Bow / HuntingVXR31.5

(9 reviews)

The extended, six-bridge riser on the 2020 VXR was designed to cut weight, while adding strength and stability. It holds like a target bow, while maintaining the maneuverability of a compact hunting rig. This new platform increased cam efficiencies and enhanced the effects of 3D damping to create the most stable, stealthy platform we’ve ever built.

    Absolutely amazing. I’ve owned the Legacy, the Switchback and then the Z7 Extreme. I bought all these bows new when they came out. The were all great bows and performed very well. Two years ago I went to a different brand. I tried the new 31.5 VXR the day they were released. I bought it the next day. It is the smoothest and quietest bow I have ever seen. The stability of the long riser has really increased my accuracy. I really believe Mathews builds the best bows on the market.

    5 out of 5 VXR convinced..!!!

    The 2020 Mathews VXR is a very nice bow. Coming from a Mathews Helium the VXR is different experience. The VXR is Quiet and balanced. At full draw the bow is very stable and seems to linger on target. After the shot feel is virtually uneventful. The draw is smooth and poundage builds early in the draw where it drops off into the valley where a firm back wall awaits. The fit and finish is superb as one would expect from Mathews. The utility of the switch weight modules is a welcome addition the compound bow world. I give this bow a full endorsement. If you think you would like the VXR, go pull the sting on one and become convinced.

    I have never owned a mathews bow in my life. I could never get used to how top heavy they felt to me. I wont mention the the other brand I used for a decade because as they still make a good product it just didn’t stand it’s ground next to the new vxr 31.5. All I can say is perfection is difficult to obtain, but Mathews archery has gained my business with a perfect bow for me. Couldn’t be more happy about making the switch. Thank you for your pursuit to be the best, paying off.

    31.5 VXR is the most stable bow that I have ever shot from Mathews’ hunting lineup. You could shoot it with no stabilizer system at all if you chose to. No kick when you release. No hand shock what so ever. Very dead in the hand. Compared to two other major companies, it is a world of difference. Others were loud and had horrible hand shock. I can’t wait for my bow to arrive. 6-8 weeks is agonizing but well worth it. I am at about 4 weeks now. Almost as exciting as waiting for my kids to be born

    Very very durable bow. EXTREMELY accurate and almost eery quiet. Definitely worth the money! The only thing I “don’t like” 😉 about Mathews is that they convice me every year to spend more money on their new bows 🙂 with their consistent improvisations. Amazing work Mathews!

    5 out of 5 I had no intention of buying it in fact I would not have picked it even as an option!

    I am an outfitter/guide of 25 years in Montana and an avid archery gear junkie. I have shot everything under the sun. I shot his bow at my local pro shop and it was between this bow and another company. I mentioned to the owner that I would buy it right now but I wanted to test it ay 70 yards with a fixed blade and a field point and see how it would do compared to the other bow. 10 minutes later we were on our way to my house which has a private archery range where I can shoot long distance. Long story short. Because of my past, I had a lot of prejudice about MATHEWS and did not want to like this bow and had no idea what the test shooting results would be. Well. it was crazy how much easier it was to hold and acquire the target as well as the mind-blowing groups I had with both field points and broadheads with this bow.
    OUT OF THE BOX!! MATHEWS this bow has made it impossible to ignore. It is a mind-blowing weapon that I CAN’T WAIT TO UNLEASH THIS FALL. WELL DONE! Just a piece of advice for anyone that is going to test this bow with broadheads and field points at long range. BRING LOTS OF ARROWS. When you shoot this bow you will be destroying lots of them because your groups will be scary tight!

    5 out of 5 best of best for 2020

    Im not a Matthews guy, and currently do not shoot one. However I like to get out from year to year and shoot the new flagships when I can. This is hands down the best I shot for 2020. I was a little nervous about the weight of the bow, but I didn’t notice it as much as I thought I would. The bow I shot was also rigged out, and even with the extra weight it was by no means over encumbering. I was very impressed to draw a 70lb pound bow that wasn’t stiff up front, it honestly felt like a 60-65lb bow. No hand shock, no hard thump upon arrow release. I shot this bow indoors, and my friends that tagged along were very impressed at how quiet the bow was compared to others we had shot that day…and that was with a 377 gr. arrow. Kudos to Matthews on continuing to be innovative with their products. I have a new found respect for Matthews to keep a leg up on the competition because in all honestly some of the other companies bows I shot, should IMO be ashamed of what they released for what they are charging for it. I am highly considering picking this bow up for 2020.
