    “The store said they are not even going to order any because their staff did not like it either.”[/i:1905rcl4]

    Pulled this quote from another website… :whistle
    Now, I know its just a guy “reporting” what he heard about the Creed, but still, how does one repeat such krap? Plus, just who the heck is “their staff”? We all know their are some real “good’uns” out there when it comes to folks that work in the so called pro shops. 8-|

    It also has nothing to do with if you like it or not (Me, I presonally do not).
    Some folks just dont get it, and this shop, and this guy, “just dont get it”.
    Its not about what any one of us want, its about what sells. Last I looked, Mathews dosent have a problem selling bows, especially short ATA, single cam bows. I guess shops like this dont like to make sales. Me, Im in sales and I dont give a rip what you buy, as long as you buy what you want and you buy it from me. :D

    We tend to live on the internet a little much. Id be willing to bet that over 90% of bow buyers never get on an archery related website.

    Sorry to rant, I just give folks too much credit as far as having any common sense. [=}=]

    I have yet to meet face to face with anyone who has shot the Creed and not liked it. Some say it isn’t fast enough, some say it is too expensive, but none of them say it isn’t extremely shoulder-friendly and smooth on the draw, and holds rock solid, and dead in the hand post-shot.

    I just shot my club’s annual Thanksgiving/Charity shoot and made a point of asking people if they’d shot the Creed. Since my local dealer is also the only Pro Shop in town, most had, and most liked it, some liked the Chill better.

    I shot with one couple, the wife had a Jewel the guy had a Z7 Extreme, the wife out-shot him, and he admitted he was thinking of trading in his Z7X for a Creed.

    There are those who have a different opinion, but they seem to be in a very small minority.

    There was one post where the “tester” said he shot the ZXT and how he didn’t like it. Then he went on to say that it was nothing more than a Z7 Extreme with split limbs.

    I then pointed out to him that the ZXT doesn’t have split limbs.

    You do the math.

    Ya might change your mind if you shoot the Creed. I did and love it. I got the ZXT but I might get a Creed when money permits.

    There is another thread on here about the Jewel for MEN and I am going to have to give it a try. I guess if real men can wear pink then I can shoot a “girly” bow. Have you shot the Jewel any? I am just wondering how it might compare to the Helim. I shoot a DXT and just haven’t felt the need to “upgrade” but I haven’t shot the new bows for this year yet. Best Regards

    Mathews Helim 65/27.5 Mathews DXT 70/27.5 All black.
