Mathews DXT

Recommended Posts

Ask if you can shoot the bow if they have an indoor range. I know they let you shoot up here in Warroad. At least they let me when I got my last bow. I could go in there now and shoot one but then I would want to buy it and last time I did that I did end up buying it. Posta be a light set up as far as weight goes even with a quiver on it. My SQ2 will have to do for now. Good luck

I'm still shooting my MQ1 and it's time. Funny part is, it still takes a few deer every year so I'm not quite sure why I need a new one.

I guess its time.

I was totally in that boat Tom. My current bow does the job, so why upgrade?

I did shoot the DXT. It's a pretty nice bow. Its plenty fast, but not the fastest. Its very smooth draw with a little bit of shock and vibe. Obviously thats to be expected with the faster bows. I've shot one bare and one with all the stabs and everything and they do quiet down pretty easily.

My negative for the new DXT were that its 29" ATA and that seems really short in my hands. I also do not like the grip. Its still way too fat. It looks nice but I like a thin, flat grip.

I was able to shoot it just fine, but it didn't wow me.

You and I both know the great folks at Cabin Fever will help you try anything you like. They carry Hoyt now so make sure and shoot the Katera. That was my second choice behind the PSE X-Force that I bought. Good luck.

Shot it at the whitetail expo in Owatonna last March. Loved it, but still like my Switchback XT just as much. I'm not sure how much I cared for the very narrow limbs. I thought the grip was thinner than my XT, but still plenty fat.

Surpised your looking now Harvey. You've only got a month before opener. Better get crackin.... Good luck and let us know what you pick up.

The DXT is nice but there are 3 others I'd put ahead of it. The switchback xt, the drenalin, and the s2. Hate the mathews grip. Put a torqueless on if you can. Personally, I like the mathews switchback xt the best of the bows I mentioned.

You may want to check out the bowtech lineup as well. The guardian is probably the softest shooter out there.

I have the Mathews Drenalin and love it. I got it after the season and got one heck of a deal on it for getting a "Carry Over" bow. I have small hands and love the grip but I could see if you have bigger hands where it wouldn't fit as good. Biggest problem that I have had with the new THIN design is that you have to have your grip the same every time and if I change up my grip I can change from hitting eggs to barely hitting the target. I am glad I got the Drenaline but I think if a Switchback would have been an option I would have taken that one instead.

My son purched a Drenalin last season and sold his Switchback. It took awhile but he is shooting very well with it.

I shot the DXT today and purchased one.

Cool! Have fun setting it up and getting it to drive tacks for you. I used to hate that phase of the game, but now I really enjoy it. I hope it works out great for you and slays a big ol' buck for you this Fall.

Cabin Fever is setting it all up. I just need to learn to shoot it well. That will be the hard part as I'm not real religious in practing.

I hope you didn't pay more than $699 for it. If you did you missed out on a really good sale. wink I won't mention where but last weekend the dxt was 699 and the drenalin was 649.

    • I should’ve looked closer - I have an eyes open pic too. 😌  Tough to tell sometimes on my phone screen.  
    • Among other wilds that have moved into our urban areas, we can now add loons.  There is a breeding pair on the lake formerly known as Calhoun, mostly staying on the west and northwest sides.  But there is also a bunch of yearlings fishing the east side, numbering maybe six or seven and so unafraid that they come right up to the 36th Street dock and try to steal suckers being used for musky bait.  Maybe the call of the wild is not really so alien to the South side of Minneapolis, but it looks like the loons have moved in and can be heard calling from time to time. 
    • Sounds like you guys gave her heck up there to find them. I'd be praying thanks, too if I got that one on! ☺️
    • Quick recap:   Weather was too darn “nice”!  Upper 80’s - 90’s; no wind to speak of; mostly sunny. Water temps were anywhere from 64 - 71 depending on location and day.   We looked the lake over from end to end, marking up our map and returning to some places where we saw fish either later the same day or a couple days later.  We could literally see the transition from spawn to post spawn happening during our stay.  Being new to both muskie fishing and that lake, we spent time in dead water as much as good water but feel like we got a pretty good handle on how to go about setting up a more efficient return visit.  It was a lot work and long hours but I’d go back this weekend if I could so I must’ve enjoyed it.   A few pics as hoped for:
    • big dave 2 and leech, darn good lookin meals!!!!  Dave have a good weekend!!!!
    • Ok Dave have a good weekend. Hope you get over the whole butt hurt Leech deal! Not sure where you got that I don't like folks smoking or grilling things?  I know I do enough. Have fun! 🙂  
    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
