Stalker22: We all bring a little predjudice to bear whether its pickup trucks or bows. One thing that quality products have in common is that they are built to a tolerance that will insure that they will last longer than something that isn' t put together as well. Generally speaking parts that fit together properly don' t rattle as much and make far less noise as a result. There may be exceptions but accuracy of something like a bow is going to be better when there is a whole lot less shaking going on. My personal pick for the tightest quality control and least amount of noise produced by a bow is the Newberry bow produced in Chattanooga Tennessee. The list price for Newberry bows is $550. I' ve had Browning, Bear, Jennings, Mathews, Martin. and Hoyt bows, and I' ve paid more and gotten less bow in return. Just my opinion. Now back to the Hoyt vs. Mathews " tastes great!-less filling!" debate. Good luck hunting!

DUHUNT (MR. ALL CAPS!) JUST KNOWS THAT MATHEWS BOWS ARE THE BEST, EVEN THOUGH HE HAS NEVER OWNED ONE? AMAZING!

I could also say that Chevy Trucks create a partial vacuum with thier pistons.[&:]

I have never owned one though, so my feelings would be both biased and unsubstantiated.

I for one, have a Bowtech bow that shoots much more consistently and accurately (for me), as well as being faster than the 2 Mathews bows that I used to own.

I have a few bows that I have been playing with this year to basically see which one of them will be my #1 backup to the Bowtech. I shoot them for a while, then shoot the Bowtech and wonder why I am worrying about shooting something else.

MATHEWS HANDS DOWN!!!!!

NO ONE MAKES A BETTER BOW!!!!!
IF YOU DON' T THINK SO TEST THEM, LOOK AT RESEARCH DONE..
THE NEW HOYT CAM AND A HALF IS JUNK.... PSE IS FOLLOWING SUIT AS WELL.
I was at a loss for words when I read your post. I am glad the board finally has the final word on what the best bow is. Since you seem to be such an informed insider kind of guy would you please tell me what makes Hoyt cam 1/2 and PSE junk. You know this " research" you speak of???? You are comparing a relatively inexpensive PSE bow and a hoyt bow you most likely have never shot to a bow you don' t even own. I will not argue the fact that Mathews makes a fine bow (as do most major bow manufactures) but I want to know what qualifies you to say it is the best. It is people like you that only wants conflict. You could have merely said Mathews, stated why you like the Mathews (that you don' t even own)and left it at that. But you had to bash other peoples bows. I shoot the cam 1/2 and absolutely love it. I shot a bunch of the new 03 bows when I bought mine and the cam 1/2 suited me very well. The bare bow was 400.00 for the magnaTec xt2000. That is a steal for its performance. You have no credibility as a poster on this forum to me now. Maybe next time you will " care" and think things out before you post such non sense

Maybe a lot is the indians vs the arrows. I just replaced my old PSE carrol intruder with a new PSE carrera and am getting it ready for its second elk hunt. It cost me $350 new plus $150 for my shop to rig it. Shoots quiet and fast and the 20 yard pin works to 30 yards. It kills animals and I like it. Is it the best? Maybe not but it does the same job a matthews will do and if I like it its the best bow for me. Good hunting.
