Mathews enters the field

Mathews will debut their new crossbow this September under the Mission line. No specs or price yet. Speculation is 340-350 fps and around $700-800. Dealer only as is how Mathews runs it ship.

Gonna shake up the market for sure.

I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!

Re: Mathews enters the field

There is a pic floating around but it doesn't show much. I am trying to find one that I can copy here.

Re: Mathews enters the field

Matthew sponsors alot of the outdoor tv shows, so I imagine we will see alot more crossbow hunting. It will be interesting to see if they come out with any new innovative designs.

Traditions only last if you pass them down to your kids!

Re: Mathews enters the field

Some pictures will be nice. Maybe they will put the monster cams on it.

Re: Mathews enters the field

The only picture that is out there shows the receiver with the Mission logo on it. No other features.

Re: Mathews enters the field

I know they have the patent on the single cam system for a crossbow. Also several other patents, including serving and string building methods. It will be interesting to watch this one to see how it all shakes out. I've been trying to get pics as well. Not much out there yet.

Rumor is they already have. Or that they are partenering with another known manufacturer.
