I'm just curious...how many of you people that bought a Mathews recently actually compared and shot other top brand bows? (Hoyt, Bowtech, PSE, etc.) Was there a noticeable difference? What made you decide on a Mathews besides all of the marketing hype?

It took me ten minutes to realize he had even written anything. She's got to go, now I know why Tony Romo had such a hard time playing football when she was in the stands.

Could you please let us all know what weekend she will be working in Bock. I'd be willing to guess you know where I'm talking about.

I payed 750$ for my DXT new. I did shoot a few other bows and wasnt impressed. Most other bows just arent as smooth. I think for noise and everything else, they are pretty comparable, but almost all other bows when you hit that let off point in the cam or whatever your draw kinda shoots back. The matthews is smooth and steady all the way to full draw!

"I'll guess the new one will be around $800"

Biff, I know when i asked koonie a week ago he thought the new mattthews would stay at that price you listed above. So unless something has changed thats what your looking at.

I've shot a lot of the top end bows the past couple of years, they are all high quality and you really can't go wrong with any of them, its all personal preference. If anyone tells you otherwise it kind of falls back on the endless Ford vs Chevy vs Dodge debate, everyone thinks theirs is the best.

What do you shoot and why do you shoot it? Just curious.

I currently shoot a Bowtech Allegiance, I liked the feel of the bow, it was fast shooting and I got it at a very good price. Had I got the same price on a Mathews I woudl probably own one. I've shot a lot of different bows over the past couple years and I really don't see one brand significantly better than the others, they are all great bows and I would be happy to shoot any of them. Like I said it all comes down the personal preference and what works best for you, next time I upgrade I might end up with a Mathews or a Hoyt. I'm not loyal to one brand, it all depends on how the bow shoots and what I like the best.

And yes I would rather be out hunting on this fine Saturday morning but I am home with the little guy while the wife is at work. The good news is I will be up in a tree tonight.

What do you shoot and why do you shoot it? Just curious.

I shoot a Parker Ultra lite that is about 8 years old and I am considering buying a new bow in the near future. I have shot a Hoyt Vectrix a couple of years ago and was amazed at how smooth it was. I also shot a top of the line Fred Bear that same day and for the money it was a good bow but not quite as smooth.

The reason I asked was because I haven't shot a new Mathews or any of the top of the line bows recently and I was curious what it was that made you Mathews guys decide to buy a Mathews, especially when they cost more. I definately want to try one.

On a side note. While at Ripley last wknd there were 4 guys target shooting by my truck. Three of the guys had newer Mathews bows(either Drenalins or DXTs, not sure which)and were wearing Mathews hats and shirts. The other guy had what looked like a newer Bowtech. The other bow was noticably quieter than the three Mathews and the guy with the other bow was grouping his arrows much tighter than the Mathews guys. I realize that there are a lot of other variables that could explain this. Just my observation.

Wasn't bustin on ya. Just curious.

Seems like a lot of Mathews guys buy everything Mathews. Clothes, hats you name it. If it has mathews on it they buy it.

I'm not really that interested in the name. If it shoots well I'll give it a shot. This year I got a Mathews S2. All you hear about is the DXT and last years Drenalin. I just decided to get something a little different. The S2 is more or less an updated Switchback. Before I got the S2 I had the Bowtech Guardian and before that the Switchback XT. Of the last three bows I've had the Guardian was far and away my favorite bow to shoot. Only negative was the rollover was a little drastic.

Considered getting the Bear Truth II this year because for the money I think Bear bows are top notch. I'd not shy away from the Hoyt line or the Reflex either. We carry Reflex and I have been very impressed with their smoothness and how quiet they are. A little on the heavy side though(not necessarily a negative).

Lots of good to great bows out there. Every one is a little different from the next. Shoot what works best for you and don't let anyone talk you into something just because it's supposed to be the hot new thing. Unless the hot new thing works for you. wink

Had a guy come in with an X force yesterday. Chronographed it for him. 308 fps! Amazingly quiet as well.

