Default new bow???? please help

Hey guys look here's my dilemma I just sold my hoyt katera I want to upgrade with a bigger brace height bow and a tad lighter setups I shot almost every bow out the mathews I don't like neither do I like bowtech so that leaves me trying to decide in between a alpha max 32 (bone collectors) edition or the 2009 pse dream season gx. The thing is I have shot hoyt for nearly 4 years now but it seems as if the amax has a string twang after the shot causing vibration to where the pse has virtually none it also seems as if the string suppressor on the hoyt doesn't touch the string to where the pse does can you guys give me some insight and opions. On these bows thank you so much

You can adjust the string suppressor on the AM so that it touches. I've never shot the PSE but that alphamax is an awesome bow, if I had the money it's the one I'd get.

In the July field and stream they have the 09 bow shootout..and heres the hits and misses on the Hoyt . The Hits are: The back wall is solid, the draw cycle is good and its very light weight. The misses are: There was some hand shock despite trying to mask it. I havent shot the dream season but ive shot the Hoyt and its awesome. If i was in need of a new bow id deffinately get it. I shoot a hoyt Vectrix now and love it despite the weight. But hoyt has shed alot of weight on the Alpha Max

I shot a Martin Firecat the other day and it's pretty impressive, and a nice price.
