    I bought the ZXT and love the bow. BUT I would like to get a bigger valley in the draw are there any interchanable cams that would give me a bigger valley. It currently feels like there is NO valley and just goes straight to the wall.  I am pulling 65 pounds at 27.5 inch draw. Could my draw weight affecting me not feeling my valley.

    Sounds like maybe a draw length issue. The zxt has a relatively mild draw cycle, the same cam as the extreme, with a much wider valley than the creed, but doesn’t have a draw stop peg. So, without knowing what you draw should be, it could be long or short and not feeling right to you. Other than a major problem with the routing of the string and cable, I can’t think of anything else that would give you that feeling.

    I have owned 5 mathews all with the same draw length at 27.5 and this bow is the only one I have had this issue with. Would I get anything out of changing the cams to a Z7 cam?

    It’s basically what you have. The z7, magnum, extreme and zxt all are the same profile. They used brace height to alter the speeds. What other bows have you owned? I’m thinking maybe they are like the switchback style, which are very different in their profile, and much slower. It’s the price you pay for speed!

    I have owned the switchback and have to say that was the most comfortable to shoot. The valley appeared to be the best one. I also owned the Q2 and one before that but can’t remember the name. I am wondering if I should have even upgraded but wanted something new. I am just looking for something a little more comfortable to shoot as far as being to relax my bow arm some.

    Lower your poundage. Lots of folks think that they want to “relax” at full draw, which is NOT the right thing to do. You want to create a push-pull effect at full draw and break the shot off as though you are ripping the bow in half, which can hardly be done when relaxing. I still think you may be shooting too long of a draw if you elbow feels locked, or your form is not what it should be. Your knuckles should be at a 45 degree angle on the grip, allowing the elbow to point to the left, not at the ground. This allows for arm extension, but not a locked elbow.
