So here it goes. guess it ask you fine gentlemen. I own the XT, very happy with it. Was thinking of getting another bow and of course keep the XT as backup. The new bow needs to do some 3 D work as well and due to slightly unsound swedish regulations the bow I compete in 3 D with needs to not be more than 60 lbs of draw weight. That being said i will be shooting 300 ish grain arrows with it for 3D(@60 Lbs) and 385 gr arrows for hunting. Getting over 300 fps for 3 D would be nice, Im a 28 inch DL.
I shot them both just the other day. I would buy the Reezen.I didnt notice a big differance in the draw,vibration,noise or any thing else. The reezen is slightly longer,a little faster and I didnt check but it felt like it was just slightly heavier. I thought that it shot better. I dont owen a reezen yet Iam going to wait and shoot the others but the waffle riser doesent do any thing for me either. I also shot the maxxis 35 and It is vary vary nice. But I have always been a mathews fan and if I end up with a hoyt I will never ever here the end of it.But like they say “get over it.”
I certainly don’t like the looks of the Z7. It looks like it’s made out of those plastic milk crates. I think the Reezen is a great looking bow, and a little longer and faster than the Z7. Personally, I would get the Reezen
I had a 6.5 and now have a 7.0 Reezen.I shot the Z7 last night. I don’t know if there is enough difference to justify trading the Reezen for the Z7 but if I didn’t have either and were shopping for 1 I think the Z7 would get the nod. You can’t loose with either one. Man Mathews turns out some pretty awesome bows every year.
I own an R7 and got a z7 coming. Overall smoothness goes to the z, although the reezen isn’t a slouch in any area either, both are quiet, fast, and hold like a dream. I say shoot them both for yourself over, and over, and over, and you get the point, and if it hasn’t come to you by then, just flip a coin, because there really isn’t a right and wrong answer in this one for a hunting bow. BEST OF LUCK AND ENJOY
i own a reezen 6.5 and a hoyt alphamax both are awsome bows and i shot the Z7 i think it is the smoothest bow i ever shot the reverse assist made 65lbs feel like 60 and the balence s just dead in your hands, the grip is better and it is lighter and quieter.
