Editors' review

The Hoyt Vectrix is the top notch bow from the Hoyt's 2007 line. Hoyt engineers completely redesigned the older Trykon model and applied a number of new and innovative technologies making the new Vectrix even better. With a very smooth draw cycle this is a high-performance bow that delivers great speeds.

Silencing system / Quietness and vibration

The two new technologies (StealthShot string suppression system and vibration-demolishing RizerShox) serve to eliminate as much noise as possible making this bow very quiet. The StealthShot suppression system immediately suppresses the string when you shot this bow. According to Hoyt this string suppression system reduces string oscillation by 70% and, at the same time, eliminates hand shock, arm slap, and string buzz.

Eccentric system

The Hoyt Vectrix comes with the new Vector Cam & 1/2 system which is smoother than the older one installed on the Trykon. While being smoother, the new Vector cam is still non-adjustable meaning different cams are required for individual draw lengths. If you are willing to spend more money to get a better quality bow have a look at the Hoyt Katera or Hoyt Alphamax 32 which are the next generation Hoyt bows with similar specifications and better engineering solutions.


To summarize, the Hoyt Vectrix is a high-performance bow with great shootability characteristics. Being fast and smooth, this bow is a great choice for average shooters who enjoy shooting quiet bows.

  1. It has an excellent combination of speed/smoothness/quiet shooting ability

    Version: 2007 Hoyt Vectrix


    Pros: smooth draw, good speed, forgiving

    Cons: Doesn’t have a wide range of adjustability

    Full review:
    I’ve killed 4 deer with my Vetrix and am still shooting it (in 2010). Deer have been at ranges of 10-41 yds and I’ve had full pass-throughs on every one. After 20 years of bowhunting and various bows (Bear, Golden Eagle, PSE, Hoyt), this is the smoothest bow I’ve owned. I’m considering an upgrade, but I think it will be challenging to find the "whole package" again.

  2. Sniper silent!

    Version: 2007 Hoyt Vectrix


    Pros: Super quiet and smooth

    Cons: Fixed draw lengths

    I would say that this is one of the best bows I have shot in my short time hunting. Great draw and even better shot, just ask the doe and 2 fox squirrels I shot this year. The biggest issue I have is the lack of adjustability. The one I bought wasn’t quite "perfect" for me and I’ve had a lot of trouble finding new cams. But overall, awesome bow!!!

  3. 2nd bow I’ve owned, picked up from a yard sale for $100. works and shoots perfect

    Version: 2007 Hoyt Vectrix


    Pros: everything. not adjustable cams would be a con down the road if I needed to change some settings, but for now its what I need

    Cons: im 6′6" and have big hands.. the grip on the riser feels like a twig in my hand. interchangeable maybe?

    I am new to archery and hunting as far as taking it all seriously. Was handed down a Martin Lynx Magnum a few years ago, but never had the patience to work with it. It still shoots very well with no problems but one, the cams are out of alignment. The Hoyt however.. damn.. love it. everything about it with my limited experience with brands and styles. I cant see spending $800+ on a bow with no features.. so i decided to wait and find this one at a yard sale with 10 gold tip arrows and a quick release.. for a measly $100.

  4. 1st bow I’ve owned and I’m pretty happy with it!

    Version: 2007 Hoyt Vectrix


    Pros: It has a nice smooth draw and good let off

    Cons: It’s not adjustable

    Full review:
    I started bow huntin last year and picked this up at a pawn shop for 200$ with everything on it. I have killed multiple small game animals with it and it has performed exceptionally. It is extremely accurate and quiet!
