Mathews Switchback...Any Other Choices?

Hey all,

One of my buddies just got a new Switchback. He brought it down to let me and another friend check it out. It is a really nice bow. I couldn't shoot it because his poundage is too high for me, but my other buddy did shoot it a few times. Both of them talked about how smooth the bow was and how it felt very comfortable at full draw. They also raved about the performance. I don't think I heard a single negative thing about it the whole time he was there. He has hunted with MANY bows over the years and he said this bow is the best bow he has ever shot.

As you can imagine that new Mathews has a couple of us thinking about new bows. The problem is that not all of us can afford $800 or more for a new set up. That is why I am here asking questions, I would like to learn more about other bows that are available that would be similar to the Switchback in performance.

What other bows do you know of that are on the same performace level as the Switchback? What bows would you recommend to one of YOUR friends to check out?

Thanks for the help and your time.

I second the ROSS, the XT and the CR331 are VERY simillar in looks, specs, and quality (the ROSS might actually be a hair nicer!). You'll save a few hundred dollars by going to the Ross and it's just as nice, if not nicer than the Mathews. Keep in mind that this is coming from a guy that has owned 6 different Mathews--and I still have one.
