Mathew’s hunting bow is our most efficient hunting system to date. This year we challenged ourselves to innovate at the leading edge of what physics will allow in a hunting bow. By damping vibration directly in the limbs, we are able to drastically reduce downstream wasted energy felt in the hand during and after the shot. Combined with our new Bridge-Lock™ Stabilizers that offer improved balance points, increased harmonic tunability, and a more robust connection to your bow, Mathew’s hunting bow is the most advanced and adaptable hunting system we’ve ever designed.
Mathews developed four brand-new design features for its 2021 V3, melding them with existing technologies to produce the company’s most advanced hunting bow yet. Available in an ultra-agile, 27-inch axle-to-axle version, as well as an ultra-stable, 31-inch axle-to-axle version, the V3 is built using an all-new Extended Bridge Riser that provides excellent rigidity while maximizing length, resulting in an even longer riser to axle-to-ratio than last year’s award-winning VXR. The result, Mathews says, is a bow platform that is extremely compact yet incredibly stable. Also new on the V3 is the Centerguard Cable-Containment system that places the cables in the true center of the bow, resulting in optimal cam timing to maximize tunability while also increasing vane clearance. All-new limbs featuring past-parallel geometry, paired with a redesigned limb cup, boost system performance and efficiency. Finally, the V3 offers Mathews’ new Nano 740 damper, calibrated to the specific harmonics of the bow for greatly reduced shot noise and vibration. Both V3 models have a 6-inch brace height, are powered by a Crosscentric Cam system with SwitchWeight Technology, offer adjustable letoff of 80 or 85 percent, are compatible with the optional Mathews Silent Connect System bow rope and bow sling accessories and are available in peak draw weights of 60, 65, 70 and 75 pounds. The V3 27 weighs 4.29 pounds. accommodates draw lengths from 25-29.5 inches and has an IBO speed rating of 336 fps (at a 29.5-inch draw). The V3 31 weighs 4.5 pounds, accommodates draw lengths from 26-30.5 inches and has an IBO speed rating of 342 fps. Mathews is also offering two new bow finish options — First Lite Specter and Under Armour All-Season — on top of its six existing camo and solid color choices.
