Mathews® Introduces New 2017 Bows

mathews-stoke-bow

From Mathews:

Sparta, Wisconsin – After an extremely successful year with the 2016 HALON®, Mathews introduces its 2017 hunting line with three new offerings featuring the highly efficient and powerful CROSSCENTRIC™ cam: HALON® 32, AVAIL™ and STOKE™.

“This year is all about expansion of our CROSSCENTRIC cam technology,” said Matt McPherson, Owner and CEO of Mathews Archery. “We want to make this extremely accurate, high-speed system available to all archers seeking a premium shooting experience.”

The new HALON 32 is a longer version of the award-winning HALON, providing an enhanced string angle and superior stability, while still delivering speeds up to 350 fps. Like its predecessor, the HALON 32 is powered by the highly efficient CROSSCENTRIC cam, which employs a partially concentric string payout and AVS® technology to produce a stealthy draw and consistent accuracy. Its true-center nocking point ensures straight and level nock travel, enhancing shot-to-shot consistency. Outfitted with the FlatBack Grip™ and industry-leading Harmonic Damper® and Harmonic Stabilizer®, the HALON 32 is rock solid and deadly quiet.

At less than 4 pounds with a 30 inch axle-to-axle and a 6 inch brace height, the AVAIL is compact and provides women truly unmatched performance. Featuring draw lengths that range 22 to 28 inches and draw weight up to 60 pounds, the AVAIL delivers speeds up to 320 feet per second (IBO speed at 30″ draw would be 340 fps). Its CROSSCENTRIC cam and AVS technology produce a smooth draw and consistent accuracy while delivering massive downrange energy.

The 2017 STOKE is the most advanced youth bow ever created. Like the HALON 32 and AVAIL, the STOKE utilizes CROSSCENTRIC cam and AVS technology to provide unmatched accuracy and kinetic energy down range. At just over 27 inches axle-to-axle and speeds up to 314 feet per second (IBO speed at 30″ draw would be 344 fps), this compact and lightweight bow offers young archers high performance and top-of-the-line craftsmanship.

“With the high efficiency of the CROSSCENTRIC cam technology, the opportunity to create the highest performing youth bow was right in front of us, and we had to do it,” said McPherson. “This is the finest youth bow archery has ever seen.”

For 2017, Mathews is also offering new finishes, including GORE Optifade Elevated II and Open Country, as well Under Armour Ridge Reaper Barren.

Go to Mathewsinc.com for full specifications, finish options, and more information on the 2017 hunting line, and experience them at your local Mathews Retailer.

 

Weaver Grand Slam Riflescope with MultiStop Turret Makes Long Range Shooting Easier Than Ever Before

Weaver Grand Slam MultiStop Scope

From Weaver Optics:

OVERLAND PARK, Kansas (July 21, 2016) – Weaver, an industry leader in high-performance optics and mounting systems for more than 80 years, continues its quest to revitalize the Grand Slam series and rewrite optics history by introducing the new Grand Slam Riflescope with MultiStop Turret.

The revolutionary MultiStop Turret system lets shooters build their own custom ballistic turret for a fast, precise hold on distant targets, and then reconfigure it for different loads and firearms.

Designed to ensure accuracy and eliminate hold-over, color-coded bands on the turret can be adjusted to perfectly match any load. Simply turn the turret to the band color that corresponds to the correct distance, hold dead-on and watch your target tumble.

To further engender ease of use and downrange proficiency, the custom aluminum lens cap provides a heads-up range/color reference card for fast turret stop selection. Shooters can visit www.weaveroptics.com/BallisticCalculator to set up their scope and print off a custom dope sheet to place in the lens cap for handy reference.

Available in 4-16x 44mm and 5-20x 50mm options, the Grand Slam Riflescope with MultiStop Turret also features precision-ground, fully multi-coated lenses for clear edge-to-edge viewing. Rugged one-piece, 1-inch tube construction is standard, as is Argon purging to eliminate internal fogging.

The scope also offers side-focus parallax adjustment for long-range precision; a cross-balanced spring system for repeatable high-precision windage and elevation adjustment; and an improved erector spring design that maximizes force and uniformity throughout travel.

Weaver, a Vista Outdoor, Inc. brand, has more than 80 years of experience creating the world’s most reliable optics and mounting systems. For more information, visit www.weaveroptics.com.

Bushnell Launches New Trophy and Trophy Xtreme Optics Lines

Bushnell Trophy Extreme Scope

From Bushnell:

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. – May 16, 2016 – Bushnell, an industry leader in high-quality optics that are waterproof, fog-proof and shock proof, announced a complete re-engineering of the company’s popular Trophy line of hunting optics. In addition, Bushnell is now offering a new feature-laden Trophy Xtreme line of binoculars, riflescopes, spotting scopes and laser rangefinders for hunting, outdoor and birding enthusiasts.

Bushnell Trophy optics have been trusted for years, and the addition of the all-new Trophy Xtreme line provides even more performance for serious hunters and sport enthusiasts. Both lines will carry the Bushnell “No Questions Asked” Lifetime Warranty. Regardless of how these optics are broken, Bushnell has one response: “Yes, that’s covered.” The No Questions Asked Lifetime Warranty, launched in early 2016, applies to all riflescopes, binoculars and spotting scopes in the Trophy and Trophy Xtreme product families.

“We’re thrilled with the results of the new Trophy Xtreme and updated Trophy lines,” said Curtis Smith, Bushnell Product Director. “We’re delivering top-line performance at a great value to the customer. Plus, no matter what happens, we will stand behind these products, no questions asked.”

Both versions of binoculars offer fully multi-coated lenses in an armored chassis. The optics are waterproof, fogproof and built to take a beating while delivering best-in-class durability and clarity. Trophy Xtreme versions offer improved three-step eyecups to provide better fit and comfort, along with larger objective lenses and higher magnification.

The new Trophy riflescopes come in seven configurations and six reticle options for edge-to-edge clarity and best-in-class 91% light transmission. Bushnell’s exclusive Rainguard HD waterproofing and fogproof lenses put these scopes ahead of the competition. The Trophy Xtreme scopes feature 30mm tubes and 4x magnification ratios. They offer increased brightness and clearer images. Illuminated and long-range versions are also available.

The new TrophyXtreme spotting scopes are offered in 50mm or 60mm objective lenses, have up to 60x magnification and utilize a porro-prism design. Users will enjoy the compact tripod, window mount, waterproof hard-sided case and soft-sided case included with this spotter. All models boast 100 percent waterproof rubber armor construction.

Difficulty ranging dark, non-reflective targets in low-light conditions is now a thing of the past, thanks to the new Full Spectrum Targeting technology found in both Trophy and Trophy Xtreme laser rangefinders. The 4x20mm Trophy laser rangefinder is rainproof, accurate to 1-yard and can reach out to a maximum distance of 850 yds. Opt for the Trophy Xtreme laser rangefinder and receive the added benefit of Angle Range Compensation (ARC) technology. ARC accounts for the steepness of the shot angle, giving shooters a true horizontal distance to the target for precise shot placement.
