    My personal opinion would be Switchback or Vectrix. A lot of folks say that to this day the Switchback is the best Mathews bow they've ever owned.

    Switchback hands down would take that over almost any bow on the market!

    Do you have a price range you are wanting to stay in? I have a buddy who may be looking to sell his Vectrix. Also, the 2013 Hoyt Chargers are a heck of a buy at $499. I was very close to buying one. Even had money down on one, but decided to go with the Spyder.

    I know a guy that has the Switchback and a couple guys that have the Vectrix. They all love their bows. Personally I don't think you can go wrong with either of those.

    I can say with total unbiased honesty that the Switchback is the best bow on this list. Its the best bow an most lists of bows!!!!
    You can have an opinion and have it be unbiased as well as honest.
    If you ask for what people think, they will tell you, sure people will have a bias towards what they own. Its human nature.

    If you want a Hoyt get one.....

    just don't compare the ones on your list to a Switchback. Pretty simple really!

    Being an owner of the switchback xt! There is no possible way to go wrong with this bow. Hoyt makes great bows but lets be honest here it's no mathews. Good luck an congrats on whatever you end up getting an make sure to post pictures!!
