    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???

    I 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 :thumbup

    I’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]. [=}=]

    Wow, if you have the funds buy them both :thumbup 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 :thumbup

    Z7 for me. Still like the simplicity of the SoloCam.
    Z7 will be another great hunting bow.

    Monster 7 because of how little reflex there is in the riser and yet it still IBOs over 340.

    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!

    I 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.

    I 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.
