Default Need help deciding on new bow

I am in the market for a new bow. Currently I have been looking at the:
PSE Brute
Fred Bear Instint, Code, and The Truth
Diamond Rapture, Justice, and Triumph
Reflex Rampage, Growler and Ridgeline.
My price range is no more than $550. Right now I am leaning towards the Fred Bear Truth, PSE Brute or one of the Reflex bows. I plan on going to a pro shop and shooting some, if not all of these bows but i was just looking for some advice before I do that.

The best thing you can do is go shoot a bunch of them with an open mind. Pick the one that shoots and feels right for you. It doesn't matter what everyone else tells you.

I am very happy with my Instinct. I got it fully loaded for $440. I shot about 5 different bows (Bear Element, Mission X3, Bear Truth, PSE Brute), and I immediately knew the Instinct was my guy.

Bear truth, or element. I personally own and shoot the truth. have shot the others. Decided on the truth. All shoot well but when it came too all shooting in the same ball park and then the price IMO why pay so much for a lable.
