    Hello all,

    I don’t frequent here as much as I used to.  The new site format wasn’t user friendly for me for some time.  Since I got my new laptop I have been browsing here again and can navigate much easier than I could.  Figured I’d get back to hanging around here some more now that I can.
    I got rid of my Drenalin which I purchase new in 2008.  I am one of those guys that get a new bow every 5 or  6 years, therefore I was due.  I absolutely loved my Dren and never thought I would part with it.  Best bow I ever had.  My wife had a surgery which took all of my bow $$$ for me to get a new bow this year.  That’s fine though as family is first and the Dren would be good to keep for another year anyhow.  I had been shooting some bows over the last couple of years and had intended on ordering me a new Heli’m as is fit and shot for me better than the Creed or CreedXS.

    I went back to my dealer the other day and he had a 2009 model LH Reezen 7.0 with 60 lb limbs.  He sold it to a customer that traded it in two months after he bought it new in 2010.  The customer ordered it in 60 lbs as he had shoulder trouble.  The customer still had problems pulling 60 lbs.  He went to a doctor got his crossbow permit and traded the Reezen 7.0 for a Parker Crossbow.  My dealer has had this bow since March 2010 with less than 50 shots on it and never being in the woods and couldn’t get rid of it as everyone that came in Left Handed was ordering newer models. The finish on this bow was flawless.  Not a mark on it anywhere.

    Considering I  have been shooting my Dren with 70 lb limbs backed down to 62 to 63 lbs anyway this Reezen 7.0 had me intrigued.  I didn’t have money for a new one but maybe could make a deal on trade if I liked the Reezen.   I had my dealer set it up for me to shoot and I immediately fell in love with this Reezen.
    My Dren of course was a little smoother on the draw but the Reezen wasn’t nightmarish as I’ve heard a very few others say.  It was relatively smooth and I could hold into the wall a lot better with it which resulted in accuracy that I never achieved with the Dren and I shot the Dren extremely well.  I had to have this Reezen and then started debating about not having a warranty with this bow.

    Long story short I ended up with the Reezen.  The dealer took my offer of my Dren plus a stabilizer and $100 and I got the Reezen and got to keep all my accessories from my Dren.   I love this thing and figure I’ll keep it as a backup bow when I buy a new Mathews in about 2 or 3 years.
    It’s a Reezen 7.0 Left Hand maxed at 61 pounds, 29 inch draw, QAD Pro Hunter Rest, Mathews T-5 quiver, Beman ICS Hunter 340 Arrows at 415 grains total  shooting a blazing 284 fps.  That’s crazy fast for that weight arrow at 61 lbs.  Spine matching for this setup is good fora 100 grain or 125 grain head according to OT2.  If I drop to a 100 grain head I would be shooting about 293 fps.   Probably stay with the 125 head though

    That rivals any bow out there in terms of performance. I think you did really well.

    I’ve had a 1995 Mathews Ultra Lite, a 2002 Mathews Legacy, a 2008 Drenalin and now this Reezen and I’m sure I’ll enjoy it.   Glad to hear you’ve enjoyed yours.   Nice bunch of bows in your lineup according to your signature as well.{#emotions_dlg.mathews_thumbs_up}

    Haha yeah I have too many bows! I am thinking about getting rid of the Helim and Z9, but I love shooting them all. I just like the longer axle to axle bows better.

    Congrats on the new bow! I had a 2010 Reezen 7.0 and LOVED it! I traded it last year for a ’13 Creed and wish I hadn’t! I shot that bow better than any I’ve ever had!
