my first two bows i owned were matthews, and they are good bows. i then seen my first negative add in a hunting magazine. when hoyt came out with their cam and 1/2, matthews (matt mcphereson) seen $$$ leaving from hoyts sales of their solo-cam bows...(hoyt had to pay matthews to use their patented technology, solo-cam) so matthews came out with a center/two page add saying cam and 1/2 is a farse, and "flawed technology" basically called hoyt liars. and it reminded me of negative political adds. and i just could not stand negative slam that matthews attacked hoyt with. it put a sour taste in my mouth. id never seen one archery company attack another before that time. at least not publically. i also was offered a staff shooting position with hoyt from the pro-shop i shoot for. it was a good feeling for me to try hoyt, after what i had just observed. for my shooter bow i ordered a hoyt ultra-tec with 3000 limbs and i fell in love with it. since having that bow i have won two state championships. i have shot higher scores and have had no timing problems. when it is tuned and timed, it stays there until i change something. if i change poundage and adjust limb bolts it might come slightly out of time, but it is a simple fix and im back in business. so now im a hoyt shooter and proud of it. im trying to get another shooter bow with hoyt. dont be afraid of the change, have an open mind and give it(hoyt) a little time and you'll be fine. id go with the ultra-tec or pro-tec. not the trykon just yet. good luck. former matthews shooter.

Been there done that. Good luck.
I wish you luck.Change is good.It forces your ability forward.I am sure you are already an accomplished archer,but obviously you can't go wrong with either brand.It's all goodbowhunt_mathews said:Its official i sold my baby today:sad: and am goin to give ole Hoyt a try.......i dont know how its gonna go but i figured it was time to change.......wish me luck :darkbeer: :darkbeer:
maybee-r said:dont worry if they give you a sponser your good enough to shoot it. theres not ten cents worth of differance in any bow .its the guy pullin the trigger. set up helps to. i wont say a name but i have a friend who can shoot almost any bow and win. he has changed bows to prove it. even bought my old bow that i thought was jinxed and whiped my pants off at a local 3d. nope i dont like him any more the turkey.
