I’ve been out and shot this years bows and have narrowed it down to 3. How does everyone choose? I’ve shot them all a few times and the hyper force and realm/realmx are all great shooters and around same price. How do u pick?

If you like them all about the same and the same price. I would look at the dealer if one offers better service or easier to deal with.

First thing I look at is draw, then how to tune it, finish, speed, looks and if I have to buy anything special to tune it ie... top hats, press adapters. I don’t worry as much about the shot as long as it goes off and doesn’t chatter my teeth. Most bows I have shot lately have been easy to shoot. And it depends on Bow, is it target, hunting or dual purpose.

I picked the REALMX because I liked shooting it and the ATA.

& I'm a Bowtech fan.

Good luck on your quest.

The ODB system is hard to beat for diversity of tuning.The Bowtechs have alot to offer both have a smooth draw on comfort with good speed. I ordered the X becuase the string angle fit me better. Shoot all three again and pick them apart.

If you tune your own bow then pick the Realm all day. Otherwise i choose bows by: draw cycle, ata, speed.

Really depends on your draw length, some cams feel better at different positions, To me its all about tuning and accuracy. The best shooting bow I have tried is a Prime Centergy Hybrid LD. Look at the Torque tests on YouTube on the Prime bows it really shows up in tuning and left/right group size for me.

No one can possibly help you. Your to that point there are very, very sutle differences only YOU can feel and see.
Good luck.

You are doing it right. Last year when I purchased, like you, I shot them all. Picked out my top 3, and shot more. At that point it’s all about how it feels in your hand. Good luck and enjoy your new bow.

Don't feel like you have to buy a 2018 model, there are 2017's that are just as good for less money. I have shot all the 2018's and still prefer my Xpedition Denali and Evolve 35. The RealmX is the only 2018 that I could see myself buying down the road.
