I shoot a UltraMag. I Bought it a couple months ago and have no complaints about it. I think it is more accurate than I am. And with stock string leeches and alpha shox I think it is pretty darn quite out of the box. These bows have almost all the same features as the bows costing more and that is why I bought it. Though some guys have to have the newest or the very top of the line to think they are worth a damn. But I don't think the more expensive hoyts have much more to offer except some ego boosting. So enjoy I know I am.

I am a huge advocate of the UltraMag, and I'll tell you why. If you compare numbers, speed, that sort of thing, the UltraMag puts out the same performance as a higher end bow. It has the exact same cams, the same riser design, limb design, everything. OK, sure, we don't have all the bells and whistles, but who needs whistles? We get the ribbed cast magnesium riser as opposed to machined aluminum, fast flight strings and cables as opposed to the .....oh......can't think of it...but I just put new cables on mine, cost me $27. If I would have the other ones, nearly $100. Ticks me off I can't think of the other cables....hmmm....I'll think of it...but look, this is the smoothest shooting, quietest bow. You will love it. For the money, you absolutely, positively can't beat it.

edit: As a sidenote, if you look at the UltraSport, you get 5 feet per second less IBO rating, and spend $80 less. The only difference in the two is the limbs. The Mag has carbon limbs, the sport has glass limbs. The only benefit, IMO, to carbon is that they are impervious to temperature change.

I picked my up a few months ago, $410. I went with the cheaper bow cause as everyone else is saying its still awesome, and it leaves extra cash for high quality rest and sites. I mounted an apa twister safari and a cobra sidewinder on it and i absolutely love this thing. Whenever i buy a new bow, probably 5 or more years down the road, it wouldn't surprise me if i just bought another ultra mag. smooth, quiet, fast, forgiving. you get everything hoyt has to offer for a lower cause cause of the magnesium riser that doesn't bother me at all. Why is the magnesium riser even cheaper? there has to be some downside to them.

Congratulations on the new bow. I hope that you are as pleased with your UltraMag as I am with mine.

I bought my UltraMag last summer and love it. I expect to be shooting this bow for quite some time. I can envision myself possibly upgrading sights or stabilizers or some other accessory over the next year or two, but I can't imagine wanting to part with this bow.

I have a local shop offering this bow as a package for $500. not a bad deal. I would buy it if my older hoyt (mt sport) gave me any reason to buy it. I have never been so content with a bow. sure it isn't the fastest, but it is one accurate little shooter. I just had a string and bus cables put on. went to a peep after 15 years of shooting. I couldn't ask anything more from this bow. my local pro shop owner said 'that is one quiet little bow' (it is one thing I strive for over almost everything else). I told him it sounded loud to me because it had no cat whiskers...he just looked at me a bit funny. I really do like the hoyt line though. I'd be hard pressed to go anywhere else.

I bought an UltraMag about 8+ months ago - shoots great. I bought my son (14) an UltraSport about 2 months ago and that one has been working good for him as well. We pushed a good amount of arrows through them and they still shoot like day one.

All things considered the UltraMag/Sport just seemed to make sense.
