I was wondering what people thought of the Z7 Magnum for 3D. I am not interested in a target bow, I prefer hunting bows and BHFS. I plan to hunt turkey but probably not deer. I find the MR7 a bit too heavy, just wondering if the 32″ ATA on the Z7 Mag is a little too short for 3D. I appreciate any advice.
Quite possibly my favorite Mathews bow. I have shot 2 different “hunting” style bows for competitive 3D. The Z7 Magnum has been the best performer for me so far. I have it setup shooting a CBE Sniper Pro Sight, QAD HDX rest, and KTech Stab and Ktech KSB side bar. I shoot Easton A/C/C 3-71 300’s.
The Chill is my new project but i am setting it up with a CBE Elite sight with a 4x lens and B Stinger stabs. I took second in the last local 3D shoot we had with this bow.
I am a 30″ draw and found the longer ATA of the Z7 Magnum to work a lot better than the Z7 Extreme. I was able to maintain tighter groups past 40 yds. The Z9 was just too slow for me. For a speed bow, the Z7 Magnum is extremely forgiving and will perform right next to the Chill.
