Default Should I get a Triax?

I've heard once you shoot one, you won't want to shoot anything else. Should I get one?

Are you a Matthews guy already? I shot one this year... it shoots super super nicely... but i walked out with a Bowtech realm instead. I just really liked the "feel" of the draw of the realm more... also I am not a fan of the Matthews bows being top/front heavy. Its just gonna be a personal preference so definitely go shoot one, just don't be afraid to shoot others as well.

Love my new blacked out Triax. It is a heavy bow if you are going Western style stalk hunting, but very quiet and smooth to shoot. Actually sold my Hoyt Carbon Spyder and kept my Mathews Z7 as my backup bow.

I was looking at them online last night. They are super short and I am not sure how well that would work with my longer than average draw. I will shoot one when it comes time to buy as well as a Realm and Reign 6 and hopefully several others.

i was a Mathews fan boy for a very long time, ( don't shoot one now, and haven't for a couple years) each year I shoot all the new bows that come out. I shot the triax this last year, and yes it's nice. But so are just about all the other ones. I did not buy one, bought something else that felt ( shot) better for me. I believe they may be releasing a longer ATA in it next month. If I was you I would wait until the new release is out. Then you can get a better deal on the 2018 triax( model out now) if you decide you like it. Another thing i will say don't be brand loyal, they are not to any one, and shoot as many differant bows as you can. One will pick you.

I've had the Z7 for a few years now and had the Reezen before that. I didn't have a problem with either but I hear the Triax is the bomb.com. Just curious what you guys thought. Thanks for the feedback.

I too am looking at a New Triax. I have been shooting a Z-7 for a long time, 2010 I think.
It has served me well and still shoots as good as it it did day one if I do my part.

Maybe a trip to Santa Fe archery in the very near future.

Its all personal opinion so just go shoot them. Everyone has a different feel. I shot hoyt for 12 years and bought a triax this year but I was looking for a new bow and didnt like the current hoyt offerings.

I will say, I like the short AtoA length and dont notice it. I got rid of a 31" bow years ago because it was so harsh but the triax is much smoother.

Some shops may discount the Triax when the new bows come out. If you can wait a month, you may save $100 or so.

went and shot a bunch of different bows, kept coming back to the Triax and ended up leaving with one even though it was more than I planned on spending. It just felt so much better than anything else I shot.

I absolutely love mine, it’s the smoothest Mathews made since the SB and that’s saying something. It’s a short ATA and I was skeptical, I had the z7 extreme it was a great bow but would rip your shoulder trying to let down, this bow does not do that. Also extremely quiet and 0 hand vibration. For stand or pop up hunting it’s the way to go.

Went in a couple of weeks ago to get my bow checked out & asked if they had a LH triax in stock. He didn't think he had one in my specs. Got through shooting mine & was getting ready to leave. Richard hollers hey go shoot this. Bad move on my part. I left with a triax. I just started shooting a year ago ,but no doubt it is a great shooter. I have shot both my bows & definitely quieter & smoother to me. My other bow is a Monster Chill X.

I just put my Z7 in the closet and bought the Triax. Love it! Itís smooth. It has a harder stop to it when I come to full draw. My Z7 seemed a little spongey? May be just me but I like it. Shoot it and others and pick. Thatís most of the fun!!

Personally I'm a ATA guy... Therefore, I opted out of the Triax and had Mathews send me the Halon 32 - 6. This bow is by far my favorite since the Heli-m. Prior to the Heli-m Switchback was my favorite. Last season I used the Halon 6. Okay bow, changes were made on the 32 and again, it's my favorite Mathews since the Heli-m. I hope this helps and good luck!
