Didnt say the Hoyt was quieter. I said they were close. Being dead in the hand. I didn’t see much of difference. But I really could care less about it being dead in the hand. Once that arrow is gone I don’t care. I want smooth draw cycle and to hold on target well. Those are my priorities when it comes to a bow. The Ventum 33 checked those boxes for me. I want to try the V3X 33 but the shop by me hasn’t gotten any. If it’s close to Ventum 33 smoothness I will probably buy one just for the cool accessories….lol. I really like that sight mount and quiver.It’s just a fact and pretty universally accepted that Matthews bow are the quietest and dead in the hand. Not sure why Hoyt guys really try to argue that fact. Hoyt has a better draw cycle you don’t see me arguing that point!
The V3 series did have that hump, I own a V3X 29 and it doesn’t have that hump, many reviews out on YouTube say the same thing that it’s much improved. I agree about has a better draw cycle no doubt about it.
