    Default ECLYPSE vs CREED

    I really am liking the ECLYPSE. I am leaning to the single cam for ease of tuning, and simplicity. I also really like the price. Is this a totally new bow for 2014? I wonder how it would compare to the Matthews Creed. It sure looks a lot better than the Creed. I can't wait to hear the low-down.

    Hey, I kinda answered this in another one of your threads, but the Eclypse is last year's Bengal, upgraded to split limbs and a new name. I have a friend that bought this bow, I helped him set it up, and he LOVES it... it is very smooth, quiet and virtually shock-free. I don't know how the split limb on this model will effect the bow, but my bet is that it just got better.

    Well I shot the creed and its a very nice bow, light, smooth draw and hardly any shock after the shot. I never shot a Bengal (eclypse) but I have held in my hands, its a light bow as well. I can't make a comparison but I justify price!
    Before I bought my 2013 Alien I was looking at the Mathews chill, and Bowtech Experience but I bought the Alien for price cuz it shot very similar if not better. So if I was you I'd try both then make your choice, either one will do but you'll pay more for one.

    I don't know how you guys think, but considering the price difference it's a no-brainer. Almost two for the price of one.

    I don't know about you but I agree with bfisher, If I can go buy 2 bows for the price of one then that's what I'd do!

    You guy's would cry if you knew what I paid for my 13 Alien Z. Even at those listed prices you can completely outfit a Martin, sight, rest, stab, silencers, quiver, and possibly arrows and still be under the others bare bow prices. Of the two in this thread, neither catch my fancy. I'd like to see the Xenon with nitro cams myself.

    I tried to talk Jake into sending me a new Lithium while my Onza was down, he laughed. If I sell my Diamond Iceman and some other stuff the Onza might have a run for it's money if I could find one with 50lb limbs.

    If that Iceman is a left handed FLX I'm interested.

    Right handed 2010 FLX 60lb limbs. Sorry NuttyNative. Martin will succeed if they will build solid bows at a price affordable to the general public and continue with their C.S. rehabilitation.
