    Thumbs up I've heard...

    great things about it, although I have not shot it myself, all that I've read has been positive. My buddy just ordered his and he shot all the major brands and he said hands down it was the smoothest drawing bow he shot. I would shoot them all first....but I think you would be making a good choice! When you're spending that kind of ching$ on a bow, you want to be sure.

    Good luck!

    Default Vectrix

    I just picked up a HOYT Vulcan (80 lb'er) about a month or so ago and it shoots GREAT! I've also shot the Vectrix and its top notch as well, fast, quite, and ZERO vibration in your hand. 2-thumbs up for Hoyt and there current line of bows...

    Default Hoyt Vectrix

    I have a Hoyt Vectrix, and love it. Many people ask about the Vectrix's weight, as Hoyt does not list it. I called Hoyt, and was told the weight on the 33" model is 4lbs 6oz. That is 4.375lbs. To compare, the Mathews Switchback XT is 4.25lbs. Also, the Vectix XL weighs 2oz more than the 33" model. The bare bow does not feel heavy. A lighter bow such as the Mathews Drenalin (3.85lbs) does not absorb hand shock as well, in my opinion. I shoot a 28" draw length. I found that the Vectrix draw length at 28" is really about 27.5", and the cam is not adjustable. This info may come in useful if you are ordering a Vectrix used off ebay. Next, SPEED. The bow is fast. My 28" shot a 350 grain arrow in the high 280's. It also fired one of my hunting arrows (maybe 450 grains) in the 260s. When fired, the bow just sits in your hand...no hand shock. And, it is very, very quite. Hope this helps someone...Brian

    Cost in Texas for the Vectrix was $700.

    "My 28" shot a 350 grain arrow in the high 280's. It also fired one of my hunting arrows (maybe 450 grains) in the 260s."
    I should have mentioned that the draw weight was at 69lbs to get this speed.
