M1 Mathews


Shwangman

Recommended Posts

After months of looking and testing out bows I have narrowed it down to a M1 Mathews. The only question I have left is there any difference in years ? I'm currently looking at a 2001 and a 2003. Thanks

Not for the MQ1, other than age. grin.gif Something like my Black Max, there is a difference, like the older Black Max didn't have the dampeners and string supressors that the newer one's have.

You should go to mathews site and check out all the bows they made. It will show what bow was made when.

I shot an MQ1 for a few years. I don't think the MQ1 had any new "versions". The one thing it doesn't have that the newer Mathews have is the built in dampners.

I shot my MQ1 for six years and the guy I sold it to loves it. I just felt like upgrading.

Thanks guys, purchased a MQ1 on Friday while heading down to Houston County for deer hunting, met the guy on I-90 and I'm sure the people driveing by was wondering what was going on! Great looking bow. The guy told me he has shot 7 deer in two years in Wis so I know the bow has it, now I have to guy in tune!! Thanks.

I had the same bow for many years until it was stolen from me at an archery range. I loved the bow and as all Mathews bows do, it shot fantastic. Make sure you put some Sims products on it to lessen any vibrations. I now own a Q2XL and love it too. Mathews makes a great product.

Thanks Treeclimber. Are these easy to install or should I take to a bow shop and they will know what I need and what to do? I did alot of checking before I brought this and all the comments that I read or got like yours was positive! Thanks again.

I would recommend getting a good vibration eliminator stabilizer which you can put on yourself, also you should get limb savers made by Sims or whatever brand you prefer. These normally have a self adhesive on them so you can do this on your own also. The only thing you will not be able to do is install the string leeches (string silencers} unless you have a have a bow vice. I will have to look at where you live but if you are close enough I would do all of it for you and paper tune your bow for nothing.

      On the south end...   Lots of ice on the main basin, but it is definitely deteriorating.  Some anglers have been fishing the open water at the mouth of the Rainy River in front of the Lighthouse Gap.  The rest of the basin is still iced over. Pike enthusiasts caught some big pike earlier last week tip up fishing in pre-spawn areas adjacent to traditional spawning areas.  8 - 14' of water using tip ups with live suckers or dead bait such as smelt and herring has been the ticket.  Ice fishing for all practical purposes is done for the year. The focus for the basin moving forward will be pike transitioning into back bays to spawn,  This is open water fishing and an opportunity available as the pike season is open year round on Lake of the Woods. The limit is 3 pike per day with one being able to be more than 40 inches. All fish 30 - 40 inches must be released. With both the ice fishing and spring fishing on the Rainy River being so good, many are looking forward to the MN Fishing Opener on Saturday, May 11th.  It should be epic. On the Rainy River...  An absolutely incredible week of walleye and sturgeon fishing on the Rain Rainy River.     Walleye anglers, as a rule, caught good numbers of fish and lots of big fish.  This spring was one for the books.   To follow that up, the sturgeon season is currently underway and although every day can be different, many boats have caught 30 - 40 sturgeon in a day!  We have heard of fish measuring into the low 70 inch range.  Lots in the 60 - 70 inch range as well.   The sturgeon season continues through May 15th and resumes again July 1st.   Oct 1 - April 23, Catch and Release April 24 - May 7, Harvest Season May 8 - May 15, Catch and Release May 16 - June 30, Sturgeon Fishing Closed July 1 - Sep 30, Harvest Season If you fish during the sturgeon harvest season and you want to keep a sturgeon, you must purchase a sturgeon tag for $5 prior to fishing.    One sturgeon per calendar year (45 - 50" inclusive, or over 75"). Most sturgeon anglers are either a glob of crawlers or a combo of crawlers and frozen emerald shiners on a sturgeon rig, which is an 18" leader with a 4/0 circle hook combined with a no roll sinker.  Local bait shops have all of the gear and bait. Up at the NW Angle...  Open water is continuing to expand in areas with current.  The sight of open water simply is wetting the pallet of those eager for the MN Fishing Opener on May 11th.   A few locals were on the ice this week, targeting pike.  Some big slimers were iced along with some muskies as well.  If you like fishing for predators, LOW is healthy!

      Early bird gets the worm some say...   I have it on good authority that this very special angler caught no walleyes or muskies and that any panfish caught were released unharmed.        
    • smurfy

    • CigarGuy

      How many walleye were on the stringer on their way out??? 
    • CigarGuy
      Saw the first boat of the year yesterday, heading towards Black Bay 
    • SkunkedAgain
      All of the webcams appear to be ice-free except for shore ice. It looks like you could navigate most of the way on Vermilion at this point. Happy boating everyone.

      I'm the same on honey do lists. I seem to feel better doing my list than my wife's list, even though they my be similar.
