My previous two bows have been Mathews (Outback, Z7). I have shot new bows the past 3 years wanting to get a new one but just didn't find anything that was better than the Z7. Last year I flung a few arrows with the Halon and didn't care for it much. This year I tried the Halon and Halon 32 at the same time, each only a few arrows and still didn't seem to think they were much better if at all better than the Z7. Recently I was able to a good amount of time shooting the Halon and Halon 32 and began to really like them. I decided that if I could find used Halon for a good price I would pick one up since I wanted a new bow and needed a back up (Z7). Finally got a smoking deal on a used one fully set up just how I would do it myself and went for it. The more time I spend shooting it and fine tuning it to my liking, the more amazing I think it is compared to my Z7. I have yet to have a bow that balances as well, holds as steady, shoots as quite, or is as accurate. Even the shots I break off that feel like they were bad are spot on. AND the Stone Tactical looks killer!
Lesson I learned is that you really need to spend some time with a bow to see how you like it, flinging 6 arrows in a busy shop is not going to do it.
