Last year, Mathews introduced its Z7™, and it quickly became the company's top-selling bow of all time. This year, there will be several variations of this bow, making a family of Z-Series™ bows including the Z7 Xtreme™ ($899). At 28" axle to axle, it's shorter than its older brother, but the slightly higher 73„8" brace height provides the balance as far as forgiveness and feel.
The Grid Lock™ Riser is strong yet light, keeping the approximate mass weight to a comfortable 3.98 lbs. The Reverse Assist™ Roller Guard and 80% letoff make it silky smooth to draw and hold. Harmonic Dampers™, Monkey Tails™, and a Dead End™ String Stop render noise and vibration undetectable.
It's available in draw lengths of 24"-30" (half sizes from 24½"-29½") and weights of 40, 50, 60, 65, and 70 lbs.
