For me it is! I bought my razortec abit over a month ago and it shoots great! I used to shoot my Parker 31 for 3-D and allthough Im no pro at 3-D, I can hold my own and a short axle to axle bow works fine for me! I was shooting a 2002 cybertec, and I have to say that the razortec is(for me) a more accurate bow than the cybertec was!

bloodtrail you ought ta be the hoyt spokeperson on the Razortec, i'm real happy for ya on your new bow, you really seem to like it and there is nothing better than having a bow you really like. it makes everything that much fun. i've shot the razortec and i have to say that it sure holds and aims like a longer axle to axle bow. i wouldn't be afraid myself to shoot 3d with a razortec. the only reason i haven't bought one yet is because i am waiting for the new bowtechs and i'll make my decision then, i'm a die hard Hoyt man but my next bow is for strictly hunting and just thought i'd check out the competition. i've shot mostly hoyts for the last couple years and haven't even looked at other companies so thought it would be a great test for the new hoyts.....

Yes, I definitely think it would make a fine 3D bow even though it doesn't have the "best specs" for that particular application. I posted my experiences with the bow in a thread over on the Equipment review forum of this site if you would care to read it.

Is there a big difference in the accuracy of the different lines of hoyt bows? I was thinking of buying a magnatec or the sierratec. I shot the hoyt and fell in love with it. I was going to buy a mathews but the hoyt bow is much more quiet.

Yes and No. If we go by what is "on paper" then you will see a big difference in the axle to axle length, brace heights and riser geometry among their bows. All three play a huge part in any given bow's level of inherent accuracy. Assuming all else is equal, the longest axle to axle length, highest brace height, least reflexed(or straight/deflex) risered bow that Hoyt produces will be the most inherently accurate for the average shooter. Ofcourse, there are other factors that come into play, such as draw length but that is another story....

pup, I shot a Razortec and was very impressed by it. I only got to shoot a blind bale at close range, but the bow shot awsome as far as noise and vibration/recoil goes. A Copper John Deadnuts Pro is a great fixed pin sight. You can get .029" or .019" pins. I prefer the smaller pins.

Part of the formula for determing the correct bow for you is your draw length. Shorter ATA for shorter draw lengths and longer ATA for longer draw lengths. This is NOT to say that archers can't go against this criteria; but, the average archer will definitely see differences.
