Mathews Vertix

The Vertix compound bow is new to the market for the 2019 season and sits as the new flagship bow in the Mathews range. It hits the scene as a smooth shooting hunting bow that is reminiscent of the smaller Triax but offers a touch more stability through the 30 inch axle to axle length.

Mathews TX-5

The TX-5 is another new introduction to the Mathews range for the 2019 season. It is a compact hunting bow that is highly manoeuvrable, accurate and very fast. This is the bow in the range that has been nominated by the company as their speed bow.
