Since 1980:
Browning Cobra, Browning X-Cellerator, PSE Nova, PSE Baby G, PSE Mach Flight 4, PSE Intruder, Mathews Q2, Mathews Switchback, Mathews Reezen (Q2 and Switchback both for sale in classifieds right now). I'm sure I've forgotten a couple.

Went to new bow shop here in Corsicana a week ago. Picked up 6-8 Mathews and PSE bows, picked out a few to shoot. Asked guy not to tell me which one he was handing me as I shot them.

Walked out with a Mathews Chill R. It and the Halon 32 felt identical, I simply liked the grip on the Chill a little better.

It's definitely an upgrade from the Reezen. I love shooting it. Thanks TT85 - you cost me a few bucks. smile

Shot a Mathews for prolly 10 years. Switched to an Elite last season, best move I ever made. Smoothest, most solid, forgiving bow I have ever shot. I shot almost every manufacturer available before choosing the Elite. There was just no comparison to me.

I shoot a Mission ballistic. I love this bow. I just do not think you have to spend 1k-2k on a bow to have a good hunting bow. my bow is plenty fast and quiet. I group just as good with it at all distances that I hunt, than my buddies with high end Bowtechs and Matthews. mine is rigged with a qad ultra rest hdx, Iq logic micro adjust sight, and a limbsaver s-coil stabilizer I bought at walmart. I have MAYBE $800 in my Bow. My son has the new Blackout s3 from BP, and loves it.

Picked up the Bear Crux at the end of last year for $399 as they stopped making this model. It's a great shooting little bow and I have been impressed!

I have been using a PSE Rogue X since 2009. It is a decent bow. I got a great deal on it and have not even pondered the thought of getting a new one. I am still have 3 of the GT XT Hunter 75/95 arrows that I bought the same time as the bow. It slings them with a 100 Gr slick Trick Mag at 294 FPS. Not the fastest, but it has been very deadly combo.

Started with a Mathews Switchback XT.

Now shoot a Bowtech Invasion.

If I was to start over, I would have zero brand loyalty. I would shoot them all, and see which I liked best.

Mathews Halon is less expensive than some of the other bows being thrown around in this thread. It's right on par with the majority of new bows in reality.

I shoot a Mathews Q2 it is an old bow and you could get a used one cheap. This is the best bow ever and after 8 bucks, 7 coyotes, 4 turkeys and countless pigs I will never get a new bow.
