I was away from shooting for a few years and when I got back, I replaced my Bear bow with a Parker Stealth (similar to the mag). I have been shooting it for 3 years and I am getting ready to purchase a new bow for next years hunting season (2007). I have been looking into Bowtech’s Alligence, Bowtech’s Old Glory, Mathews Switchback or the Hoyt Trykon. I have shot my buddy's Hoyt, once Crackers tuned it up, and loved the feel and quietness of the bow. I have never felt something so smooth.

Does anyone have any advise on any of these bows?
a) Regarding forgiveness of some of these 33 & 34 inch bows
b) Suitability for white tail deer hunting

I want to move into something that reduces the gap between my sights, something that is going to be fast enough to shoot one pin.

You mention several good bows

Switchback has been a hot seller for quite a few years now. Its diffiantly a winner and good bow.

Bowtech Tribute is another bow you should take a look at.

Dont let those shorter axles bow scare you, they shoot great today. Go try and shoot some of those bows.

Bengal

Look at an '07 Martin Bengal. It's an incredible bow at around $399. You won't be sorry.

Split limb bows are quieter than solid limb bows , thats why you got that impresion from the hoyt , it was quieter . If you decide on a old glory and you shoot 28"s and 60 lbs , shoot me a pm , I have one for sale , will be in the elk woods for a week of so , so it may be awhile for a reply .

Bf took 10 years to finally get a new one. he shot 4 different ones before he fell in love with the XT. Loves everything about it except the serving wear.. Which , by the way, Mathews has already sent our pro shop a new string to replace his after only 100 shots.
