    Why on earth would you create the perfect bow, then turn around a couple years later and discontinue it. A real head scratcher for sure.

    I would like to see a new Target Bow but it would be pretty hard to improve on the Apex line.

    I'd like to see an apex 6, or something more speed without sacrificing ata.

    Exactly what I was thinking. I have the standard Switchback and love it so far. Wish it was half a pound lighter but I am sure the engineers at Mathews could cut quite a bit off the riser. Get rid of the limb mounted string suppressors and just go with a riser mounted suppressor as well.

    Keeping an old design and just updating it would cut down on costs and they would be able to sell it quite a bit cheaper which could result in a large amount of sales due to the demand. I would buy one instead of the DNA that is on my wish list!

    I as well would like to see a 32 or 35 inch helium or a longer mr7 like 36 or 37 inchs

    I can not think of any ads that I have seen lately that they have bashed other bow designs so I guess it will be the same model bow as the last 4 years or so. solo cam slim limbs with a bulky grip.... I just think it is funny how they said years ago that dual cams are inferior to there solo cam design,,,,now they offer those...And how the slim limb design is better for what ever and that split limbs aren't what its all thats cracked up to be and ya they offer those now as well.. the only thing I can think of that it could be is a crossbow but they offer one of those now too in there mission line so who knows really what it will be. :P

    I expect they will do three things:

    ZXT stays. Chill with shorter brace. New Creed, just for the heck of it, perhaps 3.6 rather than 3.7 in weight. Update to the MR7, with DYAD and some other minute difference. Perhaps that marketed towards target shooters.

    From the details it was already clear that they were going to use the Chill Mods for at least two other bows giving them different drawlengths like on the Monster 7.0 and MR series.

    And why not, the Chill had a great reception this year, while they tried to market the Creed real hard. The Monsters have been making far more waves than the Heli-M and Creed together, the Z7 was the last line that did well for them.
    More than ever I feel they have to capitalize on what DID work well for them.

    For sure a Chill 6 ibo about 350. Maybe even a Chill 5 at ???ibo??? Hope it's something better than a Creed this year for the flagship. Biggest Mathews flop ever I think. Hard feeling up hill battle draw at the end while being slow at the same time? What's up with that? Mathews is way more capable than the Creed. Cmon. ZXT is a much better bow in my opinion and cheaper. Speaking of, They should just lighten up the ZXT riser as I know they can, Jewel for example.

    I don't see them getting much better than a Heli-M for quite some time. As for those wanting long ata bow's I wouldn't count on it.

    How about a not so top heavy revamped Z7 Mag with a two cam system, in the 340-350 fps range !

    How about a bow that gets some what close to Ibo? How about something new and innovative instead of the same old sh--.

    I don't even own a Mathews. Usually I shoot many of the new bows that come out every year, just haven't bought one in quite some time. I do however think that most companies are using cookie cutters. I'm sure there are other companies besides Mathews that don't quite measure up in IBO. How about you take your same old sh-- somewhere else.

    2014 Mathews

    I would be sold on a 35 or 36 inch ATA Monster with a 6 inch brace height running around 345 FPS, but still smooth as can be. All this under 4 pounds. Doubtful though.

    each company has their own type. Mathews just tends to be shorter bows. That's not a big deal. Personally, I like it. But I'd love to see them bring back the Z7 series and put on 2 cams and bump up the speed. That's be crazy.

    I'll wait and see what they come out with. It will be hard to top 2013, but I am sure they will figure something out. ;-)

    I would like to see them expand their camo and finish colors some. Have more choices available like a lot of the other archery companies.

    I love how Mathews uses solid limb bows that aren't past parallel so I can use my bowmaster bow press on them however; Elite offers the same thing in dual cam that is over 340 IBO... I would like to see Mathews get a little more speed out of their standard design so I'm not swayed towards an Elite Pulse next year when I buy a new bow.

    One that cures target panic would be my first wish and second would be something that doesn't require a 2nd mortgage.

    I hope they offer something in a long draw. I am a proud owner of a z9. I think mathews is offering more dual cam split limb bows to show other bow companies that they are the superior bow company in any style of bow they make... I hope Mathews really reads what their customer want and they don't forget about us ld guys. Because they are the best!
