Is the 31.5 heavy? I saw that it was 4.66 pounds, is that particularly heavy for a compound bow?
John Kovacs
John Kovacs 4 meses atrás
The riser on the 31.5 is the same length as their flagship target bow the TRX36. To have that kind of stability in a hunting bow is something that I think we will start to see a lot of companies do in future years. Remember stability comes from the riser, not ATA length. What a awesome bow and I’m shooting mine so good that I’ve sold my traverse and I’m going to use this as my 3D bow for this year

Great review, I was curious. I have a 31 inch draw, do you think the string angle would be an issue with such a short ATA? It's a blessing and a curse on those long draws
Trail Kreitzer
Trail Kreitzer 4 meses atrás
My draw length is 30" and I feel really comfortable with the string angle on this bow. In saying that, this is the shortest bow I have ever owned that I felt that way about. At 31" I would encourage you to visit a local pro shop and shoot it. You may find it comfortable without moving your head down and into the peep but I have suspicions that it might be a smidgen too steep at that length. I would also encourage you to shoot the Traverse. Hope that helps!

It is a finger sling. It's similar to a wrist sling, just wraps around your fingers instead.

More info on your stabilizer setup. I see it's all mathews products?

Hi there, we had a chance to play with a set of the Mathews Flatline stabilizers and they are really nice. Like most stabilizers you have the ability to add weights and the dampening technology is a nice touch to quiet them down. My own personal stabilizer setup is a Beestinger Micohex 12" front bar with 3oz of weight on a 10 degree quick disconnect. I also shoot a Beestinger Microhex 10" backbar with 7 or 8 oz of weight, mounted from a Mathews adjustable v-bar mount. Hope that helps.

So, I am confused. Twenty seconds into the video you said you have shot the bow for about a month but at the 3 min. 14 sec point you state that you haven't had a chance to shoot it to see how fast it shoots? I enjoyed the rest of your review, just confused by the conflicting statement.
Scott Brewington

Trail Kreitzer

Right, thanks for the feedback. I have been shooting the bow for the month but I haven't shot it through a chrono to see what kind of speeds it was getting. I also wasn't given the full set of specs when I received the bow. I can tell you now that it IBO's at 344 FPS. Hopefully that answers the question...all the best!

How does the string angle of VXR 31.5 compare to the Traverse ?.
Rusty Shackleford
Rusty Shackleford 4 meses atrás
Traverse has a better angle
Trail Kreitzer
Trail Kreitzer 4 meses atrás
The traverse has a better angle given that it's 1.5" longer ATA but even at my 30" draw length I had no issues finding my anchor points without moving my head down into the string with the VXR 31.5. I still have nose to string, string to corner of my mouth, and my release hand anchor is still comfortable and easily repeatable.

@Trail Kreitzer a Mathews trademark a little heavier,a little quieter.I have to say,their speeds are running faster than everybody so far too.
Trail Kreitzer
Trail Kreitzer 4 meses atrás
In my opinion it sits almost dead level at full draw. At rest it is ever so slightly heavier at the top with a light lean forward. I would say the VXR is not heavy, it's on par with most other bows out there of a similar size. Personally, I find a heavier bow holds better and is quieter.

You didn't mention that Mathews offers side plates for those who want to shoot off the riser rather than use the full Engage grip. Side plates look a little nicer than athletic grip wrap or tape. Nice review, though.
Trail Kreitzer
Trail Kreitzer 4 meses atrás
They do indeed offer side plates and it's a nice option although not the same as shooting off the riser itself. The side plates on the shelf side of a right handed bow still pushes out away from the riser similar to the engage grip. That's the portion of both the side plates and the grip that I don't love, it feels to me like it pushes my hand out away and I prefer the feel of getting up into the grip. Hope that helps!
goHUNT

You are correct. Those side plates are pretty slick!
Brody Holloway

Trail, Great review. I’ve noticed in several of your videos some type of grip device you’re using. The blue thing that attaches to your thumb and middle finger and wraps around the grip. Is that for torque, or is it something else? Do you have a video discussing it, and is it available in the store? Thanks
Trail Kreitzer
Trail Kreitzer 4 meses atrás
Hi Brody, yeah that's just a finger sling. I use it Instead of a traditional wrist sling that most bowhunters are familiar with. It goes from your thumb, around the front of the riser, and then attaches to your middle finger. Same as a wrist sling, it's to ensure that you don't drop your bow when executing proper follow through. Essentially you want to deaden that bow hand, let the bow sit without any tension in your grip, and then allow the bow to jump forward and do it's thing on the shot. Let it follow through and the finger sling just helps so you don't drop your bow. I don't like the feel of a wrist sling and I also like that the finger sling keeps me connected to my bow even when I'm hiking and carrying my bow. We sell them in our gear shop, link below. shop.gohunt.com/collections/archery/products/aae-super-sling-finger-sling

In my opinion it sits almost dead level at full draw. At rest it is ever so slightly heavier at the top with a light lean forward. I did end up with a 10 degree front disconnect and a 12" bar with 3 ounces of weight and then a 10" backbar with 7 ounces of weight and a bit more down turn on that back bar to balance it out.

