DXT

9 posts in this topic

Alright the time has come for me to purchase a new bow, I am looking at the Matthews DXT. I want to know if the guys who shoot them think they are really worth all the money? If not what else would you consider buying?

Thanks

I'm happy with mine. Not sure what you mean by "worth all that money". They are not cheap but neither are many of the others out there.

No, a new Matthews is not cheap and you do pay some extra for the name but look at the quality one recieves.

Short, light, smooth, fast, and quiet. It's up to you if it's worth it. Also, Mathews bows hold their value a little better than most bows. In case you decide you need a new bow in a couple years.

If you keep it for 10 years that $800 bow only cost $80 per year. At least that's how I justify buying expensive toys.

Maybe it was just sticker shock when I priced out the DXT. It has been a long time since I bought a bow my last one was used ten years ago for about $150. From what I have heard the DXT is best of the best, I just wanted to know if anybody bought one and then was dissapointed for any reason.

I have shot some of the competitors and to me nothing felt as smooth as the matthews.

Thanks again for feedback.

I would agree jhol, the DXT was the smoothest bow I shot. My best advice is tell the dealer not to tell you the total price hand him a credit card and close your eyes when you sign. I tell you what though it feels like I have $1,300 worth of equiptment. I have the utmost confidence in my DXT.

I still have an LX, still shoots great. I'm not one to buy a new bow every year because this one still shoots as good as the day I bought it. So I'm sure it's well worth the money if you plan on keeping it for a while.

The DXT is a great bow and worth every penny. Now if your pinching the pennys than I would look at other brands or other models that mathews have to offer. Don't get caught up in the best of the best B.S. IMO I have a highend jobber becuase of some great deals and extra $$$ I came into but if I was going to coin up out of my pocket I would consider a Bear, Diamond, Hoyt, and the Dream season line of bows.

Believe me you can still miss a buck of a life time with a $1,300 bow just as easy as a $450 bow. I proved that last night!!!

I LOVE my DXT.

I shot quite a few bows and when I drew the dxt back it was mine. I knew right then and there. I shot each bow several time and tried to keep an open mind but I fell in love w/ the dxt. I have a really bad shoulder (2 surgeries last year) so I was limited to 60# and wanted a smooth pulling bow.

the only negative about the bow is the price. when i totaled up how much my entire rig cost i got butterflies. this bow better last me ten years!!!

    • The past week has had me having multiple close calls and missing a brute at 45 yards.  Tonight I talked my dad to give it another try and there were birds in the field when we got there.  Birds ended up leaving as we tried to sneak in.  A short 20 minutes later they were back and we watched and worked the big group of toms and hens for more than 2 hours before we got one to commit.  Dad shot him with his 20 gauge at 48 yards,(this thing shoots an awesome pattern).  The 3 year old was down and only flopped a few times.   Nice 1+ inch spurs, 10" beard and heavy.  A good evening for sure!
    • Sorry to disappoint guys, but this tom was not my first bird of the season. Apparently that's part of the rules. The score won't count towards the team. I don't have any measurements for the jake I shot so we will have a zero from me.    At least my freezer is full. 
    • Way to  go 1957 !! Congrats!!
    • sugar is not a drug. 
    • Another good day today out on Superior ,,,, Had my first double and triple in the new rig today ,,, the day didnt start out with perfect weather but the fishing more then made up for it ,,, The mud  covers a lot of water but fishing the tea  colored water and edges of the mud paid off ,,, the cohos grew 5 inches  from eating this years smelt,,,, had some go 23 inches today 
    • Say no to drugs, like sugar.  Yes, sugar is a drug.
    • I won't be able to post the scores for this week until maybe Wed. so if someone else wishes to do so feel free to do it. In fact for the entire summer season I'm going to be pretty much hit and miss. So don't count on me the lake is calling and I have no computer there. My scores will drop like a rock unless luck prevails.
