In my experience, the brand most frequently bashed on is Mathews, which is insane of course because they make great bows. But it all comes out in the wash because Mathews seems to be the most worshipped, too. The John McEnroe of bow companies, I guess. I don't know who is nuttier, though, the Mathews haters, who are so certain of the company's impiety that they would never lower themselves to actually try one, or the Mathews worshipers, for whom the possibility of another company making a comparable bow causes such physical pain that they can't even entertain the thought. Both are stark-raving mad.
