Mathews No Cam HTR Specs

The Mathews No Cam HTR debuted in 2015 as the flagship bow for Mathews Archery. Affectionately referred to as the Slow Cam, it was quite the polarizing bow release. The two round wheels made the draw undeniably linear with no big hump to get over. However, some shooters felt it started out (and remained) stiff throughout the draw cycle compared to the speeds it was achieving.

In order to clock the 330 fps speeds advertised, archers needed to utilize the 65% let off Rock Mods. Since most gravitate towards 85%, people weren’t seeing the advertised IBO speed through the chronograph but were feeling the stout draw cycle.

It was a big change from the silky smooth solocam draw cycle Mathews was known for. Equipped with the Focus Grip, the No Cam HTR was available in Stone, Black, Lost Camo, Lost Camo OT and Black Tactical. See the full specs for this 2015 Mathews hunting bow below.

Mathews No Cam HTR Price

Buying used bows is a great way to save some money. Frequently, you can find a flagship bow from 2 years ago for nearly half the original MSRP.

Since the Mathews No Cam HTR was discontinued in 2017, you should be able to find one at a significant discount. If I was a buyer, I would try and find a Mathews No Cam at a price near $450. This would be for the bare bow with a string in good condition.

It shouldn’t be too hard to find a Mathews No Cam HTR in this price range. Typically, I like to buy bows without accessories so I can add exactly what I’m looking for. Bow sights and arrow rests are personal choices and everyone has a favorite.

However, some sellers like to unload their entire package at once and start fresh. If that’s the case, remember that used archery accessories are also worth only a fraction of their original sale price.

If the No Cam HTR came with matching Mathews accessories, I would consider that an added value. However, once you increase your budget to $550 you open up many newer options. Even bows as new as the Mathews VXR can be found in this price range.

Despite the controversial reviews on the Mathews No Cam, I myself enjoyed the bow. The lack of vertical nock travel made tuning the bow quite easy to paper tune and get my bareshafts hitting exactly with broadheads out to 25 yards. The speed, or lack thereof, didn’t bother me as I am infrequently offered a shot longer than 30 yards while hunting. In fact, it’s on the short list of the few compound bows I regret selling.
