Im still hooked on my Matthews Ultra II. I've had it for 10 or 11 years. Have been looking at the new ones alot lately. Like those parallel limb designs. Bout time for new one.

Before my Ultra II, I had a Martin Jaguar for about 4 or 5 years.

Prior to that I had a Pearson Renegade with a 5 inch overdraw shooting a 24" 2216 aluminum arrow flying at a wopping 224 fps. My first deer with a bow was with that one.
Kept it for a couple of years

Firstly I had a Bear bow. Bought it in 1991ish

An '08 Reezen and my backup is a Q2 that I got in '00 or '01 not real sure. The Q2 is still the most comfortable bow I have ever shot, the Reezen is next in line. Tried most other new ones and bought a few through the years but always went back to the Q2 until the Reezen.

2007 Bear Instinct. No plans to purchase a new in the near future. 302 fps is fast enough to get the job done right now.

BINGO!
It is a good bow, and there is plenty to like about it, but it feels so different than anything else I have shot. After I shoot a quiver full, it feels good and shoots darts. But that could just be me

There are plenty of peeps here basically saying the same thing- "keeping the old bow because I don't want anything different!"
