Default reveiws on the Prestige.....

all ratings are on a scale of 1-10.....

over all fit and finish= 10....attention to detail was first and foremost

weight = 8....its good but a tad heavier would have done the bow a little more justice, but that is my opinion, because of what feels good in my hand

color = 10.....you cant really mess up black, the flatter black is real nice, why mathews does not make this a standard option on all bows is beyond me

grip or lack there of = 8....its going to take some getting use to....I can see it being a problem at those December/January 3D's,....but I am liking it more and more every day

draw cycle = 7....is a little rough on the shoulders, but the 65%letoff doesnt give you that harsh drop off

holding on target = 10....the thing is like a rock, the pin just sits there

balance = 10.....the bow right out of the box in an open hand just rests there w/no movement back or forth

accuracy = 10...I have had it for 4 days now and have split 2 shafts, no longer shooting at the same dot

hand shock = cant give it a number, there is none???

vibration = 9.....while there is very little its not a Switchback....I added a STS and the vibration is all but gone

noise = 5....its not quite to say the least but I am also shooting minimum weight arrows, its not a hunting bow for me so I really could care less about noise

Speed = 10...I cant wait to put this thing thru the chrono, its smokin

So overall I give the bow a 8.5....now in a few months I may write this review again, but it wouldnt be a first impression review then would it
I am really impressed w/the way this thing shoots, and am looking foward to shooting it for a while....

I have an '06 Allegiance I use for hunting but I recently bought a very nicely kept used '06 Mathews Ovation. I'm loving that Ovation for sure. I was a little bit partial to Bowtech having had 3 Diamond/Bowtech bows but I'll tell ya one thing that the Ovation is very nice. Oh, and STS on order from Chris/Kris...

No I can pretty much confirm that it is the bow... these Ovations are awesome and I know I still suck but my scores are respectable so its gotta be the bow!

You know I was going to say that but I'm glad you did and humiliated yourself instead of me humiliating myself. I get enough of that from my shooting buddies....

Although, they are jealous of my Blueberry Ovation... And the fact that I went to the Eric Clapton concert last night.
Kind of like "Yeah, but I slept in a Holiday Inn Express last night" thing...

If you guys have issues with the grips being cold, try the Sims Tenacle Wraps or Sims Insulator Wraps for the grip. They come black or camo, smooth or WITH NODES, FOR ADDED PLEASURE.
They really work, especially on those cold days in the woods, and soften the points of contact against the web of the hand. I shoot with them all year around.

Not cold, they are just way to big! They make it hard to keep from torqueing the bow.
