Did you just go from Mathews to Mathews or did you shoot other bows before buying? I'm curious if any of the elite bows compare to the triax?

I went in with an open mind and shot every bow they had, including Elites. The Triax was a head and shoulders standout, so I ended up with another Matthews.

2010 Hoyt turbohawk. Bought it rigged out from a buddy 2 years ago

Before that was a 2003-ish Reflex Excursion. That thing was a tack driver and killed a lot of critters.
