Default Best model?

I have a Mathews Outback, but am thinking about getting another Mathews. I would prefer to go the used route from a cost standpoint. Other Mathews shooters, what is your favorite model? Anyone interested in selling a bow in good shape?

Whats wrong with the outback? If you are looking primarily at a hunting bow, and like the features of the outback, id look for a switchback, or a DXT. Both of those would make for really nice hunting bows. Any of the newer ones really...

Yah I agree what is wrong with the outback, if you are looking for a used Mathews it would be a switchback or switchback xt a drenalin or a slighltly used dxt. I always liked the outback.

Nothing is "wrong with it", i would just like to get another...may be taking someone with me next year who doesnt have a bow and definitely wont be able to buy one. So, I thought i may as well look for a bit of an upgrade. I like it as well...short ATA is so convenient. What about the LX?

The LX was a sweet bow as well... Just all depends on how much u wanna spend They are all great for hunting really, just pic your favorite.

I thought id chime in... I am looking into learning how to and hunt with a compound. It seems to me that everyone loves Mathews, but they seem to be expensive here in Tx. I was looking at starting out with a
PSE Stinger. It seems to be in my price range. Whats the scoop on this bow???? Any suggestions???
