The anticipated arrival of the new Mathews bow line was announced Tuesday morning, with the Halon 32 serving as the flagship for the 2017 introductions.
Mathews fans filled chat rooms on social media and hunting sites discussing the possibilities for the new bows. When the news broke, three new models were announced with a wide range of options, along with new color options for some other models.
Here is the info from Mathews about the three introductions:
1. HALON 32
The new HALON 32 is a longer version of the award-winning HALON, providing an enhanced string angle and superior stability, while delivering speeds up to 350 fps. Like its predecessor, the HALON 32 is powered by the highly efficient CROSSCENTRIC cam, which employs a partially concentric string payout and AVS® technology to produce a stealthy draw and consistent accuracy.
Its true-center nocking point ensures straight and level nock travel, enhancing shot-to-shot consistency. Outfitted with the FlatBack Grip™ and industry-leading Harmonic Damper® and Harmonic Stabilizer®, the HALON 32 is rock solid and deadly quiet.
At less than 4 pounds with a 30 inch axle-to-axle and a 6 inch brace height, the AVAIL is compact and provides women truly unmatched performance. Featuring draw lengths that range 22 to 28 inches and draw weight up to 60 pounds, the AVAIL delivers speeds up to 320 feet per second (IBO speed at 30″ draw would be 340 fps).
Its CROSSCENTRIC cam and AVS technology produce a smooth draw and consistent accuracy while delivering massive downrange energy.
The 2017 STOKE is the most advanced youth bow ever created. It’s powered by the same highly efficient CROSSCENTRIC cam and AVS technology utilized in our flagship HALON series to provide unmatched performance and consistent accuracy.
At just over 27 inches axle-to-axle with speeds up to 314 feet per second (IBO speed at 30″ draw would be 344 fps), this bow is compact, lightweight and offers young archers top-of-the-line craftsmanship.
