Re: What bow brand do you shoot

I purchased a Martin Cheetah, late last summer and am very happy with its' performance. I was deciding between the Bengal and the Cheetah, which the only difference is the ATA lengths...and I chose the shorter 30" Cheetah. I've never owned this short of a bow and it has worked out very well.

Last fall I shot both of my deer in October. A 10 pt. buck with a 15" inside spread that weighed 230 lbs., on Columbus Day (Oct. 12th) and then on the last day of the month I shot a nice doe that was about 4 1/2 yrs. old and 180 lbs.

This bow will shoot 3" groups with field tips and broadheads, at 50 yards. I used a Razor Trick on the buck and a Fuse Banshee on the doe.
Yep...I like the bow...it works and it works well!

Good hunting, Bowhunter57

I used to shoot a HCA Iron Mace, but I traded it for a Weatherby Vangaurd .300 WBY MAG. I shoot a 2009 Mathews Monster. Kinda wished I had the Iron Mace back. IT was just a little smoother and faster than my Monster.

I shot Alpine for years, it helps that they make them right here in town. Then I made the mistake of picking up and shooting a Mathews Switchback. Best bow I have ever shot. Been shooting it for 4 years now and just can't find a reason to get a new one.

I'm using a Mathews DXT set @ 70lbs. Shooting Gold Tip 7595's with 100gr rage 2 & 3 blades. Only been shooting a bow for 1 year now & plan to get a whitetail & some hogs this year.

I just got a bowtech 82nd airborne and just got done setting it up. It should be a whole lot faster than my old bow and I was grouping about 4-5" at 50-60 yards. I'm pumped to see what this bow will do!

Re: What bow brand do you shoot

Still shooting the same MQ32 I bought in 2000. I hunt, shoot 3D and I've shot 300 league with it. Great bow and hangs in there with the guys toting their brand new equipment around to the 3D matches. There are a lot of great bows on the market but I don't see any need to replace it.

Re: What bow brand do you shoot

Have been through several bow brands after 30 + years of bow hunting. Last three have been Mathews. MQ2 then Switchback. Had a few extra dollars and bought the new Mathews Z7 this spring. Best bow I have ever shot, bar none.
