Default If you had to switch bows....

Let's say the company which produces thebow brand you are loyal to goes under, what would your "next" bow you bought? And name the bow you would not even consider as well.

I currently shoot a Mathews
A Hoyt would be next in line
A Bowtech would be my last choice.

LOL
I would choose Mathews First then Bowtech... Bottom of the list is there is many but of the big three it would no doubt be Hoyt but of the better known (non big 3) probably Martin..

Why do you ask, are you looking for a new bow?

No, just curious...I know there are alot of people on here that are "diehards" to the bow they have, so I was just curious to see what they would choose IF they had to.

I shoot a bowtech.

I really don't know what I'd go to next. Elite maybe. Who knows after that

I would not even consider a matthews. Not because I don;t think they are great bows, just not onesI want to shoot.

I'm not sure what I would end up with but I would not consider a Mathews until they change the grips.

I shoot a Parker Hornet and absolutely love it. It's a great bow all around for a great price. If I were to switch I would definitely go with a Mathews DXT. Shot one at the B'ham deer show and was close to falling in love with it. I've shot many other Mathews bows and loved every one of em. Never shot a Hoyt or Bowtech so I'm not sure what they're like. Heard great things about both. I'm pleased with my Hornet for now though.

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