Anonymous TnDeer Old Timer

Anyone got one of the new Drenalin's? How do you like it? I'm a Matthews owner and was thinking about upgrading from an older model, but I shot this bow and felt vibration in the grip after I released the arrow. It didnt have any dampening accessories on it, but I've never felt that from a mathews before. Just curious if anyone that has one still feels that vibration after adding a stabilizer, limbsavers, etc...?

I waited till the dren's came out to get me a new bow, been shooting a FX for years. I shot both the new dren & the XT, both set up the same. I went with the XT, I also felt the vib in the dren after the shot. I love the XT and at $150 cheeper then the dren I cant see where I went wrong.
Just say NO to PETA & HSUS

I got a Dren this year I love it I can't feel the shot at all. I have limbsavers on it never shot it without them so I couldn't tell you if it had vibration before hand.

I love it! It already put the hurtin on a doe.

I have both the XT and the Dren. The Dren handshock is not near as bad as u might think. After shooting it for a couple of days u won't notice it at all. The Dren is not quite as smooth as the XT. It all depends on whether u want it to br smooth or faster. I will tell u the weight of the Dren is why I bought one and I am happy with it. I don't know where u are pricing the Matthews bows but the diff is not $150 around here. I t is less than $50. Try Legend Outrdoor Advantage ih Athes TN and ask fo Mike. As a matter of fact they are having a sale with $50 off of their already great prices. No I do not work there but I do buy there.

I have owned the Mathews LX, two switchback xt's and the drenalin. A few months ago I bought the drenalin and although it was a great bow, I sold it and went back to the xt. Overall I like and shoot the xt much better than I did my drenalin.I also like the shorter ata of the xt, it is much easier to me to maneuver around in the stand.
