Introducing the New Mathews NO CAM HTR & NO CAM TRG

The new Mathews NO CAM HTR (left), and NO CAM TRG (right).

To most bowhunters, the beginning of November means rutting deer. To fans of Mathews bows, the first part of November also means the release of new bow models. That is exactly what happened while I was busy chasing rutting Sitka blacktails on Kodiak Island, Alaska.

It's safe to say the release of the new 2015 Mathews bows made a significant splash, mostly because of innovative new technology called NO CAM ST Technology. Two new bows, the NO CAM HTR and NO CAM TRG, feature this latest innovation from Mathews, a cam system with two string tracks that are circular and concentric. This design not only ensures straight and level nock travel, which is always critical for optimum accuracy, but it creates the smoothest draw cycle imaginable. And every bowhunter knows how important that is when it comes to drawing your bow in the presence of game.

mathews_nocam_htr_1Because the NO CAM TRG is the target version of this technology, we'll focus on the NO CAM HTR. The HTR is a 32-inch axle-to-axle bow with short, rigid quad limbs, a slightly reflexed riser and a 6 5/8-inch brace height.

This bow, easily held steady with the Focus Grip, is capable of 330 feet per second, and shot energy is tamed by twin Harmonic Stabilizers. Mathews' new Rock Mods technology comes standard on the HTR and you can opt for 65, 75 or 85 percent letoff. You can also choose from five finishes, including two new options for 2015 — Lost Camo OT and Stone Tactical.

Now, I have a new HTR waiting for me that I can't wait to put through a workout, but I have to head straight to Kansas to hunt whitetails, so keep an eye on for my upcoming review of the HTR.

Also, Mathews has two other new bows for 2015. The Chill X Pro is a "targetized" version of the Chill X, which I just used to tag a Sitka blacktail, and the new Z2, a Solocam bow that is a next generation version of their extremely popular Z7 series of bows.
