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!

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.

    • I look at it like cast iron....numerous cookings give 'em a perfect seasoning. Gotta leave some residue on IMO.
    • No butcher buddy? They can order one for ya....be advised they have taken a huge leap in prices. Ask a butcher about that. Mine (who's also a good friend) said it's the highest he's ever seen 'em at right now.
    • jhust find a locker plant that smokes their own bellies and buy one from them.
    • I have seen it in Costco quite often.  Didn't look last time.    Or call around, often the meat markets will special order if desired.   Seems it was in the 3 buck a pound area if I remember right.     I don't know how far from a Costco you are, but they are a good place to buy meat.   Sams Club might work also. 
    • Pretty hard to tell. Is this on a TWSP, County or State road? You will need to get a permit from them and build it to their standards if approved. Will you need a culvert? Probably will unless you locate it at a highpoint. Will you have to remove any trees? How much fill is needed? is the ditch deep or shallow? How long do you want it? Hopefully you are not impacting any wetlands... It use to be simple, but now it is much more complicated. Could get spendy...
    • Since my smoker is new for now I throw them in the big wash sinks in the basement with some Dawn and hot water to soak. Then rinse them with more hot water. I'm sure in time once they get more "purplefloyd seasoned". I'll rub them a bit with a grill brush and hit them with a garden hose! 
    • Hello from the NW Angle of Lake of the Woods!

      Here in Minnesota, water temps are in the low to mid 60’s and the Walleyes keep rollin’ in! Wind blown shorelines are giving up walleyes via leeches and crank-baits right along the weed line. Crawlers on a gold and/or orange spinner are producing fish out of the mud between 22 and 26 feet. Jigging has been tough this week with the strong winds, but the Mayflies have finally tapered off!!
       
      Up on the Canadian side, bottom bouncing has been filling the live wells outside of monument bay between 24-28 feet.  Jigging near Skeet and Kennedy Islands have seen nice sized walleye and numerous perch. Great smallmouth action can currently be had in Tranquil channel and the mouth of Johnston passage. Muskie fishing is still sporadic with high 40” class fish being caught from shallow bottom bays or just outside of them. 

      Fish of the Week:
      49" and 46" Muskie
      40" Pike
      At least 10 Walleye over 25" 

      We hope to see you soon! Sunset Lodge
    • Anyone know where I can find it?  Checked a couple grocery stores and even a butcher and nobody has it?  Also what's a decent price if I do find any? 
    • When mine get caked I nuke em on the gas grill for about 15 minutes. easy peasy  
    • I agree with purpleflloyd..........seasoning. I MIGHT use a grill brush twice a year that's it.
