Tis the season bowhunters await with eager anticipation, when bow manufacturers unveil and introduce the latest and most innovative new bow lineups. This years' Mathews bow lineup has something in it for every bowhunter, including the new NO CAM HTR and NO CAM TRG, featuring Mathews' new NO CAM ST Technology, and the high performance dual-cam Chill X Pro and a new value option in the Solocam line, the Z2.
By utilizing two circular and concentric string tracks for a better-balanced system, Mathews' new NO CAM ST Technology produces a radically smooth draw cycle for a straighter, more level nock travel, resulting in superior accuracy.
The new NO CAM HTR is completely driven by the truly integrated NO CAM ST Technology system with shorter, tougher quad limbs, a less-reflexed riser, twin Harmonic Stabilizers and Mathews' patented Focus Grip. Additionally, Rock Mods in 65-, 75- and 85-percent let-off are standard on the NO CAM HTR. The NO CAM ST will be available in five finishes, including the new Stone Tactical and Lost Camo OT.
Because of the balance and accuracy the NO CAM ST Technology yields, Mathews also developed a new target bow for 2015, the NO CAM TRG. With a less-reflexed riser featuring new cut-outs for added strength and stability and twin Harmonic Stabilizers tuned into the system, the NO CAM TRG is available in 7-, 8- or 9-inch brace heights and customizable with Rock Mods 65 percent or 75 percent let-off.
Mathews also took the proven design of the Chill X and expanded the hybrid bow a step further with the Chill X Pro. With an integral grip for competitive shooters and Rock Mods for a solid back wall and custom let-off, the features on the Chill X Pro make this one powerful rig, no matter what you hunt.
Also new for 2015 is the compact, lightweight and agile Z2, based on Mathews' popular Solocam bow designs. It features a Reverse Assist Roller Guard for a silky smooth draw, a generous brace height for added forgiveness and speeds up to 330 fps, making this one serious rig. Now updated with the popular Focus Grip, the Z2 is available in Lost Camo OT and is an excellent value for bowhunters.
