Features

ZebraTrophy-sq-300x300 The latest in bowstring technology, Zebra® Trophy™ is built with the new, proprietary Trophy Process™ which leverages over 20 years of experience building and testing strings for the world’s top bow manufacturers & champion, professional archers. The Trophy Process™ is a proprietary pre-conditioning process that guarantees no serving separation and the shortest “shoot-in” time of any premium bowstring.
Mathews Invented single-cam technology, an innovation that changed archery forever, launched Mathews to the top and directly resulted in the nine Solocam Advantages: most efficient, faster, more accurate, more forgiving, solid wall, less maintenance, less noise, less recoil & vibration, no synchronization problems. The Z7 Solocam™ is the SMOOTHEST Solocam Mathews has ever produced! The QCA (Quick Change Axle) is another exciting innovation from Mathews.
Grid Lock™ Technology results in a stronger, lighter-weight riser.
Mathews’ proprietary SE5 Composite SlimLimb™ Technology raises performance and efficiencies to unprecedented levels and are nearly 20% lighter than tradition V-Lock™ Limb Systems.
Parallel Limbs are yet another Mathews innovation that has been adopted by other bow companies. The more parallel a bows limbs, the more they tend to cancel each others recoil and vibration resulting in a smoother shooting bow.
Spherelock is our cutting-edge positive-locking limb cup system. Its trim, lightweight and pivots to ensure constant and positive downward limb pressure.
The Reverse Assist™ Roller Guard reduces friction for a smoother draw cycle by positioning cables in a reverse manner; in front rather than behind the roller guard.  Traditional roller guards position cables on the back side of the roller guard and cause the cables to wrap tighter as the bow is drawn back and therefore places more pressure on the cables.  The Reverse Assist™ Roller Guard allows the cable to roll with less tension in a fully contained roller guard and ultimately makes the bow smoother since there is less tension on the cable.
The Harmonic Stabilizer™ is another exciting innovation from Mathews Inc. The Harmonic Stabilizer™ will give optimum performance and dampen more than 75% of residual vibration!

While they've become the visual identifier of a Mathews bow, Harmonic Dampers are weights that float in an elastomer wheel to absorb recoil vibration in the riser. The reduction in recoil vibration is so significant in this Mathews technology that is has been licensed for use in other industries.
Without String Suppressors bow strings would whiplash back and forth between the cam and idler wheel upon release. String Suppressors deaden that vibration making for a much quieter and smoother shot.
The Dead End String Stop™ by Mathews drastically reduces vibration and virtually eliminates post-release noise.
Three Monkey Tails™ comes standard on the entire 2011 Z-Series line and equates to a minimal speed loss of 1-2 fps total with virtually all string and cable sound and vibration eliminated. Monkey Tails are available in a variety of colors. Customize your bow and view different color options installed with the Bow Visualizer
String GrubString Grubs aid in reducing string vibration in order to gain more speed.
