I shot the Chill R today at 70 lbs and 28" draw; I normally shoot 27.5 at 65 lbs with my Helium. The draw cycle was great, just like everyone has mentioned. I was a little surprised at the vibration, but the bow was bare besides d loop and rest. I was even more surprised they had to tie a d loop on it, no one around here went to shoot it yet! The increased stability of a slightly heavier and longer bow was very noticeable to me, which was the biggest reason I went to give it a try. The back wall was very nice as well, much more defined than I expected. Overall, if my dealer would take my Helium back on trade (I'm pondering selling it online, though I'm leery of this) I might consider this bow as it fits my hunting preference well; my home is out West, and I'm usually chasing elk/mule deer. I've been reading quite a few dismal threads on the new Mathews bows and the Company this week. After shooting this new offering, I was honestly happy my two year old "flagship" wasn't blown out of the water. I appreciate that I don't have to upgrade every couple years because technology has evolved so much. In my opinion progress has happened in 2014, and I feel more and more that the solo cams are being targeted at a certain product desire, while the new Chill & Chill R are attempting to offer something unique among the bigger & faster bows out there. I won't deny I was a little surprised they shortened the Creed - I wanted something fresh this year as well, but after shooting that Chill R, I feel like I got it.
