Mathews Inc. is ready to, yet again, turn the archery world on its ear with six new models for 2015.
Mathews has been a leader in the archery industry for many years, and with its new No Cam ST technology, the company is set to reinvent much of its product line.
No Cam HTR
The new-for-2015 No Cam HTR will stand as the dedicated hunting bow built around the No Cam technology. The No Cam HTR will feature a riser that, while definitely retaining the traditional Mathews look, is all new and less reflexed than previous models.
Available in draw weights of 50, 60 and 70 pounds, the No Cam HTR has a brace height of 6 5/8 inches and an axle-to-axle length of 32 inches, meaning it should have a good combination of maneuverability and forgiveness. Let-off is adjustable, and at 330 fps IBO, it’s plenty fast.
MSRP for this new flagship hunting bow is $1,099.
No Cam TRG
In addition to using the No Cam system on a hunting bow, Mathews has decided to use this technology on a dedicated target shooting bow. The No Cam TRG combines the new technology with a riser similar to the No Cam HTR. (TRG = target, HTR = hunter. Get it? Pretty clever, Mathews). With an axle-to-axle length of 38 inches, peak draw weights from 40 to 80 pounds, three different available brace heights (7, 8 and 9 inches on the TRG 7, TRG 8 and TRG 9, respectively) and fully customizable let-off, the No Cam TRG can be tailored to fit the needs of any target archer.
MSRP for any model of the No Cam TRG is $1,799.

Chill X Pro
Hot on the heels of the success of last year’s Chill X, Mathews has introduced the new-for-2015 Chill X Pro. Based on Mathews’ proven (and more traditional) dual-cam system, the Chill X Pro features a 7-inch brace height, a 35-inch axle-to-axle length and an IBO rating of up to 336 fps.
Designed to bridge the gap between a hunting and target bow, the Chill X Pro features an updated grip, along with an updated price of $1,499.
Lastly, Mathews has also introduced the new-for-2015 Z2. Similar to the popular Z7, the Z2 features the Mathews Solocam design that made the company a household name in the archery world. Updated with a new grip, as well as new camo patterns, this 30-inch axle-to-axle compact can fling arrows up to an amazing 330 fps IBO.
With an MSRP of $849, and piggybacking on the popularity of the Z7, you’ll be sure to see the Z2 on TV before long.
