Mathews Outback...

Postby Coleman24 » Thu Feb 18, 2010 12:25 pm

Just got myself a new bow, new bow to me was used before... Got it from a friend who decided he wanted an even faster bow to hunt Mulies, Elk, and other animals out west... Just wondering what others think of Mathews bows, and if anyone shot/shoot an outback how do you guys like it?

Im excited about it, considering Im finally getting rid of the youth bow haha

I shoot Mathews Q2 and it's gets the job done. All Mathews bows are fast and quiet. I killed two bucks this past season and both were pass throughs at 25 yards. the main thing i like about mathews is how wuiet they are. I took three shots on a doe on opening day before she figured out something wasnt right

I've been shooting my Outback since they came out. Got a couple rock solid kills on whitetails. about 70 yards of tracking between 3 deer (35,32,23 yard shots). I shoot Carbon express CX-300 but i'm looking at getting some new arrows and a new string/cable this offseason. You got a serious deer slayer for sure. I went out to north dakota a few years back to hunt mulies. I was putting 6 arrows in a paper plate at 50 yards. Just put your time in to get it shooting sweet and that bow won't let you down. I wouldnt flinch at taking that bow out west for elk, moose, bears, anything. Good bow, good luck.

That bow is capable of much better groups than that if you take the time to practice, practice, practice. Groups of 2 or 3 inches is not uncommon. But again, it takes practice and time spent shooting. It also depends on what you want out of your bow. If your good with a pie plate then all is well. JMHO.

Don't let anyone tell you otherwise, that Outback can take down anything. I have three elk with my Outback. It might not be the fastest, but it's smooth - and being as heavy as it is it'll keep you steady in the wind and rain. Have fun!

I figured if I could put them in a pie plate I could put them in a lung. My sight and rest were by no means top of the line when i went on that hunt. With my new setup im shooting a little tighter yet.

I think you made a great choice. I traded in my SQ2 lat year for a Drenalin, and wish I would have got an old Outback or Switchback. My Drenalin is fast and quiet, but nothing like the SQ2 or Outback. Good luck and enjoy!

99.9% of all misses are operator error, not the bow or gun. IF you put in the time, practice, more practice and be sure your bow is tuned (with your broadhead of choice) and a good range finder, you will be fine. Doesn't matter if it is a $300 or a $1200 outfit. Good Luck! They are great bows.
