Dan, Ive spent two years as a bow technician at Lancaster Archery Supply working with the some of the best bow techinicans in the world, bar none. I'm not saying I'm nearly as good or as knowledgeable as they are, but I know enough. If you've been in, I've probably worked on your stuff. I shot every bow under the sun as they came in, multiple times, some before you even knew they were available. In the past 5 years I have shot every bow from every major bow manufacturer at least once, and can make some pretty good comparisons. Im not trying to toot my own horn by any means, thats not what I'm here to do. However, I have been shooting the IBO World Championships for the past two years, and have placed top ten both times. I have enough hunting and shooting experience to make some criticisms. And as far as changing my name, I would if I could. I dont hate mathews, as I mentioned I used to shoot a Mathews, back when they made better bows. I have owned bows from all sorts of manufacturers, mathews, hoyt, bowtech, elite, and pse. Name means nothing. Look at the thread for best Mathews bow ever...I dont see the monster or reezen or any of the new ones mentioned much if at all. I certainly see alot of votes for swtichbacks, and MQs, and the smooth drawing well balanced good hunting bows of a few years ago. Totally different bows now. When I make a post about any bow, I'll tell you pros and cons, when it comes to my opinion of what a hunting bow should be. You obviously have your own, and I'm not saying its wrong. But before you make any assumptions about how "informed" I may be, please believe that I have taken the time to gather the knowledge I need to make those posts. I know mathews pays you big bucks to defend them and all, but don't take it so personally.
