Just thought i would share my 2 cents after shooting a ton of new bows. Like many people, I am on the market for a new bow. I went and shot just about every bow i could get my hands on from 4 different archery shops. I will say i am not biased i have had a diamond and mission bows and even shoot a crossbow. I wanted to shoot everything to make sure i bought what fits me best. I have a short draw length at 27" and my shoulders are in bad shape. I shot Elite Synergy, Elite E32, Mathews No Cam HTR, Mathews Creed XS, Obsession Evolution, Xpedition Xcentric, Hoyt Nitrum, Hoyt Faktor, and the Hoyt Carbon Spyder. I heard the No Cam was the smoothest drawing bow on the market but honestly I thought the Creed XS was smoother.

I was most impressed with the Elite Synergy and Xpedition Xcentric. They both were really smooth drawing bows and yes they are two totally different style of bows. The Xpedition is super fast but doesnt feel like a speed bow. The 6" brace height turned me off at first but after I drew it I was amazed. The Elite Synergy had a backwall like ive never felt before. I literally felt like I had to "push" the bow forward to get it to move when in full draw. I have narrowed it down to 2... now im going to try and make the decision.

It's not an easy one to make. I still question mine when deciding between the E32 and the Faktor 30.


I work hard, drink a little and hunt when I can.

Passthru, did you like the E32 over the Synergy?? both were great bows and very shootable but i thought the back wall of the synergy set it over the top. I think its 90% letoff

Im in the same boat, especially @ $1000 price tag...I have shot so many I cant keep them separate in mind, Im leaning toward the Hoyt Nitrium turbo, which replaced the factor...I've shot bear for 25yrs and the new Bear bows have to many bad reviews with broken limbs..
