Thanks for all the replies. I will be shooting the Outback this week and have all but eliminated the Hoyt. The dealer will not let the bows be shot and I refuse to buy a boy I can't shoot first. The Mathews dealer is more than willing to completely rig a bow for me to try.

And for Bowtech, same dealer as the Hoyt. Take note I've spent plenty of money in his store in the last year.

Sorry, once more......I said wouldn't allow the bow to be shot, maybe I should say wouldn't take the time to put a rest on one to be shot.

Man, that really sucks. I was in a similar position. The 'big' dealer in town wouldn't change the draw lengths or weights on any of their bows, either. They pretty much acted like they really didn't even want anyone test-shooting anything. I only dealt with them because they were the only place in the area that had BowTechs. I chose the Liberty after shooting it and I'm extremely happy with my choice - I just don't think I'll put up with that dealer again when it comes to buying my next bow.

Well, based on your position I feel you will make a wiser decision going with whatever dealer treats you better...in this case the Mathews dealer. I think having a knowledgable bow shop owner who is willing to help you out is more important than what the name on the bow says.

I just bought my matthews outback and it is AWSOME. I came in and said i wanted to shoot the Outback and the grip just felt perfact in my hand. The grip on my dads Razortec makes me bleed on the top of my hadn and i really dont like it. When he was cutting my arrows i picked up the Xtec and it felt 100 times worse then my dads Razortec. I could put one hand around 6 arrows at 20 yards right away i knew that was the bow for me. I think my hand is just too big for the skinny Hoyt grips.

I have had problems with local pro shops as well. Last year when I started to get heavy in to bow hunting, I bought a new bow (Legacy), and went to the proshop to get some advice/help about setting up the rest/sights of the bow. The Owner was the one helping me (if you could call it that), I dont know a lot about archery equipment at this point, but after about a minute of showing me sights, he jerked the sight out of my hands and told me he dont care what I get just to hurry up and pick it. I guess he was in a hurry to do nothing, the store was empty. This really pissed me off, and have gone back since, and prob. will never go back[>:]
