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.
