I have a Bowtech Tribute and it is like shooting a silent rifle... I LOVE it! It is the best bow I have ever shot in my life and Bowtech has great customer service, they sent me a set of cams for free so the bow could be fitted to my long draw. I will try to get a pic up in a day or two.

I chose a Bowtech Tribute over Matthews Switchback because it is SMOOTHER overall, there is no jump or chop. It shoots like butter.

I have shot both and Bowtech is the winner in my book.

The tribute is what I got on order, just wanting insight on the quality. Next will be the sights/rest/etc...

Yes. But I'm a Hoyt fan personally.

They are nice people. They don't stock the KO's (kodiak outdoors) but they will order them (notice a theme here? I really suggest you try a KO before buying anything). Really great bows from a local company. At OC Archery they try to stock different equipment than the Fullerton boys. Got my Long Bow from them

Joe at High Tech Archery put on the peep sight and tuned it for me.

I love this freaking bow!

Well just got back from OC Archery, great place they took the time to set up my bow and measure my arrows, then let me try some releases to see which one I liked best, the best part was I did not buy the bow from them, just the rest, sight, release and arrows, they only charge me $10 for the labor. And I had the choice of changing the rest, and sight if I change my mind later...they are awesome and I highly recommend....

Oh, almost forgot.. unlike most places they did not push the most expensive equipment, just the ones that feels right for the bowman...:p
