First Look: Mathews Creed, Chill and ZXT Bows

First Look: Mathews Creed, Chill and ZXT Bows

Sometimes the best way to advance your technology is to simplify it—a motto Mathews adapted for their 2013 line of bows.

The centerpiece of the new collection is the Mathews Creed, which features a new SimPlex Cam and is—according to Mathews—their smoothest drawing bow yet. Rated at 328 fps, it isn't their fastest bow on record, but it is the best at capturing a unique blend of speed, quietness and accuracy.

Another important feature on the Creed is the parallel limb design and Geo Grid Lock riser, which are staples of the Mathews line and help make the bow one of the lightest and smoothest on the market. The Creed also includes harmonic dampeners just like previous models.

The other model is the Monster Chill, an addition to the Mathews McPherson Series. It features a new DYAD AVS cam system, which produce 333 fps and help minimize vibration. The Chill is Mathews' fastest and smoothest two cam bow.


Finally, Mathews announced the ZXT, which features the ever-popular ZX Single Cam and is their more affordable option while still getting all the expected Mathews technology. While the Creed and Chill retail at $999, the ZXT comes in at $799.
