Ok, I have searched Mathews' bows because I'm in the process of looking into a new bow, and Mathews has really drawn my attention (I know everyone doesn't like them, and I'm not trying to start Mathews vs. x bow company). I've seen people ask questions about different bows that have came out recently. Today, I shot the DXT, Switchback XT, Drenalin, and the S2 (I know the XT and Drenalin have been out for a little while). I'm going to give my reviews:
DXT- What an awesome bow. Short, light, fast, accurate and quiet (which all the bows I shot are like that). The short ATA is a little different than usual. The draw cycle was great, but it wasn't the smoothiest one I shot. Overall, it was a great bow, but it wasn't me. It was extremely light, but that is a plus (seeing if you are going on a spot and stalk) and a negative (feels as if the wind could play a factor when in the woods).
Switchback XT- Excellent bow. A longer ATA than the DXT, but still just as nice. It was one of the smoothiest I shot all day. The draw cycle was better then the DXT in my opinion.
Drenalin- Nice bow. It was nice shooting, but I did have a few things I didn't like about it. The draw cycle was the worst out of all 4 bows I shot. It was light as the DXT, but it just had that draw that really disappointed me.
S2- Like the other bows, it was an awesome bow. It had the weight of the XT, and the ATA of the Drenalin. It is built like the Switchback and XT since S2 stands for Switchback 2. Of all the bows I shot, this was the one I loved the most. A real smooth draw, balanced weight, fast, and like all Mathews I've shot, quite. All-in-all, this is the bow that got my attention. I will be purchasing this one soon.
I wasn't trying to down any other company or any other Mathews' bows. Remember, this is from my aspect (I'm 17yrs, 5'10", 27.5" draw). I encourage anyone looking for a new bow to go out and do what I did. It will help you see the little things you like and dislike in any bow. I hope this helps people out, and please, feel free to ask questions.
