Archery equipment is like computers, buy today and a new and better version comes out before you get home. Prices are sky rocketing. Almost all the stuff in the last couple of years will be plenty good for hunting. Like most have said, buy what you can afford and like. I see you got the carbon Matrix. It should serve you well. Looks like a good deal on a good bow. Old age crept up on me and I now shoot a crossbow. Man they have gone through the roof price wise. Spending a grand on a x-bow is easy these days. Mine is a several year old Excalibur and cost me about $350 but kills deer dead so its all I'll ever need.

Stay away from negative people, they have a problem for every solution.

I have never bought a current model bow. I buy a last years model on Ebay and save a bunch. Any bow made in the last 10 years is going to be pretty much the same, the technology improvement in bows has slowed down. I am shooing a 2014 elite energy, I am sure it will last me another 10 years or so.

I was in the same boat as you about 10 years ago. I had been shooting a old 1990's browning mirage. I went to bass pro and shot about 10 different bows low end to high end. Ended up with their house brand red head kryptic which at the time was a rebranded diamond black ice. Unless something breaks that cant be fixed I'll bee shooting this one for quite a long time

Check out the Mission Bows...also made by Matthew's and much more affordable.The Re-sale value on a used Bow is terrible...they upgrade them so fast each year that the value drops drastically unlike a good Rifle that's been taken care of for years!

Also check around on prices and see where You can get the best deal on the price!
