Default Equipment ?'s... upgrading in the near future

I have been bowfishing for quite a while now and am looking to upgrade my current bow. Right now im shooting a 40lb PSE compound from the 70's. It has gotten the job done for me in the past but im looking to upgrade. I have a few options i would like to explore. Currently i also own a Fred Bear single cam compound 60-70# (id have to use a release instead of shooting fingers), and a fred bear montana longbow (no adaptability for the bow reel). My problems with each are listed in the (..). I realise the compound would throw a fast arrow and i would be able to smack 'em alot farther then i currently can, but i dont like the idea of having to always use a release.

i also have a barnett crossbow that i am looking at mounting my reel to. IL is the only state that allows bowfishing with a crossbow so that may work and will be really fun.

Sooo i have been looking at 3 bows to get aound this: Martin Jaguar $160, PSE Mustang $210, and the PSE Cyote $270... do any of you have these bows? If so, what do you think of them.

If not, what do you use and how do you like it....
