can count on for the long haul.
I'm a Mathews man myself. I worked with two guys that shot "Pro" for P.S.E. and Bear, and they'd tell you to go with what feels comfortable to you.
Good luck and Good hunting !
Good advice Big O. Guys that work in the industry will tell you the differences are minimal between similar priced bows. Practice is the key to shooting good.
i bought a bowtech three week's ago and i love it, you cant go wrong with bowtech... although i'm sure mathew's are great too.. i think that you should pick one of each that fits you good and ask too shoot them before buying... where i got my bowtech they let me.. then choose the one you like the best
I own a Buckmaster G2, Bowtech Pro 38, and a Mathews Reezen 7.0. My Bowtech and Mathews are both high-dollar bows. However, my Buckmaster G2 cost under $400. Of the my three bows the Buckmaster is the smoothest and the quietest. I've killed many deer with my G2 and have supreme confidence in it. Lesson learned: don't buy a name!
i chose mathews for my self but both are great hunting bow s and 3d shoting bows but as for buying the name as reezen said it about quality not the name in any bow. all company make a few bad one s and all are over priced. shot them both at a pro shop and go with the one that feels best to you .that would be my advice to any one
best of luck this season to all
Matthews Q2xl and Hoyt gamemasters rule!
I have a bowtech Tomkat. I have seen alot of other bows being shot and I like the sound (which isn't much) of bowtech over any others.
I shoot a PSE and will never change, they own the market right now with their X-force, but Bowtech has their 82nd Airborne that looks like it would rock. If I didn't shoot PSe that is the bow I would shoot...
i shoot a switchback xt, which i like better than the new slim limb mathews. I love my mathews but Bowtech makes a great bow too. 6 one way 1/2 dozen another. personal preference
personally i prefer a bowtech over a mathews mainly because i feel they both have really nice bows but Bowtech definatly doesn't hurt your wallet as much.... so why spend an extra hunderd dollars when you dont have too... Only paid 350$ for an allegiance while i know people who have spent 350$ on a lower end mathwes.... I just dont like paying for a name i guess...
man mattews is thecaddy of all bows but bow tech is coming on fast its a toss up for me
PSE employs more engineers than any other bow company, which is part of what makes them one of the best companies out there. And the X-Force Omen is the Caddy of bows :P
I love my diamond rapture from bow tech
bowtech by far
Ford or Chevy? No matter who ya talk to, your gonna get different answers.I shoot a Mathews Switchback,the local pro shop only carries Bowtech,I had him put on a new string last season and he said don't ever sell my bow because it was one of the best bows ever put on the market.I have family that shoots both Mathews and Bowtech,never hear complaints from anyone.My opinion is Mathews is quiter and Bowtech is faster! Which do you prefer?
