The Halon X crossover bow is built to perform in the field or on the range. Measuring 35" axle to axle, the Halon X features a perimeter weighted mini-crosscentric cam system that generates speeds up to 330 fps.

"I've been completely immersed in the archery industry for the better part of the last two decades. The innovation in bow design during that period has been unprecedented in terms of increasing speed, accuracy, and shootability while decreasing hand shock, noise, and overall size of weapon. It's a great time to be an archer whether you are brand new to the sport or a 35+ year participant like myself.

After shooting the Halon X from Mathews for nearly a year, I couldn't help but tell all of my archery friends about how well it balanced, aimed, and shot in my hands. It shot so well that I wasn't sure I should even trust my own results with the bow, so I enlisted the opinion of my shooting mentor and elk hunting Guru, Dan Evans, for an opinion that was more qualified than my own. After cycling a ton of arrows through it, he and I agreed that it is an incredible balance of forgiveness and precision that is wrapped up in a package that is still ideal to carry as a hunting bow.

The Halon X is the best bow I've ever pointed at fur or foam. Give this thing a test drive at your local dealer and it's likely that you'll have a hard time not leaving with one in your hands. I loved mine so much, I bought a second one this year so I could have two. I've only had identical bows twice in my archeyr career, and the last time I did it was over 10 years ago. In short, I'm a believer!" - Jerrod Lile, Huntin' Fool CEO and Hunt Advisor
