I feel like this is just a waste of money. A half of a pound is not enough of a selling point then the regular z7.
November 7th, 2011, 01:47 PM
shot it and it buzzes for 2 seconds after the shot... with all the cheaper stuff they put on it the price should have dropped... at my local shop, not one order for it has been placed yet... they come in thiking great things and after shooting it they say thanks for letting me save my money... sad..

Be present in all things you undertake. Be passionate about the people and things you love. Always believe in yourself even when others don't. Afterall what is life without a little salt.

well then design a new riser for them lol

I shot one a few weeks back. Nice bow for sure. I did notice the SLIGHT vibration after the shot, not bad, but still there. I imagine some heavier dampners would get rid of this, but that sort of defeats the purpose of the light weight stuff huh? I certainly wont be giving up my current Z7 to get one of these, but it is a nice bow.

They are the ones that charge 1000.00 bucks so they should design a new rizer lol.

The riser IS new!? I think some of you guys don't realize how much engineering time goes into designing something like that... lets not forget they're also a business, which means at the end of the day they need to turn a profit no? The Heli-M is a really nice bow, but like you guys said, I don't think I'll be giving up my Z7 to go to this one. There are changes, just not enough to make a difference for me at this time.

I would have to agree. It has a noticeable hand shock compared to the Z7. yes its light, but not worth the performance loss (hand shock) after having two z7's there is no way I could go to the HeliM. I love Mathews but I think they are just trying to make a statement against the Hoyt "Element".

they are definately going against hoyt.. and there lighter lol
December 16th, 2011, 02:08 PM
a light stabilizer will most likely fix the hand shock anyway...

Already trading in a Z7? They've only been out for a short time. I would think one would just be getting intimate with his/her Z7 at this point. Why get rid of such a fine bow so quickly?
