    A 6″ bh solocam would be a bad business decision IMHO.

    They have been making the 6″ BH Prestige for years now.  An updated version (longer riser, more parallel limbs, tweaked cam) would be anything but a bad decision.

    heck…just update the “look” of an old SBXT for 2014..and i’ll buy it :D

    I’d buy one of these! That would bring me back to Mathew’s!

    they basically did a couple years ago with the ez7 and nobody bought it….1 year run only on a AWESOME bow..

    No one bought it because the bow wasn’t marketed to sale to the masses.  The Z7 Extreme was the latest and greatest back then (I think, can’t remember the flagship bow that year).  It was the bow featured on the home page of this website as well as all the ads in the magazines, so that’s the bow everyone wanted.  My guess is most of the bow-buying public didn’t even know the EZ7 existed or was an option….

    Re-introduce the EZ7 with a new cool name, 34″ ATA or so, give the cam a cool new catch phrase name, maybe throw a reverse assist roller guard on it, and market it as the flagship bow, and they would probably sell as many as they could make.

    My bad.  I think the EZ7 already had the reverse assist RG.

    Here is something to ponder … dealers are being told the Z7 Magnum, Prestige, MR6, and MR7 are to be discontinued and to get orders in by 31 Oct.

    Maybe a longer ATA solocam is the replacement for the Z7 Mag and Prestige?

    Maybe a new model AVS system with different base cams and riser?

    I think that is the right move for the new bows to replace these bows. All these bows are the longer ATA bows compared to the newest Bows. Now if they drop these longer ATA bows I sure hope the replacements are that long or longer.

    Mmmmmm……….Monster Geo-Carbon 6!!

    Carbon Geogrid riser with integral grip, 6″ BH, 33″ ATA, 4lb, DYAD AVS dual cam and 355fps IBO.

    Now that’d  be a bow worth hanging out till Nov for!!

    I guess I just don’t get the fasination with sub 7″ BH.  With todays technology we have plenty of speed why make such a unforgiving/unshootable bow?

    The 6″ bh Prestige is far from unforgiving or unshootable.  An updated version would likely get my $ pretty quickly.  My favorite Mathews to date.
