    What is your take on the better fit for a 3D bow?

    I was leaning toward the prestige but I can get a good deal on an Apex 7 too. Decisions decisions.....:peace:

    I was directing at BHH, he is going off half corked again......

    now what type of shooting will you be doing w/it?? just 3d?
     
  7. I bet you'll LOVE the Prestige for 3D! It's a smoker!

    I shoot one in 28.5 and love it.

    I had an A7, which I got pissed at and sold too early...I will have another but it will be an indoor bow.......The Prestige rules outdoors...

    Yeah, mainly for outdoor and indoor 3D, I may give it a go for spots but I don't know if I'll have the time to shoot both series this winter.

    The Prestige would be a real smoker for me at 29" but it just does not fit me at all. So the way I see it is shoot the one that feels best for you.

    so here is my answer and my reasons.....

    in 3d, speed is not everything but it helps.....

    you have a 27.5" draw........hmmmm like me....:p

    I personally would go w/a Prestige at this point as you will never get near 300fps w/your short dino arms( i have the same problem) on an Apex7......

    I had my prestige right at 300fps....27.5 inch draw, 61 pounds....320 grain arrow

    The Prestige is an awsome 3d bow......its light enough to add weight where you want it.....

    the Apex 7 or Conquest 4 for indoor spots.....

    Thats the problem, being LH I don't have the luxury of shooting all the diff. models. The only LH bow @ proshops I can find is usually a Drenalin. It would be nice to try before you buy, but theres not much turn around for guys I guess to order one and then not have a buyer. :frusty:

    What do you think the FPS would the Prestige be at 70# @ 27.5"

    well with 61 pounds and a 320 grain arrow I am getting 300

    I am 15 grains over so if you went w/a 350gr arrow....you might see 304 305.....MAYBE a BIG maybe.....

    Why 70 lbs??

    Why shoot second best???

    Get yourself a Scepter IV, slap mag limbs and nitrous "X" cams on it and don't look back.....:peace:

    Sure, the zombified masses will make fun of you and call you a cool-aid drinking fanboy, but at least you'll be without plastic bushings and that old school cable guard thingy......:laugh:

    I had an A7 and didn't really like it. I liked the C4 much better.....:cool:

    With my Conquest 4, using 80% let off, set at 64lbs, I was shooting 294fps with a 326g arrow.

    With the A7, I was shooting around 60lbs with 65% letoff. Same arrow was around 290fps.

    I was holding fewer lbs at full draw with the C4 and getting more speed. The C4 comes closer to shooting the advertised IBO speeds than any other Mathews bow....IMO of course....:biggrin1:
