Shoot everyone listed above and then pick the one you like. $1K is a good amount to spend on a bow. Check out a bunch of different accessories (ie sights, quivers arrow holders etc etc) You can afford to be choosy.

Honestly for that price you are right at the bare bow price for the very top end bows... the Invasions, monsters, insanitys, Z-7, Omen ect. Then realize your adding another $300 for the setup. Again don't buy a bow because someone says its awesome. Shoot everything you can, but I would take a hard look at the bowtech assain. At my buddy's shop in northern KY they are one of the best selling bows on the rack and it will tip the scales under your price range.

I would say shoot them all but what I found is that Hoyt and Bowtech shot the best for me.

When it comes down to it, your opinion is what matters. Shoot everything that interests you and buy what feels the best.

Good luck in your search.
I agree with you completely. My friends dad has a Matthews. I was watching him shoot, it was as loud as my bear charge...He ask me what i shoot now and i told him. He didn't really have a response. I was watching him struggle to hit an apple at 15 yards...I picked up my bear and shot it from 30 yards. He was surprised to say the least.

its all about what feels best to you and what you want to shoot! i've been loyal to bear archery my whole life, and i will until they disappoint me.

I have to stress buying the bow from a pro shop. I'd follow the "big hairy guy's" advice as he knows of a nearby shop that will treat you right.
