If it's true that is pretty sh!tty of Matthews... wouldn't surprise me though given all the industry sellouts. I'd buy my next bow from Hinton Archery if they were nearby.

Amen to Hinton Archery for being honest and unbiased in their testing . Too bad Mathews couldn't handle their dealers honest opinions in side to side tests. Most companies would welcome that challenge .
I have a feeling the Mathews marketing machine arrogance may have hurt them , by dropping the dealer more so than the test results .

Holy cow Batman, those bows are all close to $1K! I'm glad there are still some good bows being made for a fraction of that cost.

Good on Hinton Archery! Hope they have their best year

That makes me throw up in my mouth a little! I've shot Mathews for years and have been very pleased, but something better change before my next purchase. It's time for them to step up to the plate and innovate, instead of marketing. Need to get back to what made them who they are.

You would be surprised at what Matthews and others think of the working man. Like a lot of others they have forgotten that small town dealers and working people got them where they are today not the ones they pay to use their products.

I was dead set on another Mathews till I shot the Hoyt Spyder. I really like that Hoyt continues to offer longer ATA hunting bows.