My Vertix is very top heavy and wants to lean to the right at full draw, so I'm constantly fighting to keep it level, even with a backbar. Have they fixed the top-heaviness with the VXR?

@jake harper ya defently I would mark it I already mark my cams limb bolts arrows etc and defently would do it on that I hear good things about it just never tried one but marking things is a must for me it helps you a lot in the long run and a lot less headaches lol
jake harper
jake harper 4 meses atrás
Al Bundy I have not, but that would do the trick. One thing to consider with that system. If you remove it (i.e. to put the bow in a case) you undo your fine tuning. I would suggest you make a mark on the bracket so you can put it back on in the exact same spot. The reason why I got the rear mount that I use (Mathews adjustable v bar) is that it comes with a built in quick disconnect for the rear stabilizer. Once set up, I can remove the stabilizer without undoing my balance settings. That said, the one you mentioned would work just fine. I had a different setup on my halon 32 and it worked ok (that was my first attempt with a rear stabilizer setup). My current setup on my Traverse works great
Al Bundy
Al Bundy 4 meses atrás
@jake harper defently true I never ran a rear stabilizer before on any of my bows and the vertix balances pretty well without any stabs on it for me anyway but I like to try new things out I got 3 beestingers already just need to get that bracket have you tried the counter slide stabilizer thought about buying one of those
jake harper
jake harper 4 meses atrás
Al Bundy I used a 10” Mathews flatline in the front with a bee stinger quick disconnect (makes it about 1.5” longer) and the 6” flatline in the back, using Mathews new adjustable rear mount (you can swing it in/out and up/down, which helps you balance the bow exactly). Make sure you do a second and third axis leveling to get your sight bubble exactly level first, then use the stabilizer to balance the bow left to right while at full draw. The end goal is to get the bow to balance level (using the sight bubble level) at full draw with a relaxed hand on the bow grip. Balancing the bow will remove any hand torque on the grip and improve shot accuracy.

Thanks for the review Trail. How does it compare to the older Triax? My local shop won't be able to get one in for awhile yet. Just curious if I should go ahead and get new strings on my current bow or it is worth getting a new bow. Thanks 👍👍
goHUNT
goHUNT 4 meses atrás
​@Aaron Wilder You are very welcome! If you have any other questions. I'd be more than happy to help you out. One thought would be great to take your Triax and bring it with you when you go to a shop. That way you can do a side by side test. Both are great bows and each year it's amazing how a few new features, can make a bow even better. We live in a great age for bow technology! Trail Kreitzer goHUNT Research Manager & Gear Expert

Thank you again Trail. I do have a 30 inch draw length which is shorter than I was with my previous bow, the shorter draw length made it easier with the Triax for me to be more consistent shot to shot. I will definitely try out the VXR 31.5 when I can, again I appreciate you taking the time to answer my question and make this video. 👍👍
goHUNT
goHUNT 4 meses atrás
Hey Aaron. The ATA and more importantly the riser length on the VXR is noticeably longer than the Triax. Which, for me at a 30” draw length equates to a much more stable and accurate bow. The string angle on the Triax was too steep for me to comfortably find my anchor consistently. At your draw length, it may or may not be an issue, but for me it was. The VXR 31.5 that I have allows me to find a consistent anchor point without any movement of my head. The VXR holds steadier than the Triax due to it’s longer stiffer riser. It holds as well as several longer ATA bows I’ve owned. The VXR is also really really quiet. It’s the quietest bow I’ve ever shot and that’s not smoke and mirrors. I genuinely believe that. Draw is going to be very similar to the Triax. Speed is going to be similar. Overall, I’d suggest you shoot the VXR and see for yourself. For me, the VXR 31.5 is going to be more accurate, it’s quieter, and shock free than the Triax but should shoot it and see what you think! Glad you enjoyed the review!

Trail was using the Mathews Flatline stabilizers during this video. He recently got back from hunting in Wisconsin for whitetails with the VXR, and for that hunt he was using a 12” Bee Stinger MicroHex stabilizer with 3 oz of weight on a 10-degree quick disconnect and a 10” Bee Stinger MicroHex back bar with 7 oz of weight on the Mathews Adjustable V-Bar bracket. Both stabilizers are great on this bow!
