Do i need to upgrade

I have a 2009 or 2010 mathews Drenalin. Seems to be a good shooting bow. I dont know much on the tech side of equipment so im wondering if new bows are that much faster, smoother, or easier to tune/shoot.

I guess what im asking is ..." Is my drenalin outdated?"

Appreciate any feedback. Thanx in advace

The Drenalin was the most sought after Mathews that year. I still have the most sought after PSE for 2008 and will never part with my XForce HF6. Not parting with it doesn't mean I don't have other bows. If you think it's time to go test drive some new rides to relieve the Drenaline of some future miles, have at it. There are some really nice bows on the market that may just tickle your fancy.

Some people change out bows every year just because they like change. If your fine and happy with the Drenaline, stick with it. Go to a Pro Shop and shoot some newer models, let your hands tell you what you should do.

Thx for the Feedback guys. But I guess I wasn't that clear with what I was really looking for. I guess Technologically speaking, is the Drenalin still in the ballpark or is it a dinosaur ?

You can kill with a 90 model bow. It's up to you if you wanna gain speed and comfort. Some bows are just horrible for me to shoot and the same bow is a joy for others.

My '07 Drenalin hangs with my '13 Creed just fine. I use both.....the Creed with heavier arrows (475 gr) for bears, elk, moose, etc. I still shoot light arrows (375) in the Drenalin. Both are accurate, but the Creed is noisier. FYI, my '11 Hoyt Carbon Element hangs on the wall and hasn't been shot in over a year, as I find it less accurate than the Mathews bows.
