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

    • little early fer that fish aint it!!!!!! I wanna see pictures of you camping come tomorrow morning when da blizzard comes thru!!!!!!!!!!!! nice pictures though!!!!!!!!!!!
    • If I understand correctly this only for bows. I have a crossbow and from what I understand it is considered a firearm. Is that the case? My son has a bow and has the archery tag.
    • so ... dillon has a bird to enter and 1957 is still hunting? looks like we are in good shape, but lot of guys still hunting in MN and WI, i assume   ended my season friday. got the blind set up before the shower started. it quit right before sunrise time and there was lots of gobbling on the roost a couple hundred yards away but none where i heard them close by when scouting a couple days earlier. a few distant gobbles on the ground, then nothing after the rain and wind picked up again. finally saw a hen step out of the woods about 830 and start heading toward me. soft yelps kept her coming, then out steps a big tom and several more hens heading my way but when they got to an opening in the fence from the stalk field into another timber, the tom paused, i had the bead on him, decided it was too far, and then they were gone the rain quit a half hour later and i ramped up the calling with some louder yelps and cutts. a few minutes later a head comes over a rise in the field and its a solo tom. he ignored the dekes and headed toward the fence gap where the others went, stopped and fanned without gobbling, but some soft yelps, clucks and purrs kept him coming my way. dropped him at 40 yards after stepping it off to where he lay, i kept going to where the other tom left the field and it was 55 big steps, so glad i didnt shoot went 23, 10, 1 but the rain cut loose again on the way back to the truck so i didnt take pictures  
    • If you were anywhere close to southern Minny I would invite you over and let you drive mine and show you the things I look for both in the jeep and plow since mine seems pretty close to what you are looking for. If you have any questions PM me.
    • Good luck PFUNK! Looking like that will be my next day out too. forecast looks good as well!
    • I think the TJ might be the best choice with the 4.0 which is what I did.I bought the plow used after the fact. I got the plow for 1200 but the wiring was not good nor was the mount so I had a new custom, heavier duty mount made at a fab shop and I bought a brand new wiring kit from Western. I also bought all stainless bolts for it so there are no rust issues with them. Wiring the plow was a task. I basically had to remove the entire interior including console, seats and many dash parts to run the wiring.   One thing to consider- There is really very little room for much of anything in them. Running new wires, adding a speaker anywhere or even having 2 guys, 2 guns, a dog and a cooler is a tight fit. The back seat works for kids but not adults and mostly I take my back seat out so I have at least some room to put stuff. Running the wiring to run the plow took probably 8 hours or more spread over a few days and for a bigger guy it's pretty much impossible to reach under the dash and run wires,connect to fuse blocks even with the seat removed.    But the ability to take off the top and cruise the gravel roads with no doors while hunting is not possible in basically any other vehicle except maybe a Manx Dune buggy which has also been on my bucket list and those aren't 4x4. 
    • Anyfish is correct,I will add you can buy a archery tag and hunt the entire rest of the season in any turkey zone.
