The Mathews Creed XS continues the trend of Mathews following a new bow release with a shorter version of the same bow the next year. Last year, Mathews released the Creed, which sported a 30-inch axel-to-axel measurement; naturally, this year Mathews released a new bow with a 28-inch measurement. The Creed XS is not a fast shooting bow, but it screams forgiveness. With a short axel-to-axel measurement, the riser is actually the majority of that measurement, which means it is very stable for a shorter bow and will hold well on target. The 7.5-inch brace height means the bow is going to be very forgiving as well. Short axel-to-axel measurement of 28-inches. A long riser measurement of 24.58-inches for increased stability. Forgiving 7.5-inch brace height.
The Mathews Creed XS does not bring anything Earth shattering to the market. Instead, it takes what Mathews has done well in the past and offers it in the simplest form. The compact XS flat out shoots. Although the speed is not setting records, the smooth draw cycle and forgiving shot are welcomed additions hunters are sure to love. For shooters interested in lightweight, compact hunting bows, the Creed is going to be a fine option.
User Reviews - Compound Bow Choice. Very nice upgrade to my trusty old Q2, pleasantly surprised at forgiveness and shootability. Version: 2014 Mathews Creed XS. Pros: I was really impressed with the portability of this bow as a tree stand hunter. I also found it to be astheticly pleasingly, particularly the riser design and lost camouflage colors.
I have been very pleasantly surprised by my ability to shoot this bow accurately, having been used to shooting a 34 A2A bow. I also noticed immediately how 13 years of technological advancement made the Creed XS a big step up from my beloved Q2 (which I will keep). For one thing, there is absolutely no perceptible shock and the bow stays stationary in my relaxed hand upon release. Bow instead of a #60 to 70. I dispatched a big-bodied central MD 4-point with this bow last week and can't wait to get back in the tree.
This is my first Mathews I'm not a follower I chose this one because it's the best I tried out. Version: 2014 Mathews Creed XS, 5 stars. I like th fact it didn't try to jump forward at a relaxed state.Lite weight was a big plus for me as I do a lot of spot n stalk. Has a good draw stop. Cons: Nothing to talk down as if now. If it performs in cold and snow like it does now I'll rate it a 10 of 10. Has a natural fit at the grip. Has a good balance and good fall away. No kick back or jump Ibo speed is not a big factor for me at 321.
It makes up for it as a flat shooter. The black on black with crimson limb brackets, wheel, pep , dampers zebra string & string stop with the black quiver and crimson insert is just a bonus. Smooth draw, accurate shooter, awesome hunting bow. Pros: nimble, smooth draw cycle, lightweight.
Cons: the draw length was 1/2 off my traditional mathews draw length. I have taken 2 deer with the Creed xs, it was built with the tree stand hunter in mind.
The short ATA is offset with the generous brace hieght making the Creed an accurate shooter. I had a qad on it and tuned up along with sight pins set out to 40yrds in less than an hour and a half. Took it out and hunted with it that afternoon taking a doe at 33yrds.Love the Creed and all trree stand hunters will too. Pros: ATA size, light weight, fast for a compact, VERY accurate, forgiving, VERY quiet, and no vibration. This is my second Mathews bow. Swapped over my Apache drop away rest, HHA single pin sight, and peep sight. My bow is set at 60# and 28 draw. I have taken whitetails, hogs, and turkeys with it. Great bow for climber stand and blind shooting. The bow draw cycle is smooth as silk and comes to a great solid stop. I can go out and target shoot for hours with this bow. There is no creep or jump. It is a very accurate bow for it's size.
I cannot say enough about all the good the bow offers. The only con is it't cost. It is a very expensive bow and there are many other options in that kind of price range.
Best way to figure out what bow is for you is to get to a shop and shoot some bows. You will find the one that is "right" for you.
Made for the Tree Stand Hunter. Very smooth draw, well balanced, very forgiving and light weight. Cons: Have not come up with any-negatives after three years in the field. Best bow I have owned to date.
I traded in my Z7 Extreme for the Creed Xs wanting something a little lighter as I age and have to admit I was a little skeptical at first but very quickly fell in love with the bow. I live in an area that has a deer management program for bow hunters and have taken over 20 deer in the last three years with the Creed XS and unlike in the past I do not plan on trading this one in anytime soon.