    • wear a good balaclava and get a open face with a cold weather breath box never had a problem
    • In my opinion I would look for a nice used wingmaster 2 of my friends have bought a new 870 express about a year apart and they both had the same shell extraction problems. Maybe just a fluke but when I see two different people have the same problem with a Gun makes me think to find a different choice. Heck I have a Mossberg 500 that I treat like poop and I have never had one single malfunction.   I have shot my friends newer express and I can really tell the difference in quality beside my wingmaster  
    • I have Ice Kings.  They are in a word, awesome.  They are about 20-25 years old. Dang I hate dating myself but I have never even bought new liners for these boots.  They are probably one of the finest products I won.  I have never had so much as a chill i my feet.  I usually fish outside but if I am in a flip over, my feet are usually on the ice.  Again, never a chill.  I typically wear a midnight smart wool sock.   For some reason I have been considering new boots.  I guess it is the weight, I would love to have something that is not s heavy and also has better traction.   Today I visited Joe's Sporting Goods and saw some really nice boots (they have a great selection) by Muck, Lacrosse, Sorel, Baffin and some other Canadian made boot that looked very nice. I checked out the ice Kings........they are not the same boot as I have, they don't seem to have the quality to me.  They might be as warm but the rubber feels more stiff almost like it would crack, the uppers are solid leather, mine are leather and corder combo.  The liner also seemed thinner.   After looking at all the boots, I am surprised none offer water proof uppers. Also I am not entirely certain why some seem extend up to your knee with insulation.  Just seems like Over kill because most who would where these boots owed also have some sort of insulated pant on.  Overall I found the boots to be pretty heavy, I was surprised with 20 years past boots have not advanced more.
    • But will be missed but most.............you mad bro?    
    • You boxed yourself.   He was not supporting the Vikings stadium, he was saying that Republicans supported it and now are feigning outrage over the cook subsidy. And then not to be outdone the Republicans are now celebrating the Carrier subsidy.   Pretty much just reinforced his point.      
    • Think we should change the topic to "Trump for Trees."........and all will be well.
    • Had to go all the way back to Missouri to hunt in the snow this year! Beautiful morning but not much movement. Did see some late rut activity Friday.
    • Dotch, you guys over there are almost famous....   Almost because it is Waseca, but whatever.    Mark Seeley's weather blog... http://blog-weathertalk.extension.umn.edu/   .... Waseca now reports 54.13 inches of precipitation for 2016 and this is a new statewide annual precipitation record, surpassing the old one of 53.52" at St Francis (Anoka County) in 1991.
      ....   And an interesting thought...(from Mark, not me) Commentary on Winter TIME: No question will be answered this week, but I want to take TIME to make a comment about Winter TIME. Managing the TIME in the Winter Season in Minnesota is a different ball game than other seasons of the year, because everything takes longer. No question winter will be felt more frequently soon in the daily weather, and snowfalls will become more frequent this month. The rash of bicycle, pedestrian, and vehicular accidents reported during the snow storms towards the end of November reminded me about adjusting for Winter TIME. Our concept of time needs to be adjusted. Lengthen the time intervals that you have intuitively built-into your everyday habits and tasks. It takes longer to walk places, longer to drive places, longer to dress and undress, longer to warm up the car, longer to degomble (shed snow) when you come into the house. You need to make time to shovel snow, scrape the windshield, clean the furnace filters, When you walk take shorter steps and not too fast...put the boots, gloves and hat on when you go outside....check on the neighbor if their place hasn't been shoveled...everything should slow down..except for the long Minnesota goodbye..that is better shortened...just say goodbye, open the door, leave and close the door behind you....no need to stand in an open doorway for minutes conversing about last minute stuff. Winter TIME is an adjustment that may save you anxiety, regret, or even injury.
    • Would you use a bobber on your rattle reel with these? I would think a lively minnow would pull the line out of the contacts.
    • My my, how the mighty have fallen...  I went back to the thread on the cook subsidy, and what did I find in the second post from you, on the second page....     Gee, you were ok with the 66 million because it wasn't a stadium or something, but now all butt hurt over 7 million of Indiana money?    Now that there is a funny joke.
