Default narrowed it down to two. Help Me decide.

I have 2 bows I'm looking at getting now, but can't decide which I like better. Give Me honest opinions about both, and Your pick. Thanks

1st- 2006Bowtech Equalizer $300 for bare bow

2nd- 2008 Hoyt Kobalt $300 for bare bow, or $350 for bow, s-coil stabilizer, nap quiktune rest, extreme three pin sight with light, true glo quicky quiver, and a wrist sling.

350 for the Hoyt. It just seems like a better deal. both bows are good though.

For short Draw archers the Equalizer has No equal. It is a proven performer. If your draw length fits within the Equalizer's range you honestly could do no better.

MeanV is right. The Equalizer is a dandy bow for shorter draw lengths and lighter poundages.

Both bows are great bows at great prices. IMHO, you would get much more than $50 worth of accessories with the $350 for the Hoyt and all the stuff.

I am a Hoyt guy but to be honest I am short and have a short draw length and I have heard nothing but good about the equalizer.

I would take the Equalizer. I'm shooting the same year and model. Very fast at 25.5" DL.
