Hey guys, new to Archery Talk but looking for recommendations for a new bow. I currently have a '97 High Country Max Force that was given to me as my first bow a few years ago and looking to retire it (this is also the only bow I've shot). I'm 6'4, 300 lbs, 31" draw. I was thinking about an Elite Energy 35, Elite Tempo, or Athens Ridge 34, but since i haven't shot any of these, i was wondering what everyone's thoughts were. If there are any other bows that y'all would recommend, i have ears to listen. Mainly just looking for a smooth draw and quiet, but able to reach my draw length. Thanks for any input.

I will say that the Ridge 34 is a sweet shooter and a wonderful draw cycle. One of the better all around bows in the business if you ask me. I would go and shoot them all though.

The Ridge34 is a great bow. Very smooth consistant draw all the way back to the solid wall. No big dump into the valley, just a consistant pull. Nice valley, not jumpy or going to take off if you creep. The grip is very slim and easily repeatable. Fit and finish is very very nice. I have one in 30.5 draw. It's my favorite overall bow. Any questions or anything I can help with let me know.

I think there's a couple Athens Ambassadors near Nashville. Did you email Athens to see if they could help find someone close? I'm an ambassador with a Ridge 34, but I live in Michigan.
