Remember the Ark was built by amateurs, the titanic by professionals.

Last time I did some Mathews "research" was last fall. I took my bow and arrows to the local shop and shot my bow through the chrono, then shot a couple set for me, same poundage (62lbs), using my arrows. I saw that the Reezen was nearly 40 feet faster on just efficiency alone. That was impressive...but not sure it's worth the cost of an upgrade.
I'm usually on a 5-year cycle...if I really like a bow I'll usually hunt with it for 5 years and upgrade. If that holds true, I'll be upgrading this year. I'll have to give this new bow a look.

I sold it on eBay several months back. It was in perfect condition after several thousand shots thru it. Sold it right after I shot my whitetail. The shot on that whitetail was text book perfect so it wasn't the bow, it was the shooter that caused that decision. Man the punching power that it had was simply awesome. But I was not comfortable with it. I have the strength and the control at 70 pounds draw weight but I questioned the let off pounds on it. Plus the let off is questionable in my mind. I felt it was maybe more like 70% let off than the 80% it was suppose to be.
Now I own the newest Monster. The Monster 7.0 and to me it is a world of difference from the M6. The way draw force curve and the brace height feels better at 7" instead of the 6" of it's predecessor. The let off to me feels closer to 80% so I can be more comfortable while at full draw. Yes it has the knock Down punch of the 6.0 too. Another plus it's more quiet than the 6.0. I think it's about as quiet as my Drenalin or my Switchback. To me the Monster 7.0 does what a bow should do very well. I'm pleased and impressed with the changes.
