Mathews bows have always been known for their shootability and the quietest dead in hand feel. The new VXR is honestly better than their best, taking technologies from their target line, but at the same time maintaining the maneuverability of a compact hunting setup. For more information, be sure to check out more information on the Mathews VXR here. goHUNT's Trail Kreitzer was able to put the new VXR on a full test drive before they were released last fall. Check out his review here.

Key features on the VXR

Extended Bridged Riser

Mathews VXR extended bridge riser

Mathews took a strategic approach to the VXR riser design that created a bow platform that cut weight while maximizing axle to axle length and rigidity in critical areas.

Switchweight Technology

Mathews Switchweight technology

With Switchweight Technology, there's no more messing with your limbs to adjust the bow's draw weight. You can now adjust your peak weight with the quick change of a module in 5-pound increments with a simple change of a mod. Available in 60, 65, 70 and 75 lb peak weights. Switchweight mods are programmed for an incredibly smooth draw and maximum efficiency.

Repositioned 3D Damping

Mathews VXR repositioned damper

The VXR features a repositioned damper that is tuned to the specific harmonics of each model to reduce post-shot vibration and noise. In addition to that, the extended position provides added balance at full draw. Our bow expert Trail Kreitzer described the VXR as "scary quiet."

New enhanced stabilizer bushing

The VXR features an enlarged stabilizer bushing which increases the stiffness of any attached stabilizer by up to 10%. This leads to enhanced accuracy and vibration damping.

Silent connect system compatible

This new Silent Connect System feature on the VXR allows you to attach their exclusive Mathews bow rope and sling in the field. This is a quick and extremely silent way to carry your bow or haul it up a tree.

Ultrarest Integrate MX Rest Compatible

Mathews Ultrarest integrate mx arrow rest

This integrated Ultrarest MX Rest feature was released in 2019 and continued on the VXR line. This design sports a dovetail mounting system for quick and easy setup while providing a secure hold. The compact micro-adjust rest was designed specifically for Mathews bows with a streamlined housing allows for precision tuning with .0019 thousandths of an inch adjustment per click, both horizontally and vertically.
