They are very well made bows. I had one with two different poundage limbs. I used the lighter limbs for warming up early in the spring, then would change to the 69 pound limbs about a month before season.
I’d like to have that bow back again. It was a dandy
Hoyt DoubleXL for us normal orangutans. 70lb 32" 310 FPS. Power stroke is smooth and very quiet bow. Shooting BE Rampage pro with ol reliable fixed 100 gr Thunderhead which I have shot since offered in 80s.
I was one of those guys that bought a new Hoyt every two - three years. I have owned several, but when looking back, I don't really believe the technology has really progressed much over the last 10 or so years. I think they have gotten lighter and have less vibrations but other than that, there is not much better at killing or such.
Looking back, I really liked the hoyt ultratec. That was a break through bow that was very forgiving. I let two guys who were new to archery, use that bow and they turned into really great archers. I did like my spyder 34, that was a great bow and now I have been shooting a hyper force. It is okay, but I am thinking of breaking ranks for that new Mathews. I never thought I would jump ship, but wow. But in the end, it is all about the indian and not the bow.
