Mathews Triax

Is the Mathews Triax the Best Bow for the 2018 Bowhunting Season?

How good is the Matthews Triax really?

Every year at the ATA show, companies release their next best bow for that year. Hundreds of bows and archery accessories line the booths for dealers and media personnel to get a glimpse for what's new that year. Of course, all of the big-name companies arrive and everybody anticipates how each company could possibly make a better more sophisticated piece of archery equipment than the year before. Yet, it seems like a lot of companies attempt every year, but only a few do it well. In that list is the Mathews Triax.

The Triax followed the Mathews Halon 32, which hunters drooled all over, especially at the sight of its ingenuity.

The Mathews Triax, most notably, boasts its award-winning Crosscentric Cam system and all-new 3D Damping technology, making it one of the most silent bows on the market. The bow is designed on a 28-inch ATA platform with a 6-inch brace height. The bow also has an IBO rating up to 343 feet per second, making it one of the fastest bows in the industry.

So is the Mathews Triax, the newest line of Mathews bows, the best compound bow for the 2018 bowhunting season?

Product Description

The Triax comes with several finish options including Optifade Elevated II, Optifade Subalpine, Ridge Reaper Barren, Ridge Reaper Forest, Lost Camo XD and many more. The designs will fit any avid bowhunter's desire.

The draw length is 24.5-30.5 inches with draw weights of 50, 60 and 70 pounds. The bow maintains an incredibly smooth draw, and the let-off for the new Triax is 75-85 percent. Similarly, the weight of the bow itself is a mere 4.4 pounds.


If you're looking to purchase a new bow before hunting season, the Mathews Triax might be the one for you. Don't get me wrong, there are a lot of great brands out there that make great bows, Prime and Hoyt to name a few. However, the Mathews Triax is tested and proven to get the job done.
