TRX 36 reviews

Since the dawn of time, Target bows have always existed with the idea that the bigger the bow, the better the shot. In their usual fashion, Mathews wants to tear down this misconception with their TRX 36 target bow that combines the raw power of a compound bow with the ingenuity of a target bow for an excellent shooting experience.

Things to Consider Before Buying

The TRX 36 combines the best attributes from the larger TRX bows and brings them into a more approachable shooting package for target archers. The 36-inch frame size means the TRX 36 has the size to be both well balanced and comfortable for the majority of archers. The frame cutouts seen on all TRX bows were a conscious choice by Mathews to help reduce the weight of the TRX bows, while still allowing them the rigidity and stability of a solid framed bow.

The riser also features 3D dampening technology that reduces post-shot vibration throughout the entire bow, so archers aren’t thrown off by the vibration that normally comes with other target bows. Just like the other new bows made by Mathews, the TRX 36 features the versatile and consistent Crosscentric cam system that helps the bow shoot arrows up to 334 fps for fast and straight-shooting shots every time. The cam system is also claimed to have one of the smoothest draws and easiest to support backwalls, so you can maintain your shooting position longer than any recurve bow.

Who Should Buy it?

The mix of balance and performance that comes with the TRX 36 makes it an incredibly compelling bow for a wide variety of archers. The comfortable frame size combined with unmatched balance in the hand means that the TRX 36 is able to provide most archers with a shooting experience that just can’t be found with other target bows. The archer who would find the most use and value out of the TRX 36 would be the somewhat skilled target archer looking for a serious upgrade to take their shooting to the next level.

Who Shouldn’t Buy it?

Despite its appealing design and build, the TRX 36 may not be the best bow for every archer. Younger or inexperienced target archers would be better off with a less powerful bow to help them learn the fundamentals before stepping up to a TRX bow. Hunters would also benefit for looking at more hunting-focused bows for their specific needs.


  • The TRX 36 offers the power and performance of larger bows into a more compact and approachable package.
  • The updated cams and target archery technology makes the bow a joy to shoot


  • The TRX line comes with a very high price tag due to the innovative and professional grade technology

Final thoughts 

Target archers look no further because the TRX 36 offers one of the most well-rounded and balanced target bows without the unwieldy frame size or weight that plagues other target bows.
