Mathews releases the all new 2015 Mathews NO Cam.
Mathews Inc has done it again. The bow building giant has gone from two cams to single cams and now they are moving to NO CAMS.
I am not an bow designer but it looks like Mathews is moving to a binary cam. Basically you have two mirror image cams. The cams are directly linked together in a slave arrangement. This forces the cams to remain in perfect sync with each other. It is believed the configuration will provide for a more accurate and forgiving setup.

Mathews No Cam Press Release
Driven by NO CAM ST™ Technology, the all-new NO CAM™ HTR is a truly integrated system featuring shorter, more rigid quad limbs, a less-reflexed riser, twin Harmonic Stabilizers™ and our patented Focus Grip™. Reaching speeds up to 330 feet per second, the NO CAM™ HTR measures 32” axle-to-axle with a 6 5/8” brace height. RockMods™ come standard on the NO CAM™ HTR and are available in 65%, 75% and 85% let-off. The innovative new bow comes in five exclusive finishes, including the new Stone Tactical and Lost Camo® OT.
NO CAM ST™ Technology created such a balanced and accurate system that it also drove the design of a new target bow, the NO CAM™ TRG. In addition to the new NO CAM ST™ Technology, the NO CAM™ TRG features a less-reflexed riser with new cut-outs for added strength and stability. Twin Harmonic Stabilizers™ are also tuned to the system’s 38” axle-to-axle frame. It’s available in 7, 8 or 9 inch brace heights and four exclusive finishes, including the new Black Anthem. RockMods™ also provide a solid back wall and further customization; offering either 65% or 75% let-off. With all these options, setting up a bow to fit even the most discriminating shooter’s needs has never been easier.
The First Review
I was able to dig up one lucky archer that shot the Mathews No Cam and decided to post his review.
He loved the look and feel of the bow. He was shooting the Mathews No Cam HTR and recognized the uniqueness of the new design. The shot was quiet and almost zero vibration. The one complaint was the draw cycle. He felt like it dumped into the backwall.
What do you think?
It is still only hours old so no one has gotten to hold the No Cam bow. We are looking for reviews, information or any gossip about this new bow from Mathews so please leave a comment below.
I like the idea that a bow manufacturer set out to make the most accurate bow instead of the fastest bow., especially for hunting.
I shot one the first day the dealer had one, SICK, absolutely unbelievable, I said that I wouldn’t buy one because of the looks, then I shot it, ordered one on the spot.
Was at a well know and reputable Mathews dealer and saw this bow. look and feel is incredible however I was told by one of the employees who bought one the first day that at 70lbs 75lbs let off they were only getting 240fps and that the draw was exactly the same as the creed xs
Like a lot of people out there, I thought they were out of their minds; I’m not an engineer but it just didn’t make sense how there could be any let off. Then I shot one. Hands down the smoothest drawing, smoothest shooting bow I’ve ever shot. The demo model I shot was completely stock; no stabilizer, nothing to suck up the recoil. There was literally no vibration and no sound. You have to shoot it to believe it.
Was handed the bow by a enthusiastic dealer at a retail shop. Made five shots with the no cam my first expression got a humored response from the dealer. I turned right away and said what a smooth shot and the noise is minimal, very quite. Then I walked to return the arrows stuck in a 2 in group from a bow 2 inches short of my draw. Very smooth quite shooting bow.
I shot one arrow from the No Cam hung it on the hook and the dealer said whats wrong? I said I am done I want MINE!
When I was fitted out with my bow tried different bows they were either hard to pull back and I was not comfortable with them. Mike the guy I bought the bow from ARCHERY ESSENTIALS IN PERTH
he had one nocam left and I tried it would recommend it to anyone I chose it as its good for left @ right handed as I am lefthanded anyway keep up the good work from Craig
