    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....

    NO ......if i had done the same review on the Switchback it would haveonly recieved a 9, basically because the grip would have recieved a 2 :biggrin1:

    and i wouldnt give up that bow for any amount money....it will be my hunting bow for a few years to come.....:rockon:

    I just figured that with how bad Bowman's typing skill are that he meant to type lower numbers and just missed :laugh:

    You Mathews shooters sure are a strange group :doh:

    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! :laugh:

    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....:laugh:

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

    See I was in complete agreement all the way through the Blueberry Ovation (all the cool kids shoot blueberry ovations)

    but being jealous because you went to see Clapton? I mean he is a great musician but getting jealous over it :noidea:
