I like my girlfriend's Micro Phoenix but nothing really stands out in a crowd with it, just a good solid bow.

like most bows on the market today, they're a great bow that share the patent with mathews. my sugestion: don't pick a brand of bow, pick a type of bow (ie, length, forgiving, speed) then shoot all within the class and then pick which you like best.
a new company that i've liked is ROSS; check them out too.

The bow is a used 2004 Ultra Light, I'm thinking of buying it for a back up.

IN MY OPINION , any bow you can buy through the mail is junk. A buddy bought a Parker last summer because he thought Mathews were too pricey. When he showed it to me , I shot it and laughed at him, it sucked! For 80$ more the cheapskate coulda got a switchback like I did. You guys shooting PSEs,Parkers,&Diamonds think there good because you dont make the extra effort to go to a proshop a shoot a Hoyt or Mathews , if you did youd see the diff.I dont mean to insult anyone but I hate to see my hunting bros buy an infierior bow to save a couple $

I just gota newParker Hornet for Christmas and it's a super nice bow. Check em out on their website at parkerbows.com. My buddyshoots an'01 Mathews and he was blown away by the speed of my bow when we first shot it. It's a bad joker.

God bless ya , Im glad you like your bow , but W/ all do respect , fast bows dont kill, broadheads do and smooth shooting low shocking bows get them in the vitals better. Dont compare FPS, compare quality & how it feels when the bow goes off. In that comparison Ill put my 06' XT or even my 01' MQ 32 up against any Parker.
