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.

      Decided to try trout fishing through the ice for the first time and it was awesome. We were setup in 80ft of water and were catching them 20 ft down jigging a silver kastmaster spoon. It was pretty cool to see how the fish acted with the underwater camera. They were like sharks when they came in. We had probably 30 or more trout come in and check out the bait but only few takers.  Was a lot of fun. Definitly going to explore more trout lakes. Doesn't get much better then fishing on lakes with no houses on them!    Here is a video of the trip with underwater video of the strikes:  https://youtu.be/6JuJhq-50X4

      There was 20 at the site.  I'm not worried about the main sheet of ice, just the access and near shore/shallow areas.   Plenty of ice everywhere else I drilled.

      My kids went out Sat, Sun.  Went from Vermilion to Myrtle lake, said the trails were bumpy, but plenty of snow.  Lake has snow, but pretty slushy.
