Well, for the last 5 years, I have shot Hoyt. And over the last 2 years I have wanted to try out a 27.5" draw over a 27". So, I went to my local shop to see if they had any in stock, and of course the only one they had was a Triax... I have always been very partial to the brands that I use. As being a Hoyt guy for a while, I know the opinions that most people have for Mathews, and I too have gradually adopted this way of thinking . Anyways, I tried out the Triax, and immediately contemplated my loyalty to Hoyt. I have not shot any of the newer Hoyts, so I do not know how they shoot. All I know is that with my Carbon Spyder Turbo, Im pulling back 60#, but might as well be pulling 70# and the Triax felt closer to 50 when the guy at the shop measured it as 62#. My main question is how does the Triax hold up at longer ranges? Going from a 32" ATA to a 28" is a big difference. I wouldn't shoot at an animal past 35 yards (unless hunting in a field, 30 yards would be the longest shot I would have to take on an animal where I hunt). But I like to practice at 60 all the way to 90 yards just for fun, as well as competition archery.
