Mathews introduces its newest bow model - the Phase4TM. Engineered with new Resistance Phase DampingTM Technology to drastically reduce vibration and built compatible with a completely redesigned line of Bridge-LockTM Stabilizers, the Phase4 is the stealthiest hunting system to date.

“Prior to becoming part of the Huntin’ Fool team, I had the privilege of managing an archery products company for about 14 years. Each year, there was pressure to provide something ‘new’ for the annual Archery Trade Association (ATA) show that occurs in January. This was a daunting task with arrow rests and broadheads in our brand, but it paled in comparison to the bow manufacturers! Their job was literally hundreds of times worse, in my opinion, because bow design has already come lightyears from the earliest modern archery equipment and there isn’t much room for improvement. Although I’ve been out of that rat race for nearly a decade now, it’s still the first thing I think about when the new bows hit the market each year. As you can imagine, I’m pretty leery of the ‘latest and greatest’ and it takes a lot to impress me.

More importantly, I have long-term relationships with the archery retailers who have to start over each year with the new bows when it comes to tuning them for the best results in the field. All that being said, somehow Mathews has pulled off the seemingly impossible yet again with the release of the Phase4. Without exception, my conversations with every Mathews dealer I know has confirmed that this is the quietest and smoothest bow they’ve ever built, all while producing blazing speeds on a lightweight chassis. If you haven’t shot one yet, visit your local dealer and see what the hype is all about. You won’t be disappointed!” – Jerrod Lile, CEO & Hunt Advisor
