 2013 Mathews Creed Reviews and Pricing

    Mathews Creed Review

    The folks at Mathews have just released the 2013 Mathews Creed.  In their own words they have created a state of the art bow from technologies that have proven themselves in past bows.  So have they created anything new or are they just recycling the same old gimmicks and charging you $1000 bucks? Let’s take a deer look in this Mathews Creed Review.

    Check out this brand new Mathews Creed Video that was just released on the Mathews site.  You can start the video and listen to the audio while you continue reading the review.

    Mathews Creed Split limbs

    Mathews Creed Split limbs

    One quick look and this bow looks like a Z7 or Heli M.  A closer look and you realize there are several changes.  This bow is like a Frakenstein of the Mathews engineers.  The split limbs jump out at you pretty quickly.  And then you see the limb pockets.  Didn’t Mathews say limb pockets were not needed any longer?

    Mathews Creed Draw Cycle

    The new 2013 Creed is powered by the SimPlex Cam.  It’s creators have dubbed it as the smoothest single cam bow EVER!  The draw will definitely be smoother than its Monster brothers.

    Mathews Creed Back Wall

    It looks like the Creed got the back wall cam stop from the Heli M.  In fact, many people are calling it the split limb Heli M.  The wall is solid and sure to make for more consistent groups.

    Mathews Creed Noise and Vibration

    Harmonic stabilizers are standard on the aluminum riser.  The strings are also equipped with Monkey Tails and come to rest on the dead end string stop.  The general report from most of the first shooters is a very solid bow.  No movement or shock is felt or noticed on the shot.  It is very much dead in hand.  Since no vibration is noticed it is only logical that very little noise comes after the shot.

    Review Conclusion

    This bow just hit pro shops on November 5th, Today!  I hope to have an opportunity to shoot it in the next couple of days.  In the meantime I will continue to update this review.  Youtube and other sites should have some fresh information coming out very soon.  We also hope hope our own BowCritic visitors will leave a Creed Review if they have had a chance to try it out.

      Do not buy the 2013 Creed. I was very disapointed, i bought this bow and on the first day had problems. The strings kept coming off the cam, i took it back and got a new one on the same day just incase that one had a defect. The dealer re-stringed it and it did the same to him. They gave me a new one, I took the other new Creed home and first shot (with an arrow, not dry) and the limb snapped. Very disapointed with Mathews.

      Had all my gear stolen on 10-24-12. Went into Adams Archery to start looking at new bows and said Mathews was coming out with their new lines on 11-5-12. It was a choice between the Hoyt Spyder and the Mathews Creed. The Creed and Hoyt were both smooth shooters, solid back wall, the winning factor for the Creed was I felt it had a smoother draw cycle. Order a custom set up and hope to have it soon. Great design, great shooting bow, great job Mathews.

      Got my Mathews Creed bow this past weekend. What an awesome experience when first shooting her. Light as a feather, perfect for the South African hunter and absolutely no movement after the release. This definitely helps for consistency of shots with zero noise. Well done to Mathews.
      My only dislike is the grip on the Tactical Creed. I prefer the wooden grips.

      After shooting ~800 arrows the bow started to produce a loud resonating noise. Bow shop installed a new cam from company. Didn’t resolve the problem. Company sent a new set of limbs. Noise did not disappear.
      I have returned the bow.

      Shot all the new flagship bows for this year from Bowtech, Hoyt and Mathews. Have always been a Hoyt shooter and the staff at the bow shop were obviously Hoyt fans as well. Try as I might to find something to top the Creed, nothing could change my mind after shooting it. Great shooting Bow!!

    13. Went to look for a new bow New Years day. Shot Mathews Zxt first, (was what I went to look at) Shot Hoyt, Bowtech, Pse, and last bow brought out was the Creed. OMG what a bow, the draw cycle is smooth as silk, the back wall solid as can be, no “jump” or movement at all and very quiet! I wouldn’t have cared the cost of this bow, I would have paid whatever they were asking. Have been shooting for 4 months now and love the bow even more than the first day I shot it. By the way, was grouping under a inch while test shooting with a match stick for a sight, no peep, no kisser, just a match stick at 20 yards.

      What an amazement this bow is. absolutely balanced and dead at the shot and couldn’t ask for more accurate bow. Gave me a hole new outlook on what mathews can bring to the table. This is in opinion the most underated bow for the 2013 line up. beware it will cost you allot in broken arrows from the nasty accuracy scared to shoot more then one arrow at 20 yards now.

    15. Chris, I agree with you. I drawed back with the creed and the entire bow snapped in half, leaving the arrow lodged in my throat. Ah just playin. Mathews is a great company and will continue to put out great products. I own a Z7 and will be purchasing a creed. This bow will awesome. Will return to put a review.

      Guys Chris is telling the truth about the limbs. I owened my tactical creed for all of maybe 3 weeks and my limb just cracked! Matherws is sending me a new set of limbs, But really 3 weeks before bow opener and now I don’t have my bow to shoot for a week! Love this bow, but very disapointed in this, as I read more and more forums it is actually a common problem. I will give the replacement limbs a chance before I dog on Mathews too much.

      I have had my Creed for about one week and have been shooting a lot. Really love it so far. If I do my part the bow functions flawlessly. I find the Creed much more user friendly than many other bows.

      I purchased this bow to replace an older model Hoyt which has been handed down to my oldest son. Nothing wrong with the Hoyt at all. Anyways, on with my review…of my new Mathews Creed. After purchasing, accessorizing, tuning and sighting I drove home with a huge smile on my face. I’ve had the bow for roughly one month now and have run about 150 to 200 shots through it. No issues whatsoever with the bow. Just me acclimating to the new feel and speed. First, this bow is extremely light while at the same time SOLID in the hand. The grip is not too thin-nor too wide or chunky. The draw cycle is smooth, very smooth and abruptly stops. Hello back wall. Again solid. When released all I can say is tack driving accuracy shot after shot. Second, the folks who engineered this masterpiece obviously care a lot about the end user and don’t want any returns of their product. The Creed is a great looking bow that is power packed with the best technology and made in the USA American Craftsmanship. When you buy this bow and shoot this bow you will feel the enormous pride, the toil and sweat that comes from within when you want to the best. The Creed is everything and more I was looking for in a new bow and it just flat out delivers in quality, accuracy and complete performance. Thank you Mathews for putting all you had and all you are into this bow. You have made it easy for me to be a lifetime customer. AV.
