Elk NetworkMathews Halon 32 And Avail

Gear 101 | April 26, 2017

For 2017, Mathews introduces a longer, 32-inch axle-to-axle version of last year’s popular Halon to reduce string angle at full draw and provide an edge of added stability. Also new is a slightly different riser geometry, speed nocks (as opposed to monkey tails), an all-black grip (though the design is the same Flatback grip introduced last year), and some different finish options. Retained is the Crosscentric Cam System that produces a super smooth draw cycle and level nock travel, along with Mathews AVS technology that slaves the cams together to keep them synchronized. Also back from last year are the RockMods, allowing shooters to choose between 75 percent and 85 percent let-off. Other now-familiar Mathews features such as the Reverse Assist Roller Guard and Harmonic Dampers are back as well. Available in 5-inch, 6-inch, and 7-inch brace height versions, the Halon 32 offers a top-speed (with 75 percent let-off and 5-inch brace height) of 350 fps. Peak draw weights are 40, 50, 60, or 70 pounds, with module-specific draw lengths ranging from 25-32 inches. Mass weight is 4.73 pounds. Available in Black, Optifade Elevated II, Optifade Open Country, Stone, Ridge Reaper Barren OT and Lost Camo XD, the new Halon 32 retails for $1,099. Visit www.mathewsinc.com.
