I just got back from sheels this eve. I shot the mathews monster and holy shinkys!!! talk about a smooth shooting bow and quiet to. This one weighed in at like six pounds with all the sight quiver ect. By far the niced bow i have ever laid hands on a little spendy ,but if had the cash i know what i would be purchasing.

The one at sheels is around $850. Its deffinitly worth stopping in there to shoot it if you have some spare time.

i own a matthews reezen and like it alot. FAST, smooth, holds well, has a bit of vibration and hand shock but with a STS and stabalizer its all gone now. Alot of people are bashing these bows but its becasue matthews shooters in the past are use to the butter smooth switchback and dxt and so on. Yeah the reezen pulls back a bit harder but the power has to come from somewhere and it still is a single cam bow so for me i found it to be smooth. and when i can have a 26 inch draw and fling an arrow around 290 or more and still keep a good group you dang right im a happy customer!!

8 point, do explain why? Just interested more than anything on your opinion why? I own a DXT and have no complaints whatsoever. Anyone out there shot the Monster yet?! Opinions?!

Can someone explain the monster to me? 2 cams now right? Any major issues now with keeping them "in tune" now or has Mathews come up with some way of having a two cam working like a single (if you get what I'm saying)?

It's my understanding that they came up with the Monster as a flat out speed bow. For some reason there's still people out there who thinks nothing else matters.

Even Matt McPherson himself came out as saying he wasn't much impressed but figured he had to have something to go up against the other bows that are marketing pure speed over anything else.

I have talked to a couple of guys that have shot the Monster, and they like it, although i think it is a little more work to tune due to the dual cams. I guess I would rather go with the REEZEN over the increased speed of the MONSTER.

Funny how things work, Matthews leading the charge for a long time, then PSE comes out with a smoking new set-up and then a follower.. Yes I shoot a PSE.

Not trying to start anything, but this is the way it is...

I think the reason Mathews decided to go with the dual cam bow was because there were people out there complaining that Mathews did not have a speed bow. I believe this is one of the reasons they decided to go with the dual cam. I think that Mathews has an excellent product in the Solo cam line of bows. Just had to market a product that would satisfy the SPEED GUYS

    • So our bear friend came back today and she brought somebody with her. It might be time to quit feeding the birds sunflower seeds until next fall.  
    • I picked up that double bag deal about a month ago at Home Depot here in Sioux Falls. Ironically it was the same weekend we had the big April snow storm.
    • I see Home Depot advertising for Memorial day but no Kingsford double bag on sale. Has anyone seen any on sale anywhere? I am down to my last bag and need to stock up, Memorial weekend is usually the time to do it.
    • Found a cardinal nest in one of my shrub bushes. Cute little gray fuzzy things. I tried to take a picture, but my camera phone sucks, and I didn’t want to bother them. I’m so glad I spent $20 on a cardinal nest box, only to have it sit empty.

    • Wisconsin's turkeys have survived my visit this year.  One is surely deaf after I managed to miss at 18 paces as he walked past me...  Not sure how that happened...   I feel like I rushed the shot when he started to get nervous.  Passed one jake the first morning that I could have taken at 40yd.   Came very close on two other mature gobblers.   One picked me off as he came around a hay pile at 20yd and immediately turned and ran, very smart bird.   The other came in hot, but decided to do a circle around me.  Appeared at 30yd wide open to my side while I was aiming down the sights towards his last gobble, and I had no chance to turn and shoot...  
    • Mentored for the Mn DNR women's Turkey hunt on Fri night and Sat morning. Friday was quiet but the birds flew up within 40 yards af the blind so we were hopefull for what the morning would bring. Sat morning was quiet and I waited till shooting hours to make my first yelps which were immediately cut off by 4 different birds. My lady was excited to say the least. She had never seen a turkey in the wild growing up and living in iron range.  Two of the toms gobbled a little after fly down but I could tell the were going north. The other 2 that were to our east gobbled a bit but shut up but sounded like the were coming down the road towards us. After about 20 minutes they rolled a big triple gobble within 60 yards wondering where this hen was at. I gave them a few purrs and set the call down getting her ready and calming her down for the shot. We still had not seen them put I could hear that unmistakable sound,pfffft boooom. Now I'm getting excited because I know they are danger close but they are on the side we can not see. Like always they proved me a fool and instead of coming right up the little road the cut through a high spot in the swamp and pop out in the field at 30 yards. They immediately hit full strut and throw a huge gobble right in our face and directly at my decoy that is set up at 8 yards. Then instead of coming right in they circle the decoy and blind at 25 yards and go to the side of the blind that is closed and gobble and strut for 15 min finally working into 8 to 10 yards bit still won't come towards the decoy. So I shut the one blind window and get her moved for a shot. The birds are now at 18 yards but getting skittish and moving away. As soon as I get the window open I hear her string drop and whay sounded like a hollow feathery smack and she says she got it. I look up and the birds are still there and look just a little nervous so I hit the call and they gobble back so I know it was a miss. So close but it was so much fun. Those 2 birds hung out for a few hours after strutting and gobbling at everything. 
    • Great bird, way to keep at it.
    • Nice bird, good job!
    • I assuming you are putting on the 5/16 T & G? I pushed mine tight and face nailed. Two nails per stud
