    I am in the market for a new bow, I spent a whole day at the pro shop shooting numerous bows of different brands and narrowed it down between the Creed and the Chill?  I have always been a dual cam guy and this will be my first Mathews.  They are both without a doubt fine bows and I am really having trouble deciding between the 2.  I would like to know from all of you that purchased a Chill or Creed what made you lean that direction, And overall opinions and things to consider when deciding to get the Chill or make the switch to a solocam in the Creed.

    i did choose the creed because i like the single cam feel better. i also think the chill is a great combo of what has been learned from the mr series combined with the light weight of the geogrid riser for a nice blend. do what feels right for you.

    Im a single cam guy so I REALLY like the Creed and its my favorite. That being said, I was still blown away by the Chill.

    Well I have shot a single cam bow for years and I was leery of buying a two cam bow,  I also have a short draw length so getting speed out of my bows was difficult, that was until I shot the Chill. I shot both the creed and the chill, hands down the chill was for me. It has all the qualities I was looking for, it’s quiet, smooth shooting, it’s fast, and it just looks good. I hate the way the creed looks especially the goofy lookin wheel thats just my opinion though. I will tell you that the chill is by far the best bow I have ever shot.

    I prefer the Creed myself.  Smoother Draw, Quieter, Love the drawstop backwall, and the longer riser, it felt more stabile to me at full draw.   Shoot like a longer ata bow.  I have 2 and can’t say enough good things about them.{#emotions_dlg.mathews_thumbs_up}

    The Chill is a very nice bow also.{#emotions_dlg.mathews_monster_blue}

    I fell in love with the chill from the first shot. I agree with what the other two post above said about the chill.  I took two shots with the creed and put it back on the rack. I like everything about the creed until i got to full draw. I felt like i could not relax and i had to fight to keep it held back. There was a little more hand shock after the shot then the chill. If the creed was the only bow that Mathews came out with this year i would of kept on  my swbxt.  This is my experience with the two bows. I will always shoot Mathews bows because i like what they stand for.  Good luck with you choice.

    why do you want to relax at full draw? you need to pull thru the shot. this is why it’s very important to shoot the correct draw length. i would be willing to bet it was too long for you.
