the only bowtech bow ive fired is the assassin. the only complaint i have is the click it makes when you lock it out at full draw, it shot smooth though, bowtech makes great bows, i love martin for their price and customer service, but im not going to sit hear and tell you that they are better than anything else. the best advice has already been given, shoot both of them and make your own decision. maybe even shoot them at two different places so that the store owner does lean towards one bow or the other
