    I have a Z7 Xtreme and love it

    The DXT is a great bow also

    The new Helim is supposed to be the cats a$$ but I haven't shot one and won't as I don't need a new bow this year :D

    I'm hearing and reading that most guys choose the Z7 over the Helium.. my friend, just started a shop, they are selling all top brands, BowTech, Mathews, Hoyt, PSE, Elite, Mission, Diamond and he said that 9 out of 10 guys are picking the Z7 over the Helium... that's huge.. he also said many guys just can't shoot the Helium accurately.. target shooters for years have said, heavier is better.

    I picked the Helium up... nice bow, very light, too light? Don't know, soon as my arm is top shape, I'm going to put it and the Z7 up against each other.

    Found a bow that fit my 34 inch draw(hence: LONGDRAW) and got a nice deal on it via Ebay.

    I have shot both and didn't like either but, I did like the Z7 over the Heli M. I wasn't impressed at all With the Heli M.

    I own an original Switchback. I don't think I will ever own another bow. This thing is 5 years old now, and still shoots like the day I bought it.

    I've had a Mathews Q2, DXT, Z7, and ordered a Heli-M mid nov (still haven't got it) out of the first three Z7 was the best. Hopefully my Heli comes in this week. So I can really get some arrows through it. I've only shot them at the shop. I'm having major withdraws.

    I dont own a mathews but i did shoot the helim. To me it was pretty smooth which i liked, but at the shot it had a lot of noticable vibration.

    Depends on what type of shooting you are doing?

    hunting - Can't beat the Helim. We haev sold a TON of them already this year.

    3D- Long drawlegnth shooters - The Conquest 4 or the Apex 7
    Short draw shooters - The MR7

    Spots & Field - Hard to beat the Apex 7 or 8

    I like to be one that is not Bow manufacturer biased... But I doubt I'll ever own a Matthews.... Just don't like them... at all... But IF they were the only bow man. left on the planet and all other bows were obsolete...

    I'd probably go with a Monster...
