ATA Show 2016: The All-New Mathews Halon 6

ATA Show 2016: The All-New Mathews Halon 6

Mathews proudly featured the all-new Halon 6 at the 2016 ATA Show. Boasting an IBO speed rating of up to 353 fps thanks to Mathews' new CrossCentric Cam technology, the Halon delivers both energy and accuracy.

Inspired by 2015's breakthrough NoCam technology, the all-new CrossCentric Cam employs a partially concentric string payout while the revolutionary AVS technology maintains cam synchronization throughout the draw cycle.

The all-new Halon delivers the bone-crushing energy and hair-splitting accuracy bowhunters expect from Mathews


The result is enhanced efficiency and increased energy storage that makes it Mathews' hardest-hitting flagship bow to date while still maintaining a stealthy draw cycle and excellent accuracy.


Other Halon highlights include wider, more torsionally rigid limbs, an all-new bridged riser, true-center nock point that is straight and level throughout the shot cycle and new FlatBack Grip for precise and consistent hand placement.


The Mathews Halon measures 30 inches and is available in 5-, 6- or 7-inch brace heights.

The Halon is also outfitted with a Mathews Harmonic Damper and Harmonic Stabilizer to keep shot noise and vibration to a minimum. The Halon measures 30 inches between the axles and is available with your choice of 65, 75 or 85 percent letoff and 5-, 6- or 7-inch brace heights. Five finish options are highlighted by the new Lost XD camouflage. MSRP on the 2016 Halon 6 is $1,099.

Bowhunter Editor, Curt Wells, demonstrates the benefits and features of the Mathews Halon at the 2016 ATA Show.


Bowhunter editor, Curt Wells, also put the Halon 6 to the test on a beautiful Beceite ibex. Check out how the Halon 6 performed in the mountains of Spain.
