I may be in the minority here...but I purchased a G5 Quest this year and I love it!! Extremely quiet, and shoot 325 fps IBO!! I have absolutely no complaints whatsoever with this bow!

I don't plan on getting rid of my 2007 Mathews Drenalin anytime soon. It's going to take some pretty crazy advancements to justify the cost of a new rig over what I currently have.

It's a great bow, you really don't need too. I just gave mine to my buddy because he wanted to upgrade and I really liked the Heli-m so I went after that. The way I figured, if he is shooting a better bow than he was (It was pretty old) then thats hopefully less blood trailing for all of us!

I said in the beginning ive always been a mathews faithful before this. The speed, size, weight: stats dont lie, this bow has it all. Not dogging any other bow because like i said i loved my mathews and my hoyt but considering the assassin was $640 w/ accesories (which i obviously replaced) was worthy of why it was the best selling bow of 2011. Whatever bow you like, shoot it i just suprisingly prefer my bt over my mathews z7.

Bowtech copies Mathews? This is the funniest joke i've heard in a while. Mathews solo cam! until Bowtech perfected the dual cam then its the Monster made by Mathews Solo Cam that is not a Solo cam and not a very good dual cam either. But all they have to do it make it look cool, give it an apealing name, say it shoots 25000000 fps IBO speed, and price it at $999 bare bow and people will buy it. Give me a break man Mathews makes great bows for a certain type of bow hunter, but don't accuse the company making bows for a completely different type of bow hunter of copying Mathews stuff. Mathews makes great bows, they are light, smooth drawing, and last a long time. Bowtechs, and recently PSE is making bows geared toward the younger generation of bow hunters. The bowhunters that shoot year round, like the solid wall that both are now known for and want nothing other that speed and silence from their bow. Mathews lately has been trying to capture part of the younger market with the Monster and Helim... They failed.

I have the Elite Answer, and it is a nice, quite, fast bow. And it also has better let-off than my mathews bow I just sold. It was supposed to be an 80% let-off bow, but didn't come close to the Elite let-off.

I don't have any experience with either bow, but would like to toss this in. It's possible both bows had nearly the same letoff but just didn't feel like it due to a different cam or module shape.

One bow might feel harsher due to holding it's peak weight longer and thus will produce more speed whereas a smoother bow might peak the same, but roll over easier due to a less aggressive cam/module configuration.

I've found that to compare one bow against the other it's better to set them both up for the same speed instead of the same poundage. Then see how they feel. Sometimes the harsher cammed bow will produce the same performance at considerably less draw weight and therefore not feel nearly as harsh.

It really doesn't matter much. You still have to choose the bow you like better.
