    Does anyone have any news on when they will be released. I've seen Bear, PSE and Mission has released theirs. I'm getting anxious over here. It's either me buying a 2013 or if I like something from the 2014 line up. Getting Itchy Boys!!!

    Me too, I'm not a Mathews guy but I can't complain too much about their bows and I loke looking at all the new ones.

    I am a Hoyt guy so any news on Mathews and Hoyts 2014 bows would be fine by me!

    Yeah, I think that's about right. Todd will have killed a big buck with the new bow by then :busted:

    I am excited to see what they are coming out with. To bad I wont be able to get one though. Still a few years off from a new bow.

    I will be taking a hard look at all the new bows coming out this year. I plan on getting a new bow so I will be going around and shooting anything and everything once they get to the shops.

    Hope mathews improved from the chill. Draw cycle was terrible imo.

    That was my experience shooting the chill as well. Compared to my z7 I felt it was a considerable step in the wrong direction.

    I will be purchasing a new bow this winter/spring time. Granted my old PSE Nova is pretty out dated compared to what is out there now. Going to be checking out the new Matthews stuff, hopefully find something I like as much as their old Solo Cam model. Man that thing was just awesome. I am sure they have improved more since.

    I've got a Chill and I think the draw cycle is great. :confused:

    Also, it's tough to compare draw cycle on a 2 cam bow and a single cam. They're two totally different animals.

    This isn't exactly Mathews but the new mission Blaze looks awesome. 33 A2A, 340 ibo, and under $600? That's great!

    After shooting the chill yesterday I would compare the draw cycle right down there with the ZXT. Terrible IMO as well. Colors are nice but it just has to feel right and it didn't.

    I compared the mathews side by side with Hoyt spyder turbo, spyder, bowtech experience, insanity cpx APA mamba and pse hammer. I was comparing apples to apples. All bows were in spec.

    I have no sponsors and am not affiliated with any bow companies. If you draw a chill next to a spyder turbo you will feel a noticable difference. Just a bad year for mathews I think.

    I doubt it was a bad year for them. I didn't like the draw on the Chill but there are people out there who do like it and trust me they bough into it. And the Creed it's made them a killer. They aren't the leading brand for no reason. I am not affiliated with any bow companies either but I started by shooting PSE and I'll never switch away from Mathews. Can't wait to get my hands on my first Mathews.

    By no way are you comparing apples to apples. You are comparing a 3 inch cam to a 5 inch cam!!!! the only apple to apple would be the DNA or INSANITY. Anyway all of the bows that you listed are all modular as well and the chill and creed both are draw spec bows. also A Hoyt does not use large cams so it DOES NOT compare. But thats my opinion.
