I was out shooting with my neighbor tonight. He just bought a new Bear Instinct and I got to shoot it. I was amazed, it is one sweet bow. I shoot a Mathews Switchback XT and I put it right up there with it. It was very smooth, light and quiet. Anyone looking for a new bow but not willing to part with $700 bones should check the Instinct out. I think if I would have shot it before I bought my Switchback XT I would have one.
