The Mission X-Series?

5 posts in this topic

I am looking to get back into Archery once again. I used PSE threw out my youth, but I am leaning twords Mathews as a bow to get back on the path with.

I am not ready to pull the trigger with spending a $1000.00 on a set up right now, so I am looking at a little lower cost. I am liking the X4 and X3. I figure this should be a good bow to start back in again with and maybe pass down to my son in a couple years.

Then again, should I just spend the money on the DXT, Buckmasters or Journey now?

I was granted access to another 160 acres of private land for gun season this year. It is managed as far as food plots and such, but not hunted as of last year and for years to come. I was told I could bow hunt it also. I figure a couple weeks of blowing some arrows out back at targets and a some trips up to the range should get me back in the swing of things for hunting again.

Just getting the itch again and getting sick of being left out on some great bow trips with my buddies also. I wanted to get a couple opinions on the Mission X-Series before going up and pulling the trigger.

Thanks

I shot the Mission last year at Whitcombs. I thought it felt like a great bow. If it feels good to you and you like it, I'd say go for it.

I purchased the X4 last year and really like the bow. It is light, quiet, and reasonably priced. These are also made in famous Sparta, Wisconsin.

I bought the x3 last year. It is a great bow, fast, quiet, light... so far it has killed 3 deer. Oh yeah have the price of a mathews but with the same quality. IMO

    • I used to sip cognac with a beer and I didn't even get in to whiskeys or bourbons until 8 or 10 years ago, so as a novice I started with the Canadian blends like Crown, Tangle Ridge and Pendleton and I'm more of a sipper using the old fashioned glasses.  I can't give recommendations on any of the really good brands, but if you ever see some of this... run screaming from the bar.  
    • Catfish is right up there with walleye, perch, trout, steelhead, salmon, flounder, grouper.....
    • What does it matter what Bernie Sanders had figured out considering the DNC blatantly rigged the primary against him? And then they tried with all their might to do it again and were exposed.   Face it, you party is fueled by people who are showing that they are the very ones they claim to be fighting against.    Immoral, intolerant, violent, judgemental and full of hate. 
    • hope to have my nills by next weekend to do some testing. 6 incher. putting it with a ryobi 600 pound torque drill with 4 amp batteries. sold the clam plate and auger. friend also use it with the milwaukee drill and same hang up issue. used an 8 inch k drill on bowstring last week with the milwaukee fuel.  opened holes nice and drilled nice. 
    • Trump totally destroyed by hundreds of thousands the numbers that were in attendance for the inaugurations of LBJ and Gerald Ford. Trump again wins. Just win, win, win, win, if not pretend you did.   He may just do the same thing to the country, so don't get to excited.
    • Just drove down from the Brainerd area. Lots of snow up there but going fast. Saw 4 young guys in a ditch south of there with not much snow and one sled with hood up smoking bad. Their still learning you need snow to cool your liquid sleds!
    • What a fun election cycle, first Trump dismantles the Republican party and may take them to even lower lows by winning. Then even more surprising is the Democrats totally imploding all on their own and losing to Trump in the process. No hollywood script can compete with this kind of crazyness, just happy to be alive to witness all of this mess and hope there is much much more to come. Something tells me I won't be disappointed, I am almost excited for the next one, 4 years ago I never would have thought that in my wildest dreams.
    • If this crazy weather keeps up a guy might have to go to the mountains to have enough snow to ride.
    • I purchased a 20v 986 Dewalt brushless and used it with my Nils 8" and could not believe how fast it cut. Very close to my Tanaka motor as far as speed. My plan is to use it with my 6" Nils but wanted to give it a good test and it passed with flying colors. 
    • Pretty sure Bernie had that figured out. After the primaries I voted for "not Trump" You guys haven't picked up that liberals are still going for not Trump, even if that means Mike Pence (who from a political position standpoint is worse for liberals).   Instead you have Trump, a man incapable of taking any form of criticism regardless of how irrelevant it is to anything. Why do I post the crowd sizes? Because Trump, in a speech given only to members of the CIA, thought it was important enough to mention, as well as to have a team of his own people there to applaud when he mentioned the size of the crowds.
