Has anybody shot one? None of the reviews say anything about the valley or back wall. I shoot a z7 extreme and like it, but the valley is non existent and back wall is not solid. When I up grade I wanna bow that will address these two issues
I spent the last 3 weeks with it. Never did understand how people who have never shot, or even seen the bow (since it was released today) can trash it. Always seems silly to me. BTW - the bow was terrific and we did an honest review of it. Better than Triax in most regards, and equal to Vertix in everything except draw cycle which was a little sharper than the Vertix but that's' because the Vertix is longer. I also tend to like a longer bow, but I have to be honest - the last two 28" A2A, 6" BH bows have been fun to shoot and did not magnify any form issues at all. I really shot it well.
No idea what the angle is - probably steep. My draw is not long (27) so I can shoot them just fine. If I had a 30" draw it would likely be a non-starter. It's perfect for tight stands and ground blinds. My Iowa buck required that I twist around the tree and If the bow was 30" I doubt I would have pulled it off.
27 inch draw here as well. Pat the shoulder bug bit me so I am down to the 50 lb Triax and the jerky tastes the same as from the 32 inch Switchback. In fact no one complained about the jerky in St. Louis at the Pope and Young meet and greet!
It always amazes me that someone will complain how heavy a certain bow is but when you check the weight of their favorite bow brand it is only a few ounces lighter! That same person will then stick on a 12" stabilizer on the front and a 8" side bar stabilizer, a all metal slider sight and a 6 arrow quiver on the bow!
Personally I like a heavier bow and I like several Mathews bows.. Yes, I put on an extended slider, heavy stabilizer and a quiver full of arrows. The great thing about this country is we have so many choices. I think if we all had shoot the exact same thing it would be pretty boring...plus Bigwoodshunter would have to shoot the same "junk" I do and really have no reason to be so degrading towards my choices.
HW, I'd try or shoot a Hoyt and several others anytime. I've just had good experiences with most of my Mathews bows and haven't had a reason to switch. Was even thinking about a Hoyt because I was looking to increase my poundage to 80....but might settle for 75 and stick with Mathews.
I have no problem telling anyone that I personally like Mathews, but I have no reason to bash every other brand as some like to do. Not pointing at you HW, just the ones that declare everything they don't personally like to then be junk.
Good evening everyone. I just got my Mathews Avail in and was wondering what you all thought of it. I have a short drawling of 24.5" so I am very limited. I could have bought a Triax but the dealer said I will not be happy taking a Triax down to 24.5" and would loose a lot of speed. He went on to say the Avail is already set up for a shorter draw length . I went to another Mathews shop and the owner got me set up with a Triax to try out. My bow shot my arrows at 232 and 228 fps. with 2 different arrows @ 59 lbs. My bow is a Mission Endeavor and had original string. The Triax with same arrows @ 55 lbs / 25" draw was only 6 fps faster. Although, it was 4 lbs less pull weight , it was 1/2" longer draw. I was very disappointed in the Triax to say the least and felt bad that I walked out without a new bow order. I went back to the other dealer that recommended a Mathews Avail . Do you think the Avail will be a faster and better bow?
Mathews is the only bow company. Only. No other deserves the recognition. None. They are all junk except Mathews. Real men shoot ‘em. The rest are transgenders or, at least gender confused. That’s why Mathews are so fast. They don’t want the rest to catch them even if they could. Be a man men. Shoot the only mans bow out there.
With a name like Mountaineer, I personally expect nothing but great things from that bow. Only problem is, Mathews bows last year were the only ones shooting their claimed IBO speeds aCcording to independent testing on the internet. So, I’m guessing that is going to be the case this year. No matter how bad that chaps some.
I’ve been joking around this whole thread. But, that last paragraph was serious. :^)
Shot the 31.5 VXR this weekend. The store had just gotten it in and threw on a whisker biscuit and a string loop. I'm not looking for a new bow but I was really impressed. Really hope they don't have it fully set up and tuned the next time I stop by....lol. Of course if I wait a month it will be delaminating and ready for the trash can, right bigwood?
