Mathews Halon Specs

I liked the bow's higher axle-to-axle rating. Last year's 30-inch Halon seemed longer than it was because of the lowered string angle provided by the Crosscentric Cam Systemast. The 2017 model's axle-to-axle measurement of 32 inches felt more like a 34-inch bow. Any day of the week, I'll choose the longer axle-to-axle feel of a 34-inch bow over the mobility of a 32-inch bow. The Halon 32 is quiet and lifeless at the time of the shooting. My natural bow grip is fairly open, and I don't shoot with a wrist strap. The Halon 32 didn't bounce forward in my hand, and I didn't notice any undesirable oscillation apart from a sliver of vibration.

The Halon 6 Bow's Kinetic Energy

The one thing you will notice about the Halon 6 is that with the amount of kinetic energy this bow produces, there is a strong probability your Carbon arrow will not survive the earth. I've been firing Carbon Express Maxima Red 350's, and the speed I'm getting out of this bow with these arrows is between 310 and 320 feet per second.

With a draw weight of 50-70 pounds and their revolutionary crossover cam, youll be able to deliver a death shot at 330-fps (IBO Rating)! While the draw weight is a tad heavy, it delivers a crushing punch that many other comparable bows cannot match. If you're looking for a new crossover bow, you owe it to yourself to investigate the Mathews Halon Crossover Bow. It is designed to perform everywhere (field or range) while offering some of the quickest arrow delivery rates (up to 330-fps) of any bow on the market. And, since it's a Mathews Archery bow, you know it'll perform precisely what you want, every time. Mathews stands behind their goods, and the Mathews Halon crossover bow will be no exception, whether in the field or at the range.

PurpleDriver said, "I still enjoy shooting with my Switchback XT, but I just purchased a VXR and it is great." The only thing it lacks in comparison to the SXT is the draw cycle, but the performance is incredible. Click to enlarge... I have a Mathews Chill-R and a gift card for a new bow. I fired both the VXR and the V3 31, and the VXR seemed more natural to me. I'll admit that my breakover point appeared more forceful than my Chill, which surprised me. It was certainly a "snap" more than I was accustomed to. Even after seeing some of the review videos for both the VXR and V3, I'm struck by how crisp it is. Perhaps I'm more like 67-68# on my Chill than the 70 I shot? Would 2 pounds really make a difference? Is there anything that can be done about this? I've been reading some remarks on how folks are adapting to this draw cycle. I simply haven't been persuaded to "upgrade" yet.

Mathews Halon 6 Specs

I use the Halon 6, and my son just acquired the VXR. We took turns photographing both of them last week. The VXR is an excellent shooting bow that is smooth, quiet, and quick (but most new bows today are fast). I'm not acquainted with the V3, but if I were Mathews, I'd look closely at the VXR. I enjoy the 6, but it is heavier and longer than my earlier Drenalin, and at 60, carrying the bow and my climber may be difficult.

Will Brantley wrote this. 9:56 a.m. on July 26, 2021 Since 2013, AMI has been evaluating the top compound bows head-to-head for Field & Stream. At the time, no other hunting bow brand elicited a stronger response from readers than Mathews. On the one hand, there are Mathews Archery shooters who are devoted to the company. Simply put, if Mathews does not win, those bowhunters will feel we did something wrong. Then there are the archers who don't use a Mathews compound bow. When Mathews wins, these people presume it's because we received a bribe.

One of the attendees at this conference inquired about Matt's thoughts on the future of bow design. Matt then tore a piece of paper in two to show the significant change in bow design decades ago. Of course, when he ripped the next piece in half, the remaining amount became smaller and smaller. His thesis was that as bow engineers learned from one another and contemporary machining processes got more precise, real innovation became more difficult to achieve. Even as an inexperienced bowhunter, I couldn't agree more. Nowadays, this year's bow is just marginally better than last year's bow, although 20 years ago, there were often significant advancements from one year to the next.

Wisconsin's Sparta The 2016 HALON, built on Crosscentric Cam technology, offers hard-hitting energy with the reliable accuracy you've come to expect from Mathews. The HALONs all-new CrossCentric Cam, inspired by No Cam technology, uses a partly concentric string payout to generate a covert draw and achieves velocities of up to 353 feet per second. This high-speed system employs AVS technology to maintain cam synchronization, conserve more energy, and boost efficiency throughout the draw cycle. The HALON is 30 axle to axle and has a true-center nocking point for straight and level nock movement, which improves shot-to-shot consistency.
