Earlier this summer I got a ďnew to meĒ 2017 Hoyt Defiant pro 34, came loaded with a React Pro sight, quiver, trophy taker drop away rest, stabilizer, 9 Decent new carbon arrows, Hoyt soft case, and a ďblockĒ broadhead/field point target for 750$. Shoots great and fits me better than my older Hoyt I had. You can find good deals if you keep at it! :tup:

Wow. That's a screaming deal. I know nothing about components but I've been told that even if I get a top of the line new bow I should be looking at replacing component pieces.

I looked at a lot of bow and last year at the top of my list came the Mathews Halon 32 and the Carbon Defiant. I wanted to like Prime, but I didnt like the letdown.

I'm still looking, but if you go to archerytalk and search their classifieds there are some great deals that come up.

Iíve been working in a pro shop for 8 years and the quietest bow Iíve ever heard is the Mathews Traverse.. I am a Hoyt shooter and have been for years but I gotta give credit where itís due. The only draw back is man itís heavy but Iíve been using carbon bows for so long it might just be me. I like the Traverse so much I got my first Mathews in over 10 years. If your looking for a great bow at a better price range shoot the Mission MXR and gets some limbsaver dampners for the limbs and for the money you canít beat it .

Dont over look athens. They will run with flagship bows of the big companies and a lower price.
