    Not a lot of Love

    From the lack of threads it appears the Mathews X Bow doesn't have any fans.

    Well.....I think you will see good things in the future they just need some tweaks. Like the safety and not enough clearance for fixed blade heads. I don't know how they let a bow out the door that you can't shoot fixed blades with. I guess they assumed everyone shot mechanicals. They did bring out rubber plates instead of the cheesy, cheapo plastic. They have some real nice features and if they stick with it another year or two down the road I think they will be a contender in the market.....just not this year.

    Well on my neck of the woods there are alot of mxb360s being used.Personally i love the bow.In fact i own 2 of them.I'm a hunter and it serves me well.Killed a ton of dear with them.My dealer can't keep them on the shelf.He orders 10 at time and they all sell in no time.It has been this way since they came out.In fact he has sold more mxb360s then regular vertical bows.He has all the Mathews vertical bows on the wall.They are not selling as well.

    They say you can shoot 3-4 fixed blade with the MXB 320 being it is shorter then the 360, the 360 is Mech blade but they also say a 2-3 blade under 1 1/16th will work with the 360 but not a 4 blade Hmmmmmm, think I would stay Mech with the 360...

    And yes I'm going to look at a 360, I like that you don't need a press to change the string but then they say that you should change strings every 100-150 shots.

    You don't have to change strings every100-150 shoots.
    The strings and cables are good for 800 shots or 2 years.
    I have shot 700 shots out of mine and still going strong

    Rage broadheads work great from this bow.I use the chisel tip 2 blade.I have killed everything i have shot at.Including a 300lbs boar
    they do a fantastic job.

    I just bought a MXB 360 today, only had to shoot it once and it was sold, tomorrow I will get more shots in so then I will see the whole pic, I have lots of 100gn Rage BH from my vert days but I'm looking at the Ulmer Edge BH right now for this bow.

    You will love this bow.It's a tac driver for sure.Make sure you use rail lube.It will save the center serving.
    Enjoy it

    Yes they have been up grated.They now have rubber grips instead of plastic,The safety has been upgrated,The trigger has been up grated.Much better from when they first came out.The last 2 i got in are way better then my original one.

    I just picked a Mxb 320 up for my wife who has a degenerative back disease. I am very impressed with bow, no complaints really. I have never been a crossbow guy, but this is the first one I have ever handled that didn't feel like a toy.

    Just picked up the 320. Sweet little bow. Compact, light, good balance, adjustable stock, GREAT trigger, relatively quiet, dream to cock and, based on testing so far, accurate too. Looks like some of my other bows will be finding a new home. The fact that there is relatively little buzz may be because their owners are NOT having problems with them. Best kind of no buzz.

    And if you think the 320 and 360 are sweet, there is a 340 and 400 in the wings for 2014. The safety has been relocated to like the 320's plus same light, narrow profile. The 3 arrow quiver in my 320 is awesome in location and attachment.

    I have Matrix now shoot Rage they are just devastating from crossbow. That said i going to add another Cb to may group and got to handle the Mission to say i ma impressed would be complete understatement.

    Impressions;
    Narrow
    Light
    Fast
    Smooth
    Mechanically sound.

    Seems to be the front runner for my next CB.

    Ah hah lookin r ya! The cutout on the then new 360 was abit narrow. I have read they have made the cutout larger to accept bigger fixed blade BH's. Appears 2014 models are showin to be well made & user friendly. I actually have a Dealer in the town i live close to

    yep you caught me lol..I guess one thing I question .Is the cables are only good for 800 shots or two years?..
    not a bad thing if they are not hard to change and tune and inexpensive..
    I shot my Exomax at least 2000 shots the first year I had it. I have slowed down a little since.

    We knowed that 800 shots on a stringis very good. I knowed you can change out the string widout a press. I am very interested in the Dagger, will give340 fps wid a 385gr arrow. That & the BEE's are a great matct
