Thoughts on new bows?

Postby teacher » Wed Jun 10, 2009 8:53 am

I am planning on buying a new bow this summer, and I was curious what you guys know or think about the new bows that are out on the market this year.

I have been really looking at the Matthew's Reezen. Almost everything that I have read about it has been really positive. Any of you have any inside info on it?

What about other bows?

What would you buy if you could get anything you wanted?

What accessories would you put on it?

I have a Mattews but it's a switchback. This coming season will be the 4th season.

The one option I have some people say it's cheating and that's a Whisker Biscuit.

The Reezen is a great bow. Friend of mine has one, he upgraded from his LX and thats a big upgrade in speed lol.

Personally i am partial to bowtech. The Captain or AirRaid is what i had my eye on. But i just cant let go of this Tribute.

I've owned PSE, Hoyt, High Country and most recently a Mathews. All have been great bows, but the Mathews is the smoothest and most quiet of all the ones I've shot. I bought a Switchback XT 2 years ago and love it. I was choosing between it and the Drenalin - just liked the Switchback better. I went today to have my serving repaired and shot the new Mathews Monster while at the bow shop. Man that thing is smoking :shock: The guy at the shop said he had one and was getting 336 with a hunting arrow at 61 lbs @ 29" draw. I believe it...However, I really didn't like all that much because of the long and heavy wall of a double cam bow...just doesn't feel as good drawing as the single cams. So, with all that being said, if I was looking I would seriously consider the Reezen... :)

I just got a Hoyt Powerhawk for graduation and I love it. It is quiet and shoots real good. Of course I really couldn't complain if I wanted to because it was FREE!!!

Well, the deed is done! I went to Hunter's Hollow in Oxford yesterday and bought the new Matthews Reezen. IT IS SWEET!

Been shooting the Muzzy MX-4 for the last couple of years. I really like them. Shot pretty much like a field tip out of my Hoyt. Not sure how they will do out of the new Matthews, but I will know in a week or so. What about you?

I did shoot the 100 grain but I was getting good penatration so I sat and talked with Roger at The Outfitter, I had gone to a lighter arrow and he suggested to go up on broadhead weight and nothing but pass throughs ever since... its amzing how such a small change can make such a big difference

yep but I had changed arrows to a lighter arrow and I wasnt getting the punch out of my old bow, It wasnt the broadheads fault it was my setup, and after changing to the 125's it brought my total arrow weight back in line with what works with my old bow
