    Default 2009 Mathews

    The Reezen 7.0 is calling my name!! Though not super impressed w/ the looks or specs of the Monster XLR8 but I'll wait to judge when they arrive in shops.
    Be good or be good at it.

    I will be honest, I was anxious to see what mathews was coming out with. I have a hard time shooting a bow with less then 35 inch axle to axle, because I my draw is 30 inches. These new bows don't have that, and such a short brace height. Maybe I need to go shoot one, just to see, I won't know until I try.

    Prices should be interesting.

    Wow!! Those are nice... Cams look just like HF Cams. I wanna shoot one to see what 5" brace is like too. Was wondering when they were going to jump ship and start making 2 cam bows. Good for them.... Should have done it along time ago though. But they will sell a ton of them..

    I'm kinda disappointed. even though I'm a Bowtech guy, I was hoping for some new technology to push the entire archery industry forward. I was looking for either a new limb material or something radical that would get 360 out of a bow at a decent brace height. instead it's dual cams and a 5" brace height. I guess we really have topped out the speed with current technology.

    I hope the Mathews guys dont take this as a bash. the new bows look nice and I'm sure they shoot fine, but I was hoping for something really new.

    What we all fail to understand, year to year is this; bow manufacturers probably, very well have the materials, technology and design to produce a 400 fps bow... now, or 5 years back.

    But

    There's always a but...

    They and many other industries learned alot from the technology industry, and a few others. It's called "Planned Obsolescence".

    Why releas the absolute pinnacle of those three element now, when they know that the consumer has and will continue to "upgrade" year after year. And it works.

    Definition from Wikki:
    For an industry, planned obsolescence stimulates demand by encouraging purchasers to buy again sooner if they still want a functioning product. Built-in obsolescence is in many different products, from vehicles to light bulbs, from buildings to software. There is, however, the potential backlash of consumers who learn that the manufacturer invested money to make the product obsolete faster; such consumers might turn to a producer, if any, which offers a more durable alternative.

    Based on a post I saw on another forum. I think it is the Reezen 6.5. I've been trying to get on the mathews website all morning but it's dead. The traffic killed it.

    I want more info on the monster bows and what kind of cams they have. I'm surprised to see a dual/hybrid cam on a mathews bow but they had to do something to keep up with the Jones'

    The monster looks a quite a bit like the X Force.....Cams look the same and so does the limb configuration......

    They have had it a lot longer than that. I saw a post from Terry Martin that described 400 fps bows in the early 80's.

    The problem with them is that they were very unpleasant to shoot. The draw was extremely harsh with the full peak weight starting at about 1" of draw and continuing until the last half inch where it dropped off suddenly to around 30 to 40% letoff. Brace height was about 3". I've never shot anything like this, but it seems a recipe for blown shoulders.

    Bow designers have understood what it takes to get to 400 fps for many years. The advances that we've seen in recent years are from keeping bows fast and making them smooth enough for the average archer to handle it. After all they have to design bows that will sell and not ruin too many shoulders.

    Exactly, I have shot some of "those" bows, and no, they were not pleasant at all.

    I was really disappointed in the new line, seems as though the copied the PSE Xforce line all the way to the speed nocks on the string. I guess their new moto will be "We'll catch up some day, if we can". Just was hoping for more out of them.

    somebody on AT said they thought it was, and that they called it part of the McPherson series, so I was half right........
