Exclusive First Look: Mathews Monster Chill R

by Curt Wells   |  November 4th, 2013 1

As one of the leading bow manufacturers in the world, it’s always big news when Mathews announces its newest bows for the next year. This year it’s no different, as Mathews welcomes two new items, the Monster Chill R and the Creed XS.

Bowhunter editor Curt Wells got his hands on the Monster Chill R for an exclusive first look at this hot new offering from Mathews. He recently took a break from deer hunting to bring you his field report on the Chill R.


Editor’s Report From the Field
Few things can pull me away from my treestand when the whitetail rut is on, but a chance to shoot a new bow is one of them. Last week, my new 2014 Mathews Monster Chill R showed up at the door, so I took a break from hunting to set it up and do some shooting.

Longer Axle-to-Axle Length
As I slipped my new Monster Chill R out of the box, the first thing I noticed was the longer axle-to-axle length, which is a welcome change from my 2013 Monster Chill. The only thing I would have changed in that bow was the 30.5-inch axle-to-axle length. Since I shoot a 30-inch draw, I feared the bow might be a bit too short for my draw length. That concern turned out to be unfounded, however, as last year’s Monster Chill shot very well for me and was responsible for a muskox and a caribou in August.
