Default New Bow

Looking for advise. I will be buying a new bow after the 1st of the year. $500-600 range bare. I know the only way to see what works for me is to go shoot and see what feels right, just wondering if I can speed up the process a bit and see what everyone is shooting. Right now I am shooting a Martin. I have had no problems with it and like it. It will go to a low enough DW and pull that I can give it to my wife she had decided she wants to start shooting. So that works out great for me I get a new one. So what's everyone shooting. I may be able to spend a little more but not much. Thanks in advance.

i've been a bear fan boy for awhile and they are definitely making some great bows now. i was toying around with the method and the motive 7 at field and stream, love them. all bear bows just seem to feel right to me.

Default hoyt charger

I recently just bought a hoyt charger, and it is a great bow. When I went to the sports shop I shot the bowtech assassin, pse revenge, and the hoyt charger. I stayed away from the pse because of the weight of the bow. the bowtech assassin, and the hoyt charger were the same weight and around the same speed. i went with the hoyt because of the smoother draw even though the bowtech was faster. i have had it for a couple of months now and it is sweet. I have a 25 inch draw at 60#. i am shooting 254 grain Easton bloodlines and am getting 50# of kinetic energy.
