Thumbs up New Mathews Chill X

Should be out soon. I was about to leave Mathews for Hoyt for 3D, but this bow might keep me around. We'll see soon I suppose.

Mathews continues to come out with nothing. They just tweak an old model, add an X and call it a new bow. Chill, chill x, Z7 , Z7 extreme, z7 tactical, z7 magnum, come on. Come out with a new bow already. Oh we'll! I shoot bowtech

I'm not a fan of the mathews models of the past few years, but I personally think that the Chill-X is a step in the right direction.

I think that the success of bows like the Elite Energy 35 had to be one of the driving forces for this model.

Well at least Bowtech got past the exploding point , maybe next they will hit the speeds they are named after. That makes as much sense as the above.

The reality is there isn't a ton of "technology" upgrades to modern compound bows. Hoyts basic design hasn't changed in a decade. Split limbs, cutaway risers, cam and a half system. Fact is most bow manufacturers have 2 or 3 cams, couple different limbs and couple different risers. They mix and match those components and give them different names.

IMHO the real advancements are in individual component improvements. More efficient cams, more advanced limbs, lighter and stronger risers. Great product development companies are usually great at iterative improvements. Radical changes and constant "all new" is usually indicative of more problems than improvements.

What I've heard is 35" ATA, 7" BH, the Chill cam system with new draw mods named Rock mods that have a more solid back walls and come in a 75% let off. Don't know if it's same limbs on a longer riser or whole new configuration. IBO speeds are supposed to be wicked.

I think the option of a 75% or 85% let-off with more speed out of the 75%! Looks like great specs.The Chill R shoots awesome! Definitely better than any Bowtech I've ever shot so if the Chill X shoots even better than all I'll be able to say is WOW!

ill say this in the nicest way possible. Those are words of someone who doesn't shoot various types of bows enough to see that even minute changes can make a big difference. And im a hoyt guy.

But yall will truly love the new rock mods....I promise.

Man, there are a lot of other things you could say about the best selling bow company in the world, except that. I shoot a chill because it's my favorite bow out there, but I am far from a fanboy. I don't like any other mathews bow out AT ALL. But, every slight change made is significant, and mathews has found a niche and is outselling it's competitors by cranking out small but significant improvements every year. I'll never be a solocam shooter, but mathews found a way to make really nice dual cam bows. They are far from a one trick pony, and just because the names don't change doesn't mean things don't get better.

Plus it's a Mathews (I've owned 4) so that means knock 5-8 fps off what they are advertising.

Then do you reductions for draw length, dressed string, any extra arrow weight and any reduced pounds if any.

It gives a comparison as a standard to other models and gives you a basis to see what you will be shooting at your, poundage, dl and arrow weight.

I shoot an APA, they are sweet bows. Wish they had dealers in our area. If it was Mathews they could go 5 years rolling all those goodies out. 1st bare bow, 2nd broadhead wrench, 3rd nock tuner, 4th sharpener, and finally the built in press... with each year going up $100

I have no doubt it'll be nice for that. Have to have something pretty special other than the name to beat out the E35 in that spec range IMO though. Elite is rated a little slower but I bet they're pretty dang close if setup identical.

The one thing I do like about this bow for Mathews is that it doesnt have a tiny mans ata.. I'd like to try one when our shop gets one. I haven't shot a longer ata Mathews in quite a while.

My only complaint with the Chill X and Mathews in general is that Mathews doesn't build many bows for 31-32" DL ppl. Yes there is the Z9 and MR8 but I don't want that long of a BH. Ppl want the monster series for speed that the point of the monster series. So my question to Mathews is why cant you build a 31" DL bow on like a Chill R platform so you keep a IBO over 340? I am not saying Mathews is a bad or terrible bow but they would do themselves a favor by building a better Long Draw line up.

Just the facts...

My ChillR shoots a 309 grain arrow at 29" draw and 61 pounds 329fps. For comparison, my RPM 360 shoots the same arrow at the same draw length and poundage 331fps.

I say that is fantastic. Both bows shoot very well.

I'm no fan boy. I manage a shop that sells PSE, Hoyt, Mathews, Mission, Bowtech, and Diamond.

They ALL make nice looking, nice shooting bows.

Yea, marketing has a lot to do with it, just like every major bow company out there. At least you have some substantiated reasoning behind your argument, which is more than guys who like to bash mathews.



On a different note, thanks for serving the community and stay safe out there man.
