    Hello All,

    I am looking into getting a new bow and am looking for some input. I am a fan of Matthews, but am open to any brand. I currently shoot a Quest Torrent G5 and it has treated me well for the last 4 years with no issues just looking to upgrade. Whatcha guys got?

    the best piece of advice i can give you is go out and shoot as many as you can. What you like may not work for you or you just might flat out not like it. I have had my Stinger X since 16, hasnt done me wrong. I will probably upgrade after this season but enough about me. Plain and simple, shoot as many bows due to the difference in height, weight, etc. Good luck!!.

    With the crazy advancement in bows in the last 10 years...most bows High end are very similar. It's all what flavor ice cream you like. Try them all and make sure you love what to you get

    I'd say go shoot them all and pick the one you like best as long as it's a Hoyt

    I’m a Hoyt Carbon fan. But if you like Mathews, check out the triax and no cam. Both nice little bows. I’m thinking of getting a Mathews or PSE again myself.

    I have a 2016 Bowtech BTX-28 and just bought the Mathews Triax this year. Love them both! Lots of good brands to look at. I'd take a couple hours and shoot everything your bow shop has to offer.

    I always bring my current bow in and shoot back to back. Many times I’ve left with my current bow. I shot the triax and thought “meh”. Currently shooting a bowtech experience.

    I like Obsession and Mathews, try a few before deciding.

    I like the idea of a direct comparison to your current setup. Not only will you have a better idea of your comfort level with a new one, it may make you appreciate what's already in your hand and keep you from making a "hype" purchase and being unhappy later on.

    If you already have a bow you like and it's only 4 years old, keep the bow and invest the $1000.

    The only company that has made real improvements in the last 5 years is Prime. Other manufacturers are just reinventing the wheel. Ironicly, Prime & G5 are the same company.
