So i went to my local archery shop today and shot each of the new 2010 Hoyt Bows and all the new 2010 Matthews bows today..

First of all I will have to say that I have NEVER been a fan of Matthews bows.. and when I started shooting the newest models from this year I was highly disappointed once again.. that is UNTIL i got the Z7 in my hand... And i am here to tell ya that this z7 may change my mind about Matthews all together.. Every other bow they released by Matthews this year was terrible IMO but the z7 was an amazing bow!!

After I shot the Matthews bows I began to shoot Hoyts 2010 line up.. Starting with the Alphaburner.. The alphaburner is crap.. Dont waste your money.. When I started shooting the Maxxis 31 i was in awe of how smooth it felt once the shot was fired.. I literally felt nothing when the arrow left the bow.. Very slick..

So here is my dilemna.. I cant decide which one of these bows to purchase in the near future.. I have always told myself that I would never own a Matthews bow because I truly thought they all were crap.. The z7 is truly the first bow I have shot by Matthews that I really thought was a great bow.. The Maxxis was also an amazing shooting bow.. The main difference in the two I noticed was that the z7 had a smoother draw than the maxxis while the maxxis had a smoother release than the z7 .... hhhmmmm choices..

Ford or Chevy. Both good and both personal preference.:pop:

Shot the Hoyt Carbon Matrix. Not worth the $1600 they want for it for sure unless you plan to run over your bow with a truck:hysterical::hysterical::hysterical:

[rquote=1492811&tid=104259&author=twn417]Well the z7 is smother on the draw and faster on the release. That would seal the deal for me![/rquote]

Yes but the Maxxis is smoother on the release!!

why is the alpha burner crap in your eyes may i ask.

I had a feeling the alpha burner wouldnt go over well, its a shooters bow. That cam design is way smoother but its a 70 percent let off cam. I drive tacks with my alpha burner, but i shoot every day.

what did you not like about it

[rquote=1492868&tid=104259&author=Bowhunter4life]o and to be clear, im not bashing your opinion, just wanted to know exzactly why you would call it crap, with no stated reasons
[/rquote]

Guess i should have stated my reasons..lol.. my bad.. well IMO it was no different than shooting my old 2000 model Reflex Prowler.. It just didnt feel smooth on the draw nor the release to me.. It was fast however, very fast.. I just felt like i wouldnt be bettering my bow selction from what i have now because it literally felt no different to me.. but thats just my opinion..

My daughter's boyfriend bought the Hoyt Maxxis 31 and he's loving it.

I guess if you've always hated the Mathews, then don't change.

Just sayin.....

[rquote=1493463&tid=104259&author=20 feet high]so the Matthews D2 was no good?[/rquote]

Is the D2's out yet? I have not been to a shop with one yet

I think it's based off the Drenalin right?
