    The new pse full throttle is the fastest bow on the market right now. You can shoot at a lower weight and still have more ke down range. A friend did the math and I would be putting down more ke down range at 60 lbs. than my bow now at 72 lbs. the difference though is let off. Which I would be holding back the same amount of weight at full draw.

    I would look into the faktor 34 and carbon spyder 34 and spyder 34, all of them in the long draw settings to try. Pse source is a good one. The vendetta DC from pse and freak max/sp are good long draw bows. Bowtech cpxl would be a good bow to try. Elite energy 35 has been getting good reviews.

    So many good ones and that's the tip of the iceberg. I recommend trying as many as you can, also the ones mentioned, and see which ones you like. Let the bow pick you.

    I have a Hoyt Carbon Matrix and Elite Answer, both are great bows. I am not a speed freak when it comes to bows though.

    Best thing to do is go to a pro shop if there is one around you, I travel an hour to go for mine, and shoot bow after bow after bow. I would suggest making multiple visits to shoot and if they allow to shoot with different accessories to also do that. I did not do this cause I had a bow in my head that I wanted before ever shooting new ones for a few years and like the bow I got.

    I think you need to try a set up a time with the pro shop when they are usually slow so they can help you out as much as possible. The guy I went to was willing to stay open late and he helped me out a lot by letting me try almost anything I wanted that he had in store. I was very surprised at his friendliness and willingness to get me set up right.

    Best advice possible in my opinion. They are all great these days just have to find the right fit

    like was stated before shoot as many bows as you can. Go to Wilde Arrow, and Utah archery center, or Jakes archery and they will let you shoot anything side by side that they have, great people at all places. I just bought a Faktor Turbo and love it. Had a guy bring by His Mathews Creed for me to set up for him and that was also a sweet shooting bow.

    I bought a Hoyt Charger extended draw as I have a 32 inch draw. Very smooth and fast. The best part was the price $499 for a quality product.

    Definitely take a look at a Faktor 34. We have a guy at our club that is about the same size and really likes the bow. Always remember shoot a lot difference bows before you buy. You'll find the one that fits you best.

    There's a good archery shop in Centerville and Jeremiah is great to work with. Post some pictures once you have a new bow!
