Throw in some fancy “technology” terms and guys just jump at the chance to buy the “latest and greatest” bow lol. My 25yr old CSS bow will kill a deer just as dead as this $1299 bow, but each to their own…….

Keep shooting that old piece of junk! In a few years when your shoulders are giving out on you, you’ll wish you had bought one too!

Let’s see…you’ve never posted a dead animal pic with your old Drenalin, you call a deer stand a “hide”, you use tinypic.com to post photos and you claim the admin here are a bunch of liberals. Maybe it’s time to update SOMETHING!!!

Preach it!! We all, that have been in this game long enough, know how brutal some of that older equipment was...and yes it killed deer for us even back in the late 70s, early 80s. That doesn't mean we have to shoot it forever. Its a time to be thankful for improvements in technology for old joints and muscles...not a scrooge.

Hahahahaha......wait he has a Drenalin? and he's railing on guys that have newer bows. Hell the way he talked I thought he was shooting a cedar limb with buffalo sinew for string......

I still have my Mathews Legacy with the "Deerslayer Mod" to get it to 73lbs, if anyone wants a taste of that technology. Wear a mouthpiece though...

That 33 is an intriguing bow. Much better ATA than the previous offerings. Might get some guys to finally let go of their Traverse.

The “internally” mounting dovetail sight feature is one of the coolest things I have seen in a while. Nice that you don’t have to buy something new. Just slide your existing dovetail sight in and go.

The dovetail mounting system was for sure the highlight of the rig.

Checked them out today at hoffy's. Didn't care for the 29, but the 33 felt well balanced. If you are lookin for a new bow,they are definitely worth checking out.

I just bought The atlas right before season now . I’m going to have to check out that 33 . My atlas is just a little to bulky at 34.75 Axleto axle. And is pretty heavy. But know doubt that Atlas is a sweet shooter .

I would be interested for you to shoot the 33 and compare it to your Traverse. A 29 is a tiny tiny bow and would be dang tough to compare to a 33.

If I was a local pro shop I would have had both setup and ready to go. They are both going to sell like crazy!!!

Heck they possibly could have sold you a 33 today, but surely not if you can’t shoot one.

29” isn’t that small considering just last year they revealed a V3 27 and I’m still shooting the 28” ATA Triax.
I don’t get to play with longer axle to axle bows enough to really tell the huge difference between the two. All my bows were 30” or smaller.


The through riser mounted sight is pretty slick as is the studs for the SAS cable. I may not even look at a new one yet if it weren’t for those two options.

Just what you are used to I guess. Tried to shoot a 32” bow earlier this year and it felt very short. Used to 34-35 with 33 being a minimum.

I know Mathews has a ton of folks shooting sub 30” bows but it’s hard to shoot for a lot of us.

But to my original point, 33 down to 29 is a huge difference

One day I’ll shoot one >30”
Everybody says they are better shooting. As good as I do with a 28” ata bow @29.5” draw, I imagine I could do better with a longer bow.

I’ve only been on TBH a couple of years. I just read all 1600+ posts of the link to Ashley’s thread while holding my youngest of 3 and my second little girl. I’m a blubbering mess right now. The tragedy and outpouring of love in response to that tragedy was incredible.

An apology, at minimum, is necessary. The keyboard warriors need to move on to Facebook. There’s a lot of wonderful people here and ignorance is no excuse for being an @$$hole.

Pros don’t shoot tournaments with long ATA bows because short ATA bows are more accurate. LOL

All of that being said, I am interested to shoot the 33. Looks like a great bow.

I may try and make my 2014 Hoyt last another year. It shoots good and I feel like this will be the last year of the halon vxr v3x style riser and cams. They all look about the same to me.

I don’t get the dislike for the short ATA bow, I guess. You pull it back, aim, let it go. Smaller is easier in the tree, or even stalking. I don’t know why you’d want a more bulky bow, if the small one sends the arrow just as well?

Honestly, I'm afraid of going to shoot all the new bows. I know the upgrade from my Switchback would be huge, but unlike Smart, I've got too many hobbies (on top of being a tight arse).

I went and got a new sight earlier this year before going on my elk hunt. The guys at West Houston Archery were really trying to sell me on a new bow. They chuckled at me when I refused to shoot a new one.

Yep...all this talk about accuracy...there's certainly a place for longer ATA and they are more accurate but 99% of my harvesting is less than 30 yards. I'll never see any accuracy advantages the longer ATA affords and neither will the majority of people that bowhunt at that yardage.
I'll be trading my V3 31 for the 29. It's supposed to be here tomorrow!

LOL...The Moser nose probably helps a lot there. Shoot what fits and feels good to you. Accuracy is all about consistent repetition and muscle memory. Fit and feel are a big part of that . Longer 32-34 ata is where its at for me since I have to drag it around the wide Smart face and buckethead ..

I'll be trading my V3 31 for the 29. It's supposed to be here tomorrow!

1.25" on each end and .03 total pounds (4.5 versus 4.47 lbs) . ...I'm not seeing enough advantage in the downsize to justify the cost involved with a new bow. Where do you see the advantage? Getting your bow in your bow case easier?

Probably a piece of advise there that I should listen to. As my wife likes to point out, its not the number of hobbies, its the cost.

I hunt out of trees not a box. Long walks. Confidence. Preference. And because if I don't like it I'll try something else.

The guys selling their '18/'19/'20 Mathews to get the V3X what should us used bow buyers be looking for?

Out of the Traverse, Triax, Vertix, VXR, Halon which one(s) should we be on the lookout for?
