This bow is the cream of the crop. Harvested a doe with it the day after I set it up on the last day of the season here. Wisper quiet, ultra light, fairly fast, shock free, and very maneuverable.

i think mathews is running out of ideas on how to build a really productive bow. all the helium is a revamped z7. they shaved a little weight made it look cheaper and charged more for it over the z7. go figure. lol
