Love them or hate them, Mathews has been one of the leaders in compound hunting bows for many years. With a spot at the top of the archery world comes criticism and high standards.
It is no secret that Mathews has caught a significant amount of heat for lackluster releases and more of the same when releasing new flagship bows. Many have said "they are done", "they have been caught", or "focus on making guitars full time".....
All opinions aside the announcement made last night at 12am has the archery world buzzing. Early reports are positive from even the critics. Mathews No Cam technology is simple yet revolutionary.
If you are a Mathews fan or not it is fair to say the company needed something big. They needed a huge change, something to make waves. Archers were asking for more speed, longer Axle to Axle and more.
Without shooting the bow the only grade we can give Mathews is based on the level of excitement from social media and forums. So far, so good.
In all four bows were announced, three specific to target and one geared towards the hunter.
