    Its his money... He can do whatever he wants with it. Doesn't everyone talk about finding the bow that feels the most comfortable? Well the new bowtech might be better and if he's going to compete then it would be smart to purchase something that feels right to him.

    Did you ever stop to think the reason it held better is the lower draw weight is just more comfortable to you?

    Also, what kind of stabilization is on it ? Being that it is a target bow.

    I could do a search and find 20 threads where you talk about shooting as many bows as possible before deciding on the right one. Sounds like you should have taken your own advice.

    If you knew the history of me shooting bows to find the right one, you would know I have shot a ton of bows. Everything from PSE to other BowTechs to Missions to Elite and many others. The Insanity just wasn't out when I bought mine. If you knew the deal I got on it on top of loving it, you would understand why I bought it. The only bow to date that has came close to mine to me is the Insanity.

    Yes I did and that is why after thinking about it, I will be shooting a 70lb bow set exactly the same poundage as mine. With my stab on it. That's how I will compare the two.

    His does have a target stab and I did think about that also. Yet another reason I will be using my 8" hunting stab.

    That's it!!! I want a bow that is more versatile. I do well with mine in competition but, there is that little edge he others that shoot the Elite Open have that I would benefit from. I feel that if I can shoot 1st in my class out of 11 in and 9th overall with a hunting set up, I could probably consistently be top 5 and maybe even take that #1 spot some.

    On the other hand, if the BowTech doesn't make much difference, I will keep mine and set it up for target and convert it for hunting when season rolls around. Either bow, I can't lose.

    Good, atleast that way you are comparing apples to apples.

    I have had tons of people shoot my low poundage bows and target bows and fall in love with the way they hold and shoot.

    Really?? That's weird. I did that @ 29" and 67lb with my element. Not sure what it will do at max weight which is 74lb. I am guessing around 320 or so. That was with a 370gr arrow.
