I have been shooting a bow for a couple of months now and have gotten pretty darn good. I shoot an old Hoyt Fastflite right now and looking to upgrade because it weighs nearly 6 pounds. I was thinking about another Hoyt. What do you guys think?

I always recommend shooting different bows and different brands. Most the big name manufacturers make a good bow and for me, it is all about feel and consistency. I am not a speed freak and prefer a smooth action and release. Good luck and let us know what you decide up

Every shooter is different, all bows are different you have to match shooter to bow.

You may be able to find a used bow that is only a couple of years old for considerably less money than a new one.

If you want light and quick go with PSE or Bear.. light/quiet Diamond... heavy/overpriced Matthews peep New Hoyts fall right in the same category imo.

Yeah I might settle with a cheaper used bow from one of the big brands. I definitely wanna get some shots fired first though!

Good advice, try as many options as you can. Other things to consider are recoil and noise. Used bows can be a good option and last years flagship bow from a big name can come at a huge discount, you just have to make sure that it is in good shape. I have shot Bowtech bows for the last several years and have been more than satisfied, but a bow is like a rifle, one mans trash is another mans treasure.
Good luck
