All of them. Depends what you prefer. I’d go Vertix and newer(vxr, V3) personally, to get the switchweight system.

I would look for a Vertix. I felt it was as good as the VXR/V3, and it should be the cheapest of the 3 since it is the oldest.

I would pass on the Halon series... as once they got to the triax...it was a different feel.

Is this the 2021/2022 Mathews “Bash The New Bow” thread? Seems to happen every year.

Well I did it. Thought I wanted the 29 but was convinced after tons of research that the longer ATA is the way to go. I thought for sure I wanted the shorter bow because I saddle hunt but this shouldn't be an issue. I shoot more in the off season anyway.
It holds on target better and truly is smoother and quieter than my V3 31.
Gonna be a lot of fun.

Yep, mathews must of had it pulled. Can't find it any more. Censorship at its best. ( these $^&& companies and our government not wanting us to see any of the true stuff). There's been a couple more of the v3xs limbs crack now also, that I've seen.
