Creed 27, I purposely did not mention that I can stack my field points within a 3" dia circle out to 50 because most would reply by saying, " that's good enough." But, I have 25 years of archery experience competing at a high level within 3D circuits. Trust me when I say it takes all my skill to get this bow to do this. It's exhausting. I know this is a hunting bow, but every other Mathews hunting bow I've owned was more than worthy of a win, place, or show at most tournaments. In fact, I bet I have a few dozen trophies from 3D tournaments where I took my hunting bows to competition. I can get almost any bow to stack now days, but I want my equipment to perform as it should without having to make concessions to my other accessories. I don't want to have to adjust my 2nd axis on my sight past true horizontal, I don't want to have to adjust my sight all the dang way to one side to get aligned with my arrow's point of impact, and I sure don't want to have to stare at my sight bubble for 20 seconds at full draw to get my bow level before the shot. As a designer myself, I can't understand why the bow manufacturers have this obsession with micro clearances. I mean, please!, give us a little extra room for fletching clearances for goodness sakes. I shoot 1" blazer vanes and when my bows are setup with spec center shots, you couldn't fit a human hair between my fletching and the stinking cables. Good grief. I'm starting to feel like I dropped a grand on a lemon. Thank goodness I kept my C3 and Z7E. For me, I love Mathews bows, but I am too detailed oriented to keep this creed. Hell, I even watched a video tonight with Levi Morgan hunting with his Creed. I thought, this will be good, maybe I will watch him stick a big deer with his Creed and somehow I will feel a little better about my Creed. NO-GO! He missed the deer standing broadside at 30 yards and he was dejected, looked at the camera and said "I don't understand what happened". I think I know what happened Levi, Creed happened. Your right side torque bow pulled your arrow 5" right, just like it does mine and just like it does Creed 27's. And, you don't have the fletching clearance to place wider vanes on your arrows to correct the flight of your broad heads. Now, I presume, perhaps, the designers of the Creed may think we will love this bow IF, we shoot 1" vanes, narrow prong style arrow rests, or narrow drop always, nothing but mechanical broad heads, and have a sight with no bubble level. That's not my bag........I'm switching horses to a helium or another model. Lastly, I had to place Atheletic tape on the washers that hold the cam pin in place because they rattle. ............$999.00............Classic.
