I haven't bow hunted much since 2005 or so and plan to get back in to it pretty hard next year. I want to get a Mathews. Reading about them, I see where the Reezen shows to be about the fastest single cam bow they have made over the years. However, I never see anyone talk about that bow on here. Is there a reason that I should avoid this bow if I find a good deal on one?

Which bow in the Mathews line would everyone suggest I look at? I've been researching the Heli, Z7s, and the Creed. Outside of shooting them and seeing which one I like best, is there some advice out to tell something to watch out for?

I have the Reezen and absolutely love it! It is super easy to tune. It's draw cycle isn't as smooth as some of the Mathews, but it isn't as harsh as others and it has a great backwall. It is an absolute tack driver for me and feels great in my hand. I would buy another one in a minute, if I needed one and the price is right, but I would recommend you shoot as many different models as you could and then see what feels best for you during the entire shot.

I just spent three seasons with a reezen, and I'm glad its gone. I'd suggest a Z7,or other model, speed is not everything. Shoot several Mathews bows and even their Mission line before you buy a reezen. A reezen can be had for around $400 on Archerytalk if you are deadset on one.

Perfect example of one of the things that I believe in and constantly preach when it comes to bows. Muzzymangler obviously couldn't get his Reezen out of his hand quick enough, and you couldn't pry my Reezen out of mine—everyone is different and even the same bow may feel completely different in a different hand. That is why you shoot as many different bows as you can and go with what feels best for YOU—it doesn't matter what others opinions happen to be....good or bad.

I have a Reezen 7.0 and I love it. Had it for several years.

I had a Reezen and thought it was good bow until I shot the Z7 Xtreme. There is no comparison. The Z7X is a smoother drawing and shooting bow with very little vibration. Glad the Reezen is gone.

No doubt the Z7X is a sweet shooting bow, but to me there just isn't enough "feel" difference between that and my Reezen to make me go wow and drop $750.
