Any last thought on this from anyone would be greatly appriciated from all! and a big thanks to Robert and everyone else for the help and addvise.
I am the type of guy that would try every popular bow out there if I could, so i have owned a lot of bows in the past 2 years. The one I would buy again in a second is the destroyer 350. I sold it and got an elite judge......judge really didn't compare....went to a long ATA athens exceed that i shoot now....REALLY doesn't compare. I have never shot a 3800 but you already have the d350 I would really keep it, you will regret not. The 3800 could possibly be equal but i cannot believe for a second it can be better....not sure how a bow could really be better IMO, than the d350.
I have been shooting a DS-3800 since spring. I really know nothing about the 350. I've had a bunch of Martins and Ryteras as well as played with many others the last few years. I have a short 26" draw and the DS-3800 puts up excellent numbers with a short draw and the draw cycle is "smoother" than any "speed" bow I've put my hands on. The DS-3800's draw cycle feels more like the draw cycle of a target bow more than it does a jacked up speed bow. Of course the "feel" of a draw cycle is by definition subjective but everyone that has shot my bow comments that the draw cycle is better than any speed bow they've shot. I definitely wouldn't rate the appearance of the DS-3800 as high as many if not most of the new model bows. I would say it's "coolness" factor is fairly low. I'm more about performance than appearance. For example, I know I've never worn a set of matching camo hunting.
Darton Archery does have many "break through" patents. Research Rex Darlington. The hybrid cam system is generally if not literally considered a Darton design. I really think the cam system on the 3800 is the best at reducing cam lean. My biggest problem with Darton Archery is that there isn't a dealer within a 100 miles of me.
