Z7 Extreme vs. Hoyt CRX 32 or Maxxis 31
« on: September 20, 2011, 07:41:53 PM »
Who's got the Mathews Z7 Extreme, or Hoyt Maxxis 31 or CRX 32?  What do you like, what don't you like?  In the market and these are the 3 I wanna shoot and possibly buy.  Breaking the cardinal rule, new bow after the season has started, but you get new stuff when you have the cash!! ##$%#117

I love my z7 extreme awesome Bow shoots like a dream smooth as silk and  so accurate  it scary.

Iwas shooting unbeleivable groups with 5 minutes of seeting it up. Setup was a breeze almost no adjustment straight out of the box. I love mine, and i also have a Monster.

I'm a Mathews guy but I suggest shooting demos of all of them and let the bows tell YOU which one is right for YOU. Good luck and let us know how it goes.

I shoot the extremes bigger brother the magnum and love it.  I loved the extreme too I just loved the magnum more.  The extreme is a super awesome bow for its size.  It has no jump at all when you shoot it for being so fast and light.  I am a mathews nut and work at a scheels that is the mathews dealer for the area.  If I knew I wouldn't get in trouble I would just sit in the range and shoot the bows all day. @--0--0118

Just picked up a new Hoyt Alphamax32 a couple of weeks ago and love it. Light, short, fast and deadly accurate. I like the dead stop at full draw. Try them all and you will know which on is right for you. Good Luck on your search

I have a Z7 Extreme and just what everyone else said about them, I love it.
Smoothest, most quiet bow I have ever shot.  And probably one of the easiest bows to dial in.
Hunting is a way of life: Love it, Teach it, Live it. But most of all.... RESPECT IT and pass it on!

I got the Z7 Extreme and when I was shooting all the bows I could before I bought mine I was stuck between the Extreme and the Hoyt. I ended up getting the Z7 and LOVE IT. Very smooth and just a nice bow. Shoot them all and see what fits YOU the best. I think either way you will be happy.

I got the Z7 Xtreme a week ago today.
I still can't believe how smooth and quiet it is.
Very easy to shoot.
You will just have to go with the one that fits your hand and gives you "that feel".
Good luck, it's a fun process.

Every bow is different to everyone.  I go with what I shoot better and for me it has continued to be Hoyt.  The Mathews Z7 is a very smooth draw bow but it didn't feel right to me.  Try them all, go with what YOU shoot better and enjoy the season.

Every year there is the next new bow. I held out and bought a Hoyt Lazer at a year end close out at my local pro shop. Bow is a charm and I saved a few bucks by buying "last year's model". Kind of what I do with cars and trucks ##$%#1118
