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

    • I think just about anything can be smoked. would be easy to get the crappies over dry. they turned out great using the technique above. dang near as good as smoked eggs!  
    • Raised beds, you hear people talk about them but what are they? Depending on how much money you want to spend on material and dirt a raised bed can be just a couple 2x8’s nailed together to waist high beds that you don’t need to bend over to work. Now that waist high one will with dirt is going to cost you some compared to the shallow 2x8 bed. Either way a raised bed does some or all of the following things. It eliminates the need for tilling, as you never step into the bed thus compacting it. When you fill the bed it allows you too put clean dirt exactly where you want it, not on the paths between beds where you walk and never plant. Weed control is much easier. Containing the crop you are growing is much easier. Harvesting is much easier. You can add fertilizer taylor made for the crop you are growing not fertilizing the entire garden that maybe 30% of that you walk on and don’t grow in.   The last few years I have been switching to low raised beds and container growing. A typical 4x8 bed takes twenty bags of dirt to fill or about 500#’s the beds are so fluffy that I can turn them over with my hand or just a little rake. This season I am going to add three more beds which will give me total of 11 and over 50 five gallon containers. Of course if room is not a problem then traditional planting stills works just fine especially for spuds and melons and squash. Just offering other ideas.
    •   But yet Christians claim they do.....  
    •   The one I made called for cumin. I think next time I might do something in between my recipe and this one.
    • I always thought smoking was for more fattier fish such as lake trout, salmon, suckers, whitefish and the like?
    •     This sounds good. Gonna have to try it   Plus the emphasis on vegetables in most Chilis
    • Buy the best door you can afford. I installed a steel clad Peach Tree door on the front of my place mainly because it faces south and there is a big temp difference during the day. I paid 600.00 for it, not much for a door these days but thirty years ago I had the father in law scratching his head when we put it in. My back door is out of the sun and I went with an all glass Morgan door, 300.00 I think it was still looks almost brand new after all of these years. Love the light that it lets it. Both have adjustable thresholds and we keep an eye on the weather-stripping. Stay away from the box store bargain doors unless it is rental property. Another thing is don't go cheap on the lock sets, you get what you pay for. Also reinforce the jam on the lock side while you are replacing the door.
    • Xlake area got about 6" of fluffy stuff, I am told, but I wasn't up this weekend. Looks like Tuesday might add a few more. I might still be able to ride yet
