I don't feel the need for a high dollar Mathews.
IMO, all new bows are high dollar.
I still shoot my (2001) Mathews SQ2. I also bought a used Mathews Switchback XT last year for a back up for $300!!!
So, you can get a high end bow for about the third of cost on a brand new one.
With that said, you should go shoot as many makes as possible and find the one that fits you. That's why I shoot a Mathews. It fit me so much more than the others.
