Archery / Re: Mathews Z7 timing
« on: August 16, 2019, 12:50:00 PM »
I have the Matthews Z7 and I had my bow set up by a pro shop and it's not centre of the timing circle, but it shoots awesome. I was told that the timing is worse when it's centre of the timing window, myself and my hunting partner both shoot the same bow and they are both slightly off from centre of the timing window. I'll post a pic when I get chance, as i marked my timing spot with silver marker pen, my advice is don't worry about it too much .

I m not hunting this year, but I've been using the 10" B-stinger on my Matthews Z7 for the last 3yrs, really like it and have no plans on upgrading. It is a little heavy, especially on my Z7, which isn't the lightest anyway, but I definitely feel more confident at holding on target, just need an elk to walk in front of me, don't mind if it's Cow or Bull for my first.

Knowledge doesn't necessarily mean success, but it helps, so read, watch and listen to as much advice as possible.

In preparation for the hunt I'm doing Shaun-T's Insanity, upper strength on freeweights, running and hikes with 35-40lb backpack. Determination levels are sky high.

I most excited about taking in the views, smells and awesomeness off the Colorado Rockies... getting my first Elk would be really cool too, but memories of a great hunt are more important.

Can't really add more to what's been said already, North facing slopes, benches, aspens, water sources and food are things elk look for, so good luck, have fun and enjoy the whole elk camp experience.  :upthumb:

Ive heard good things about RMC Cutthroat but havent tried them myself yet

big44a4, I took a look at the Cutthroat today and like you said they get great reviews and they fly under the same flag as the VPA Terminators I currently use, so with that being said, I think I'll give them a try..... they're also cheaper than most single bevel BH's too.

I'd buy new, I've had my jetboil for 12yrs and its still going strong, brilliant piece of kit for Backcountry hunting.

Thanks Guys, sorry not replied earlier, work is busy at the no.

Cohunter, thanks fella, since I was 15 I'd wanted to hunt Elk in the backcountry, after reading a story in a magazine about some crazy dudes who disappear into the mountains with bows to hunt an animal called an Elk, I was sold. Took me till I was 37 yrs old to finally fulfil my dream, 10yrs and 5x trips later I feel like I belong to the mountains.... I love it and I ain't even got an Elk yet(been real close, but the stars haven't quite lined up for me yet. 7x7 herd bull I called in to 54yds being my best yet).

My reason for switching is partly due to having to drop draw weight and the other being resharpening. My shoulder has always had issues with drawing too much weight, my bow is set for 67#, but that will have to drop as I cannot pull that back at the moment and wish to find a head that will get penetration when i drop the poundage and still cause damage. I'm also after something I can resharpen, rather than replacing blades, which in a country that doesn't allow bowhunting, it kinda gets expensive to ship in from USA.

Thanks again for the replies guys.

Hi Guys, Im prepping for my bi-yearly trip from UK to the Colorado Rockies for Elk Archery Season, I'm yet to get my first Elk, but I'm certain thing will happen when they're supposed too.
My question is, I'm looking at switching from my 125grn Slick tricks and 125grn VPA Terminator 3x blade to a 125grn single bevel 2x blade BH, but cannot afford the Grizzly Stick or Ashby. Anybody use a single bevel 125grn and if so, what do you use, why and would you recommend.
