    There's a good archery shop in Centerville and Jeremiah is great to work with. Post some pictures once you have a new bow!
    I have shot a lot of different bows over the last 2 weeks. If I were to pick the 3 top bows based on my criteria it would be.
    Hoyt faktor 34, Prime Impact, Hoyt faktor turbo.
    I think you need to develop your own set of bow selection criteria and go shoot them.
    Go to several bow shops and shoot them all.
    Good luck!

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.

    x2 on what Extreme provided above. Nothing replaces the comfort/confidence you'll have from getting to try them out in the shop. I've walked out of shops with cash in pocket knowing I was going to buy a bow but they didn't allow you to shoot them. Granted, it's not a car, but wouldn't buy a car if I didn't drive it first...

    Faktor 34. I have the faktor 30 and I love it. My friend Scott has the 34 with a 31inch draw an that bow shoots fast fast fast an smooth.

    thanks guys, i appreciate the advice from all. I have gone around and shot several different bows. I have always gone to utah archery center. matter of fact i bought my first bow from them when they were sportsmans archery. I've got it narrowed down to the faktor 34 and the pse source. pictures will be coming in the next few weeks! thanks guys

    Actually the full throttle only goes to a 30" draw length so it probably wouldnt work for rsess32. I would recommend the 2013 Elite hunter! Best bow in a long time! At 70lbs the draw cycle is silky smooth and when you get to full draw the let off makes it feel like you have to push the string forward to let down. It is not a barn burner as far as speed but as far as accuracy and shootability you can't beat it IMO.

    +1 on the Elites. I shoot an Answer (I like a longer Axel-to-Axel bow). It is a screamer and super forgiving. I actually had to double check the draw weight, because it felt too light for a 70lb bow maxed out, but it was at 74. I could hardly believe it. I think my Hoyt Carbon Matrix might be looking for a new home soon.

    +2 on the elites. I shot pse for 14 yrs even worked there, this year I went to elite energy 35. Best bow I've shot in a long time.
