    I have been thinking about getting a different bow. I want to get a used bow with longer axle-axle 7 inch or bigger brace height, very forgiving and very easy on my shoulders. Something I can shoot 50 arrows a day out of and not feel beat up. What do you think I should get?

    Mathews HTR. No it's not the fastest bow in the world but it feels so good to shoot and it doesn't wear you out.

    I shoot 28/70 w 385g arrows and get 278 fps. For 3d I bump down to 62lb. Most accurate and easy to shoot bow I've ever shot.

    Yes. He is talking about the No Cam HTR. They also make a No Cam HTX which is 30 inch ATA.

    I agree with the no cam HTR. I just bought one, it is my first Matthews. This thing shoots so great I can take 75 or hundred shots per day. I'm not a speed guy, all I care about is accuracy.

    Are you left handed? I have a MR7 left handed that's at 70lb and I also have 60lb limbs that are included. It's a longer ATA bow at 33.5 inches axle to axle very forgiving and fast ImageUploadedByBowhunting.com Forums1460499745.855214.jpg

    Look for a Bowtech boss you can shoot I think you will find it on the number 3 setting it will be so nice to shoot and very easy on your shoulder . Just my two cents.

    No Cam HTR should fit your needs perfectly.
