Ok guys I have a problem.. I went to pick up a Z7 today and while i was there they talked me into shooting the Monster 7.0.. wow this bow also shot very nice. It’s a coin toss to see which one to buy.
Anyone have pro’s con’s and just a good honest opinion. I shoot moderate 3D and range but mostly hunting… thanks for the help
Oh BTW the only reason for a new bow is because two weeks ago someone stole my bow and archery gear from my garage. Can you believe it and especially during the rut???
Joined: 11/15/2008I voted for the Z7 . I am just not a fan of the split limb look .
So I am a fan of the Z7. I will own on of them soon too
Joined: 7/7/2007I’ve haven’t had the chance to shoot the Monster 7.0 (yet) But out of all the Monster series, the 7.0 interest me the most. Between the three I think I would most likely prefer it the most. (Just a guess until I shoot it)
Between the two in the poll, I picked the Z7. Mostly for the smooth(er) draw. I’ve never preferred hard/harsh drawing bows. I’m a sucker for smooth & forgiving bows, but that are sill fairly fast[/i:v3cu6tug].Good poll, I will definately be watching this ………..since I cannot seem to make up my mind between these two great bows!
Joined: 5/1/2009Wow, if you have the funds buy them both You can’t go wrong with either. The monster will probably hit a little harder and have more kinetic energy if used primarily for hunting. The Z7 is really smooth though and although I haven’t chrono’d it yet, it seemed really quick shooting it at the range today. This bow will be better for blind or tight quarters hunting. You can’t go wrong with the monster though. I pulled a Monster 7 today at the shop, but didn’t have time to shoot it. Until I shoot my z7 more I’m going to vote for the monster based on the performance of my two xlr8s. They shoot like a dream

Z7 will be another great hunting bow.Mathews Solocam and Chill series
Joined: 1/29/2008I voted z7 cause i already have a monster 6
Joined: 7/12/2004Monster 7 because of how little reflex there is in the riser and yet it still IBOs over 340.
Joined: 8/4/2004Where is the both option?If BOTH were possible there wouldn’t be a poll.. And I’m sure I can’t afford two new bows and a divorce.. lol
Thanks guys for all the comments.. for some reason the shop was pushing the Monster 7.0 but i think it’s because of the Monster already being established as a good shooting bow. Where the Z7 is a new design this year. It’s the unknown that scares people….

Plus the 80 pound draw is oh-so-appealing!
Joined: 7/12/2004I think that when the Monster 7 becomes available and folks have a chance to appreciate that Mathews is offering up a tack driving speed bow, I think Mathews is going to make a killing with this bow as that niche is wide open.going back Friday to shoot both again and see which feels the best.. usually there’s one that just talks to ya but this wasn’t the case the first time around.. try try again.. haha
Joined: 2/3/2009I have shot both bows and am impressed with both. The monster 7 draw feels much better to me than the monster 6. The hump is pretty much gone. The draw on the z7 felt so smooth that I expected the m7 draw to feel alot harsher when I first shot it, surprisingly I found the m7 to feel really smooth as well. I’m having kinda a hard time deciding which to buy. I’m gonna go shoot them both one more time, I’m leaning towards a monster 7 with 80 lb limbs.
Where is the both option?
