    Switchback, Switchback XT, vs Helium or Creed

    I am new to bow hunting and have heard good things on the Switchback and XT, I did a search on Archery talk and found discussions on how nice these Switchbacks are but the comments were all from 2009. The comments were great but I was wondering how these 2 bows compare to the newer bows,
    Helium and Creed. Your comments if you have shot both/all are appreciated. Thanks

    In what ways can it not compete? Please enlighten me. Speed is not the only way to measure a bow. I have shot them all and Mathews still has not topped the Switchback models. They have developed faster bows but not better. Those bows are accurate and bomb proof. And for a hunting bow, there is nothing better.

    I will agree that the z7E is a great little bow and I just ordered a new ZXT myself. But people are not complaining on AT for Mathews to produce a new 28 inch bow. They want a 33 inch Switchback with a touch more speed. And Mathews has not produced it. They just can't top those Switchback models.

    Still have my 2006 SBXT. Everything about it is better than my Z7 except for the speed.

    I like my extreme better than the switchback XT .. I guess it's a personal decesion.. I just wish they would change the waffle riser..

    I've got a SBXT and a Z7. I don't find them all that different, but I've only had the z7 a couple months. To me, the z7 feels a little 'smoother' in the draw, but I'm still more comfortable and more accurate yet with the SBXT at this time.
