i ll either trade it or sell it i really like my Trykon its the 75Th edtion model and is one of the quietest bows i ever shot. I shot the Defiant this past fall and it was really nice,it just sat in my hand after shot really nice bow. The only thing thats worrying me is the brace height on these new bows. I would prefer a 6 3/4 min or 7 so im not sure what i should get. I shoot 62lbs but was amazed with the Defiant on how much smoother it was and i think i could probably shoot it at 65lb with no problem.

Have had one ordered now going on 5 weeks. Hopefully should be here soon. Each year you wonder how they can improve them but Hoyt managed to go above and beyond with the RX1. Very smooth draw cycle and a solid back wall. Once I shot it there was no going back.

Shot the carbon RX1 Ultra. Been shooting the Nitrum 34 for the last few years with no complaints, nice bow and I shoot it well. No intent on buying a new bow because you always think, how much can they really improve them? This year Hoyt knocked it out of the park. Smooth draw cycle and valley with a solid back wall that doesn't feel like it wants to jump out your hand.

Whats your opinion on these short brace heights on these new bows,thats the only thing that scares me about dropping that $ on one. The guy at the shop told me its not like it use to be with new bows.and i seen that Pete Shepley guy state the same thing about that subject on PSEs

I'm kinda afraid to check one out, to be honest. I like my 2016 Defiant a lot.....I'm curious how the REDWRX compares, but then I'd have to sell my 2009 Bowtech Captain, which honestly is a better bow than what I'd get for it would be worth to me, if that makes sense.

I'm curious about the WRX but not sure I should shoot/handle one, lol.

Well i went to the outdoor show and shot the WRX turbo and the ultra and they are nice bows for sure but the new Elite which i shot also was one nice bow maybe the best bow i ever shot. What i liked about the Ritual was they changed the grip which felt really good in my hand and its a very quiet bow and it hard to explain but it felt different when you released the shot like nothing was there which i liked. I also liked the longer brace height on this bow and when you consider the price difference by the time you get all the accessories Im leaning toward getting this bow. I shot it at 65 lb which i had no trouble with but i don t by a new bow every other yr and will keep it for at least 10 to 12 yrs so im leaning toward a 60 lb pull to compensate for age so i guess i ll have to figure it out or i might just get it at 65 and wing it if i have problems later and see whats out there when that time comes,either way if your in the market for a new bow i suggest shooting this bow you may like it.
