Default What bows do you shoot?

I've been shooting a Mathews mq32 bow, for a long time. Great bow light shoots great patterns, etc, all good, however, a lot of great bows with so many features out there now, i am considering buying a new bow. can anyone give me some pros and cons ? before i spend a grand and make a mistake?. I would appreciate any input, and of course i will shoot a few first, but there are a lot of nice bows out now. if anyone has experience with the newer bows, it would certainly help. thanks ROMAN

For the longest time now I've used the "Bear Archery Br33 Rh 70"
It's lightweight enough, feels very smooth. I feel no vibration and it's very quiet when I shoot. I can stack arrows on top of each other at 40yards as a novice with bows.

I use a browning tornado(close to 20 yrs old) for big game
and a 25# 1960's or 70's cougar bow for small game
both have been great

I'm using a 2003 Hoyt Razortec. Just switched to goldtip arrows and rage broadheads. I don't see a reason to buy a new one. I am going to be upgrading my sight and possibly my rest for next season.

I say stick to your current bow. IF IT AINT BROKE DONT FIX IT. I got a 06 Bowtech Tribute that I love. I was thinking about buying something new and shot a bunch of new bows back in 15. I just didnt think any justified the $1000. So I went and bought a Tenpoint for $1500. Now I got another weapon. The xbow is helpful on ground hunts.

Now your next post should be I got $1000 to spend on whatever. What should I buy? lol

Bear Archery 2016 Escape model, great bow, never regret buying it. Do not agree with the previous comment about "stick to your bow". Your Mathews mq32 is really outdated. There are plenty of new models on the market. I am looking for something new, too. Want to try a single pin sight, want a cleaner sight, but different bow sight lists like these place multipin on the top, Have no idea why. Have no idea if multi-pin is considered to be better. I just got used to my device, but want to try another thing. Probably, you feel the same. Well, back to the topic, Bear Archery Escape is a reliable one. That's what I would recommend

I am also a fan of mq 32 bow. But if you want a change, I would recommend you some of the finest recurve bows:
