I am looking into buying a Reezen, but i see alot of them for sale used.

Is their a reason everybody is selling last years, bow other than wanting a new one (Z7).

Just a little worried about the high turn over.

just looking for opinions about it



Thanks

I have a reezen 7 and love it, I think two things contribute to the high turn over, one the new bows and the Z7 is really hot, secondly the "different" draw cycle of the reezen. I really dont notice anyting particular about it and it shoots so well for me that its gonna take something really good this fall for me to give it up.

For some Reezen the Reezen was not liked by everyone but it was fast.My self, I love mine.It just flat out shoots a broadhead well.I had no plans of changing my hunting rig.Untill I brought home a Monster 7.Now if the m7 shoots a bh like the r7 I may go with the m7 cause it is a little faster.

Lots of people complained about the hump in the reezen draw cycle. Then wanted to sell them to buy z7. I shoot a Reezen 7 and love it to death. perfect bow for hunting or 3d, and as long as your not over bowed the hump is no problem. I would recomend shooting the M7 for sure I will own one as soon as my budget allows.

The Reezen does have a significant hump near the end of the draw cycle, but as accurate and fast as it is, I don't mind the hump with the high confidence that I have in my Reezen 6.5 :shade:

I also didnt like the "hump" in the draw on my first Reezen (7.0 -28/70), but I just picked up another Blackout Reezen (6.5 - 28/65) and its alot better at 65#. Im still setting it up, Im almost there though and Im getting some great groups with it. I hated the Monster @ 70# and I didnt like the Reezen @ 70# either, but at a little lower poundages they are completely different drawing and shooting bows.The are EXTREMELY ACCURATE,STABLE,SHOCK FREE,QUIET, and FAST BOWS.

I had a Reezen 6.5 and did not like the draw at all. Hard pulling all the way through and then a pronounced hump at the end :eek:
But, only thing that really matters is your opinion of it ;)

I love my Reezen 7. When the new bows came out, I shot the Hoyts and really thought I would want the Z7, but after shooting it for a while and then going back to my Reezen, I decided to stay with it. The Z7 is a great bow, but I didn't think the draw was that much better to justify getting rid of the Reezen. It shoots great, is quiet, has little shock and is fast. I thought the Z7 balanced better, but I like a pretty heavy stab, so that doesn't really matter to me. For what it's worth, I really liked the Maxis, just not more than the Reezen.

I had a Reezen 7.0, 70#, and 28.5" draw. There is not a "hump" at the end of the draw cycle. I think for those who think there is a hump are pulling too much weight. I thought the draw was about the same as my Switchback. What I did not like was the bow was top heavy. I compounded that problem by putting a B-Stinger on it. I think if I would have played around with the balance a little bit, I could have gotten it to suite me better. I also like shorter axle to axle bows better. The Reezen just felt long to me. I now shoot a SBXT and that bow will never be sold!

It just takes some time getting use to the "HUMP". After you shot it for a while you wont even notice it. You can only be the judge of what you like and don't like.

I have a R7 65/29 shooting it bottomed out as my hunting rig. I like it as I have wanted a "max" cam, short ata, parallell limb bow which is basically what the Reezen is. Its got the max cam "hump" but with a much more solid back wall and a decently forgiving valley (to me). Takes a little getting used to but I can draw right thru it, even in the cold, with ease.

I also own a M7 60/29 shooing it maxed as well. The more I shoot the Monster, even at a lower poundage than the Reezen, I shoot the R7 that much better. Its still smoother (IMO) than the M7. I think its real easy to get "over bowed" with the Monsters....XLR8 and M6 much more than the M7.

The only big "negative" that I saw with the Reezen was that it ran quite a bit long in the draw, especially the first runs. I was against buying one for quite some time because of it. If someone doesnt get to shoot one first they might be in a tight when it comes to DL.
