    Right now I am torn between the New Mathews Z7 and the Bow tech Destroyer 340. I have Been a bow tech guy for years, and with all the hype about the New Z7 I had to shoot one. I like it, but I also love the way the destroyer shot and it was shooting 331 fps and that wasnt fully rigged.

    Do any of yall have any input on these two bows??

    I'd spend some time over at Archery Talk. Lots of good info over there :)

    Probably close to some 2011 bows being announced!

    Lots of guys love their Destroyers, but some have reported breakage with the Flex roller arm. Probably a minor issue long fixed by BT though.

    The Z7 seems to get nothing but good reviews. I will own a Mathews someday, but for now, I'm pretty well hooked on Hoyt :tu

    I can't always agree with that when it comes to archery. Just too many variables.

    I want the most accurate bow that I can shoot fairly well :) I've shot many bows that are accurate but don't seem to fit me very well, and I've shot very comfortable bows that are not accurate for me.

    Shooting bare bows at a pro shop can only tell you so much. Many bows shoot very differently when loaded up with equipment. Many bows shoot differently at different weight settings, different arrows, different broadheads, etc.

    At some point you just have to select a bow and go with it :tu

    Yes but if you get a bow that fits you well and that is comfortable to shoot it makes all those vairables much easier to overcome.

    Can you please tell my why you think they aren't a superior bow? Please note....I didn't say THEEEE superior bow....I said it IS a superior bow.....

    I have shot Mathews for a decade now......and not only are they great bows....but their customer service is great!

    There are good bows out there.....and Mathews is one of them.....Period!:D
