I have not seen it yet. My Mathews guy went out of business earlier this year. I used to go shoot all the new bows there. I still have my Drenalin which is still my favorite bow I've ever had in my hands.

I have shot one some at the shop. Very nice bow, however, I will stay with my Z-7 extreme.

To me, and this is just my 2 cents, it just felt as if the bow wants to jump forward with the shot, very very slight, but that's what I felt. Still very nice bow, just not my taste.

The Heli'm is a great bow.  I have shot it but didn't upgrade because I just upgraded last year.  It has a solid back wall which is nice so you don't get the slop at full draw.  Its extremely lightweight and fairly fast.  I would go shoot it if an archery shop around you still has one.  mathews just came out with the new models for this coming year already too so I would shoot them as well.  their motto this year was keep it simple, the bows aren't as fast, but still top of the line IMO.  Good luck and let us know what you decide!

When I bought my new bow in the spring it came down the the Heli-m and the Bowtech Invasion. The Heli-m I shot belonged to the tech at the bow shop, he had it for about a week and let me shoot it. Very nice is all I can say. His had the narrower rubber grip on it which I really liked rather that the wider wooden grip that comes with most Mathews bows. Very smooth draw cycle. You wouldn't be disappointed with this bow. BTW I bought the Invasion, just felt better all around to me.
