Best Single cam? Mathews all the way. Take your pick, I'm a Creed fan, the Heli-M is wicked skinny, but it doesn't do anything special for me. The old Z7 is still hard to beat.

But I will say this, I don't believe that the 'best single cam' bow is anywhere near the 'best bow on the market'. Bowtech's top my list, followed by the Mathews Monsters, especially the Chill, Hoyt Cam & 1/2...

I think you're painting yourself into a corner by knocking all of these great bows off of your list, so it begs the question:

Why are you ONLY looking at single cam bows?

Backing up a step: Do they even still make the Marquis?

I used to shoot compound , but now shoot trad and am looking at getting back with a compound to teach and train with my boys who are getting a compound for Christmas this year. I suppose I was thinking a Single cam has less chance of Cam timing problems and easier to draw. I am after a high end Bow for around $500, I don't mind buying secondhand and remember my 62# Marquis being a sweet shooting/quiet bow, come to think of it so was my 65# PSE X-Force . I've owned a few bows, but My Marquis stands out as being the one I wish I'd kept. .

In short... Nope!!!!. They stopped around 2009.

Just picked up Mathews Creed after shooting the Z7 for seveal years and the Switchback XT prior to that... at the time, i feel each was the best single cam on the market... the Creed is a pleasure to shoot.
