I upgraded from my XT to the Dren. this year. I rarely upgrade bows that soon, 1 every 5 years if I am lucky. I truly think it is much smoother, quieter, and well balanced than the XT was for me. I loved the XT but this bow blew it away by my standards. I cannot find a complaint about the bow. I promise I am not one of those "die hard" Mathews fans preaching Mathews because of its name.

I almost bought the new Bowtech Gaurdian as well. I also liked the Hoyt Vectrix and was quite impressed. It seems that when it comes to these top end bows you can simply not make the wrong choice.

I went with the Drenalin because of the uncomparable upgrade in feel and smoothness compared to the XT for me.

I went to Archery Country last saturday and shot the mathews drenalin, the Hoyt Vectrix, and the Bowtech Guardian for over an hour and i had a very tough time deciding. The first of the three i eliminated was the Drenalin. It is a Very nice bow, and i had a very tough time deciding, but the grip just didn't fit me well in comparison, thats why I decided agianst it. I ended up going over to Mikes Archery and getting the Vectrix, i pick it up tomarrow, i'm so excited!!!!! I did like how the Drenalin was a little lighter than the Vectrix though. Between the Guardian and the Vectrix i chose the Vectrix because i was a little skeptical of the center pivot system, and i liked Mike's a little better and they don't cary Bowtech.

      Nice thats what I like to hear, was doing an annual trip to LOW with my buddies, but to be quite honest biggest fish I ever saw in 10 plus trips was 27 inches, I caught 3 bigger than that on the pond last year, and hey I can stay in Wright county where I live and catch 10 inch walleyes.. I don't make it up to that end of the lake ever, usually fish the south end..Bought a wheel house this year, would loke to set it up as base camp and hopefully be able to head up toward that end and do some exploring..And thanks for the input, thinking there is a lot of readers and not many writers on this site nowadays...

      Lake Marion is completely iced over. Hopefully we won't get much snow and be fishing soon.

      Silver lake in New Brighton is iced over. I'm going to count one week before checking thickness on my early ice spots. Could be fishing next Friday if all goes well.
