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.
any Idea what the string angle is ... dependent on the size of the cam, some short A to A bows draw and feel longer than what they are ... but for me, it is the stabilization of a bow and why longer A to A bows feel better in many hands ... you wont see a Pro 3D shooter competing with a 28" bow nor will you see the top end indoor spot shooters using one .... it very well may be a good hunting bow for some, esp those with shorter draw lengths ... wont know till one shoots it ...
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.
I'm a full 30 inch draw ... sooooo ..... ;0) .. it is 'prolly a great bow, just not for us longer Dl guys .. hope you continue to shoot it well,. so far you have .. ;0) ... my future rigs will be a min of 32" and preferred 33"-35" A to A for hunting ... Ive read where 29" is the average draw length .. does this new bow fit into to that ?? it seems like it may ....
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.
Look at the new 2020 Xpedition line up ... the Mountaineer X/33"/340 IBO is still there, but they now have the MX15 (32"-358-362 IBO-5" brace) and the MX16 (32"-348-352 IBO/6" brace) and a 34 inch speed bow called the DLX, a remake of their famous Denali at a IBO of 342-345 and the Escape a 30" shorty with a IBO of 348-352 ... kind blows away Mathews and Bowtech and Hoyt... dosnt it ...lol ... I will be shooting these this spring ... time for a new bow (maybe)... sorry Ally ..... if the $$ is there for me to do so ..... The DLX really interests me as does the Mountaineer X .... I only have to drive 200+ miles round trip to test them .... ;0)
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?
