The Crosscentric Cam system design isn’t new. It’s just as great as it was last year. But the new SwitchWeight Technology is huge. Now you can change peak draw weights with a quick module swap instead of buying all new limbs. Plus, having the smaller weight range keeps your bow operating at peak performance, as bows are more efficient when at (or near) their peak draw weight.
Next, the new Engage Grip interface is a solid improvement as well. All knowledgeable archers understand that most of your bow torque comes from the grip hand. This smaller, more ergonomically focused grip makes it easier to get a consistent grip with each shot and will help reduce the likelihood of throwing your arrow off target.
It also sports the 3D Dampening Technology, which makes it a very quiet bow. Plus, it has the patent-pending dovetail mounting system for the all-new MX Ultra Rest by QAD. Also, numerous other great technologies were carried over from previous models and integrated into this hot new design.
Overall, this is a superb bow. My favorite part is how quiet it is. The Halon and Triax were quiet. But the Vertix is even quieter. No one thought that possible. And anyone who’s ever had a deer “jump the string” knows how important a quiet bow is. Because I’ve looked at the math — it’s virtually impossible (with today’s technology) to beat a string-jumping deer with a faster bow. But you can decrease that risk with a quieter one. And that’s exactly the reason this bow stands out from the crowd.

This bow is built on a very rugged and stable platform. Don’t believe me? Just shoot it a while. It fits a wide range of users with adjustable draw weights and lengths. It boasts the Crosscentric Cam technology. This leads to arrows as fast as 338 fps. It also comes with the new and improved Engage Grip. This produces better comfort and performance with a more consistent handle on the weapon.

The 2019 MXR is a one-of-a-kind, high-performance hunting bow offering accuracy and speeds traditionally found in higher-priced bows. Built around Mission's Crosscentric Cam technology, the MXR is powerful and efficient. The 7-inch brace height enhances forgiveness and accuracy, while the proven cam system generates 324 feet per second for performance you can be confident in. The MXR also features a new grip, refined with a thinner, more ergonomic profile that minimizes torque and enhances comfort. This performance-inspired bow is unlike any in its category. It comes in Realtree Original camo.

This bow is nothing short of phenomenal. It shoots and feels great. It’s super quiet and string jumping will be less of a factor due to the level of vibration dampening and quietness. Needless to say, this thing is a burner, though, as it’s optimized for energy and speed as well. It features the Crosscentric Cam Technology, Engage Grip and more.
