Texas Active Sportsman's pick for 2020
Both bows Mathews features a 6-inch brace height and nearly identical speeds. The VXR 28 clocks in at 344 fps, while the 31.5 launches arrows at 343 fps. As expected, the 28-inch model weighs slightly less at 4.4 lbs and the 31.5-inch model tips the scales at 4.6 lbs. Both bows are available in 60, 65, 70 & 75 lb draw weights.
The extended, six-bridge riser on the 2020 VXR was designed to cut weight, while adding strength and stability. It holds like a target bow, while maintaining the maneuverability of a compact hunting rig. This new platform increased cam efficiencies and enhanced the effects of 3D damping to create the most stable, stealthy platform we’ve ever built.
