Matthews halon 32-6 " was anti matthews"
Well finally went to the dark side. I maybe have shot a matthews bow like 3 times my entire life. Went to the pro shop was checking out the hoyts, glanced at the matthews on the rack and was like God those things ugly. Picked one up was even more shocked what is this a brick with 22's for cams. Picked up hoyt and went and shot. Few guys come in with the whole line up of the halons.
I set my feelings aside and shot the halon 6 first. First pull kinda ok didn't like the grip, pulling back thought ok not to to bad. Good back wall. Released I was like wow junk. Didn't give it a chance. Couldn't get over the hand position, and the weight for a bare bow.
Shot the 5 not for me, I'm to torquey with my grip. Shot the 7 kinda weird.
Back up was the 6. Shot it about 15 times and started to love the feel. Nice everything steady pull, back wall, release. Hand position started feeling more natural. Accurate with nothing on. Was thinking I can't like a matthews what's wrong with me. Went up front and was like naw can't shoot a matthews.
Seen a halon 32-6. What's the difference just riser length ok I'll go shoot this one. Took the 6 and the 32 6 back shot around 50 more arrows out of both. Both bows were awesome shooters. Stood there thinking these bows are smoking accurate with nothing on. Dead in the hand, smooth, pulling 65 pounds felt like 50. Just enough feedback, was shocked on everything.
Decided on the halon 32-6 in stone. I'm a taller, lankier shooter. Longer riser helps with the string angle for longer draws. I still think it's ugly looks are growing on me though. I have owned all brands but matthews till now.
For anti matthews guys and girls blind fold yourselves shoot around 30+ shots and I think you'll like it. Don't complain about the extra 8oz of bow. I really feel if you hate the way it looks how it shoots makes up for it. For me it's the most accurate, forgiving bow I have ever shot. I'm a huge matthews basher and now I own one.
