    Bowtech Experience v. Hoyt Faktor

    Looking for a new bow and have been a fan of bowtech the last 10 years. I'm not a speed junky, want a smooth draw, and something well balance so I don't need a long stabilizer. I'm looking at the Experience or the Faktor and unfortunately since I'm left handed cannot go to archery shop with both in lh to shoot and compare. Any of you have experience with these models?

    I shot the Experience this year and have been nothing but impressed so far. It has an amazingly smooth draw and has proven to be very accurate and forgiving. I haven't even looked at the Faktor so I wouldn't be able to give you any comparisons. To bad you are a south paw and may not be able to shoot both before you make a choice. IMO when you start talking about the different top of the line bows it all comes down to personal preference and comfort. Good luck.

    I wouldn't do anything before trying the new Bowtech RPM 360. I hear it is as fast as the insanity, but as smooth as the experience.

    I'll just say this if I had to choose between only those two bows I would go with the Experience all day. It is very smooth and shoots great. If you wanted to look at other bows I would check out elite archery. I believe that the Experience is still a better bow than the new rpm 360 because of the grip. The grip on the experience is a very nice wood grip that is small enough and feels great. The grip on the rpm 360 is a throwback to the destroyer's grip which is not even close to as nice as the experience's grip IMO. So if you had to choose get the experience.

    I don't shoot the experience, but just got a elite hunter. One heck of a bow, I shot a reezen before and this thing is way nicer to shoot, unbelievably smooth. Very Happy so far.

    +1 on the elite hunter. Nicest drawing and shooting bow I have ever shot. It is much more reasonable priced than the faktor or experience as well. Definitely will be my next bow.

    I have the faktor , and I have to say I love this bow draws smooth is super fast & quiet. I shot bowtech, & Mathews, the hoyt faktor felt the best to me. In my opinion its what feels best in your hand I don't think you could go wrong with any of the new bows!!

    I have not gotten a chance to shoot the Experience but I did shoot the Faktor a few weeks ago. In my opinion the Faktor shot well and felt well balanced. If it had been available last year I would have a Faktor in my bow case instead of my spyder 30.
