Mathews Flatline Stabilizer Review

Considering Mathews has carved out its place at the top of the food chain for creating the quietest and most vibration free bows ever built, it only made sense that they’d apply some of that same creative genius to other elements of the bow as well. And that’s when the Mathews Flatline stabilizer came to life. Take a closer look at the latest archery accessory from the Mathews crew in our Mathews Flatline Stabilizer review below…


Mathews has taken their noise and vibration reduction technology to the stabilizer market.

First Impressions

The Flatline stabilizer lineup delivers a sleek and simple design, free from useless add-ons and features that often come with other stabilizers. It’s simple, yet it’s sophisticated in its dampening design to stabilize things out front. The test stabilizer I received came in a black finish that boasts a clean and sharp appearance that perfectly matches my Vertix.


The Flatline and the Vertix – the perfect combination of stealth.

Custom Options

As mentioned above, the Flatline allows you to control the amount of weight you desire for your stabilizer. With a simple turn of an Allen screw, you can remove the end cap and add or remove weight to give you the exact weight, balance and feel you want for your bow setup. You can also customize the color options by swapping out the EHS rubber to match color accents on your rig.

Custom options are available quick and easy.

Less is More

Take a look at the stabilizer selection on the shelf at your nearest archery shop and you’ll see that they come in all shapes and sizes. Unfortunately all the flashy features in many of them are nothing more than fluff to catch your eye. I’ve found that some of the best stabilizers on the market are the simplest in design. The Flatline falls in with that engineering concept. It’s simple yet effective. In fact, after a few minutes on the range with the Flatline, I was honestly finding the 6″ stabilizer to balance and perform like what I’ve experience in bigger/longer stabilizers I’ve shot in the past.

The Flatline provides better stabilization in a smaller package.
