I shot the X-Force and the Parker Hornet but the Matthews was just so smooth and quite. I really liked my Phoenix but come to find out when I bought it used the draw length was to long for me so I wasnt very arccuate with it.

I was shooting a three person techno hunt league when the guy beside me parkers force multiplier blow up at full draw he was pulling 80 pounds at the time and the feathers off that arrow cut a small line across my  face it hit the 1inch doll pin my Mathews was hanging on and snapped it off bounce off the wall and came back between us with out nobody getting really hurt.The bow was 6 months old and blew up once more after they fixed.

Dang. 80 # draw has a lot of stored energy. I'd be scared of such a powerful bow, also...especialy when made by a lower-end co.

the fiber from the limbs peep nocks ,string leeches ect hitting you all over plus the percussion in your ears standing about 2 foot from it.Made me turn my head just enough that the feathers from the arrow cut a line across my face.Imagine what a blunt tip with 80 pounds behind it hitting you under your left eye would have done. That was the first time it blew 2 weeks later we where shooting a 3d course when it cut loose on the second target this time the bottom limb cut a path thru the top of his thigh giving him 16 stitches.parker fixed it and he sold it shortly after words.
