    Went into the archery shop by the house today to check on my girlfriends bow I ordered for her a while back.Well he had a bunch of the new Mathews Triax bows out on display.Wouldn't you know he had a left handed one ready to shoot too.I haven't shot Mathews in years but after shooting it,I ordered one :7up:.Probably the quietest shock free bow I have ever shot.Why did I have to shoot the dang thing,I couldn't just leave it alone.

    I have been thinking about a new target model, but will need to sell a couple of others first.

    Yeah my shoulder is toast luckily I'm left eye dominant so I have switched to left handed in the past with success.Im going lefty fro here on out it's way easier to shoot left handed with my bad left shoulder than holding the bow in left hand and shooting right handed.Hope yours heals,mine never will probably and it's fairly painful.Probably shoot this bow from now till crossbow :) lol

    I bought a Halon 32 last year and shot the Triax about a month ago...Mathews has really put out some great bows last few years...Have a Z7xtreme also so the shorter ata is nice..

    What's the price tag on the new bow?
    By the way, I went to the Vegas Shoot this weekend. 3500 shooters. I was just watching. Those guys are machines. Never miss. The winner took home $52000, shooting of all things a Martin. Imagine that.

    Fully rigged out with Spot Hog 1 pin,Mathews quiver,QAD rest,and some custom color combo and colored servings is gonna be around the $1400 ball park.I went with black limbs and the ridge reaper forest colored riser.Looked pretty neat and different.I usually go all black or all normal camo but decided for something different

    One more thing the new crossbows and new compounds have in common, a price tag that falls in around $1500.... :D

    Congrats on the new Deer Gigger... Mathews did such a nice job on my last one, never did see a reason to replace it... Until I bought the sub1 last week, and it's not really replacing my Reezen, it's just augmenting my arsenal. :D

    Naw if you gonna go crossbow you gotta go all out and get the $2200 units like the Ravin lol,gotta be able to shoot 70 yards at least :banging:

    I don't think I'll buy another bow for a long time.I use to get one every few years and order one from my buddy in Missouri and then the next bow I would buy back home and vice versa.Try to give both my friends my business.This bow unfortunately may be the end of bow purchases for me it shoots that good :)

    call me a fanboy but I haven't felt comfortable for 6 years since I parted ways with my last Mathews bow. I have been shooting a bunch of different bows for the last couple years wanting to switch, but I am ordering the Triax very soon!!!

    You won't regret it,I shot it without a stabilizer cause I wanted to feel the bow when I shot and check for any hints of hand shock.There aren't any,it's amazing and it is stupid fast

    you really wouldn't even need a stabilizer.

    The original purpose of a stabilizer is to steady the bow while aiming... shock absorption was something added in later.
    A lot of hunting stabilizers are just too short to “steady” the bow so yea, those shorties are probably better used for shock than anything.
