Compound Bow Mathews C4 - how long can it go on for?

Mathews are still making that bow, and its design goes back to the C3 and C2. I wonder how long they will continue to make it? I have had a few C3's and C4's over the years, and have a C3 in bits which I might resurrect one day.

well, as long as they've got shirts and hats with 'Mathews solocam' on, it's probably a good idea to sell at least one bow that comes as a solocam! :laughing: and that way, when archers inconveniently go round breaking world records with an old bow, people can still buy it! (though I think Braden's 718 was an Apex 7)

True about the Solocam marketing. Yes Braden was a shooting an A7 I believe, but the only trouble with them over modern designs is that you have no adjustability on the cam.

There are bows out there that are single cam and have a rotating module. If Mathews did the same for the C4 it could go on for a lot longer.

Agree, with a more adjustable cam it would be a winner, but I guess it is never going to be evolved. Plus Mathews have dropped "Solocam" from their logo so that might pave the way for quietly dropping it....

Hey, of course there is the old if it ain't broke...., I still believe its one of the best target bows out there. I like the cams as they are, mods would just make it less efficient at certain lengths. Besides, the minimax cam has 1/2" adjustment and you can get more with the string/cable. I've shot the TRX and its great, but a completely different feel. ie more aggressive draw/valley. Wasn't too long ago Wifler picked up a C4 after leaving recurves behind, and promptly won Vegas. C4 we salute you :)
