2021 Mathews Archery Compound Bows

Mathews V3 31

The talking point about the V3 31 is the length of the riser in comparison to the axle to axle length of the bow. The point is, the riser makes up 90% of the axle to axle length, a far greater ratio when compared to other bows.

This high riser ratio is significant because although the riser is quite long, the bow itself is quite compact.

The result is an extremely stable bow that is also quite maneuverable making it ideal for hunting in close quarters.

The bow uses the Mathews large Crosscentric cams and has a Centerguard Cable Containment system that equalizes the angle of the cables during the draw cycle for optimal cam timing.

Noise and vibration are reduced using Nano 740 technology.

Draw length and weight may be changed using SwitchWeight Technology to enable changes to the draw weight in 5-pound increments via the cam’s module instead of changing limbs.

The mods are available in 80 or 85 percent let-off for further customization.

The bow has an MSRP of $1199.00.

Mathews V3 27

The V3 27 has taken the concept of the previous year’s VXR 28 compound bow and given it a slight tweak to create even greater accuracy, stability and performance.

The geometry of the bow has been perfected with a longer, lighter weight riser combined with a shorter overall axle to axle length. The balance is outstanding and this aids accuracy.

It contains the same pieces of technology mentioned above in the 31.

It all results in a deadly shooter that offers no hand shock for the type of dead in the hand feel that hunters revel in.

Both of the V3 bows are available with the following finishes: Black, Optifade Elevated 2, First Lite Specter, Green, Realtree Edge, Stone, Optifade Subalpine and UA All Season.

The bow has an MSRP of $1199.00.

Even more customization is possible with mods available in 80% or 85% let-off.

Mathews VXR 31.5

The VXR bows were first released in 2020 and they have been retained for the 2021 season, largely due to their outstanding performance, dead in the hand feel and great feel.

This is a high-performance quality hunting bow that garners careful consideration.

The 31.5 is the longer of the two bows and measures, as the name suggests, 31.5 inches from axle to axle.

It features the Extended Six Bridge Riser and is the original long hunting riser when compared to the axle to axle length. This provides greater balance and stability which translates to a higher degree of accuracy.

The Crosscentric Cam system powers the bow which includes two small discs moving in non-concentric paths to store more front-end energy and decrease let-off at the back end.

SwitchWeight modules are part of the bow set-up controlling draw length and let-off as well as providing the peak draw weight. There is still the limb bolt adjustment to be able to decrease the weight by around 10 pounds from the peak.

Noise and vibration suppression comes courtesy of the 3D Damping Technology which reduces vibration from the point of the grip.

It is available in the following finishes: Green Ambush, Optifade Elevated II, Optifade Subalpine, Realtree Edge, Stone and Black.

The bow has an MSRP of $1199.00.

The bow suits the smaller frame of the young archer with a draw length range from 21 to 27 inches and an axle-to-axle length of only 27.25 inches.

It is very light weight at well under 4 pounds but it is capable of producing speeds above 300 fps.

The Monster Safari returns for the 2021 season and is a notable bow because it makes full use of the patent pending Honeycomb Core Technology. This riser design gives the bow a great deal of strength and helps to improve performance.

This bow is part of the McPherson Series and is considered one of the standards of excellence in the range and, as such, is priced that way with an MSRP of $2,100.

It is available in limited numbers produced in a black finish.
