    You do realize that the bow has a limb stop and you can't get anymore of a solid wall than that? So you pretty much just made this comment up without even shooting the bow first. Good job.

    I prefer the looks of the Knight..I like the looks of the Hoyt too. .but not as much. .

    I won't buy either. .If I buy a new one. .it will be the Carbon Matrix and have a set of spirals put on it..If I buy a used one. .it will be a D340 and send it off to be kolorfusioned...If I win the Power Ball...I'll buy 1 of everything. ...

    ^^^That's funny...just because one chooses the Spyder over the Knight makes them a Fanboy??...guess you must be a Bowtech Fanboy??

    I won't vote because I have not shot the Hoyt, however I am very impressed with the Knight which excites me to see if Bowtech puts the carbon riser on their upcoming Flagship bow. That being said my next bow will probably be another High Country....or maybe a New Breed.

    I like that the Spyder has 3 different options for shooters to choose from (30,34,Turbo). Chances are that one of those three would be a great fit for someone. I've been wanting to try a Spyder 34 for some time.

    Not that that's bad.
    Agreed but I still like the Knight better. I shoot the knight great. It holds just fine for a light bow and the back wall is awesome. Im liking the single thin type limbs as well

    Well this could be taken several ways. It could just mean the other Bowtechs are just flat out awesome shooters. Well for me the Knight has shot great and Im way more accurate with it than I was with the Insanity or Assassin. I put it about equal with the Invasion for me. Anyone who says this bow doesnt have a solid back wall is just plain crazy. Its as solid as they come

    "Semantics"......

    In 2010-2012, every Hoyt sponsored hunter (Michael Waddell, Travis "T-Bone" Turner, etc) used the carbon bows, now, some are using the Element/Matrix G3's, while others are paid to use the Spyders.

    I have a 2010 Carbon Matrix, 2011 Carbon Element (sold), 2012 Carbon Element RKT, 2011 CRX-32, and a 2013 Spyder 30.

    I prefer "shooting" the carbon bows (grip feels better to me), but I prefer hunting with the aluminum bows (I can bang them guilt free through the brush).

    I believe the Carbon Bows appeal to a different audience than the aluminum, but other than the riser, the Element is the Same as the Spyder.

    No offense but I really get tired of these polls and threads. Shoot them both and go with what you like. I'd suggest shooting more than two bows anyway, and from various companies. I guess I'm a fanboy hater.

    I own the carbon knight and it is by far the best bow I have ever shot, however, I have not had the chance to shoot the spyder. And after shooting the knight a few hundred times, I have no need to shoot anything else
