Mathews Triax First Look

New for 2018 is the Mathews Triax – a compact hunting bow built to be ultra quiet and vibration-free.  The Triax sits on a 28″ axle-to-axle platform which makes it extremely maneuverable and nimble.  Whether you’re hunting from a ground blind, treestand or stalking the Triax feels right at home.

Powered by the Crosscentric AVS cam system, the Triax produces speeds of up to 343 fps while maintaining the same silky-smooth draw that shooters have come to love.  The Triax features a 6″ brace height and weighs in at 4.4 lbs.

The most notable change from previous Mathews offerings is the new Enhanced Harmonic Stabilizer.  Unlike Mathews bows of the past, which have featured a pair of either Harmonic Dampers or Harmonic Stabilizers in the top and bottom of the riser, the Triax features a single Harmonic Stabilizer that is set in front of the main portion of the bow’s riser.  Positioned low on the bow, the new Enhanced Harmonic Stabilizer not only helps eliminate noise and vibration but also provides a more balanced bow.

    Justin Zarr,

    Do you really think it’s worth trading in the Halon 32 for the Triax? I always thought the 32 was just a little too heavy. It appears that they shoot at similar speeds.


    • Hey Michael – it really comes down to personal preference. I LOVE my Halon 32 and didn’t think I’d want to give it up. Definitely one of the best shooting bows I’ve ever owned. After a few weeks with the Triax I can say I really enjoy it’s compact size and maneuverability. Going back and forth from the 32 to the Triax is kind of like driving a pickup truck and then getting in a sports car. It’s just a different feeling. And it’s every bit as accurate, and definitely has less vibration. I think it’s a win-win either way you go, but if I had to pick a single bow for all of my bowhunting duties at this point the Triax would get the nod. The 32 is just a touch too big for my liking when I’m in a ground blind, which I seem to be doing more of these days. Just my 2 cents though! Go shoot both if you can and see what you think.
