Mathews Halon 6

Anyone have this bow? I just ordered mine. Curious what Stabilizer you are using. Also curious about arrow choice.

Re: Mathews Halon 6

Nice setup. What weight is that stabilizer? It seemed slightly top heavy when I shot it so curious what guys are doing to get it balanced right. Is that a 7? Do you have it maxed at 70#? I will gave 29.5 draw, maxed at 70# and im trying to figure out what arrow I need for proper spine without going insane heavy.

No it's a 6 with a 27" draw. Yep maxed out at 70# and boy is it a smooth 70lbs. It didn't feel top heavy to me. Not sure what the stabilizer is but everything feels pretty balanced. I shoot vap v1 350's

Re: Mathews Halon 6

I shot the demo at Eds which is only at 65 and the draw is 29 I think. Smooth, quiet, fast, everything I want in a bow. Hoping 29.5 wont cause a pinch with that short ATA but my friend is an engineer at Mathews and said I should be fine. I just can't find anyone with my draw length, pulling 70 to find out what arrow they are sending down range. Spine selection has always been rocket science to me and I want to get it right with a bow producing like this one. I guess I'll be using the Easton Chart and just hope I nail it.

Re: Mathews Halon 6

I would like to shoot a Halon X, the X has the specs I like in a bow.

The older I get the better I was.

Re: Mathews Halon 6

depending on what arrow you get it will be around a 340 or 300 spine for easton.

Re: Mathews Halon 6

Alot of the reviews say it too but the cams are huge. It is 30" ata but you really do gain a few inches with those cams.

Shot one this weekend... LOVE IT. I am a old skool archer who appreciates a longer ATA, and its quite smooth. here comes the BUT... I love the draw cycle of my no cam, so I can't and won't give that up. I shot a Hoyt Defiant also.. that was a nice bow and I never shot Hoyt's well for some reason.

Look into Bee-Stingers. Go to their website and look at their advice on your style bow and how to stabilize it.
