    Default Mathews New Bows

    Men talking about some Low Bh and ATA,S Speed seems to be a real factor .But there so short that a midget would be the only person who could use one .Btw the price ranges form 869 to 899 More then likely it will be more up here

    Default Speed Bandwagon

    Yeah looks like Mathews jumped on the Speed Bandwagon. Is everyone as surprised as me to see they built a dual cam bow?
    I hear you on the BH though 5" WOW! That is a little too short for my blood. I do like the looks and specs of the Reezen 7.0 though. Be interesting to see how their new bows shoot.

    Wow a 5"? Very touchy bow. Speed doesn't kill. Accuracy does.

    I liked my Black Max at 5 1/2" BH, not sure if I would go 5".

    I did like the looks of the Reezen 6.5 and 7. Might have to shoot one. Although everytime I shoot a new Mathews, I end up owning it.

    I wonder How many Uncle Bill Sold at Back Country Archery? Last time he sold 15 bows in two weeks .I bet he has a run on the new ones

    Gotta adapt if one wants to survive I guess. Money talks and there's always bigger, faster, stronger (I'll stick with my 294 fps Drenalin at 70 Lbs with 398 gr arrows.)

    If you can't hit what you see, it doesn't matter how fast your arrow goes. I will take a more forgiving bow over speed any day. I do like speed don't get me wrong.

    I have looked at Mathews to many times.. and it is like shopping for a pair of jeans in my op... i can't see paying the extra for the name on the limb... when i can get the same reliability on the next shelf over,

    i shoot a martin MV2. wife shoots martin, and cost for cost pound for pound i have always fallen back to Martin. I like bow tech too.. they are finally coming into a reasonable range compared to the run on them a few years ago. never found a Hoyt i liked..

    Default both

    They are taking the market on the 2 cam speed bows and promoting both the single AND the dual cam as far as I can tell.

    The reezen looks like a nice bow...haven't shot it yet - afraid to, my outback is still working fine.

    that is a good question. I would of thought they may have changed there grip from a de flex to a reflex.

    I am kind of curious to see what the monster XLR8 looks like. I like the standard monster, but i think that i might give the new Mathews a year on the market before i make the switch.
