    alot of opinions but mine is best SBXT the worst LX.
    Every morning in Africa, a gazelle wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the fastest lion or it will be killed. Every morning a lion wakes up. It knows it must outrun the slowest gazelle or it will starve to death. It doesn’t matter whether you are a lion or a gazelle: when the sun comes up, you’d better be running.

    I would say the SwitchbackXT. They haven't made a bow since that was better, in my opinion. The worst? Not sure....the only Mathews that I shot that I really didn't like was the Reezen 6.5 I think.
    Potential is interesting, performance is everything.

    To many to name they are all great shooters, MQ1 started it and went up from there. The monster series are the bomb and new z7s are really nice shooters.

    Worst....Thought the mini versions of the bigger bows where always kinda weak.

    Best is very debatable,depending on purpose and individual shooter,but the worst,without going so far back that you get into a different "era"of bow design is undeniably the Reezen.Very harsh & humpy draw,ate up string suppressor rubber,bent cam axles and bent and twisted riser's occaisionaly.

    The Switchback and it's follower the Switchback XT was most likely the most popular.

    Best "target" bow: Conquest Pro

    Best "hunting" bow: Switchback


    Worst... Tie between the Icon & Ovation

    IMHO of course
