Bowhunting Bows

This year Mathews offers just one new hunting bow, and it is the first from Mathews to take advantage of all the innovation the company has produced in the last 10 years.

Mathews Switchback

Switchback: Mathews representatives told me that the company's owner and single-cam mastermind, Matt McPherson, calls the Switch-back his best bow to date. Here's why. The bow has a 7-inch brace height that combines speed and punch with forgiveness. It also has parallel limbs to cancel the shock and recoil that come from accelerating and decelerating the limbs. Mathews pioneered that concept six years ago. The bow's new Straightline Cobra Cam is super smooth and produces level nock travel. The cam and idler are the same size, so you can set tiller measurements identically.

Taking the time to consider factors such as a bow's draw weight, draw length, overall weight and cam design can pay dividends in the field.

When choosing a hunting bow, you'll want to identify the primary use, draw length, draw weight, total mass, arrow speed, bow length, color and other specifications pertinent to your situation. All of these pieces to the puzzle determine the most critical factor of all.

Can you shoot the bow accurately? It is possible for one bow to fit all of the criteria you consider, but more often than not, concessions must be made in the selection process....
