Matt has done it again, you'll be impressed. Don't know if you'll need to swap a 2 month old DXT though!

I was told today by Archery Country that it will have an IBO of 340-360! That sure seems high. Next week is when they announce.

I'm pretty sure I'm gonna get one in 70lbs after losing my elk this year d/t poor penetration. Anyone need an Outback? grin

I just saw one of their new ads... 340-360. Had to compete with the X-Force I guess. Anyone want a slightly used Drenalin? grin Bowtech and Diamond have some beauties too... tough decisions this year.

Today is the 17 and that should mean we get to see a new bow or two. i've heard some people say they are releasing 3 or 5 this year but not sure if i believe all of that but regardless im dying to see. So i tried to get on the matthews HSOforum to see if they have the new bows posted but it wouldn't let me said the server wasnt working so has anyone seen the new line up yet?!? If someone could can you post the pictured on here otherwise i will just wait until it works.

We got the reezen in today and that thing is unbelievable. Blazin fast, smooth draw, super quiet even without anything on it, and very little hand shock.

So just curious how much forgivness or acuracy are you giving up with going with a 6.5 brace height instead of a 7? can it really make that much difference. i read an article that since i have a short 27inch draw that going with a smaller brace height wont hurt. Im sure liking that reezen everytime i look at just makes me want to buy one!

That was my biggest concern about this new bow when I heard about the IBO was accuracy. I wonder what the forgiveness will be like with these amazingly fast speeds? I wouldn't give up accuracy for speed, we'll see when the reviews start coming in I guess.

I've been reading up on the 6.5 and it seems like guys are experiencing some hand shock. Smooth draw with a solid wall though. I won't even consider it as I'm not a speed guy but I'd definitely like to shoot the Reezen 7 when it becomes available.

Nothing against Matthews but those bows have PSE copycat written all over them.

I don't like the idea of that low of a brace height. I'm not a speed guy either, accuracy is my biggest selling point.

I made a trip to Archery Country in St. Cloud this past weekend to shoot a couple bows and ended up coming home with a Matthews Reezen 6.5 It has a smooth draw with a little hump at the end but its not bad IMHO. Had some vibration but not much at all and all that was fixed with a stabilizer and a STS now its dead in the hand. I also shot a Hoyt AM 32, Bowtech Admiral, and a PSE xforce but overall i choose the Matthews. Im a short draw archer so i was looking for a speed bow and at 26inch DL, 70lb DW, and a tad over 360grain total arrow weight it crono's at 295-300. That is right were it should be considering IBO of 340 with a 30inch draw. Very impressive for a single cam bow that is pleasurable to shoot! I put on a QAD HD pro series rest,STS, Apex Nitrus 6pin sight,Apex MQX Nano Quiver, limbsavers Scoil stabilzer, and some Carbon Express Maxima Hunter 250's. Couldnt be happier or more excited for the up coming bow season!

And here I thought Matthews was the leader in the archery field.

No it wasnt a cheap day at all. I guess my thing is if im going to use a bow for 10 years i want something that is going to make me happy. Plus knowing how good Matthews customer service is sure makes me smile knowing i will have the bow for some time.

Just think how far we've come - 26" draw length and you're shooting almost 300 fps. I used to think that would just make me miss faster, but fortunately they are making the bows better shooting as well. Have fun!

ps: don't worry, Mathews is still the innovative leader. PSE just beat them to the punch on the speed thing

Mathews just put the monster out to show they could build a speed bow. Matt isn't all that excited about it. It's just a fast bow and that's it. That's how he put it anyway.

    • Well another game 7 tomorrow night.  Sens have a tough go having to play in Pitt.  Hoping they can pull it off though.  That Karlsson has some wheels!  Even in the 3rd period last night he was fast.     If it is Preds and Pitt it is a toss up, probably go 7 games.  If it is Preds and Sens, I think Preds will take it in 5-6.  
    • I get your drift Rebel but this kid is not going looking for trouble. I think he just wants some ability to respond as a last resort. Sorta the same reason so many of us have carried for  years-  a last ditch option. And he is not going to walk around with it under his raincoat! Ha Ha! I guess I will have to take a look at some of these things just for the heck of it.  To me they have always appeared to be a plastic shooting appliance. I have no use for one and no interest in buying one. There are other options and I certainly do not consider them to be decent hunting weapons,  although I know the younger generation does.
    • I've got $100 that says it's the diaphragm, like I first said. Put yer hand under the carb input are where your line and diaphragm are. Pump that bulb hard. if you get a drop or two of gas leaking out there, you DO have a hole or tiny tear. Pumping it up makes it run better at high speed and /or brings up idle is the telltale sign.
    • Thanks for the input guys.  When the bulb is pumped up it does run fine at high RPM's after a little bit.  I can hear/feel it want to kick in all the way and then it goes fine.  So sometimes it hesitates just a little bit before jumping up to full RPM's.  Of course the boat is on the lift at the cabin so this weekend I will check the size of the lines under the cowl so I can buy some of those along with some other parts.  I will have to decide if I trailer it home or work on it up at the lake when I am there for a week in mid June.  Thanks again for some direction.
    • Whole weekend cheats yes I agree even with ideal weight but one cheat meal a week I feel is ok If you are maintaining your calorie deficit for everything else. I feel like this is actually a good thing because when you are in a calorie deficit your bodies metabolism actually will slow down as your leptin levels drop to conserve energy. Having one cheat meal will temporarily raise your levels.  Now your cheat meal should be sensible still something with carbs and protein think burger or philly cheese steak sandwich pizza with sausage two or 3 slices not the whole pizza.   Fasted cardio before your cheat meal is also recommended         Anyway like others have said before being in a calorie deficit is the way to lose weight You need to find your calorie maintenance level then ideally cut 500 calories a day below that this will get you around 1lb of fat a week loss. Weigh yourself ONCE a week in the morning and track your progress give it 3 weeks before you evaluate and see if the calorie deficit you are at is right if you gained or stayed the same weight take more calorie off your daily intake. Being in a 500 calorie deficit is the most important part exercise comes second when adding exercise this is going to add to the daily calorie you burn so if without exercise you calorie deficit to lose weight was at 2500 calories with exercise it might be 2700 calories a day.   When cutting or anytime really clean foods are #1 in my book if it doesn't spoil in a week I don't eat it Think chicken, broccoli, green beans, peppers, sweet potatoes, green beans, turkey blah blah   You should also count your Macronutrients which are carbs protein and fat Ideally when cutting  10-30% carbs, 40-50% protein, 30-40% fat  
    • Have you had a chance to use your new Garmin Ref? Any feedback to share... 
    • Now that Dems are out of the majority I am seeing big sales on black guns. I would think you could get a better modern rifle than the bushmaster for a very reasonable price right now. 
    • "Because he lives in a high tension area" ... "high capacity"....    This one sounds like trouble just waiting to happen.
    • check for crack in the boot between the motor and the carb. get it started squirt some carb cleaner on the boot if the rpm goes up there is a leak.   
    • just spotted one. yay ! LOL
