If Bowtech/Diamond went down I would go with Elite, then possibly Mathews or PSE then last would be hoyt.

I am a left handed shooter so I don't get the luxury of shooting other people's bows. With the exception of my first month of shooting when I started with a cheap PSE model, all I have ever shot has been a Mathews. Literally.

Why a Mathews? Because I live in a a small market area and that was all the local shop carried at the time.

If I had to change. I have no idea, whatever I could find I guess.

With that preface, what difference does it really make? Just like Tiger Woods could beat all of us with a set of clubs from Walmart regardless of what we were swinging, isn't it the same with a bow?

I am sure there are some "low ender" exceptions, but for the most part, who cares.

If Bowtech went under I would likely shoot an Elite, High Country, Kodiak. It would have some version of a binary cam system.

I would not shoot a bow that had any type of cam and a halfsystem regardless of who made it.

If PSE went under.

It'd be between a Mathews and Hoyt. Leaning towards Mathews, because I REALLY like a single cam for target. I'd say a Drenalin LD along with an Apex 7 would be headed my way. Along with a Shrewd grip for the Mathews. . The Apex grip is nice, or lack of.

If I were going Hoyt. It'd be a Katera XL, and a ProElite w/ XT3000 limbs and I'd try to find Spirals for it. If no Spirals are found, I'd go C2's.

I'd say I'd be leaning towards the Mathews though, because I've become a big fan of single cams, especially for target. Even though I'm hunting with a Hybrid cam bow this year.

Steven I'm not sure why you like the Mathews grip, it's terrible lol.

I have shot Bowtech since there 2nd year in existent so if they were to go under then I guess as bad as I have to say it I would switch over to the dark side and go with Mathews. Did I say that!!!!! But I would have to change there god awful grip. And my very last bottom of the basement not even a choice would be Elite.

Honestly I do not even want to think about it. Bowtech makes such beautiful bows!

No way dude, uh uh. I am not going to open that dark door. Just leave me be.. [8D]
