    I think the one point that hasn’t been brought up and could be huge is…The bow is a demo bow..Mathews knows that serial number matches a demo bow..The bow shouldn’t have been sold as new stock.. could come into play come warranty time..

    I guess we will see how this pans out. Who knows what will happen?

    If the “demo” bows aren’t actually denoted as demo bows, why can it not be sold? As far as I understand it, the dealers pay the same amount for these “demo” bows as they do normal stock; if that is true, then the dealer has the right to do as he wishes. And no, even if it is an actual “demo” bow, the finish should not be inferior to that of the actual product; after all, what kind of message would that send to the consumer?

    what good would a demo bow be if we sold them before anyone can shoot one? we like to keep our stock fresh,so people don’t buy one thats been shot a bunch.that’s the whole idea of the demo program.i think that’s only fair to the final buyer to have a new unshot bow. i’m sure you would want that,right?

    I didn’t go through the entire thread again, but I thought the demo program was different now. Meaning, that the dealers were just buying the regular bows. Many years ago, Mathews used to put actual demo emblems on the the demo bows. Maybe they should go back to the demo emblems, then this guy wouldn’t have gotten the demo bow.

    I was the first to shoot it and I bought it. Still a new bow no matter how you look at it. The bow is no different then a bow you would order right now.

    Actually it could be different, they have changed things on bows before after released like the roller guard or like on the new Creed some limb shims [=}=]

    The finish I’m not sure on but to me from the pics it looks like normal wear form shooting alot ( Like you said it has killed more game than some would kill in there life) so to me it is getting used/shot alot and is going to show some wear.

    I was saying that because some of the game I have taken was small game and things most wouldn’t even try to take. Birds, possum, racoon, Fox, etc.

    I ain’t gonna worry about it. I would rather not half to send it back. I am sure Mathews will stand behind it and try to fix it. I have a Creed coming in Tactical so this one can be my hunting rig.

    Wal-Mart has laundry marking pens that once dry are permanent, rub resistant and water resistant. These can be used to touch up minor areas of wear.

    Also good for coloring/touch-up on fly fishing flies.

    Thanks for that info Brian. I already made a vinyl cover that is something like a Thermal Shield. It is covered up now. It’s a Carbon Vinyl.
