    4... no reason for it.
    I only ever shoot the newest bow I have.. the others just sit around and look pretty.
    I have a creed that I may turn into a bow fishing rig or something.

    Sounds good. I shot the demo model at the dealer. I instantly fell in love with it. It's blistering fast and I thought very smooth for a speed bow. To be honest I couldn't tell the difference from the other carbon spyder models that had a 3/4 longer BH. The new turbo cam is not quite as smooth as the z5 cam but still really nice. I liked the valley, when your at full draw it's not like the cams wanna jump, which was what I was kind of expecting. I had it narrowed down to the 34 and the turbo, the 30's to short for me. In the end I chose the turbo over the 34 because I figured since both bows feel similar although the 34 was a tad bit smoother due to the cams it was such a small difference that I took the faster model. Not that I think speed is overly important but all in all the turbo ZT just seemed perfect to me. I didn't think I'd be buying a new bow this yr but got to good of a deal not to buy it. I went with the black out version 28" draw maxed out with 70# limbs. I can't wait to get it. This bow is a beast!

    I also shot the nitrum turbo it's a really nice bow as well, but after owning the carbon element it's hard for me to go back to a heavier bow, the carbons just seem way nicer to me.

    I agree. I think I still want to shoot the nitrum 34 just to check it out, but right now my CST 80# from last year is still my favorite boy. I'm thinking blacked out if I get one, because my ChillR I'm selling is blacked out and maybe she won't notice :-)

    Congrats on your new Hoyt CS ZT. I was just having my Mathews NO Cam HTR tuned at the pro shop when I noticed the ZT and immediately had to pick it up. It was so freaking light and unique that I told my gf that I needed one. The Hoyt wasn't as dead in the hand as the NO Cam, but man it felt cool.

    I have four bows. Bear Kodiak magnum recurve I got for Christmas in 1972 and keep around for when I want to shoot instinctive. Bought a diamond ROCK in 2007 and got a hog with it. Treated myself to a Mathews Z7 Extreme in 2010 because I wanted to shoot more poundage. Got a deer with it before blowing out my shoulder in 2011 and bought a left hand Mission Menace to hunt with until I got my right shoulder fixed. Got shoulder fixed in 2012 and got lighter limbs for the Z7 and that's what I'm shooting today. I keep the ROCK as my backup bow and I still use the left handed Menace occasionally to keep left handed shooting skills up. See no need for another bow.
