Smile Bow Help

Okay, so Im looking for a new bow because the one I have is okay, but was my paps and its not as good as the newer ones. The bow I have is a Darton. I just wanted to know what you guys use and how much you like it. Also if you would recommend it to anyone else.
Thank You

Just take a trip to your local archery shop and try out some new ones. I shoot a mathews switchback xt 2007 model and like it alot. I hear the new z7 extreme is an amazing bow but have not tried it yet. I believe it all comes down to personal preference though. All the modern bows are good it is just a matter of finding the one the trips your trigger. good luck

I say go get yourself a MATHEWS!! but thats just my opinion. Go shoot them all and see what fits you the best then decide from there. I have the MATHEWS Z7 Xtreme, and I am real happy with it, its a very nice shooting bow!!

I was thinking about a PSE because I heard they are really good, I wasnt even considering mathews. Thanks for the advice and good luck this season.

Check out Bear Archery. Their new bows are awesome. Don't know your budget but the Mauler, in my opinion, is one of the best values out there. Good stuff coming out of that company.

Being a Wisconsin Company, I gotta also throw in my approval of mathews. (not jus because they are based here) I shoot a Drenalin and love it. You can find a lot of 'new era' bows used for great deals. good luck
