I'm not really that big of a fan of the carbon matrix. I just don't like the look at all. It is just too over the top and looks too sci-fi for me. No doubt that thing is light and that it would be a breeze to carry all day on a backcountry elk hunt during the rut when it is still 70 degrees but I think the lack of weight might make you a little more unstable as well. I don't know if I could shoot a bow that is that light all that well. And the price tag is a little shocking.
I want to get my hands on one to see what its all about though. Maybe I'm just being too old school about it.
I'm not knocking them for selling them for that price because they WILL sell them! Just not to me (until I win the lottery :lol: ). I'm pretty happy with my Guardian and still baby it like it was a $2100 bow . I sure wouldn't pass up the opportunity to shoot one though!
I bought a Mathews Z7 this year and love it. It cost more, equipped, than my Tikka rifle with a scope. Bows are just downright expensive, but I love it and it is black which, besides the smooth fast shooting, is one of the reasons I got it.
I hope to get a deer with it this year. Already got my first turkey with it in the spring. I doubt I'll buy another bow in my lifetime, but you never know.
Being a bowhunting I've always been fanatical about scent control. Whether it's sprays, carbon clothing etc. I've tried it. The best thing that I have found for eliminating human scent is Betadine. It's been used in hospitals and homes for decades as a defense against infections on minor scrapes and burns. It can typically be found near the pharmacy in any of the major "one stop shop" stores, and a bottle will last multiple hunting seasons.
Before every hunt possible I...
