Good luck with the Hoyt, I have a Protec and like it very much. I also have an Apex and it's my favorite bow, I would miss it alot if it was gone. Drtnshtr (my son) traded his Hoyt Proelite for a Maroon Apex, he was talking a trade with you there for awhile. He is really looking forward in getting the Apex. Again good luck with the Hoyt.

No offense........

You'll be back. Many whom of had a Mathews often try to move on to other things, but they all end up back with the good ol' Solo cam. Have fun keepin your hoyt in time. Been there done that. Good luck.

I see a couple of messages stating they could not keep their bows in tune.
That means at one time they were in tune, correct? No matter what brand of bow you shoot if you get the bow shooting bullet holes and grouping (fp's and bh's) isn't it the owners gig to keep it there with good maintenance and some loving care. Now, if you change rests, sights, new string I understand there is some work to do. Any bow that I have owned, once I get 'er right, it stayed there.

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. :mad: 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.

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 good:)

congrats on getting a shop shooter spot.
that can be a good thing.



hoyt makes a great bow and so does mathews
it really boils down to the shooter
have fun and help others.

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.

smart move on getting rid of that mathews some may not like what i just said but i have sold 3 switchbacks for buddys in the last month to get them a tribute . after they bought there switchbacks and then shot my tribute they were sick and sold them . hoyts are good bows that would be my second choice and if i was offered to be a store shooter i would go for it in a minute would be crazy not to . good shooting .

I disagree with you 100% there are major diffrences in diffrent bows. you have to be bllind not to see this or havent shot to many diffrent bows in your life .
