Mathews Introduces 2018 Target Bow, The TRX 38

Sparta, Wisconsin – From the World Cup to ASA Shooter of the Year and IBO Triple Crown, the 2017 Mathews Target bows have proven to be the champions’ choice. After an extremely successful year with the 2017 TRX 7 and TRX 8, we are excited to introduce the new TRX 38.

Built off of the proven design of the longer TRX models, the 38 inch axle-to-axle TRX38 fills the void perfectly for shooters looking for a shorter, lighter, more comfortable bow for their draw length. Draw lengths range 23 inches to 30 inches and draw weight goes from 50 pounds up to 70 pounds on the new TRX 38. The new 70 percent mod gives shooters a deeper valley while the standard 80 percent mods remain an option.

“Mathews really listens to their pro shooters,” stated Pro Shooter, Dan McCarthy. “The TRX Series is already a powerhouse, but some of us prefer a slightly shorter platform, and they delivered a winner.”

The TRX Series features a perimeter-weighted Mini-Crosscentric Cam and our highly efficient AVS technology to produce speeds up to 328 feet per second. A true-center nocking point ensures straight and level nock travel, further enhancing shot-to-shot consistency and a 7.5-inch brace height provides unmatched forgiveness.

“It’s hard to design a bow that will fit the needs of all archers, but this one could do it,” stated Mathews Pro Braden Gellenthien. “The new 38 inch TRX will be great for both indoor and outdoor competitions.”

    Gee! I wonder which candy color that the deer would see the least! Does a different bright color make the bow work better? Perhaps the candy colors would suit the anti-hunters better, since it would announce “hey, I’m here!”.

    • Uhhh…these are target bows. They’re made for competition archery, not for hunting. Hence the “Target Bow” part of the title in the article.

        Then that would imply that a hunting bow is not good enough for target practice. After all, they all produce the same results. That is unless the target bows cannot mount the hardware that the hunting bows can.

        • Sure you can hunt with a target bow just like you can target shoot with a hunting bow. They both shoot arrows. However they’re designed to perform under very different sets of circumstances. Target bows are made specifically for competitive target shooting. They tend to be longer, heavier and slower than their hunting counterparts. They also come in bright, flashy colors that look cool on the range but aren’t quite suited for hunting. So implying there is something wrong with the color of a bow that wasn’t made for hunting when used in a hunting situation seems a bit backwards to me.

      Never saw someone get so worked up about bow colors! Buy the black one if you are worried the deer wont die from your blue bow. They cant see color anyways.

    Will you have a “Left-Handed” 40lb TRX38 At 263/4 inch-draw bow available at the next “Vegas”shoot” booth in 2018? I’d like to check it out!… Thank you!

    I wonder what the person who made the comment on “What color” is?! He must be a “Hollywood” movie archer / hunter”? The different colors of the bow (if used) are like the different colors of the trees & leaves of the forest. Doesn’t that person know and realize that it takes knowledge & skill to effectively “harvest” a game animal? If an archer can only afford to by only 1 bow that’s their prerogative … I’m sure that they would try to “camouflage” himself as well as his equipment if he does his “homework”. I don’t think that he would go hunting dressed in a (ahem!) … “Tuxedo”?!T

  5. the white one would be sweet in the snow

  6. & if they made a pink one that’d work in the desert
