Oooh, you had to go there.
I love those old hoyts, defiant, Supreme.

When hoyt dropped everything for cam and a half I was in disbelief.
The command cam was their best selling cam of all time. Pretty sure..

I agree with going in that direction but not DXing everything else!

When the world jumped on the solo cam band wagon I ordered the Darton Maverick.
Cps system was better as time has shown, the fore runner of cam and a half followed by binary.

Long live Darton and all Rex's inovations!

2012 bowtech cpxl that I own but I’m waiting on my Athens vista 35. Don’t like anything shorter than 35” although I did have an Arena 34 for a short while. I just like a longer ata. Short bows just don’t do it for me.

I have an elite Enkore which is a beautiful bow but I just can’t get along with it and the hardware is junk. (Screws strip easily). I just got an APA BLACK Mamba and I love this bow. You can tune yokes and even change strings without a bow press. Light weight and shoots great. Use with or without limb stops.

My all time favorite is a Mathews DXT, light weight and smooth! I have two of them but currently hunt with a Mathews VXR 31.5 but it's heavy and harsh draw in comparison but shoots great and faster at a lower poundage than the DXT.

Darton's are underrated and don't spend a big budget on advertising but Rex Darlington's designs are found on many big name bows.

Not much different however the draw is a little smoother on the HTR because it is longer in my opinion

Local shop is a Matthews dealer. If someone else was paying the bill I'd walk in there and let him talk me into whatever he thought I needed.

Since I'm the one footing the bill, I'm shooting my 20-year-old Bowtech.

Love my Bowtech Realm SS on comfort with clutch High grip. Mathews HTR gets a nod from me as well. If I like it so much why don’t I still own it? I could never get a consistent grip with it but that’s a me issue not a bow issue.
