The Mathews DXT is Mathews latest addition to their wildly popular Drenalin series of bows. First was the Drenalin, a 33 inch axle to axle high performance hunting bow with a radical new slim limb design. Next was the Drenalin LD (stands for "long draw") which was the same limbs and cams as the Drenalin mounted on a much longer risor giving an axle to axle length of 37 inches and allowing for draw length of up to 31 inches. Shortly after the Drenalin LD was released Mathew, s released the DXT, a 29 3/4 axle to axle version of the Drenalin. However , unlike the Drenalin LD the DXT uses a slightly different cam which yields about two feet per second increased velocity over the standard Drenalin.
When my proshop received our DXT demo from Mathews it almost caused a real fight about who would get to shoot it first! We soon settled down, equipped it with a sight and a whisker biscuit rest,and took turns shooting it in our range. Everyone was in agreement that the draw cycle was just like the Drenalin, however to our amazement it seemed to recoil less then the Drenalin despite being smaller and lighter in mass. This was opposite of what we expected, usually lighter bows exhibit more recoil. We could not help but be impressed by the low recoil of our test Mathews DXT!.
Next we conducted some quick comparison speed testing between the Mathews DXT test bow, a Hoyt Katera, and a PSE X-force, all set at 29 inches and 70 lbs. As expected the PSE X-force proved the fastest, shooting 319 fps and outdoing the DXT by 10 feet per second with the same arrow. The DXT was next in speed at 309 while the Hoyt Katera was a full 5 feet slower then the DXT even though Hoyt gives it an eight feet per second greater IBO speed then Mathews claims for the DXT. (all speeds are a 3 shot average with a 350 grain arrow) Our conclusion - the DXT really shines in the speed department, it has a full 7 inches of brace height, (a higher brace height means a slower but more forgiving bow) yet still nearly matches the speed of the PSE X-Force which only has a wrist slapping 6 inches of brace height.
