Not to sure what he means I have total field of view with my bow. His comment confuses me
If your buddy is having trouble with his FOV, its not because of the riser. :nono: More than likely he is shooting with a closed stance, or some other "Shooting Form" issue which is more than likely creating this problem. A bad shooting form will cause a bad anchor point, which will position you behind the bow incorrectly, etc, etc. So please don't think for a second there's a flaw in anything Mathews has ever developed in a bow, :ninja: (well there is that, grip thing) :ninja: Just don't tell anybody!! :zip: Also have your friend go to a pro shop and have someone evaluate his stance/form or better yet, have him get some pictures made, head to toe, each side, from the back, up top looking down, etc. Then post those pictures on AT & addressed to "Nuts&Bolts" this guy is awsome and will set him straight, with shooting form graphs to prove it.:wink: Hope this helps you in feeling safe about choosing the Mathews bow's, you can't go wrong. :thumb:I have never shot a Mathews, but am interested in trying one out...had a friend who is a lifelong matty guy tell me that the riser cutout restricts the field of view somewhat...he said it is his only gripe with their bows...looking for some more opinions, tell me what you think?
FOV is not the issue here.
It is the center shot that needs to be addressed and yes Mathews bows have a close-to-the -riser center shot.
However, its really not that big of deal. I use an HHA-5519 on my DXT. Part of the housing sits behind the riser but it doesn't affect my FOV for seeing the pin.
It works just fine.
The new Mathews will be out November 15th.
