The Hoyt has the smoothest, best draw cycle of any bow I’ve shot. This is important when trying to gain weight. Mathews’ draw cycle was just a little more aggressive. I was super surprised by my results here.
Since the launch of the Halon in 2016, Mathews’ CrossCentric series has come out on top or second in all of our annual bow tests. Difficult to argue against. I have the best compound bows for field & Streaming since 2013.
Mathews is quieter and has less shock, just sits there and has a bass note resonance. It is slower than the PSE. Also slightly more neutral for balance with no stitches. The Tophat system is easy to machine, but expensive if you have to buy parts.
The grip is below the center of the bow, which means it will be a bit top-heavy. A grip below center holds/aims incredibly well and these bows tune very/easy.
Just judging from friends and helping them dial in theirs, I have to agree that the Traverse and the Halon 32 seem to be the most forgiving bows Mathews has had recently.< /p>

The V3X 29 is pretty fast at 340 fps (IBO) and very similar to last year’s V3 in terms of performance, with a 6-inch strut height, 4, 47-pound bulk weight, 25.5-30 inch draw length, and a 60, 65, 70, or 75 pound weight range.
Quality CraftsmanshipMade in the u.s.a.
From start to finish, your bow will be designed and built by the same team that supplies our high-end Mathews bows, in same controlled quality limits of our Sparta, Wisconsin factory.
You’ll never see a carbon bow for Mathews. I have a feeling you might be right. The main reason I agree is just that the investment required to produce carbon fiber in the USA is extremely high.
There is nothing wrong with PSE quality and never has been. I have owned many PSE bows over the last 40+ and have not been dissatisfied with any of them. In fact, I currently own 2 of them. fact that they are one of the TOP 3 bow manufacturers.
In an article in Peterson’s Bowhunting, according to Rob Kaufhold, a former member of the U.S. Olympic Archery Teams: “Longer is better. Heavier is better, and in the end you want all the weight. This will ensure your sight pin sits still.
Stabilizers come in many sizes and configurations, but they all serve the same purpose. They reduce vibration when the shooter fires an arrow and stabilize the bow by increasing its inertia. Without stabilizers, bows can feel unstable while archers aim, potentially making it difficult to keep their bow stationary.
Front stabilizers are designed to give your bow resistance to movement (a firmer grip) while fully drawn. The longer the stabilizer bar is in front, the more you will see the effects of this resistance to some extent.
You won’t find brand new bows online from brands like Hoyt or Mathews, and other brands – including PSE and Bear – also only sell their top-end flagships through retailers. p >
