i cant understand how anyone shoots a matthews. bought a v3x and took it back the next day- heavy and harsh cycles. i have a bowtech realm x and aa new solution ss. both are awesome but the solution ss is smooth as silk, short and light. love it
I have liked the different mathews bows I've had over the past 20 or so years (minus the Reezen 6.5, not my favorite). Everyone has their opinions but I'm a mathews fan. I have test shot Hoyt and an Elite prior to buying my Halon 32 and they seem like good bows too. To compare draw cycles/back walls/"shootability" and all that mess nowadays is splitting hairs to me because the majority of what's out there is good.

Hoyt
Darton
Mathews
Prime
And I have to say the prime revex is a better bow that any hoyt or mathews bow that is currently out I'm my opinion if you have not shot the new prime bow just go shoot it.

When I approximate in my head what myself and y'all might've spent on bows it reminds me of another reason I love rifles. 😝
