                        ...
       Mathews Genesis™ the first compound
       bow that covers all draw lengths (15" to 30")
          Until now, one of the challenges of
          introducing beginners to archery was
          that bows were too user specific.
          Genesis TechnologyTM changes that!




                                                         Everyone can shoot the same bow
                                                         • Kids can’t outgrow it – because there
                                                           is no specific draw length
                                                         • It’s simple to buy – no need to measure
                                                           or fit for draw length
                                                         • It’s easy to shoot – beginners won’t
                                                           develop bad habits because the draw
                                                           length is always right

       “Zero let-off” means no specific
       draw length
       Because the Genesis SystemTM eliminates let-off
       on light draw weight bows (where it’s unneces-
       sary), there are no specific draw length
       requirements. The result is a bow
       that fits virtually everyone (15" to
       30") and that a young person
                                                                                                  Colors: Red

      Never shoot any bow without an arrow on the string. Without the arrow to absorb the energy,                                          that’s fast, smooth, quiet and accurate. To ensure your bow’s peak
      dryfiring can damage your bow and can cause personal injury. Damage to your bow due to                                               performance, take a few moments to look over this owner’s manual.
      dryfiring will not be covered under the warranty.

      Periodically check strings and cables
      Always inspect your bow for frayed strings and cables. Replace damaged strings and cables
      immediately. Mathews strings can be waxed and maintained as any other fast-flight string.
      Please make sure you are using the proper string for your bow.

      The following is a breakdown of Mathews’ available cams
      and how each is adjusted for draw length:

      About the MaxCam™ on your bow
      Mathews invented the perimeter-weighted cam, technology that creates a flywheel
      effect which lengthens and strengthens the cam’s power stroke, dramatically
      increasing arrow speed while also reducing recoil. We call our perimeter-weighted
      cams "MaxCams". There are multiple different MaxCams:
      Note: MaxCams are not compatible with any Mathews
      non-MaxCam model. The use of a MaxCam™ on such models will void the
      warranty of that bow.


      High Performance (HP) Cam
      The LEAST COMPLEX, MOST ADVANCED cam ever engineered, the
      revolutionary HP Cam is superior to any cam (single cams, 11/2 cams, two cams)
      we've ever tested! This smooth shooting, straight line, high let-off cam is smokin'
      fast! And, it is available on the Mathews LX in either 80% or 65% let-off.
