    Default New Mathews Bows

    Ok so here are the details:


    If your looking for a bow that does it all, check out the all-new Mathews S2. You get silky smooth shooting and significant speed (318 fps). That's speed without the kick!

    Mathews, the #1 bow company in the world, introduces the new-for-2008 DXT, its latest SlimLimb bow. The DXT gives you the perfect balance of excessive power and exceptional accuracy. What is different about the new DXT?

    It's shorter - At just 29 3/4' axle-to-axle, the DXT is terrific in tight quarters.
    It's lighter - At just 3.75lbs, the DXT will be a welcome companion on the trek up the mountain or across the cornfield.
    It's faster - At 322 fps, the DXT gives you the perfect balance of excessive power and exceptional accuracy.

    'Thin is in' and the DXT's SlimLimbs give the bow a streamlined appearance and result in less, unnecessary weight. SlimLimbs are also tough. The DXT's SlimLimbs are constructed of next generation SE4 composite and last typically twice as long as traditional, lifetime-guaranteed limbs.

    The DXT will feature Mathews' new Lost Camo. The exclusive new camouflage pattern designed specifically with bowhunters in mind.

    MSRP $859.00

    DXT features include a long list of Mathews' relentless innovations such as a perimeter-weighted cam, parallel limb design, Harmonic Dampers, String Suppressors, a roller guard and the SphereLock Pivoting Limb Cup system.

    Take the first step to realizing your bowhunting dreams by visiting you local Mathews retailer to shoot the New DXT!

    Thinner - The SE3 Composite Limbs on the Drenalin LD measure just 1 1/8' wide.

    Longer ATA and smaller grip..................is this not what hunters have been asking for???

    Shorter ATA for those who like shorter bows.

    New Camo pattern.

    Now the question is..............are they coming out with a target bow this year???

    The S2 seems a bit weak, it's exactly the same bow as the switchback except 1/2 # lighter. The DXT was a let down for me at first, I don't think it is a bad bow, and once you start looking at it they did come out w/ a skimmer grip which is nice. Lets face it, the bow could have been anywhere from 26 ata - 38 ata and as long as it said, 335-340fps, everyone would be thrilled, me included. But eh, Thats really the only thing Mathews didn't give this yr. longer ata bow, slimmer grip thats what alot of guys wanted. I will be holding out for next yr. though. Nothing tripped my trigger this yr. from any manufacture, except maybe the Elite Fire and I've already got the Prestige so theres really nothing there for me either. Same old same old from everyone.

    so for a mere 900 bucks you to can have a bow that will beat last years bow by a whopping 2 fps

    Why is everyone so tied up on SPEED? What does 15fps really gain you?
