I think I paid close to $500 this year on various raffles and hadn't won a thing. 'Bout time it paid off. I was thinking of selling it, but maybe I'll set it up and tinker with it. I've never been much of a Hoyt fan after some experience with the Ultratec and Trykon, maybe this one will win me over.
AWESOME SCORE!! I have a 07 38 PRO, its target black and its my indoor/3D bow. Im assuming you got a camo model right? What cams on it? What experience did you have with your other hoyts that made you not like them? Ultratec is considered one of the best bows hoyt has ever made by alot of hoyt users, I have a Ultratec also
dwag, This is the same bow but the camo model. It has the Cam & 1/2. First of all I shoot low wrist and I never really liked the Tec Riser. Two of my buddies have had the Ultratec. I've shot it a bunch. It held nice but was just not as smooth and as shock free as my Mathews. It also has a shorter valley which I had a hard time with unless I was really focusing on hard back tension. In both those cases those guys went to Mathews bows (Switchback and Drenalin LD) and never looked back. One of my buddies said it was like going from a 69 Mustang to a brand new Lexus. Their shooting significantly improved too. I always had a tougher time tuning the Ultratec and it seemed to require more regular tinkering to keep in tune. I know it was known as a forgiving bow but I found my Switchback so much more forgiving that I found that almost laughable. I'm not being a Mathews fanboy, I'm just stating what happened in my experience. I also shot the Trykon many times as my shop pretty much had a fire sale on them. I wanted to like that bow. Way too much hand shock for my liking and the thing was super squirrelly in my hand. Take all this with a grain of salt though, it's just my limited experience with them. I know Hoyts have their loyal fans, and for good reason I'm sure. I just never felt all that comfortable with one, at least not when comparing them to the Mathews that I've shot, especially the Switchback. I'm married to mine.
I suppose I could set this bow up to be my target rig and 3d rig, but to me all that stuff is just practice for hunting and I like to shoot the same bow I hunt with.
60# er that would prolly appeal to someone wanting it for a 3D rig for sure, I know what you mean about how smooth the mathews are, had a XT that i bought and sold to a buddy cuz the DL wasnt for me and i didnt want to buy another but i bought it specifically to sell to him if he wanted it. Well i started shooting it before he got his hands on it and almost flaked on him but i sold it to him since he wanted a new bow and liked it alot too. Look foreward to meeting ya soon.
I did exactly what you did also, got my buddy into archery, he was a bird hunter but this year hell be out in D17 and A31 slinging some arrows and if nothing with the bow we got the general gun in D17 that he can try to fling some lead at a mullie. Im getting more and more excited with going thru all the inventory at SW LOL Getting to open all the stuff out and put on shelves and racks is kinda cool but its kinda a tease too!!
