    Sold my Mathews Switchback XT and would like to upgrade. Anybody have any suggestions? Not sure I am ready to shell out the money for the Halon but it is on the list.

    Haven’t even looked. Ive been too busy. Work is paying me to go to school so I have very little free time.

    I’m jumped ship from Hoyt to Mathews last year. Halon 32-6 has been great so far. If end up with the Halon or their new Triax I would get a quality set of stings. Zebra strings stretch ALOT.

    I got a Halon 32-6 today after shooting several. Amazing how much my accuracy improved with the proper draw length, bow tuned, and a little coaching.

    Triax couldn’t get a long enough draw. I did hold one to not get disowned by my friends

    Just bought 1965 Bear Kodiak Magnum, that is 57# and 52” tip to tip. Shot it every day since I got it and accuracy is amazing, as long my form is perfect. 30” arrows at 12.2gpi and a 225gr tip, will blow through bone and muscle.
