.......to a Hoyt. After a coupe months I just couldn't get the consisentcy I felt that I had before. The new Mathews string was also giving me fits and doesn't seem to be much of an improvement over the Zebra. I also didn't realize just how much I had fallen in love with the Hoyt grip. The SB feels "beefy" in my hand and I felt as if I was inducing torque???
Anyway, the other day I went and shot the VTEC and feel in love with the bow. I brought her home and set her up. The next day I paper tuned the bow (in 2 SHOTS) and started some longer range group tuning. I will honestly say that I have NEVER shot any bow so accurately and consistently in my life! I have never been able to stack long range groups as well as I can now with this bow. I'm very impressed with it's performance and couldn't be happier.
Not only VA....what the heck??? I thought you were a Mathews sales rep there for a little while! Resigned did ya? I shot a Hoyt several years ago and loved mine also. I like changing up and trying new things, so I'm not one to follow the pack. Congrats on the 2 shot tune!
Cornfed, I love my Magnatek...It took me two shots to center a dime at 20 yards after the xtecs left the stage.(5 shots apiece). I think Hoyt has a good thing in the riser design and hope that they keep on inventing things to improve on it. Hate to lose arrows like that though!! lol!! Thanks for getting my interest up on the TR gear...another cost to save up for. Hey...Leaf River wants my camera back...short in some wiring to the flash mechanism..no big deal apparantly, great help from their people and will be really happy if it is returned completely repaired.

You have another Hoyt man here, Thayer, I also shoot the magnatech, and Love it I do want the V-tech though, I had a guy that said he wanted to buy mine but I haven't heard from him, But if I dont sell it then I stay with the Magna. Thats O.K. to. Corn, I totaly agree about the grip, When I bought mine 4 years ago, I picked up every bow and as soon as that Hoyt hit my hand,,,, I was sold.
Im sorry I misunderstood and thought you were using that hoyt in the picture as a target and was realy enjoying this post until I read on my bad[img]smileys/smiley1.gif[/img]
