    My brother wants a new bow. He wants either the reezen 7.0 or the alphamax 32. I have tried to help him with his decision but i haven’t shot the hoyt alphamax so i cant really help him because i have only shot the reezen. What are the pros and cons of both. Any help with his decision would be greatly appreciated

    Very pleased with my 7.0 Reezen. Tuned up nice and shoots great.
    Mathews Solocam and Chill series

    That’s a tough choice. I have shot them both and would have to shoot them both a lot to decide. Mathews service may be the deciding factor. I think the Reezen is faster but not by much. I shoot with a friend who is shooting the AM 32 and it is a fast, smooth, and accurate bow. Even with broadheads.

    It will get down to what the archer wants in a bow. I don’t care for the Hoyt cam systems and the bulky riser. But that’s just me :whistle

    How old is he? If he is younger than you and still growing, I’d chose the AlphaMax because the DL is adjustable and it weighs slightly less. I think the AlphaMax has a slightly smoother draw cycle, which accounts for the slightly lower IBO rating, which is really not a factor, IMHO since both bows are plenty fast.

    On the other hand, if this would be his first bow and you are not considering a DW over 50#, then he/you should also consider the Mission Menace.
