    Default Mathews Monster and Tom Crowe

    I was told Tom shot 16 up with a 80lb Mathews monster shooting at 364 fps in Nelsonville.

    No telling how heavy his arrow was!
    Now thats one fast bow and Tom one heck of a shooter.

    I was grouped with Tom a couple of years ago, and he was shooting the 2613's at 80 lbs then as well... different bow same results... I can tell you that when he shot last, he didn't get bounced out of the 12 ring like most of us do...

    Yep, Brian Goza shot the Monster in PMF(Pro Male Fingers), won this weekend, and shot it in the previous IBO, and shot one of his best scores ever.

    Yep,

    I've shot Gene's too. It's pretty much the only way to do it without crushing your fingers.

    It's one thing to see Tom Crowe do well with a XLR8 in Senior Pro release, but when fingers shooters use a Monster with a 6 inch brace height and do well, there must be a forgiving nature to the technology Matt McPherson has developed for these bows.

    What is it about the new design of the Monster and XLR8 that makes them forgiving enough to be used by the Pros...and winning with them?

    Is it the inner cam design?...

    Is it the way the cables balance the load?

    Speed bow and winning are words you don't see used together very often when it comes to big shoots like Nelsonville.

    Your thoughts on the mechanics of the technology used to produce these bows?...mac

    Its the shooter...not the bow that wins tournaments. The bow can only do what its told, its up to the shooter to execute the perfect shot.

    Honestly, from a finger shooter, the fact that it works as well as it does kinda defies most logic. At least as to what factors apply to shooting fingers setup and arrow.

    Another theory I've heard as to why(fingers anyway), it works so well is the "dead spot" of sorts between the wall and when the power stroke takes over, somewhere in between there, the normal interferences or influences placed on the string, arrow and bow are canceled, reduced or corrected making for great arrow flight from what traditionally, made no sense.

    To a point yes, but there comes a point when an equipment change produces a needed edge. Even if it is simply confidence gained from shooting one particular bow, arrow, release, sight etc over another.

    not to mention you can time the cams for that one finger under pretty easy... something you can't do on other cam systems... and get level nock travel... makes shooting a bunch easier...
