Want to thank everyone for their input and opinions, placed an order for a Bowtech Allegiance, jack of all trades master of none, but thinking that it will suit my style the best.

I have owned 2 Allegiances, 2 Guardians, and now I own 2 82nd Airbornes. I loved my Allegiances and took several animals with them. I still have a Guardian that I shoot for 3D and indoor league. I sold one Guardian and my Allegiances recently and replaced them with the 82nds. The Guardian is the quietest of the three but at my 27 inch draw length, it is also the slowest. It could also be the most pinpoint accurate of the three. However, even though the Allegiance is very quick, quiet, accurate, and shootable, I have found the 82nd just as shootable, accurate, even quicker, but slightly noisier (not enough to make a difference). I have also shot the 101st and if I had a 29 inch or longer draw, it probably would be my choice if I was only going to have one bow. However, at my draw length the 82nd is like a dream come true. I have a 60 lb and a 70 lb 82nd and I am getting speed out of my 60 lb 82nd that I had a hard time getting before at 70 lbs. The only other comment that I might add for you is that you probably should compare kinetic energy out of each bow at your particular draw length. I try to make sure I have 60 foot pounds or better with all of my hunting bows (elk) and with any of these bows, that is not a problem. All of the above bows are great bows but one will fit your style and needs better (personal preference). Shoot them all and good luck making your choice. I hope this helps a little.
