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.

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.

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.

What's up with "up to" as a sped rating? Makes believe that you won't see 360 out of the Monster XLR8.

The Reezen 6.5 is $760 here, I bet the Reezen 7.0 will be the same.

Hey when you get a chance throw that Reezen 6.5 on a draw board and measure the DL.(if you wouldn't mind. Please)Just curious if the DL's still run long?? And by how much?

I agree they do have some great target bows, but if they don't come out with a new target bow this year it makes two years in a row without a target bow. Unless you count the LD as a target bow. I would think they are missing out on the target bow market. Even if they came out with something that is just a little bit different it would most likely sell. But to come out with nothing, I think they are losing out on this market.

But to come out with nothing, I think they are losing out on this market.
oh, I agree with you completly......I am waiting for the PrestigeII

Not so, see for yourself. AVS system is pretty trick. As far as the past parallel limbs you can't really make them look much different, a past parallel limb is a past parallel limb. Watch the vid.

I shot a 28" yesterday and it felt comfortable to me, I shoot a 29" draw. I'm curious what the tape says as well.

Default 2009 stuff

Shot the 2009 mathews last night and didn't like it. The string had a buzz in it. It didn't have any string dampners. i could feel the string buzz for about 5 seconds just holding it after the shot. I don't even remember which mathews it was but didn't like it. After shooting a captain and ross and 101 and 82nd and hoyt ultratec and my marquis, constitution. The captain has won the contest on feel and shoots nice. Seen a swat shoot last night and shoots pretty good and he didn't like the mathews either compared to swat. I like the dead in the had feel after shot. My constitution is the smoothest but different application. Waiting for the sentinel to come out. Sorry about the bad review but had a pretty good mix of bows the play with. The Ross is the worst on the feel in the hand after shot. lots of vibe in hand.
