Default Any Thoughts/Experience on G5 Prime's Bows

Been shooting a Hoyt Maxxis 31 for 2 seasons, and have never been in love with it. It has a few little quirks that I just can't get past.

My local dealer just picked up Prime, and I was wondering if anybody shoots their bows and would care to offer some thoughts. The company seems like they really stand behind their product and offer quite a considerable customer service package.

Thanks in advance,
Natty

Lots of good bows on the market but I stick with old time companies with dealers all over. I have shot PSE since 1975. I just ordered a new revenge today after shooting it in a 3-d yesterday.

That's good advice pope. There is something to be said about tried and true companies that have withstood the test of time.

Best deal on a great bow. 60 lb. draw, 310 fps. Throw away the sight and rest and still a deal.

I got the the ATA show each year and got a chance to test out many of the new bows. The Prime was the 2nd favorite one I shot up there. Love the draw cycle and overall feel! I personally liked the Elite Answer the best, just an amazing bow. Elite produces some extremely nice bows, their machining is the best on the market IMO. Interesting that with Hoyt/PSE/Bowtech at the show that G5 and Elite felt the best!

I've got a G5/quest primal (different bow than their prime's) and I'm very pleased with how it's built, and how it shoots.

I've shot both prime versions, and they're one of the best bow designs I've ever shot. I don't upgrade bows often, but if I was in the market, those cams would be on the very short list.

Thanks dhayse32 and J. Timber. Good input. These bows and the company have me intrigued. Might be worth a look.

Default I'm no expert

I'm no archery expert. I do feel it i important to buy a bow that is from a well etablished company for quality parts. They know their product will be tested so they make it well.

I also think it is important to have a shop nearby. When you need parts and have to have somebody install upgrades it is convenient to be able to get to them quickly. They can adust things for you as well.
