Welcome to the forum dude, I shot Mathews also and for the last few years Ive shot Bowtech. I changed over to Martin this year and I have no regrets. My 3D rig is a 2012 Pantera and my hunting rig is a 2011 Onza III. My advice is to talk to everyone you can......shoot the bows. Read all the reviews that you can find.........Martin has made a pretty strong statement for 2012, the forums and the members can tell you alot.......use it all you can!
