Well its that time of year again and I am thinking about getting a Z7 Magnum
Dont know a lot about this bow but did shoot it yesterday at a shop and the draw does have a little hump at the end I notice but had no hand shock at all

can you guys give me some reviews...good...bad....ugly!!!
I want to make sure I am making the right choice!!

I was shooting a Legacy but upgraded to the Z7 Magnum this year and I love it. I was very surprised with how smooth the bow shoots, I can't feel any vibration, doesn't feel as heavy as I was thinking it would. In my opinion your making a great choice and could not go wrong with this bow...HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!

I love the way it shoots, the draw, the hold at full draw, the absence of shock and noise. But I am on my 3rd magnum. I have gone through 5 limb turrets on the first 2 bows. If this 3rd one messes up I am changing to a different model or something cause I'm tired of this issue





The other 2 turrets Mathews kept when we sent the bows back each time to swap out

I love mine. I shot all the Z7's and the Mag just talked to me. Smooth and Quiet! I did have bit of an issue getting it to tune...constant left tear no matter what I did. Ended up finding a bit of idler lean...once I got that sorted out it was smooth sailing. I'll be shooitng this for a long time.

What is mathews saying about this problem, do they know what is causing it? Do you just target shoot with the bow or is this from getting it ready to hunt?

I give you a lot of credit, that bow would have already been looooong gone if it were mine

Mathews said they have never seen that and don't have a clue as to what is causing it. I find that hard to believe when it has happened to me on 2 bows in a row. And it looks like the 3rd bow is starting to do it to. I only hunt and this close to the season I'm just trying to make it through before I change. It's too late to me to be swapping bows.

I haven't had any problems with mine yet and I hope that I don't. I paid way too much money for it to fall apart like that right before bow season. I hope this is something that mathews pays attention to and try to make sure they fix this problem.

So the magnums are having some breakage issues? Is this common for this model?

Had mine for a few months now and have had 0 problems with it. Wasn't looking for a new bow until I shot the Mag. Had to have it.

Magnum

4th Mathews boy I've owned. Smooth draw, fast, and accurate. Tagged 3 antelope last week with it.

Owned a Q-2, Legacy, and the Reezen 7.0 too. This Magnum is my personal favorite.:thumbs_up

I've shot 2-3 times a week since I bought it the March. Zero trouble.

So would this be the Speed bow in the Mathews lineup? Comparable to the PSE omen?

No issues with mine either...It doesn't have the speed of a Monster but 301fps with my short arms is plenty good.

Thats kind of a dumb question.... It should be compared to another single cam bow.... Comapre the omen to a monster
