Your going to stir somthing up here asking that question. Hoyt is the best in my opinion. Brokenarrow if you really like mathews then go with the Z7, they had some problems with some of their older models with the string hitting the roller gaurd. and seamed to got it together with the new Z7.
I shoot a Mathews Q2 still and would say that it would be hard to go wrong shooting any of them bows but just like anything we all differ a little in our opions, so I'd try and find some where you can test shoot them all and then who knows it just may be the price that is the deciding factor for you.
First two bows I owned were PSEs. Great bows. All the major brands are top notch. It is like asking what is better a blond, brunette or redhead? Comes down to how it feels in your hand and how it looks to you.
If you're looking to buy a bow, I would go to a local archery shop and shoot the bows they have. Our shop in town has bows set up for this. Last bow I bought was not the bow I went to buy. I went to the shop and shot 5 different bows they had set-up. I bought a Mathews. That doesn't mean it's the best bow out there, just the bow I was most comfortable shooting. I've owned Bear, PSE, Parker, Hoyt and now Mathews. You need to find the bow you are most comfortable shooting regardless of name brand.
How many times have you wished for a better view across a clear cut, an agriculture field or down a powerline?
Ever wanted to get a little higher to try to get above a deer’s nose?
Have you ever wanted a taller stand because… well… just because?
Here is an example of a stand I made a few years ago and it has some very real advantages and a few disadvantages.
commanding view from the stand
able to accommodate two hunters, perfect for parent / child hunts
hunters are well...
