Mathews

Postby Goose » Wed Sep 17, 2008 5:08 pm

Bought the new Mathews DXT this past Feb. and I am very pleased with it. So far i got a turkey and doe with it and it is fast and quiet. Shoot in the basement 3-4 times per week and it performs well. had to change my grip a little to get it to papertune good but thats me not the bow. Got a g5 metapeep put in and it hasnt rotated at all. All around Im very happy with it and give it two thumbs up! I shot a 2003 Fred Bear team realtree bow before this and although I had no problems with it I cant believe the difference. ImageImage

They are one heck of a bow. I have a switchback and would love to go to the dxt but cant justify it right now $$$ wise.
 
Have you had a chance to run it on a chrono??Just curious what kind of speed you are getting out of it.

Prairieshadow I have the switchback xt and love it my buddy just bought a dxt and I cant tell a difference between the 2 other than dxt is a little shorter.... I like the switchback xt better mostly because its mine, lol.
 
I chronied my xt and shoot 290 fps with maxima 350 and 100 grain tips...
 
I switched from a High Country 4 Runner Pro Series which was a great bow but still wasnt in the same league as the Mathews my shooting improved dramaticly once I swithched to the Mathews because the bow is so smooth...

I shot through a chrono a while back at 65 lbs and cx 350s,29 inch draw,100gr  at 285.
Thats one thing that amazes me that I never noticed before I shot this bow-handshock!
My fred bear that ive shot since buying the mathews feels like its going to jump out of my hand. The dxt is dead in the hand! Love it!

I shoot a switchback, love it.  I shoot other brands of bows occasionally and can't believe how much they jump, and vibrate.

i ran mine through a crono graph
mine is going about 285
with 125 grain arrow tips
it is an incredible bow
and the force behind it exceptional it hits like aa ton of bricks
i had a passthrough on a kudu at a 3D shoot at 45 yards with a field point
