Went to the local shop today. Shot the Helim, Victor 32 and Carbon Element. After a few hours of shooting and pacing around I decided to go with the Mathews. All excellent bows but the Mathews just felt better in my hand and more balanced. The Hoyt seemed like a smoother bow on the draw. Pretty funny the guy helping me out shot a Hoyt carbon. When I was done shooting the helim I told him this is such a smooth bow, have you shot it? He said nope and I don't want to, I just ordered a new Hoyt and I don't want to regret it. Just a funny story no one freak out.
Cool story!! Enjoy that new Bow and glad you tried a few to find the one to fit! Welcome to the forums!
I got a new bow today also. I went with the hoyt. I just about got the mathews. They both shot great and felt good. Dont laugh to much at me but the grip on the hoyt fit my hand better.

Grats on the new bow's guys. i guess this is why i went with the PSE EVO, No grip on them what so ever. I dont wrap my entire had around the grip, just my thumb and index finger and they are barely holding on to the bow. If i wrap me entire hand on it i cant hold still to save my life
Nice! I took my brother in law to our local pro shop because he was disappointed with his, they had a new Heli M in tactical black and he LOVED it. I wouldn't be surprised to see him with a Heli M here soon. Also, the tactical grip Mathews sells is awesome, I like it almost as much as I like the grip on my G5. Congrats on the new bow!

congrats on the new bow
Both good bows and good companies. For me it was the 2012 Carbon Element it was too sexy and yes, I shot the Heli-m but for only me it did not feel right.
Congrats on your new rig! You will love it!

Whatever guys, I can't understand why nobody is talking about Bowtech. I shot Mathews and hoyt and bought the Bowtech Invasion over them. My bow rocks
