    I have an E35, I really enjoy shooting it. I'm waiting for the CS34 and the CS Turbo to arrive and then we'll see which one stays.

    This is a text I got from a good buddy and I believe in his prior thoughts on bows he was spot on......

    Ok I shot the spyder 30 on 70lbs and the faktor 30 on 60lbs..the camo on the spyder was way better than last yr and the new riser looks awesome in person..the camo on the factor was decent...draw cycle on the spyder stacked right away then just fell Into the valley which is the biggest valley so far for hoyt...lots of let off..the shot is whats amazing no vibe no noise just dead feels weird its just different..now the faktor felt like a kids bow on 61lbs I could let half way down draw bwck to the wall and let it down again with no effort at all..I loved the z5s on 60lbs super smooth and easy...it did have a lil vibe and wasnt as quiet as the spyder..

    now to the e35 all I can say is this is elites best its insane how easy it is to draw on 70lbs and its freakin smoooooooth from the start until you hit the stops..dead quiet and shock free and it looks sweet..its hard to say anything bad about any of the new bows but im thinking that the spyder 34 will be traded in for a 65lb carbon 34..

    i have not shot the carbon bow but i have shot the 35 and it is so dead in the hand its not even funny and i have owned quit a few bows for my age and i was so impressed with it i really think its going to be a great all around bow with that said i do shoot a hoyt now and i am selling it to get a elite energy 35 but it does not have the speed that the carbon bow will have but i am willing to sacrifice it with the forgiveness of the elite energy hope this helps

    It is not a fair comparison....one bow is WAY more expensive than the other. Maybe comparing the Faktor vs the E35 would be more fair. I am a fan of the carbons but if I was thinking of getting an E35, I would compare it to the Faktor not the Carbon series.

    Sure it is. If money is not an issue and someone is going for the best feeling and shooting bow for their needs than any comparison is fair. If you are only comparing the most expensive bows than that is different, but I bet no one just compares the most expensive bows because they want to spend the most money. What else do you compare a carbon Hoyt against for fairness in your belief?

    For me they are really in a category all their own.
    It's all person preference to the individual but they are definitely unique and have a feel all their own.
    So if money wasn't an issue, the carbon would win hands down and not just because of weight
    IMO.

    You don't compare them to anything. There is nothing else like them so I can't see the comparison.

    If money is not an issue, you can compare any two products you choose. I will say this though: The Hoyt Carbon series is in a league/class of their own, there really isn't another product in the industry that compares, or that is on their level. If you can afford one, get one, you will not regret it. The Hoyt Carbons are the "Swarovski" of bows, everyone wants them, and the ones who don't have them will just rant and rave about how their "Vortex" is just as good and less money...But we all know the truth! ;-)

    It is a completely fair comparison if you really just wanted to buy whatever bow felt the best in your hands, reguardless if price or manufacturer. Otherwise people that had $1500 to spend on a bow, would automatically buy a Hoyt carbon bow... I haven't shot a carbon bow yet that I felt I had to have, maybe this year will be different though.

    I talked on the phone at length to him about these bows and was told the CS34 was absolutely dead at the shot but both bows were very close in feel and noise. The decision for most is if the Hoyt is $400 better so yes price does play a roll IMHO. For some it will be. For me, it's not.

    Sir calling them the Swarovski of bows is a bit above the analogy's worth! But they are indeed special.

    Bows are different because the shooter behind the bow is the true reasoning any bow becomes special or better. you can give the worst shooter in the world a carbon doesn't make hime the best....

    If their carbon was head and toes above the rest their G3 sales would not of been down 50+% last year when a killer aluminum bow called the Spdyer was out...

    Not fuding just putting this in to real perspective. They are great and I shot one yesterday, good they are but for me far from great for me. I can only Judge on the Spyder 30 not the the Turbo or 34.

    I did not spend tons of time and I was not impressed enough with them to really consider. They are very nice just to me not worth the $ upgrade yes I can afford one as I get cost most of the time. Very nice bows maybe when I shoot the Carbon Turbo

    You put Swarovskis in the hands of a blind man he probably wouldn't do as good as a guy with 20/20 vision and Bushnells either... So I would say the analogy is sound, if you don't want one then that is fine with me. Somebody has to shoot second best or ther wouldn't be one! LOL! ;-)

    I have E35 and Carbon Turbo on order .I never shot the turbo but I shot the Carbon 30 today .In my opinion the E 35 will be hard to beat if the Carbon turbo shoots like the carbon 30 .If I had to pick just one I would go with the E35 all day long

    I would like to hear something to back this up. I'm not in anyway biased towards any company or in this case riser material but this is a bold statement. Is it going to make my x count go up? Will my groups at 60yards be better? I'm just saying when will these bows be at the top of every podium? If we're talking about hunting I've been killing deer since the bear cub back in 1980 something. So what all the hype with the carbon?

I ment to quote the first post and it still didn't work I was referring to the remarks that its in a class of its own and nothing else compares

    I agree 100% why is it not a fair comparison. From what I am hearing the E35 draws nicer, bigger valley, harder wall, holds just as well, just as fast and dead in hand as the Hoyt bow costing $400-$500 more. Am I missing something here? Stop it fan boys, half you guys haven't even shot the E35! I bet Levi shot both

    I like both these bows, there both dead in the hand at shot . The carbon is lighter but the e35 holds better. Both are very close,But you can buy 2 e35's for the price of one carbon spyder.
    someone said Carbons are the "Swarovski" of bows. Tell the guy that dumped his money on a carbon element that is worth less than 1/2 of what he paid. My swarovski binos are worth more than I paid new.
    Of course the elite will have a better resale value because of the warranty.

    I really like the spyder But to put out 1500 on a bow that will be worth 600 in 2 years. The e35 will still bring 500 after 2 years.

    I like hoyt bows,But there hoyt marketing system is any bow after 2 years is old junk.

    The elite is the better buy
    lifetime warranty
    winner choice stings with warranty
    less depreciation and better resale.
