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.

        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,

      Nobody needs that kind of grief.  I hope he's able to overcome that in short order.

      Yes. Casey did sell his new boat and retire from guiding, at least for a while. He has been having serious shoulder and neck problems that have interfered with his guiding abilities. Hope that he gets this problem remedied soon and is able to return to guiding! Cliff
