    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

    Only problem i have with shooting both bows is, there is not any rytera dealers anywhere, especially near me and im already driving an hour just to shoot the bowtech all the dealers by me only have mathews hoyt parker and pse all of which i dont care for at all. thats why i started this thread was to get as much opinions on the bows as i can.

    No dealers nearby, one of the best reasons to buy a Martin/Rytera bow.

    The 340 is an awsome bow, it was the last Bowtech I owned prior to me switching to Martin. For me the bow shot great its what I took my buck with last year. The only problem I saw was how the draw stop worked.......no fine adjustment, other than that its one solid bow. Ive never shot the Rytera so I cant say which I feel is better.........I left Bowtech after 5 years for alot of reasons, Im not a basher I guess I just got tired of being one of the sheep.

    im a martin man,but hands down bowtech makes some of the best bows out there, but theres a down side to it, bowtech has to have the worst customer service in the industry, very bad. my archery club is a bowtech dealer and they have issues with the customer service. The destroyer 340 is one of their most popular former bows to. But its real easy to buy into the hype of bowtech and waste a bunch of money on the insanity, when the bowtech assassin is probably theri best bang for the buck. Ive never shot a rytera, nor do i know how much they cost, im sure its great but im not into all the cosmetic crap. It would be good to shoot them both. on the upside martin has the best cs in the industry so there ya go

    well over a month later and finally shooting both bows i decided one neither lol, the rytera felt so much like the onza i almost couldnt tell the difference so i went with the onza because of bad reviews on the destroyer derailing and finish problems and the price of the onza kept my wallet a little fatter.

    Congrats Wilt. You made a good choice. I liked my first Onza so much, I bought another one 10 pounds lighter draw. lol I've shot all the 2011 Martins, and I still think it's the best shooting of them all.
