Default My take on the Conquest Triumph

As much as I’ve despised parallel limbed bows in the past; refusing to even shoot them because of the “dead” feeling on the shot I’ve got to say Mathews hit a homerun with the Triumph.

Somehow Mathews has managed to combine the long riser, parallel limbs and speed into a very smooth drawing, fast shooting 39” A2A bow with the effective string angle of a much longer bow and still give the shooter a taste of feedback on the shot.

The Triumph has the speed of the Prestige for those of us afflicted with shorter draws, and the stability of the Apex and Conquest 4, while being light enough for you to add weight where you want it without breaking your back…

Although the 65% cams might not please everyone, I draw with my back and pull through the shot actively and so have no trouble with the short valley and hard wall. I can see where a “waiter” or arm shooter would hate the new 65% cams and the 80% let-off and lesser holding weight might be more comfortable for their type of shot…

All in all this bow holds and shoots like a dream, with no fighting the level; the bow sits still throughout the shot.

And let’s not forget the Focus grip… folks this ain’t a homerun… it’s a GRAND SLAM in the 9th of the 7th game of the World Series…


I’m thinking I’m in love again...

I think this bow is light years ahead of the "dead" parallel limbed bows I've tried and rejected in the past.. This bow reacts to the shot much like a conventional bow...but holds better than any bow I've ever shot.. it is a pleasure to shoot...

Time has no officially stood still. Javi shooting a Mathews and liking it.

I'm really starting to like mine as well. It did take a bit to get used to the 65% cam though. It's been a while since I shot a spiral type valley.

Liking it, may be too mild a description... I want to have kids with it...

the 65% cam is okay..you gotta have the bow in your draw length..its gotta fit ya...the 65 cam will not allow to shoot it with a to long a draw...

No hunter?
Thats crazy talk. Any bow that shoots good for you is a hunter. Color or shine or sound is easily delt with.

When I started archery a 64" bow was considered a short bow...

Ok - I just mean't thats not what it was designed or marketed for, I wouldn't be asking if I didn't think it would be any good.....

I'm really beginning to like the Triumph. My only complaint if there is any.... The draw length was perfect on the 29" 65%. This is actually a problem for me. I typically shoot between 29-1/4 & 29-3/8 depending on the release.

Mathews cams typically run long so I thought getting a 29 would be perfect for me. I've been told the 80% cam is running a little longer but I like the way the 65% is shooting right now.

I like the 65 cam better than the 80...80 is to soft/spongy for me...I have mine set at 28.5 (dead on) 63.8 lbs shot a 404 grain arrwow at 269 so... I gotta lightend the arrow up some to reach asa speeds.

Bow is quiet. dead as a hammer, no shock or vibration...I have yet to put a sight on the bow, but will tomarrow after I return home from school(my job)

I think the bow is going to hold and aim good...plan on shooting it this weekend see how It does.

Chris, mine was just over 1/8" long right out of the box with no tuning.. it easily made 28.5" with the 28" cam

I've just twisted the cable up a bit to get me some more length out of it.
